Omprakash S Bone has a long-time acquaintance with the
Mannewar Tribals, having researched on them in detail through census
researches, a thorough perusal of their ways and customs, census references,
historical and anthropological surveys.
The author attempts to bridge the gap by trying to make the
tribals aware of their rights and privileges, so as to bring them out of their
poverty and illiteracy, ills that keep them moored in their ignorance,
especially in the states of Maharashtra, M.P. and Chhattisgarh.
This is a book that will appeal to lovers of history and to
all those who strive to fight for tribal rights.

survey mentioned in the book. Presently the author is working on a subject titled
