White as Milk and Rice by Nidhi Dugar Kundalia

white as milk and rice

White as Milk and Rice by Nidhi Dugar Kundalia has come out on 23rd March 2020. The book weaves together prose, oral narratives, and Adivasi history to tell the stories of six remarkable tribes of India. The book has been published by Penguin India.

The Maria girls from Bastar practise sex as an institution before marriage, but with rules-one may not sleep with a partner more than three times; the Hallaki women from the Konkan coast sing throughout the day-in forests, fields, the market and at protests; the Kanjars have plundered, looted and killed generation after generation, and will show you how to roast a lizard when hungry. The original inhabitants of India, these Adivasis still live in forests and hills, with religious beliefs, traditions and rituals so far removed from the rest of the country that they represent an anthropological wealth of our heritage.
