Narendra's latest Dispatch from Bastar, a tribal region in Central India, from the occasional series edited by Anita Roy
Narendra's association with tribal communities and ecology began when he undertook field research from 1980 to 1985 in the Abujhmad region of Bastar, Central India. Though the project formally concluded in 1985, he continues work on field study activities in Bastar on issues of adivasi ecological-cultural expressions, notions of forests and wilds, nature-inspired modes and institutions of governance, adivasi survival in a market economy, ecology, knowledge and learning. His dispatches are published as an occasional series on Dark Mountain.
