The purpose of this website is threefold: to showcase new initiatives in education, to encourage educators to address misconceptions, and to facilitate independent research. Wherever students ask the right questions, their teachers need reliable sources while listening to people belonging to the “tribal” communities concerned (some, but not all, being referred to as “Ādivāsi”). The value of their insights and recommendations is further enhanced by way of obtaining up-to-date information. All this is easily done thanks to the websites of Indian newspapers, magazines and other web portals which include the People’s Archive of Rural India (https://ruralindiaonline.org).

Those undertaking in-depth research are bound to benefit from accessing full-text PhD theses shared by many Indian universities via Shodhganga: a reservoir of Indian theses. These documents consist of searchable PDF-documents.
