This is my first attempt at trying to build a Wiki-like knowledge base on top of the Flutterby content management system.

This is a place for explanation, description and static links on a topic that's either too broad to be covered under a single link, or that you're just too lazy to find the real link to.

By Ramachandra Guha, a biography of Verrier Elwin, the first non-Indian to gain Indian citizenship following the withdrawal of the British. Elwin was an anthropologist who worked with the tribal cultures, and the works of his life touches on the problems with the Ghandi monoculture, the issues of introducing technologies into tribal cultures, and many of the problems with respecting the often violent cultures of tribes.
