A video where Andaman Tribal girls were prompted to Dance in Nude by an off-screen voice was reportedd by The Guardian,U.K.
it is by chance this incidence has come into Public Domain.
What is shocking is that the Defence Forces were a witness to this!
The Government has instituted an Enquiry into this episode.
But the tapes, which show Jarawa tribal girls being urged by an off-screen voice to perform and what looks like an uniformed Indian security officer in the background, do not come as a major shock.
India has strict rules protecting its tribal peoples from contact with the outside world for fear they could be decimated by disease or exploited for tourism. But, as in the case of the Jarawa, those laws generally have failed to stop once-isolated groups coming in to increased contact in recent years with India’s settled communities and tourists.
The Andaman and Nicobar islands, an Indian Ocean territory which is closer to mainland Southeast Asian than India, are amongst the most remote places on earth, helping to shelter tribes there from outside influence.
Still, collusion between tour operators and law-enforcement officers means that tourists for years have been able to get close to protected tribes like the Jarawa, who number only 383 people.
