Livelihood Strategies of a Nomadic Hunting Community of Eastern Rajasthan
Conducted over a period of six months, the study involved extensive dialogue with individual Bawaria in the Alwar district of Rajasthan, and participatory workshops. Subsequently a detailed questionnaire was developed and 105 individuals in the region were interviewed. The aims and objectives of the study were as follows: (1) to enable an ethnographic account of the Bawaria community; (2) to understand their livelihood strategies, especially in view of the ban on their main occupation, hunting; (3) to understand the relations they have with different state agencies and upper caste landowners on whose land they build their semipermanent settlements.
