TSunami and tribes getting extinct


Two days have gone by and the TSunami death toll is rising. Its already 12500 in India with thousands more missing. The state of Andhra Pradesh where the Microsoft India center is based is also one of the worst hit states with hundreds of people dead along the coastal region of the state. MS has also joined into the relief operation by giving funds and matching employee contributions.


On another note one of the worst hit areas of India the Andaman and Nicobar islands are also home to some of the rarest tribes on our planet. With the most isolated community on earth the Sentinelese living here. Many of the tribes living in remote islands have only 100 in population and might have gone extinct after this natural disaster. Government is yet to reach these islands and find out. Sentinelese and Jarawa community also does not establish contact with any outsiders and no one knows what has happened to them.

    Good part is that now the coast gaurds and the Naval scouts have kind of verified that these tribes were not as much affected as it was initially feared 🙂

    Hello. My name is Priti Singh and I’m a Research Scholar and Writer from New Delhi.  I write to you as the author of the coffee table book “The Islands and Tribes of Andaman and Nicobar.” I happened to come across your site and wanted to bring to your notice the publication of such an exquisite, informative and engaging book. The book of course is sui generis in the sense that it is the first of its kind on the place and unlike a regular glossy. It is extremely exhaustive – detailing every aspect of this very unique archipelago which in all probability is the last bastion of primeval mankind and one of the few places left on earth that remain un-spoilt by man’s rapacity.

    The islands were devastated by the Dec. 2004 tsunami that ravaged large parts of Southeast Asia. The book serves to spread a good word about the place and its people and goes a step further in trying to do its bit to help revive tourism there (as 60% of the island’s population is directly/indirectly dependent on the industry) that was badly hit by the catastrophe.

    “The Islands and Tribes of Andaman and Nicobar” illustrates and showcases all the wondrous facets of the archipelago and contains some very rare archival images and documents that give it an engaging edge. The book has been well received and features in the Nov.2006 issue of the Incredible India magazine. The foreword of the book has been written by the world renowned wildlife photographer Mr. Rajesh Bedi (whose brilliant images of the place and its aboriginal tribes form an important part of the book).

    If interested, you could go to http://www.prakashbooks.com or alternatively contact me or Mr. Gaurav Sabharwal, Director, Sales and Marketing – Prakash Books for further details. Ph. 91-11-23247062-65  Fax. 91-11-23246975

    Looking forward to a favourable response.

    Thank you and Regards,

    Priti Singh
