Metrics details. India is a country with enormous social and cultural diversity due to its positioning on the crossroads of many historic and pre-historic human migrations. The hierarchical caste system in the Hindu society dominates the social structure of the Indian populations. The origin of the caste system in India is a matter of debate with many linguists and anthropologists suggesting that it began with the arrival of Indo-European speakers from Central Asia about years ago.
Rangachari in The seven-volume work was one of several such publications resulting from the Ethnographic Survey of India project which was formally instituted by the Government of British India in The Survey was intended to record details of the manners, customs and physical features of Indian castes and tribes using in part the anthropometric methods that had first been used in India by Herbert Hope Risley for his own survey of the tribes and castes of Bengal.
An eight-year period of funding was allotted for the purpose. The British government in India appointed a Superintendent of Ethnography for each province. He was appointed Superintendent for Madras Presidency , while L. Ananthakrishna Iyer and N. Subramania Iyer were respectively appointed Superintendents for the princely states of Cochin and Travancore.
Rangachari of the Government Museum. Thurston had to overcome suspicions felt by his subjects during the conduct of the survey, and sometimes had to rely on his official position as a representative of the government in order to obtain the measurements that he needed. Some believed that Thurston had been sent on a mission to kill them in order then to display their stuffed bodies in the Madras museum, while others considered his measuring to be a prelude to their recruitment into the army or to kidnap them, and yet others thought that the equipment used to measure their height was a gallows.
A consequence of these difficulties was that his sample size was often as low as 30 — 60 members of a caste or tribe, and sometimes as little as six or seven. Nature magazine, in its September issue, described the work as. Though in some respects it may be corrected or supplemented by future research it will long retain its value as an example of out-door investigation, and will remain a veritable mine of information, which will be of value. More recently, Crispin Bates has said that Thurston generally displayed "often lurid, orientalist imaginings" in his writings and has noted of the publications produced as a consequence of the Ethnographic Survey that.
One of the most ludicrous was Thurston's study of southern India. Thurston was the curator of the government museum in Madras, and clearly saw the study of racial types among the Indians as an extension of his daily routine of labelling and pinning butterflies and of collecting and categorising the varieties of plants.

Seven human-specific Alu markers were studied in unrelated individuals from 10 endogamous groups and 2 hill tribes of Tamil Nadu and Kerala states. Average heterozygosity among caste populations was in the range of 0. Among tribes, the average heterozygosity was higher for Paliyan 0. Frequency differences were prominent in all loci studied except Alu CD4. For Alu CD4, the frequency was 0. The overall genetic difference Gst of 12 populations castes and tribes studied was 3.

Palli or Vanniyan. Aiyakannu Nayakar, in support of the caste claim to be returned as Kshatriyas, for details concerning which claim I must refer the reader to the book itself. In , a book entitled Varuna Darpanam Mirror of Castes was published, in which an attempt is made to connect the caste with the Pallavas. The Pallis have the right to present the most important camphor offering of the Mylapore Siva temple. They allege that the temple was originally theirs, but by degrees they lost their hold over it until this bare right was left to them. Some years ago, there was a dispute concerning the exercise of this right, and the case came before the High Court of Madras, which decided the point at issue in favour of the Pallis. The Pallis of that town claim it as their own, and repair it from time to time.
One of the most obvious features of political modernisation in south India has been the emergence of the politics of the caste association. From the later nineteenth century, but particularly from about , the provincial political arena became crowded with organisations claiming to represent the interests of caste groups, and appeals to caste solidarity became established in the vocabulary of modern politics. From that time onwards, caste political activity has grown in size and scope and has deeply coloured south Indian political history. This essay attempts to examine some of the reasons for this development. Unable to display preview.
