This paper deals with the ethnobotany of the Onge tribe. Brief accounts of the geography of the island, ethnology, and history of ethnobotanical studies in addition to the methodology of the present work are given. Plants used in everyday life, such as for bows and arrows, dugouts and canoes, fibers, food, medicines, and shelter, are described and discussed.
It is safe to say that the original population of the Andaman and Nicobar islands consist of aboriginal indigenous people, i. They have been dwelling in the forests and jungles of the islands for centuries, lead a hunter-gatherer lifestyle, and appear to have lived in substantial isolation for thousands of years. The Andamanese and Nicobarese can be split into two broad tribal groups mainly based on their place of origin.
All are nomadic hunter-gatherers, hunting wild pig and monitor lizard, and catching fish with bows and arrows. They also collect honey, roots and berries from the forest. The great Andamanese is a collective term used for 10 different tribes that lived in most of the large islands in the Andaman. These tribes spoke different but related languages were of Negrito origin and were related by culture and geography. Until the late 18th century, the Andamanese peoples were preserved from outside influences by their fierce rejection of contacts which included killing any shipwrecked foreigners and by the remoteness of the islands.
But after the coming of the British, things changed. When the British first tried to enter the island in around the Andamanese tribes, with their total population of , were able to resist them, resulting in the British to move to Port Conwallis and withdraw from all attempts to obtain Port Blair and Ross island for about 60 years.
However they made another attempt to capture Port Blair in and succeeded, only to be met by the soldiers of the great Andamanese tribe in The tribe organized a well planned attack on the high ranking british officials but they were betrayed by an escaped convict Dudhanth Tiwari who had lived with the tribals for several months.
As a result of the betrayal, the great Andamanese suffured heavily. They were fighting with bows and arrows against guns and artillery. Most of the young male population was killed in the battle. Population dwindled as and threatened the genes for the future survival of the tribes. Imported diseases, to which the islanders had no immunity further effected population and by only great Andamanese were left. They shifted base to Straight island and that is where they live today. Today only two tribes Jeru and Bo remain in significant number; the other 8 have been mostly extinct.
The cultural and linguistic identities of the individual tribes have largely been lost; their members now speak mostly Hindi. Although the Great Andamanese on Strait Island still obtain some of their diet from hunting, fishing and gathering, they now consume rice and other Indian food, and are dependent on support by the Indian government for survival.
They now practice some agriculture, and have established some poultry farms. Onges are one of the most primitive tribes in India. They belong to the Negrito racial stock and they have been mainly seen near the Dugong creek in Little Andaman. They are dependent on the food provided by nature and are a semi-nomadic tribe. The onge population fell post british colonization from in to 92 in but has remained stable since.
At present the Onge population have opened up to the locals in the island. They have now experienced the impact of outsiders, as efforts at befriending them have proved successful. They have been provided with pucca houses, food, clothes, medicine etc. They eat turtle, fish, roots and jack fruits etc.
They have developed artistry and crafts. The Onges can make canoes. A primary school has also been functioning at the Dugong Creek settlement of Onges. The population of this tribe is stable and is at present A major drawback is the addiction of the Deugong mails to alcohol. Enquiries into ways of controlling this addiction are taking place. With a population between to , the Jarawa tribe is one of the largest tribes in Andaman islands.
The Jarawa are still at the primitive stage of life on earth. They entirely depend upon forest and sea for food.
Wild boar and monitor lizard are consumed. Various kinds of fruit , honey and tubers are parts of their diet too. The jarawas of both sexes go complete naked. However some ornaments made with shells and palm leaves are worn by them but these are not in the sense to cover their nudity. This tribe has lived in the southeast part of Andaman but after the British regime they shifted to the western region of the island.
The great Andaman trunk road is a km long road that connects Port Blair to the western regions of Andaman. Though it proves beneficial for tourism and business, it has proved life-threatening for the Jarawas. This trunk road cuts through the jungles that are home to the Jarawa community. Since , the indian governments with the help of anthropologists have tried to make contact with the tribe. They tried giving gifts of food, coconuts, etc but they were always met with hostility.
The tribe showers arrows and stones at whoever comes near the island. In , 2 fishermen who were fishing illegally near the island were shot by sentinilese archers. The helicopters which was sent to retrieve the bodies was also greeted by arrows. After the tsunami the government again tried to help them by sending a few employees to the island with gifts but again, the same response followed.
Presently the policy of the indian government is to leave the Sentinilese alone.

The purpose of this paper is to present the Andaman and Nicobar Islands ANI as a case to delineate contextual and often paradoxical challenges in implementing centrally sponsored schemes in a small island economy. However, using examples of two public health and nutrition schemes, the paper argues that unless ANI's development indicators are compared over few years, public policy may fail to identity its development challenges and continue its rhetoric while in reality, health outcomes may be regressing. The paper used case study research design involving mixed method approach.
Cholera is one of the few bacterial diseases capable of pandemic spread. Seven distinct pandemics of cholera have been recorded since The sixth and probably the fifth were caused by the classic V. The pandemic potential of cholera is exemplified by the rapid spread of it in Latin America once reintroduced there in after a century of absence. The seventh cholera pandemic spread from Sulawesi to other Indonesian islands and by the end of it had spread to the entire Southeast Asian archipelago. In , V.

Простите, у нас нет ни одной рыжеволосой, но если вы… - Ее зовут Капля Росы, - сказал Беккер, отлично сознавая, что это звучит совсем уж абсурдно. Это странное имя, по-видимому, не вызвало у женщины каких-либо ассоциаций. Она извинилась, предположила, что Беккер перепутал агентство, и, наконец, положила трубку. Первая попытка закончилась неудачей. Нахмурившись, Беккер набрал второй номер. И на другом конце сразу же сняли трубку.
Там, в темноте, ярко сияла клавиатура. Стратмор проследил за ее взглядом и нахмурился Он надеялся, что Сьюзан не заметит эту контрольную панель. Эта светящаяся клавиатура управляла его личным лифтом. Стратмор и его высокопоставленные посетители попадали в шифровалку и уходили незаметно для остальных сотрудников. Лифт спускался на пятьдесят ярдов вниз и затем двигался вбок по укрепленному туннелю еще сто девять ярдов в подземное помещение основного комплекса агентства. Лифт, соединяющий шифровалку с основным зданием, получал питание из главного комплекса, и оно действовало, несмотря на отключение питания шифровалки. Стратмору, разумеется, это было хорошо известно, но даже когда Сьюзан порывалась уйти через главный выход, он не обмолвился об этом ни единым словом.
Сигара умами безжизненно свисала изо рта. Сделка всей его жизни только что распалась - за каких-то несколько минут. Стратмор продолжал спуск. Сделка отменяется.
Пальцы у него онемели. Он упал. И в следующее мгновение не осталось ничего, кроме черной бездны. ГЛАВА 102 Стратмор спустился на нижний этаж ТРАНСТЕКСТА и ступил с лесов в дюймовый слой воды на полу.
Их отношения развивались медленно и романтично: встречи украдкой, если позволяли дела, долгие прогулки по университетскому городку, чашечка капуччино у Мерлутти поздно вечером, иногда лекции и концерты. Сьюзан вдруг поняла, что стала смеяться гораздо чаще, чем раньше.
