One of the lesser known tribal communities of India, the Baiga, inhabit the fairly inaccessible regions of Madhya Pradesh in Dindori district. The essay traces the cultural aspects of the community providing a glimpse into their life, their cultural practices and traditions – many continuing to this day. Combined with a selection of 60 photographs of the region and its people, the book provides a deeper understanding of the life of a community at a crossroads. The book has been published as a collaborative project between INTACH and The Tribal Fund
