Dr. J. Jayachithra

Abstract :

 In India we have achieved significant progress in the field of science and technology, agriculture, medicine etc. In spite of that we have deprived communities like the Narikuravar in Tamil Nadu, who are struggling for their rights to lead a socially enriched life with education, economics and social well being. This article aims to shed light on the life style of the Narikuravar community residing at Palamalai Nagar, piyoor panchayat, Sivagangai District, Tamil Nadu. A considerable population of 1473 Narikuravar community is living in palamalainagar, sivagangai district. The pitiable condition is that they are living together with families of their married children in a single roomed house. Among the school going Narikuravar children only 30% to 40 % show regular attendance. The dropout rate is also getting higher every year. As their earnings cannot full fill their needs, they are borrowing money from money lenders and repayment becomes a great burden for these people. Child marriage is one of the major menaces confronting this community. Recent announcement of Central Government to include Narikuravar community in Scheduled Tribe category would light the lamp in their lives.
