With the publication of the third issue of Adibasi as a special volume and that too before the scheduled date can be said to have achieved-what may be termed as "The end of the beginning". In this issue we present the basic data needed for the understanding of the tribal people of Orissa and for planning and their welfare. The co-operation of workers from the fields of Research and Action, which we soil through these pages, has, been generously extended to us. It is of utmost importance that the contributions from divergent fields, covering a wide range of topics, which we present here, is not just a disparate conglomeration has taken a pattern of its own. It may be true that the contours of this pattern are not yet dearly defined-but are confident that we have gathered enough momentum to achieve this. If 'Adibasi' continues in this strain and aspire to develop methods of high scientific precision to solve the problems of the tribal people in part - and also of the society as a whole.
