|Abstract:||Scheduled Tribes, who constitute a major segment of the society, live mainly in nature's lap, away from modern civilization, with their traditional values, customs, beliefs, and myths and primarily depend on natural resources for their livelihood. The shyness of the tribals, cultural practices, and taboos, cultural resistance to new programmes, remote inaccessible areas are the major bottlenecks in tribal development. Women in tribal society are doubly disadvantaged as they still face multiple types of disabilities, discrimination and injustice due to their distinct identities, gender, and ethnicities. Despite discrimination and limited opportunities many of these women, fighting against all odds, have added glory to the state and nation by demonstrating excellence in various fields. This Coffee Table Book 'ADISHAKTI: Tribal Women Achievers of Odisha' is a modest attempt to explore and compile the journey of few extraordinary tribal women of Odisha to recognize the 'Unsung Heroes' who have risen above the disadvantaged circumstances and have converted their limitations to opportunities. These women have set an unparalleled example by achieving laurels despite several disabilities thereby creating an immeasurable impact in the society and stand as an example for the society, particularly young girls and women to emulate.|
