One morning in 1969, out of the blue, I received a letter which both distressed and astonished me. It was from a Prof. S. R. Das in Calcutta, who requested me to accept, for eventual analysis, a mountain of anthropometric data he had accumulated, as he was ill and did not expect to survive to analyse it himself. The data provided the astonishment; twenty-two anthropometric characters recorded every six months or a year, over a period of 14 years, in a mixed longitudinal study of some 560 children, aged six months to twenty years. Most were in families with siblings also in the study, and every child was measured every time by S. R. Das himself. The archive was unique, combining the personal anthropometry of R. H. Whitehouse in the Harpenden Growth Study and the family approach of the Fels Growth Study. This was a study of which neither I, nor anyone of my acquaintance, had heard. Even in India, Prof. Das' work was scarcely known. It turned out Das was a scholarly man, quiet and unassuming, absolutely committed to his Sarsuna-Barisha Growth Study,just the obverse of the professional showman. Clearly this was not a request I could refuse, although I already had in hand enough projects to occupy Siva himself.

The People of India project, a massive exercise carried out by the Anthropological Survey of India, has generated a wealth of information on the hundreds of communities, castes and tribes which exist in this country. The subjects covered include culture, society, location, language, script,biological variation, educational level, impact of devlopment, food habits, rituals, and work practices.The present volume comprises all the material which was collected on the existing biological information available for nearly 900 Indian communities. The material was gathered from the All India Anthropometric Survey and the All India Bio-Anthropological Surveys conducted by the AnthropologicalSurvey of India.The larger set of quantitative data is contained in tables within this volume which deal with somatometry, dermatoglyphics, blood groups, serum proteins, biochemical variants and various genetic traits. A major finding of this exercise is the heterogeneity of biological traits, and the pattern oftheir distribution across social categories and territories. The data also suggests that much ground still remains to be covered vis-a-vis biological on India - in sharp contrast to the cultural and linguistic material that the Survey has now made available.
