The Jarawa: an ethnic minority in Asia facing extinction

"Every day, tourists travel in SUV convoys, escorted by the Indian army, to take pictures of the Jarawa and throw bananas at them." Human safaris, kidnappings and forced labour... The Jarawa are threatened by an abject tourism.

    This is indeed a painful fact and as an Indian, rather an informed Indian I feel really sorry about such acts. Even when I visited Andamans I had similar views regarding the road that had been constructed in the jarwa reserve, where they are showcased as trophies to earn income. Even I tried to investigate further but as I don't have the authority I was not allowed. If I can do anything at all I would be really happy.

    It's a bit strange seeing this video. I recently visited this place and we were passing through Jarawa land. It is protected land, well demarcated, and I don't think people can stop and loiter around. We were instructed to switch off our phones. We did see some Jarawa men, fully clothed btw going about their daily routine and waving at us. Most of the Andaman is off limits for tourists and you can't visit Nicobar either without permits. Very strange to see this video.
