I entirely agree with your views and sentiments. It is high time people realise that in the name of progress some traditions have to be given up, and other traditions continued perhaps in future to be given up. Progress however will occur in the stages of evolution and thanks to Darwins theory this may not happen in our lifetime. More so if there are vested interests politically and religiously to keep them ( tribals) isolated and keeping them away from civilisation.
Let us continue to persevere at the grass root level in whatever way we can.
