Look inside the book:
They speak a Mund?ri dialect, called Gadba, after their tribal name, and are one of the two Mund?ri tribes found so far south as Vizagapatam, the other being the Savars.2 Their tribal organisation is not very strict, and a Bhatra, a Parja, a Muria, or a member of any superior caste may become a Gadba at an expenditure of two or three rupees. ...We know that an extensive traffic in children destined for human sacrifice used to go on in the Khond country, and that the P?ns were the agents who sometimes purchased, but more frequently kidnapped, the children, whom they sold to the Khonds, and were so debased that they occasionally sold their own offspring, though they knew of course the fate that awaited them.2 Moreover, apart from the demand for sacrificial purposes, the practice of selling men as agricultural labourers was until a few years ago by no means uncommon in the wilder parts of the Chota N?gpur Division, where labour is scarce and cash payments are almost unknown.
