The book is all about the biocultural dimension of child-rearing practices among
the marginalized communities of West Odisha.Exposure to the skill of child-rearing
practices might help the concerned researchers and development personnel to know
about the problems and prospects of maternal and child health at the grassroots. Thus, the
purpose of this book is to generate awareness about general problems and techniques to
overcome difficulties and help people fight against the ethnocentric ideas on
childcare.The book intends to help students, researchers, teachers and the service
providers like nutritionists, doctors, nurses, extension workers,Government and non-
Government developers to understand the background of the community concerned and
to prescribe culture befitting scientific approaches on mother and childcare as basics of
human well-being. This is a fact that no culture is superior to other cultures.
