Utility Of Human Body Measurement In The Search Of Identity Of An Unknown
Group "Dhankut" Of Bahraich District (U. P.) Of India
"Dhankut" a group of India was neither in the government records nor in the gazetteer of
the district. So far their social and caste stratification (which is must for India) is
unknown. In this regard, this group is very far from government facilities and basic
requirements of Homo Sapiens but their social identity is nil. I have done extensive work
on the group. In the light of head form, stature, hair color and texture, eye form and the
color of the body. This group has been identified, so that they can be positioned at their
real position in the society.
In my proposed paper, I will discuss how body measurements are useful in the search of
identity of an unknown group and its real ecological origin. Body measurement makes a
good contribution for a Homo Sapiens group to locate its real place in the society.
