I am happy  to write message in the website creation for the project entitled “Screening and create the data registry of disease pattern in Tribal communities and provide the Health Care Strategies, genetic Counseling and create the awareness camp to schedule Tribes population in Tamil Nadu,” that brings together the information data of tribes in Tamil Nadu. It makes available the information about the diversity of tribes and the strengths of their community. The tribal knowledge will help in renewing our focus on India’s indigenous communities like tribes.

Wisdom to form effective partnerships requires a strong communication and interaction skills to bring out good result.  Effective collaboration requires awareness of the intricacy and details of collaboration as is often seen in the variety of programs or services in which it occurs including teams, consultation, co-teaching, co-planning, co-assessing, and family partnerships etc. Therefore in this context the collaborative research project initiated by two departments is a good start for professional development. Bharathiar University is a collection of teams, working together to elevate the university to the next level in the global arena. Hence this type of collaborative project and exchange of ideas are more significant and need of the hour. Maintaining an always-on collaborative environment can deserve good results to the community.

In closing, I reflect that this website creation of this NRDMS project have forced me to become familiarized with a broad, encompassing array of tribal issues. I realize that further work is necessary with each individual component, yet I remain optimistic that improvement will inevitably result in bring out information on tribes.

Therefore I appreciate the efforts of Dr.V.Balachander, Principal Investigator and Assistant Professor, Department of Molecular Biology and Human Genetics and Dr.Kamalaveni, Co-Principal Investigator and Assistant Professor, Department of Women’s Studies for initiating an interdisciplinary project.  I wish them all success.

I am fortunate to carve up my experience of this collaborative project with Department of Women’s Studies. Natural Resources Data Management System (NRDMS) was commenced in 1982 by the Department of Science and Technology as a multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional R&D programme. The design on working together in this collaborative project emerged primarily with sketching out objectives with common focus.  Working on reviews and field visits gave clear idea to work on a common proposal. The relevant work done with tribal women, ahead of this project gave rise to collaborative proposal and my idea was to include the Department of Women’s Studies to carry out dry lab work.

As a first step in this project we planned to carry out the dry lab work in The Nilgiris which is 52 km away from Coimbatore. The Nilgiris district constitutes four taluks comprising of Ooty, Coonoor, Kotagiri and Gudalur and then extend it to whole of Tamil Nadu.  These areas are occupied by the indigenous tribal people. My core interest to work on consanguineous marriages aroused through review articles. Hence it is my duty to thank the funding agency, the Natural Resources Data Management System (NRDMS) Programme which was launched in 1982 with the objectives of developing and demonstrating scientific methods and techniques for local level planning under ministry of science and technology. Moreover I extend my heartfelt thanks to our honorable Vice Chancellor for supporting us in all ways to make this project a victorious. My earnest thanks to Registrar In charge madam and all other administrative staffs in Bharathiar University who have put their efforts in making this project jubilant.

Ensuing wet lab work with blood samples for tribal population will discover new insight about tribal women and consanguineous marriages. Therefore I thank Dr.Kamalaveni, Co-Principal Investigator and Assistant Professor, Department of Women’s Studies for her continuous support in carrying out dry lab work and Ms.Divya, Project Fellow, Department of Human Genetics and Molecular Biology in this project deserves appreciation in completing the task.

I am happy to share my experience of this collaborative project with Department of Human Genetics and Molecular Biology. Natural Resources Data Management System (NRDMS) was initiated in 1982 by the Department of Science and Technology as a multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional R&D programme. The idea on working together in this collaborative project emerged in the year 2015 when the proposals were invited by NRDMS. Initially sketching out objectives with common focus was crumb difficult, however working on reviews and field visits gave clear idea to work on a common proposal. The relevant work done with tribal women, ahead of this project gave rise to collaborative proposal.

At this juncture I would like thank the funding agency, the Natural Resources Data Management System (NRDMS) Programme which was launched in 1982 with the objectives of developing and demonstrating scientific methods and techniques for local level planning under ministry of science and technology. NRDMS works with the vision of enabling people, communities and institutions of Local Self-Governance with requisite databases and Science & Technology tools for informed participation in local level governance. I also extend my heartfelt thanks to our honorable Vice Chancellor for supporting us in all ways to make this project a successful one. My sincere thanks to Registrar In charge madam and all other administrative staffs in Bharathiar University who have put their efforts in conquering this project.

Organizing camps in coordination with NGOs working for tribal population gave insight about the juvenile deaths, physical and mental imperfection among tribal women. It has also been noted that among the tribal’s there is high incidence of communicable diseases, like: Sickle cell disease, Tuberculosis, Hepatitis, Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), neurological disorders, Malaria, Filariasis, Diarrhoea and Dysentery, Jaundice, Parasitic infestation, Viral and Fungal infections, Cough and Cold, HIV/AIDS, etc due to lack of sanitation and unhygienic living. Therefore awareness regarding the above diseases was delivered through the camps and individual counselling.

Therefore I thank Dr.V.Balachander, Principal Investigator and Assistant Professor, Department of Molecular Biology and Human Genetics for his continuous support to progress with this project.
