Research Project on ‘Dukpa’s Tribal Life’

At Buxa hills live Dukpa Tribal people. Dukpa is from the word ‘Drugpa’. Drug means Drugon and Pa means resident. They are Buddhist. They entertain their guests with salt tea and Chhang. Their agricultural products are- orange, maize, ginger, squash etc. They believe in transition of life. Their main festivals are Nimlo, Losa, Jaimand Thiugap. There is song, dance and archery in every festival. In their language dance is ‘Sekta’. No musical instrument. Males and females dance with the rhythm of songs. There is goat , pig and fowl in every house.They have more links with Bhutan than India. The community, limited to the four high-altitude villages of Sadarbazar (2,000 ft), Lal Bungalow (2,800 ft), Lepchakha (2,300 ft) and Chunabhatti (2,500 ft), is so remote and inaccessible that they are deprived of almost all kinds of basic necessities like education, sanitation, health assistance and pure drinking water. Though their social structure is rather simple, they have elaborate death rituals. There are many ethnographists who do not have a clear idea about the Dukpas of Buxa and there are very few books on them. All aspects of the community’s life, like marriage, funeral, spiritual activities, their food habits and their dress will be chronicled in the documentar. Dukpas have lived a very isolated existence. They suffer from severe malnutrition. Without health facilities, skin diseases and tuberculosis are widespread. The mortality rate among infants and children is also high. This is primarily because they do not understand the necessity of personal hygiene. Buxa, with its flora and fauna and immense natural beauty, is fast turning out to be a popular tourist destination. Speaking of ways in which the community could benefit from tourism. Dukpas could find employment as guides and porters for the tourists who visited the region. “Buxa is a beautiful place. But, to attract tourists, we need good roads. The forest department should develop the area because the land, inhabited by the community, is within the Buxa Tiger Reserve over which the forest department has jurisdiction. If that does not happen, the community will have to continue its struggle to survive.
