Visiting The Jarawa Tribe

The shock at the surfacing of video recordings on local tribal Jarawa women and girls dancing in the nude for the benefit of tourists has had its effects on tourism in the Andaman. It was exploitation of the gullible people who have never interacted with civilization and who fall easy prey to those who have money to squander and who want to enjoy sights of these women and girls in the raw.

Two persons have been arrested in this connection by the police of Andaman and Nicobar islands – one of them is the owner of a gift shop, the other is a cab driver.

The local police have intensified checks on all vehicles that bring in tourists and have also clamped down on local video parlors and CD shops to unearth any offensive recordings that might still be in circulation.
