The ethnographic traits that stand out in the state are heterogeneity in terms of social divisions, consanguineous forms of marriages, particularly FSD, MBD and uncle-niece marriages, junior sororate, relatively equal status of women in some groups. matrilineal descent among a few communities, bride price in cash, child labour, extended family, non-vegetarianism, and a larger sharing and participation of its communities in one another’s festivals and festivities, and in maintaining traditional linkages and fostering modern linkages etc. A resource-rich and progressive state, Karnataka has been a pioneer in Panchayat Raj, watershed development, conservation of the environment, social justice and empowerment of women. Karnataka has been recognised as a middle income state which ranks seventh in terms of per capita income. It has a high level of literacy, a fair birth rate and declining infant mortality. However, it has a little above 37 per cent of its people living below the poverty line. Its economic progress in some areas goes with its rich culture, which has witnessed an efflorescence of literature and the recreation and readaptation of folk culture and oral traditions."--Book jacket.
