Lepchas

The Lepchas of Dzongu Region in Sikkim

The author of both books, Anita Sharma, study of these two societies in the course of her association with INTACH. She has attempted to analyse the traditional societies of the Sherthukpens and the Lepchas and the likely loss of indigenous knowledge and socio-cultural patterns in both societies as a result of the impact with modernity. While Sherthukpen society as a whole has been the subject of study in the first book, in the case of the Lepchas an attempt has been made to give a greater voice to the Lepcha individual and step back somewhat from the anthropological trend of studying societies at the cost of individuals.
