Jarawa The Tribes
Sunday. 4.19.09 6:36 pm
I drove back with four pages of wikipedia yesterday.

It was my English lesson again and we talked about Jarawa this time. Let's go through it, 'Who the Jarawa are?'

'The Jarawa are a tribe of 200-300 people, and they live on the Indian Ocean. They look very different from their Indian neighbours. Most probably, their closest relatives are African. No one outside the tribe really speaks their language, and so no much is known about them.' - According to a book.

But we do know how the Jarawa live. They are nomadic people, moving from place to place to find food. They hunt small animals and fish, they find berries, honey, and they are self-sufficient - they do everything themselves.

As far as I know, there are some other tribes who are still living on this earth. Basically, there are actually the same as us, they are a human. But why are they living in a defferent life from us?

Here came an interesting question - Why are the Jarawa never have glasses? And my humorous friends in the class said: 'Because they never have a TV set and they never read book. They live in the jungle all the time and so the green plants could help. They aren't shortsighted but they has bright eyes.'

Such answer may put in a sense of humour but she'd got her point. The people wanted to bring a normal live to them as we live in today. The people tried to put a TV set in their house. Um... sorry, they don't have a house. So TV sets were given to tribes. But since then, speacial TV programmes haven't devoloped for the people in the tribes. They never saw a television before in their entire life. When it came to their real life, it seemed that they couldn't adapt to the new life that the people had given to them.

For example, they saw a tiger was running in the TV, they felt afraid and ran away. From over a group of 50 sitting in front of the TV set to an empty place with nobody. Because they thought the tiger was running out and jumping to catch them. I know this was amusing but this was the real them. The people tried to send books, stationery and school uniforms, too, to give them study. However, they couldn't reach it. You know what, their father lived there; their grandfather lived there; their forefather lived there from the last decade as well. So how could it just change in a few months?

In somewhere, I can't remember where, there are 6 tribes - tribes who are living in the boat, tribes who are living up the tree, tribes who are living in the cave, and others I can't remember. I have a bad memory, I admit. So our teacher told us, those who are living in the boat will only like to stay in the boat, and they are undressed. They don't like to dress. They like to be naked.

If they want to go out to the grocery, they will only pick up their shirt on put it on as well as their pants. They bring some fruits in the boat and go in the shop and take their food in the shop and go out. When they reach their boat, they put off the shirt and pants, to be naked again. I don't know how do they do that, I mean to buy things in the grocery. Perhaps they exchange their fruits with the grocer's food?

One question, how could you feel if you were told to live in a different place like the tribes? I know you'd certainly say, 'No way! I'd certainly try many ways to commit suicide because tribes' life is an underworld.'

Indeed, who'd like to live in an underworld like where the tribes live in? No one would Yes to me. Seriously, the tribes don't dress, perhaps just cover with some leaves in front and behind of them, they have long, dark, smelly, curly hair, they have yellowish, sharp teeth, they have very long and dirty nails, they eat food that contains millions of bacteria, they drink polluted river's water, they fight for food, they have to suffer hunger sometimes, they have secret diseases, they have worms in their stomach, they don't bath, they may sleep on wet ground after raining and jungle trees as their blanket, they don't read book, they speak their own language which we can't understand it, they defecate every where, they don't use toilet roll, perhaps they don't clean. They're afraid of people as well.

OR vice versa?

In a word, they're a real pity because they live in such a suffer life. The people had tried to move them out but it's hard and it's not that easy to do it since their forefather had lived in such an unbelievable situation for over a hundred years. Why don't you stop sighing and start thinking about you're much better than them and let your life goes whatever it is.



A very interesting entry.

I have heard that the same is true of the Inuit peoples of the far North. None of the parents are short-sighted, but the children are short-sighted because now they read books all the time and strain their eyes.

"Why don't you stop sighing and start thinking about you're much better than them and let your life goes whatever it is."

a direct comparison like this is retarded.
it's like comparing the size of baby watermelon and a gigantic apple then conclude that apples are bigger than watermelons.

luxury in developed countries comes with the "burden" of knowledge and career stress.
poverty in third world countries and tribes comes with the "luxury" of ignorance.

i hope you get what i mean.

relating to what you said above, years ago, i read this book titled "the science of good and evil".
it illustrated a short story of a woman that lived in a tribe where public raping is an orthodox and there's basically nothing the girls in the village can do as it's just a unchallengeable tradition. they still feel humiliated when raped though.

one fine day, a doctor came by the tribe one day and rescued one of the girls from the village, introducing her to the city shortly after.
after years of living in the city, when the girl was finally given the choice of returning to her tribe, she opted for it without hesitation.
she choose public humiliation and poverty over the stress in developed countries.

so who knows? are we REALLY better off than those residing in third world countries when it comes to happiness?

i seriously doubt so.

i don't know or dare to judge.
