Abstract
Madagada, a village situated in Araku Valley of Visakhapatnam district in Andhra Pradesh, has been studied on socio-economy and politico-religious structure of the village. The health and nutritional status of the villagers was also assessed through certain anthropometric measurements and indices. The development programmes implemented in the village also studied to know the progress of the village. An attempt has been made to explore changes that took place in the society and culture of the village, based on earlier study conducted by the Tribal Cultural Research and Training Institute in 1968.
