In the following Tables I and II the mean values of the stature the sitting height and the sitting height-stature indices and the different types of `formic' indices 2 of the various tribes of Travancore and also a detailed comparison of the indices with other tribes and races of India and abroad have been tabulated. [...] This fact on the other hand is wholly untenable when we minutely examine the mean values of the stature the sitting height and the sitting height-stature indices of the Negroes and the Negritoes when compared with that of the South Indian groups of people measured by the present authors Schmidt and Newton. [...] the Kannikars the Uralis the Malpantarams the Kuravans the Paliyans and the Muthuvans are compared with the Andamanese the Kongo Neger the Australians and the Chinese. [...] The old Rajgir is situated in the valley surrounded by a group of five hills the Bipulagiri the Baivergiri the Ratnagiri the Udayagiri and the Sonagiri. [...] The two small streams the Saraswati and the Banganga flow through the valley close to the foot of the hills.
