NEW DELHI: A recent government report has given startling facts about Andamans Onge tribe.

.

There is growing obesity and hypertension in this Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Group as the government provides them everything for free.

.

A recent report of National Commission for Scheduled Tribes reveals this indigenous Andamanese tribal group is turning obese as there is very little physical activity.

.

There are a total of 117 persons in Onge tribe in the entire Andamans, and settled in Dugong Creek. After a field trip to Andaman and Nicobar Islands in May-June, NCST secretary Anil Kumar Agarwal has submitted a report observing that the traditionally seminomadic hunter and gatherer tribe needs more physical activity. It was noticed that some of the tribal persons were having problem of obesity.

.

The ANM (auxiliary nurse midwife) informed that they were also having problem of hypertension. It emerged that since everything is being provided to them free, they are not engaged in any physical activity, the report said. NCST secretary advised the administration to take steps so that both children as well as elders undertake some physical activities. The NCST team was informed that there was a proposal to construct a playground for playing football.

.

This would be a welcome step. The elders should be involved in some economic activity so that they have some physical activity and livelihood support. The NCST secretary advised that the administration may take necessary steps in this regard, the report says.
