Information in 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica[edit]

There is a lot of historical and old ethnographic information in the Encyclopaedia Britannica entry Bhil. A lot of it has a bad British Empire POV. I didn't want to include any of it because I don't know how much of the history is correct and how much of the culture is relevant. Someone else may be more able to determine what's worth keeping.

The Tomb of His Ancestors[edit]

I think that "The Tomb of His Ancestors", a tale by Kipling, would be an useful addition to this article.
