Item Description: Motilal Banarsidass,Delhi, 1994. Himalayan Buddhist Villages: Environment, Resources, Society and Religious Life in Zangskar, Ladakh. With 113 photographs,frontis and figures in the text, endpaper maps.- Hardcover, with DJ. In clean good condition (minor inside break front cover, no damage). xxx, 866 (text) S. isbn 8120812012 -- Subsistence agriculture in Zangskar, Ladakh, is of a traditional kind, based on barley, wheat and peas, combined with pastoralism herding cattle, sheep and goats. The people of Zangskar have to cope with the rigours of its environment and climate without the benefits of modern agriculture and pastoral knowledge and technology. For the agricultural system, the principal constraints, besides the availability of good soil, appear to be the limited water supply and seasonally severe cold, resulting in a short growing season. This chapter discusses the expenditure of energy in physical activity, in particular in subsistence activities such as agricultural work, where energy is expended in the production of further nutritional energy sources. The villages chosen for the study were sTongde and Sha-de. A generally similar pattern of work emerges, although the growing season does seem to be more compressed at least at its latter end. A number of interesting comparative questions arise, including ones concerning how Sha-de villagers manage to start their agriculture so early, how they manage to bring their crop to fruition under conditions that are harsher than the still demanding ones at sTongde and how they manage to subsist on what they grow. In both villages children often work herding sheep and goats on the cow pastures from about age 8 to 12. Old people work right through life, although they are helped by relatives as necessary.
