Gonds, a warrior caste and conquerors of yesteryears,
are spreadout all over the hill tracts of central
and south India. Before the Gonds sow a filed,
some grain, fowls and pigs are sacrificed to the
presding deity. Blood from the sacrificed animals
is sprinkled on the seeds which are distributed
among the villagers, who in turn sow them in their
fileds for luck.
