Change is inherent in the nature of culture. No culture is static and it is a permanent factor of human civilization, which goes on everywhere and at all times. The Bhils commonly known .as the desert dwellers or the bowmen are the largest tribal group in the Arravali belt of Rajasthan. It is believed that they are the oldest inhabitants of Indian continent. Hence these Arravalli dwellers came across the different agents of change. There was a time, when they assisted the Rajputs and revealed their gallantry against the Britishers. To evaluate the nature and its direction of change, the author tried to explore the Bhils in their present stage and also made an effort to compare them from pre-independence and post-independence Bhils. Hence the study endeavours to draw a chronology of change coming to oldest inhabitants from its ancient times to oflate with the main focus on post-independence period of the Bhils in India. The study gives an idea about the situation of a particular tribe in almost in all aspects and it also helps us to know as how these bowmen's social structure altered in the light of awareness, education and the contacts with the non-tribals which mobilized them from their conventional occupation agriculture to the most recent professions, in which not only the young Bhil boys but also the young girls are involved.
