The Pattern of Interpersonal Communication among Families of Oraon Tribe in Arangi Village of Jharkhand, India
Interpersonal communication can also be defined as the communication that takes place between people who are interdependent and have some knowledge of each other. Interpersonal communication refers to what takes place between a son and his father, between husband and wife, between mother and daughter in a family. Although largely dyadic in nature, interpersonal communication is often extended to include small intimate groups such as the peer group and extended family. Interpersonal communication can take place in face-to-face settings, as well as through media platforms, such as social media. Every family has a pattern of communication which is often channelized through various kin acting as a medium. In this study, the main focus will be concentrated on knowing about a general pattern of interpersonal communication among Oraon families of Arangi Village. The Oraon tribe is one of the major tribes of the Chotanagpur region. They have settled agriculturists which make them remarkable for complex family studies as they have a strong and extensive kinship system. They speak Kurukh which falls in the Dravidian linguistic family which itself is considered as one of the root linguistic families of India. Hence, as Oraons have already their own distinctive kinship and family pattern so this paper attempts to highlight the pattern of interpersonal communication among them using an integrative approach.
