Bollywood may not have shown you the Jarawas, but they are an indigenous tribe in India and they are estimated to be between 250 and 400 people today.
According to Wikipedia, the people of this tribe live on South Andaman and Middle Andaman Islands.
Legit.ng gathers that the Jarawas were able to keep their tradition, culture and customs because their contact with outsiders was disregarded before the 1990s.

In the 1990s, contacts increased between this tribe and outsiders and in the 2000s, the Jarawas became frequent visitors at settlements.
They were interacting with tourists, getting medical aid and even sending their children to school.
The Jarawas have inhabited the islands for several thousand years.
