Abstract: "This paper presents a conflict between two communities of Viyal village. The downtrodden tribal community of this village challenges the power wielding Rajputs on the issue of controlling the village grassland. The case highlights the importance of concerted action in removing encroachments by powerful sections of society on common lands. An important aspect of this case is the fact that the villagers steadfastly refused all forms of external intervention and took effective non-violent steps of their own to resolve the conflict."
