The recent remarkable economic growth on the Indian subcontinent has moulded a new, powerful, globally active, and even assertive India. At the same time India’s indigenous peoples (Adivasis), have benefited the least from the country’s rise, whereas their territories and basic human rights have not been openly questioned. Starting from the tragic events of Jharkhand in 2006 and the subsequent judgment of the Supreme Court in 2011, this article proposes a twofold analysis on the concept of the End of Times: as a real risk of the apocalypse of indigenous cultures, and as an ethnographical approach to eschatological rituals and vernacular beliefs.
