Under colonial rule (occupation by immigrants from a different territory) in a place of indigenous people leading a pastoral life, the life of Pastoralist changes dramatically.

The grazing grounds of Pastoralist shrank because of the domination of colonial people to lead a metropolis living, the movements of pastorals gets regulated and the taxes they had to pay because of metropolis ruling increases considerably and imposition of new Legislations.

The livestock and agricultural stock also declines and the trades and crafts are adversely affected as the life style gets modified.

The pastoral class become a neglected class causing severe damage to economy creating disparities among the classes and cultural shocks leading to classes


thumbs up plsss
