Every living being must first meet their basic needs. Human beings are no different. Although modern knowledge has made great strides in this area, traditional knowledge is still important for meeting certain basic needs. In this chapter, we discuss four such areas. The first is about the possible role of traditional birth attendants in modern India. The second is a neglected but still very important indigenous irrigation technology. The third is about certain aspects of traditional housing-related knowledge that have drawn attention. The fourth is about the recent conflicts at Niyamgiri hills region over priorities in resource utilization. All the case studies in this chapter show how national development policy and institutional reforms are slowly changing to accommodate increasing awareness about valuable tradition knowledge.
