Abstract: Kashmir is unique not only geographically but also in its history, culture and ethnicity. It is one of the most beautiful and fertile valleys in the world. Pendit Jawaharlal Lai Nehru has said about the Vale of Kashmir, Like some supremely beautiful woman whose beauty is almost newlineimpersonal and above human desire, such is Kashmir in all its feminine beauty of rivers, valleys, lakes and graceful trees and then another aspect of this magic beauty comes into view, a masculine one of hard mountains and cruel and fierce torents rushing down to the valley below. Kashmir is encircled by the high mountainous ranges of Karakorum and the newlineHimalayas which have hardly any inter-rupting or intersecting ridges any newlinewhere and has been capable of maintaining a homogeneous people in one vast stretch of land in the valley and in the side valleys.Though the surrounding hilly regions are inhabited by people of different ethnic groups.Gujjar and Bakarwal which comprise a special community and third largest ethnic group have since long time opted to live on these envious peaks. newlineEducation for the Gujjar and Bakarwals should have a different orientation from the formal education that we have for the general category o f children. It has to be timed in accordance with the prevailing newlinesocial practices of the Gujjar and Bakarwal people among whom the sense o f community life is more deeply ingrained than in the so-called civilized people where the system o f youth dormitories existed in the original form. Members, through informal activities and associations were taught about their own roles in the community, its cultural practices, its deities and religious ideas, its mythology, its system of values, and many other matters there. Therefore, it has been rightly pointed out that a man s newlineculture is what he has, the totality o f his life and interests. newlineThus in the above backdrop, the proposed study is considered to be newlinenecessary as it delineates with all aspects of access to education for newlineGujjars and Bakarwals of Kashmir
