Tribal hero’s sacrifice not mentioned in Indian history says Dr. Shyam Koreti.


Gadchiroli Sept. 28 (District Correspondent) ‘If we look at the history of the Indian writing system, there is hardly any mention of tribal heroes, so they should be included in the curriculum. If we look at the history of ancient India, from Vedas, Puranas to Mahabharata, there are many tribal heroes whose work should be known to the coming generation. We should remember their sacrifices in the freedom struggle also. They have protected water, forest and land’.

This was stated by Dr. Shyam Koreti, Pofessor of Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj

Nagpur University while speaking at the program ‘Swatantrya Sangraat Janjati Nayak’ that was organized by the Gondwana University in association with National Commission for Scheduled Tribes, Government of India, New Delhi.

The program was presided over by Gondwana University Pro VC Dr. Shriram Kawle. Former Senate and Management Council Member of RSTM Nagpur University Dinesh Sheram, National Commission for Scheduled Tribes Government of India’s Vivekananda Nartam were present as the chief guests.

At the outset, a poster exhibition based on the contribution of tribal heroes in the freedom struggle was inaugurated.

Dr. Sriram Kawle said that many revolutionaries sacrificed for the freedom but even after 75 years of the country’s independence, but we do not know their names.  There are many tribal revolutionaries in Gadchiroli too. We should know about the revolutionaries whose names are still not on the pages of history, he stated.

It was decided in a meeting of Vice Chancellors of all the universities in Delhi in which it was decided that such a program should be organized so that the students know about it, he told.

Prof. Vivekananda Nartam said, the contribution of tribal heroes in Indian freedom struggle is unique. The tribal community lives in the forests. Their culture is related to nature. We should inform the coming generation about this. The powers and functions of the National Commission for Scheduled Tribes were told through PPT.

At this time, he replied the answers to the questions asked by the students.

Mr. Dinesh Seram elaborated on the importance of the contribution of tribal heroes in the freedom struggle. A study centre will be opened at Ramtek for the employment of students and scientific training will be given to the students on how to get employment from local resources and this will be a role model in the future, he added.

During the program songs from the film depicting the tribal heroes Bhimu Kumare and Alluri Sitaram Raju were shown.

The program was conducted by Dr. Naresh Madavi. Dr. Rupali Alone proposed the vote of thanks. For the success of the program National Scheduled Tribes Commission Coordinator Dr. Naresh Madavi, Administrative Coordinator Dr. Vaibhav Masram, Academic Coordinator Dr. Prafulla Nande worked hard.
