Society must recognize tribal people: Activist

Jaideep Deogharia-RANCHI: Akhra (the term used to describe a socio-cultural gathering of people in tribal languages) should be brought to the social ground instead of confining it to sophisticated auditoriums.

This statement was made by noted tribal activist and former commissioner of national Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes, government of India, B D Sharma at the inaugural ceremony of the three-day Akhra-tribal India International Festival organized by The Central University of Jharkhand (CUJ) here recently.

He also said that the tribal people are not showpieces and that they have a rich culture, tradition and knowledge which need to be acknowledged by the so-called developed society.
