The NCSTD has opened its Assam Chapter under the presidentship of Mr
Samuel Lakra, Principal of one Inter College. Bodo, Mikir, and other
tribes are also member in the state committee.
In my opinion, there is hardly any internal rift between the tribes to
accept Adivasis in the register made for Assam Tribes. It requires
social mobilisation with a religious approach.
The NCSTD is taking pain for the issues related to the Adivasis.

Re: Adivasi festival Adirang from today
Dear All, These kind of festivals are being organised as a matter of routine. I have seen in orissa many times but has not been effective in furthering the interest of the Adivasis.Let it be done but the live exibition of Adivasis should not be done. Dayanidhi Marandi.
The message is relevant but the problem is that the forest areas too
are shrinking. WIth plantation style of cultivations in diffferent
forests of India by the British and then our own govt, the adivasi's
dependence on forests for everything is finished as the loss of
biodiversity has forced him to slash and burn forest to cultivate
land .Coupled with this is growing population, increased pressure on
land and land deradation, such marginalised peple are just accursed
to go hungry. It is sad but there are no options except such extreme
Our leaders should work committedly towards making them self
dependent by easy credit schemes, self help groups etc. THe story of
the couple who had bought two calves to survive would not have had
this twist if they had not cleared the land too.
ANd this statement " I did not cut a single tree " may be true for
one or two but not for all.
