Ramdayal, now a sixty year old Saharia Adivasi, got involved in the mills of justice in 1990, in a struggle that was to be continued for the following 20 years.
It’s a story of empty promises, corruption and police brutality. It took place in Ghoda village in Madhya Pradesh, where some Bhilala and Bhil Tribals are living.
Opening a National Park is a nice thing, nobody could doubt this. But if the build-up of a National Park is accompanied by compulsory displacement of the tribals living in that area, it becomes a much less ‘nice’ thing.
