Seminar held on State of Tribals in India


DEHRADUN, 28 Jan: ITITI School, India’s unique school for tribal children, organised a Seminar on the Tribals of India at Hotel Madhuban, here, on Sunday.
All India Organising Secretary Atul Jogi, who was the Chief Speaker, highlighted the challenges before Tribal Society. He said that NGOs and general public should come forward to help in their social uplift, while Government of India should formulate a better policy for them.
Swami Asimatmananda, Secretary of the Sri Ramakrishna Mission, recalled that Swami Vivekanand said there should not be any discrimination on the basis of caste, creed or colour, in his famous lecture in America during the close of the 18th Century. He blessed all on the occasion.
Former MP Tarun Vijay said that, if India’s borders were to be protected, Tribals needed to flourish. Dr Jai Raj, Chief Forest Conservator, in his address, also advised the young generation to follow the path shown by Swami Vivekanand. Dr Ranvir Singh emphasised that Swami Vivekanand placed emphasis on character building.
Dr S Farooq said Swami Vivekanand was a great saint, who spread the message of brotherhood by addressing the gathering as Brothers and Sisters of America at the World Conference on Religion. He was an apostle of peace and harmony and an Ambassador of India. IG G Martolia, presided over the function. Other speakers were Rakesh Maindola and Manojit Sinha.
