Gujarat to showcase Jharkhand martyrs

Statues of 9 tribal icons of Jharkhand, who played a key role in the nation’s freedom struggle, will be showcased for tourists at a Gujarat museum very soon. The Tribal Development Department (TDD) of Gujarat has asked the Jharkhand government to provide the biographies and photographs of martyrs, along with samples of traditional weapons used by the tribal communities that they belonged to. The department has also sought musical instruments of the respective tribes so that visitors to the museum could be given a proper lowdown on the art, culture and history of Jharkhand. The selfless struggle of the tribal icons for the cause of independence is not so well documented, and, this initiative would go a long way in doing the same.
