Mysoreans get taste of tribal culture from Northern States

The local audience at the auditorium at Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) campus here on Wednesday, got a taste of tribal culture of the far away Bihar, Jharkand, Chhatisgarh and Odisha States.

As many as 270 tribal youth from 12 districts comprising the afore mentioned States were in the city as part of the 6th National Tribal Youth Exchange Programme. 

A troupe of artistes from Arwal district in Bihar rendered a song on the most celebrated ‘Holi’ festival. While another troupe from Jharkhand performed a dance.

Lokesh Kumar Kashyap from Arwal told Deccan Herald, that it was an opportunity for them to spread the culture and tradition of their State. Like Kashyap, 15 artistes from four districts each -  Arwal, Gaya, Aurangabad and Rohtaj from Bihar are a part of the exchange programme.

They were later taken sight seeing to Mysore Palace, Zoo, Chamundi Hill and Brindavan Gardens at KRS, as announced by Coordinator of Nehru Yuva Kendra, Mysore, M N Nataraj.

The participating troupes are a part of the week-long exchange programme organised in Bangalore from February 1 to 7.

Senior Deputy Director of Food and Civil Supplies K Rameshwarappa, who is also a folk singer advised the tribals to become part of the mainstream society.

When the Constitution of India advocates for an egalitarian society, the tribals who are bereft of education and many other facilities, should break out of their settlements.Registrar (Examinations) of KSOU S H Suresh regretted that Rajesh, a tribal youth who made his way into sandalwood from the woods, eventually met a tragic end.
