Sajan Re Jhooth Mat Bolo

Sajan Re
Jhooth Mat Bolo

Phanishwarnath Renu was evaluated from many points of view on the occasion of birth centenary. But no one considered Renu's literary and political journey from a Adivasi point of view. Whereas the region they represent in their stories, novels and reports is home to a large number of Adivasis. So, we organized a special live titled 'Sajan Re Jhooth Mat Bolo' from 14th to 27th June 2021 on the topic 'How regional are the stories of Renu' with special reference to the struggle of the Adivasis of Purnea.

ADIVASI CONTENT TRAVELERS

Internet is the most popular and widely accessible medium in terms of transactions, expansions and collections of information. Due to the device like mobile now it has already become more effective, and it has become a habit of every human's habit. But there is a lack of accurate and factual information, data, information and photos related to Indian Adivasis on the internet. Those who are, they present very wrong, misleading, factual and stereotype racial images of the Adivasis. Therefore, it is necessary to update the information related to the Adivasis on the internet and provide as much and correct and factual information as possible. The concept of Adivasi Content Travelers program has been envisaged keeping in mind this important need. The aim of this program is to provide maximum representation of the Adivasi information and the information available on the internet (like wikipedia, youtube and other social media) with the help of the community.
