“I am a tribal Man
Is it my fault that my ancestors settled in places so distant,
Who is responsible for the basic amenities I don’t get
I am a tribal man.
People say that I exploit reservations
Yes I have reservation in infant mortalities and other related deaths
I am reserved for staying without roads, hospital or any school, beyond these forests,
I am a tribal man, I am a tribal man.”
P.S.->These lines were written during my fieldwork in Kojawara Village of Udaipur, Rajasthan.
