Jamshedpur, Aug 9: World Adivasi Day was celebrated with traditional spirit and gusto in Potka Block’s Pariawaran Chetna Kendra today. The Adivasi community resolved to live by and protect their motto of Water, Jungle and Land (Jal, Jungle, Zameen). “The step motherly attitude still being shown to us will have to stop.
