Teacher, companion, motivator: Adivasi-rights activist Dayamani Barla remembers Stan Swamy
The Caravan / Dayamani Barla
To understand the life struggle of Stan Swamy, it is necessary to understand the history and struggle of the Adivasi community in Jharkhand and the country. There is a need to understand the traditional rights that Adivasis have on natural resources such as water, forest, and land. It is only then that we can appreciate what Swamy stood for and fought for.
