Re: I am a proud Indian but I doubt that I would continue to feel like this if ....
People should realize that 'Why other people, who are not tribal are better off than tribals ?'.
The way people are thinking for the benefit of tribals by keeping them 'all time tribal' - their life is not going to change.
We are talking about 60 years of independence. I doubt, whether our tribals even know that whether they are part of Independent India or not. I think, they still believe that irrespective of regime change (British->Independent India), their home land is the only place they want to live. Even , I have noticed, when development comes to their door steps as some MNC project, our political 'tribal leaders' oppose development because they want status quo.
