Re: I have yet to meet a tribal who has been critical of the material inputs that Christians bring into their lives.
Mr. Senthil must keep in mind the hard realities that even exists to day at remote tribal areas.
Mr. Cynthia Stephen has rightly pointed his fingers at the pathetic situation at mining areas where except virtual looting of the natural resources, there is no other interest by the state government nor the mining contractors or mining mafias who have only one point agenda to make money and that too as quickly as they can.
When one goes to the remote tribal areas with such mischievous motives, it is not seen or noticed by many but the good work done in the name of humanity, be it in the field of education and health care, it attracts the attention of the so called champions of Hinduism.
Even the mischievous moties stands exposed in the efforts to wipe out the identity of Adivasis by calling them VANVASHI. All those who live in Forest are Vanvashis but all of them are not adivasis. The mischief is played to facilitate the Banias who also stays at the forests and exploit tribals as they are not adivasis but true, they are Vanvashis. Who is behind the fundamentalists? The back bone is these Banias who have exploited tribals all these years but likes of Mr. Senthil and others are not speaking a word about it. When a situation is brought to focus, why such key issues are ignored or not addressed, simply because they are not Christians.
Either the matter be discussed in Toto and openly and bluntly or not discussed at all. We are in the process of opening PANDORA'S BOX where I am affraid, moderator's job will become difficult.
