Life in the Adivasi region facing submergence : 2001

Tribal village Anjanwada on the banks of the Narmada

Bap Dedya from Anjanwada walking through a Bajri field.
Incidentally Dedya is an excellent story teller.

A Mahua tree in Domkhedi, one of the Satyagraha sites. The Mahua tree's flowers are used for food, its fruit for alcohol, seeds for oil and fodder for animals, wood for houses, boats, etc.
The Daud Committee met under this tree.

Because of the water stopped by the dam, the Narmada river now looks like a lake in this region.
