Editorial : Reworking the frame


The Jharkhand government has recently ordered that Birsa Munda should not hereafter be represented in chains.

Needless obsession

  • Birsa Munda iconic image has been that of a youth in chains, raging against all forms of exploitation and urging his people to stand up and fight.
  • It is a reminder to the governing classes that the state needs to do much more for Birsa’s people, who are among the country’s poorest and oppressed.
  • History, and its rewriting, should be least of government’s preoccupations at this juncture.

Unmet expectations

  • The divide between the non-Adivasi and Adivasi populations has widened.
  • Unregulated expansion of sectors like mining has led to land alienation and deep disquiet among Adivasis.
  • The government’s attempts to develop the state’s immense mineral resources, instead of ushering in a modern economy and society, have only hardened old exploitative networks.

Ideal emancipation

  • For Birsa to be genuinely relevant, he needs to be discussed in today’s social and economic context.
  • His ideal of emancipation extended beyond merely overthrowing colonial rule.
  • It encompassed the social, economic and spiritual regeneration of Adivasi society and not how his statues and pictures are crafted.
