Son Singh Dhurve from Kawardha in Chhattisgarh is telling us about Baiga adivasis who are living on a particular forest land from 1960. Many Baigas have gone to jail and are attending court from more than 10 years in their fight to keep that land. They have applied under Forest Rights Act but nothing has happened.
