Madan Singh Marawi, a Gondi speaking farmer from Jhiria village in Mandla district in Madhya Pradesh says in their area there is no irrigation facility so adivasi farmers are forced to migrate to big cities in search of work. There is a river in the area and if Govt makes a dam that will help all the adivasi farmers. He says for health problems adivasis here are only dependent on herbs which are also disappearing from the area. MadanJi is at 9479598133
