Deliberately driven away by their own countrymen and historians, the schedule-tribes continue to face a humiliating social exclusion till now. In census of 1931, they were named as Aadivasi but no steps were taken to given due space in social history and consciousness to their sacrifices. It is injustice to ignore such people, who fought for independence and never accepted defeat. For their deeds in the past, they should be honored as freedom fighters of medieval age. Infact, forest was not their original home but they took shelter in forest because of different reasons, i.e. defeat of kings, fear of Islamization etc. Government never tried to establish them. To protect their families from the outrages of these foreigners, they shifted their families to safe places like forests. Now entire community want a recognition of their glorious past to get a accessible identity in society.
