In the remote village of Nagapuraheadi, tribal life still continues to flounder. Surrounded by dense forests of Nagarhole, the dominance of Jenu Kuruba tribe has embraced to depict a dispossessed reality with the indigenous people being deprived and treated appallingly.
"It has almost been 15 years since we have been forced to leave the forests", says Puneet, a displaced tribal who now works as a porter and cultivator.
Improper conditions to sustain survival:
Sustaining livelihood with five acres of land that had been allotted by the government to each tribal household while moving them out of the forest, the government failed to initiate policies that would make them self sufficient unlike their present state of dependency where they have to hibernate to different places in order to make a living.
