Bharat Mahan

TWENTY-FOUR youngsters, including three women, most of them tribals from the backward and conflict-torn Gadchiroli, will board a bus to Mumbai next week to collect diplomas from Mumbai University’s School of Economics and Public Policy. Many of them never got around to completing their Class 12, but that didn’t stop them from signing up when the Tribal Development Department of the Maharashtra government and Mumbai University offered a 25-week intensive course designed especially for members of gram sabhas that were granted Community Forest Rights (CFR) under the Forest Rights Act.
