Delhi/Hyderabad, Jan 26 (Hydnow): Telangana’s tableau in the Republic Day parade on Friday honored the legacy of tribal freedom fighters who emerged as guiding lights during India’s struggle for independence.
The tableau celebrated the heroic efforts of leaders like Komaram Bheem, Ramji Gond and Chityalallamma (Chakalillamma), whose indomitable spirits have become integral to the folklore of the region.
Komaram Bheem and Ramji Goud stood tall, advocating for the freedom, dignity and rights of indigenous tribal communities. They employed guerrilla warfare tactics to garner board support and spread a powerful message of empowerment and justice encapsulated in the rallying cry “Jal, Jangal, Zameen (water, forest, land)”
Chityalallamma or Chakilallamma, stood as a witness to the exploitation faced by tillers and farmers under the yoke of feudal landlords. Her unyielding resolve galvanised these communities to confront and challenge their oppressors.
These visionary figures continue to serve as beacons of inspiration, embodying democratic values of justice and equality while advocating for the rights of marginalised communities.
In modern times, the establishment of gram sabhas and panchayats stands testament to the enduring impact of these freedom fighters. These grassroots institutions empower local tribal populations, ensuring that their rightful claims to “Jal, Jangal and Zameen” are recognized and protected. (Hydnow)
