The pain of Adivasis and Dalits in the villages – A song by Maniram bhai

I sing about the life in the village
Listen o people. Why do we suffer needlessly O people!
Listen Raghu, Madhu, Jadu – women and men who work as daily labourers
We work hard day and night and yet we continue to suffer
Listen Adivasis, Dalits and landless people who have to migrate
Don’t you hear the cry of your children
Listen O mothers & fathers, sisters & brothers, uncles & aunts and grandparents
For how long should we remain landless?
We fight among ourselves and go to the police instead of settling in the village
Is this the rule of law?
*It is our land, and our forests, but we are called landless!*
We demand the patta to our land.
I sing about the life in the village
Listen o people!
