About the DVD
Tana Bhagat (1888-1918) was the leader of the tribal community of Chittanagpur in the modern Jharkand state. A social reformer, he fought against the superstitious and drunkenness prevalent among tribals and preached non-violence long before Gandhiji gave non violence its pan-Indian and global dimension. The mantra of “Tana Panths” hinged upon the philosophy “O God, call us towards you”. Simple living, a white flag, sattvik food, love for the teeming world of nature and forest charaterised tana panthis who rose in revolt against oppressive British taxes and persecution.
