The red carpet has been rolled out, a large LED screen has been installed, and a podium has been put in place along with a sound system.

Apart from this, cut-out posters of JMM chief Shibu Soren and Chief Minister Hemant Soren have also been put up.

All this is part of the preparation for the Adivasi Mahotsav 2023. Right now workers were seen cleaning up the Birsa Bhagwan Birsa Munda Memorial Park-cum-Museum in Ranchi’s Jail Chowk.

Tomorrow on August 9, on the occasion of International Day of the World’s Indigenous People, the entire city area is being bed caked with posters of Sorens and tribal culture and tradition.

As per the schedule, the melodic echoes of 32 tribal musical instruments are planned to fill the air during the upcoming Jharkhand Tribal Festival, as the “Reej Rang Rasika” rally takes center stage.

Scheduled for the two-day state government-sponsored show, this cultural extravaganza aims to celebrate tribal heritage and unity through lectures, music, dance, and traditional customs.

The rally, which will be the main attraction of the festival, is set to begin at 12 noon on August 9, departing from Dhumkudiya Bhawan, Karamtoli Chowk, and heading towards Birsa Munda Smriti Udyan on Jail Road.

The “Reejh Rang Rasika” rally, featuring 32 tribal musical instruments, will be the highlight of the Jharkhand Tribal Festival 2023, fostering unity through music and dance.

Tribes including Asur, Banga, Banjara, Bathudi, Bediya, Binjhiya, Birhor, Birjia, Chero, Chik-Badaik, Gond, Godail, Ho, Karmali, Khadiya, Kanwar, Kharwar, Khond, Kisan, Kora, Korva, Lohra, Mahali, Mal Paharia, Munda, Oraon, Parhaiya, Santhal, Sauria Paharia, Savar, Bhumij, and Kol will showcase their unique musical instruments.

Dancing to the beat of the Mandar, attendees will immerse themselves in the vibrant rhythm of Jharkhand’s tribal culture, symbolizing the unity of the state’s diverse communities.

The state government offices will remain closed on August 9. Already, preparations for the festival are underway, with guests coming to Ranchi from tribal communities in Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, and Rajasthan expected to share their traditions and culture.

Cultural programs, including Nagpuri, Seraikela Chhau, Domkach, Paika, and other dances, will be performed by artists, adding to the rich tapestry of the event.

The only odd point is the weather. Clouds hover around in the sky and light to middle type rains are predicted by Meteorological Department. “ If it rains, the high voltage show and programme may get affected”, says a senior officer who is busy organizing the programme.
