TIRUPATI: It was a homecoming for the tribals when the novel attempt brought back their roots to their mind.

The two-day awareness camp conducted in Srikalahasti mandal on `Promotion and dissemination of tribal folk art and culture' by an NGO, Society for Action, Rural Awareness and Development (SARAD) was, in fact, aimed at letting the tribals pick up a thread on their forgotten heritage.

Overwhelmed on finding the cultural troupes perform their own art forms, the native tribals of Melachur, Kalempalli, Yellampalli, Thuffan centre, Pallam and Vempalli also joined them by singing folk songs along with them. SARAD president B. Sujatha also spoke.
