A lot has been said about the need to save trees in the Aarey forest and protect the green cover of the concrete jungle that Mumbai has become. However, very few people are familiar with the fact that the Aarey forest is also home to Warli Adivasis, who have inhabited the area for decades. Multiple development projects have led to the slow and steady displacement of Adivasis from their land. CJP recently visited the Aarey forest as part of its continued pursuit to secure the human rights of Adivasis across India by campaigning for their right to forest land, and for a dignified life for them. This is a visual journey of a day in the lives of the Aarey Adivasis.
