They did not speak

They could not

Speechless as they were

They name hunger as hunger

Or call beatings as beatings

That is why speechless as they were

Loaded in trucks like goods, sent

To places far flung

But now they have learnt to speak

Now hunger means food

Or beatings means rod

Now

They want the account

For their mountains, rivers and forests

That have disappeared in concrete buildings of the towns

(They Did not Speak by Ramnika Gupta)

This paper explores the need and role of this little magazine in the genesis and metamorphosis of the tribal reality and relativity.
