Child artist Vinod talks about his painting of Birsa Munda
Listen to Vinod Tumbada (class 8) talk about his medal winning painting of Birsa Munda, the fiery tribal freedom fighter and folk hero. This painting won a bronze medal in painting competition for children by Khula Aasmaan for October to December 2018. Vinod Ramji Tumbada (class 8) is a student of Dhamangaon ashramshala, Dist. Palghar, Maharashtra (विनोद रामजी तुंबडा, इयत्ता आठवी, धामणगाव आश्रमशाळा, जि. पालघर).
Birsa Munda (15 November 1875 – 9 June 1900) was an Indian tribal freedom fighter, religious leader, and folk hero who belonged to the Munda tribe. He spearheaded an Indian tribal religious Millenarian movement that arose in the tribal belt of modern-day Bihar and Jharkhand in the late 19th century, during the British Raj, thereby making him an important figure in the history of the Indian independence movement. His achievements are even more remarkable for having been accomplished before the age of 25. A portrait of Birsa Munda, the tribal hero, hangs in the Indian Parliament Museum.
