We are children from Balamitra School in Dabbanda village in Vishaka district of Andhra Pradesh. We are singing a song about our Adivasi community.We Adivasi people live in the nature. We are the singing birds of the nature. We are the buds and aromatic flowers of orchards. We are the spicy smell in the nature. In cages and huts we are living like Tigers. In plants leafs and grass we are the dropplates of water. In fields we are like seeds of germinating plants. We will be together like bees and we share love with each other.
