We look forward to cross pollination of ideas and participation of tribal leaders not just from India but from five different countries as well.
Another company official, considered to be the architect of the entire enterprise, remarked that those who were sceptical earlier of the event were now lining up to be a part of it.
Those who expressed their doubts sitting on the sidelines are now wanting to be our partners seeing the success of the festival…
