The event titled “Jaiba Kala Vividhata” focused on expression of biodiversity through art.

Around 50 children and youth from the Mankidia and Juanga tribes of the region had participated in the workshop and were imparted hands-on training by Jamshedpur based organisation Shilpi Niketan led by eminent artist Mrs Rinku Pramanik and Babban Moharana.

The programme which has been organised by the company for long, encompassed a series of educational sessions, interactive exhibitions, and community engagement activities aimed at highlighting the rich biodiversity of the region and the need for its sustainable management. Shambhu Nath Jha, Chief of Mines, Devraj Tiwari, Head Mining (Sukinda Chromite Mine), Nihar Mitra, Senior Area Manager (Mining Operation) and Anjna Tiwari, Senior Area Manager (Security) along with other senior officials of the company were present on the occasion.
