NGO Activities : Sampari Hukumu Bodol (SHB) with its motto, ‘Culture for Peace’ views ‘promotion of Culture’ as a strategy for empowering marginalized communities in order to achieve long-term peace and progress for all sections of people in the state of Tripura. Using art forms, both traditional and conventional, SHB has in the past carried out mass awareness campaign on consumer rights, human rights, land rights and environment. It has performed over 270 times, a series of three awareness-creating street plays throughout the state of Tripura. Three groups of youth have been trained in traditional music and dance. Another two groups of village youth have been trained in theatre. SHB continues to identify and train rural talents in the field of traditional music and dance. SHB has produced six audio CDs/Cassettes that feature quickly vanishing traditional music of the indigenous communities of Tripura. SHB has also used the medium of television and conventional theatre to create awareness among the rural people of the state on social issues. The NGO has also been fighting social evils and prevalent superstitious beliefs that are detrimental to the progress of the community. In this respect, the fight against the social evil of witch-hunting has been supplemented by a feature film (Mathia) made by Sampari Pictures, the sister concern of SHB. The education of the masses to land rights has also been supplemented by another feature film in Kokborok language called ‘Yarwng’ (Roots) that deals with the issue of development induced displacement of people. Both the above films have been widely screened and have also received awards both within the country and abroad. SHB also works for poverty alleviation by assisting deserving rural youth to set up income-generating enterprises and by arranging scholarships for deserving candidates. SHB is also in the process of setting up a mini gallery of indigenous culture. It focuses on the tribal communities of Tripura and is intended to grow into a resource facility for research and study. In collaboration with Sampari Pictures, SHB gives basic training to rural youth on using digital media to highlight social issues. Currently an audio studio for recording and a digital non-linear edit suit are nearing completion.
