What was Birsa’s vision of a golden age? Why do you think such a vision appealed to the people of the region?
Birsa Munda’s vision of a golden age was a satyug an age of truth in which the tribal people would live a good life, construct embankments, tap natural springs plant trees and orchards and practise cultivation to earn for their livelihood.
• He talked about an age in which tribals would live an honest life and would not kill their relatives and brothers.
• Birsa also wanted people to once again work on their land, settle down and cultivate their fields.
Such a vision appealed to the people of the region because they were very much eager to lead a free life. They had got fed up with the laws made on forests and restrictions made by Britishers.
