Every forest is a beautiful place on this earth. It is habitat for different animals and plants. To known more about forests, let us talk to the people of the forests.

Lifestyle of the tribal people
During my conservation with the girls, I said that most of the tribes belonging to Gonds and Chenchus live in forests. The old man who was sitting a little distance away from us heard our conservation and said that not only these people, but also many different tribes live in Araku area, among them the main tribe is `Bonds', a tribe which lives away from the outside world and are quite unaware of money.
Barjutayi and Chomcharu also were also suprised along with me. People living without money and knowledge about the outside world.
The Gonds of the tribal people participate in The Nagoba fair. The fair celebrate the people together with the happy.
`Oh! I remember one thing', said Chomcharu. She said that she heard about the Nagoba fair which is celebrated in a grand way by the Gond's.

`Yes', replied Barjatya. A Nagoba fair is very a important fair of the Jaundice. Nagoba temple is located at Keshopur village of Indravelli Mandal in Adilabad district. Five days fair is held every year and Gonds from other states also participate in this.
The important aspect of this fair is the Gonds traditional dance. Gonds decorated with peacock feathers perform the special dance called Gussadi. A large number of people other than Gonds come to watch the dance.
