Why this question
Tribal art offers huge scope for acting as an economic resource and a tool for socio-economic transformation of the tribals in India. The idea has been floated long ago but commercialization of these art forms has not been realised to the fullest potential. The erstwhile planning commission has also prepared a report over this issue. The question is indirectly related to GS-1 syllabus; Salient aspects of Art Forms, Literature and Architecture from ancient to modern times.

Inclusive growth and issues arising from it.
