Worship soil

Soil worship has great importance in the tribal community. On the day of Akhatij, the tribal community practiced soil worship. People used to worship Mother Earth through ploughing, dhori and dhani, lamps, and coconut with Kumkum, which were supposed to aid Mother Earth. There was a lot of attachment to it, but today the importance of soil worship has been reduced. This is heavily due to farming practices relying on machinery like tractors. New generations are oblivious to the importance of worshipping Mother Earth which is producing all the food and is protecting all human beings. It is the responsibility of the community to maintain the importance of Mother Earth worship. To create awareness of this, meetings should be held promoting the worship and the importance of Mother Earth.
