Madurai: The need for nomadic entertainers to
get education for their development was stressed at a
conference of nomads on Sunday.

Inaugurating the conference at the Gandhi Museum, District
Collector C.Kamaraj said Nomads, who belonged to various
states and travelling widely entertaining the people, were
well versed in many languages, but they should get education
to put into use the mastery over the language, he said.

"You should provide them education rather than teaching
acrobatics and dance. That only will help your community to
develop and become developed community," he said.

He assured all the help from the district administration
for providing education to the children of nomads.

The collector organised a special grievance day for the
nomads including, "Kuravas" "Sattai Adipavar" "Kattunayakars"
and trained bull-owners community where he distributed House
site pattas,ration cards and health insurance scheme ID cards.
