Nandurbar District - January 2005

A predominantly tribal pocket, which has been socially and politically alert, Nandurbar district has become internationally known for the first project of manufacturing particle boards from sugarcane baggasse in the world. Nandurbar is identified with Shirish Kumar, who scarified his life at a tender age during the freedom struggle. His Memorial is like a place of pilgrimage for many. Important crops of this district are chillies, cotton, sugarcane and tur. Almost 62 per cent population of this district is tribal. Adivasi Pawara dance and Songadya Party are its distinguished socio--cultural features. Toranmal hill station attracts tourists round the year.
