Everyone should remember this day. For the first time, ‘Gram Diwas’ started with Charilam in Tripura, Checharimai Gram Panchayat held first ‘Gram Diwas’ today, to take blessings from guardians for doing good work. The meaning of ‘Gram Diwas’ is that our loyalty to the village is an illusion of the soil of the village.
