Abstract: In the independent India, several approaches and programs have been undertaken by National and State government to transform the scenario of tribal development. There has been lot of changes and paradigm shifts in the tribal development approaches. The development has moved away from earlier welfare approaches to more professional and diagnostic planning and interventions. The current trend of development approaches has been emphasizing on SMART models of development using empowerment and entitlement as the key to holistic development. The weaker areas in tribal development that contributed to low HDI in tribal districts of Odisha has been the frontiers of the current development models. Over the last two and half decades Odisha has initiated several model interventions for development in tribal education with OMTES, Anwesha, Urban Hostels, etc; expanding the basket of livelihoods options through integral and holistic development interventions like Odisha Tribal Empowerment and Livelihoods Program (OTELP), Odisha PVTG Empowerment and Livelihoods Program (OPELIP), FADP, etc. Skill Development Programs like Placement Linked Employment Training (PLET); addressing malnutrition and health through convergence programs; proactive implementation of Forest Rights Act (FRA); addressing land issues, rehabilitation and resettlement of the tribals; and such. The enabling environment at the Government of India towards ensuring entitlements of tribals on one hand, and the novel approaches of Government of Odisha through many novel exemplary approaches on the other hand have put the tribal development in faster transforming mode. There have been successes and failures; some success stories standing as examples with potential for replication, some failure stories stand to say where did the strategy go wrong. In a futuristic perspective both the success and failure stories are important in order to envisage policies and programs more diagnostically based on real-time situation. Success stories, special among all sorts of documents, are developed when the project start reaping results because they 'describe a positive change and show how that change has benefited people'. A success story can document program improvement over time and demonstrate the value of program activities. When presented effectively, success stories can be a useful tool for educating stakeholders about the outcomes of development work and the results the primary stakeholders are achieving. Periodical documentation of success stories is therefore very relevant in the context of assessing the impacts of development programs and to identify leads for future planning based on emerging needs and paradigms. A success story documentation on story-line platform with videography would provide a comprehensive picture of the development.
