The Kala Panchang for the year 2021-22 depicts the attachment of the Madhya Pradesh tribes to nature. The cover of the Panchang has a painting of Karma dance by Kalabai Shyam. Along with this, the Panchang is adorned with depictions of Bhuri Bai, Nanku Siya Shyam, Lado Bai, Durgabai, Narmada Prasad Tekam and Ram Singh.
