Traditional Environmentalism


Saving environment doesn’t necessarily require high education, political understanding and ecological degree of expertise. It can be conceptualized in several emotional ways. The world runs on emotions, greed, power, money, fame all are precisely the emotional beliefs. So why not promote religious and tradition that indirectly benefit the environment in a more modernized way. I salute my ancestors who still follow the tradition of " jungle devi puja".  A day is scheduled and all the villagers with their offerings march upwards towards a sacred place of the jungle, the strangest part is its most dense part of the forest situated nearest to the village. They all have their feast, worship the goddess and return. No villager has ever dared to disturb the abode of goddess but cutting trees or grazing animals, which is the reason the small streams that originates in this part are still running perennial and supply the drinking water to the whole village throughout the year. Perhaps our ancestors predicted this and decided to proclaim it as sacred place of jungle. What a tradition to save forest and environment? So nature lovers we should promote these areas and these superstitious traditions as if being a little superstitious we can save nature then it does not cost so much of higher political decisions, national budget distributions and other high profile activities that seldom plays its effective role.

So if you want to contribute, contribute to these places guys and let’s promote its saga to continue saving nature.  Or pay your homage to this place once you visit samsing.
