1. How did the women led by Bachni Devi put up resistance to.

Tagore owes many things to Forest in his essay ‘Tapovan’ – Forest of purity. Tagore firmly believed that Indian civilization found its source of regeneration both material and intellectual in the forest.

He states India’s best ideas have come from the place where man was in communion with trees and rivers and lakes much away from the crowd. The peace of the forest has helped the intellectual evolution of man. The culture of the forest has fueled the culture of Indian society. The culture that has arisen from the forest has been influenced by the diverse processes of renewal of life that varies from species to species,
from season to season in sight, sound and smell. The unifying principle of life in diversity became the principle of Indian civilization. The forest is a unity in its diversity and we are united with nature through our relationship with the forest.

The greed and self-centered nature of human beings has led to dominance and exploitation of nature. Though forest teaches us the principle of equity and enoughness, man is giving priority to consumerism and accumulation of wealth. This is against the idea of unity in diversity and ecological sustainability that ultimately lead to impoverishment of nature and culture

2.“The conservation of bio-diversity is the answer to the food and nutrition crisis” – Discuss?

Bio-diversity refers to the existence of a large number of different kinds of animals and plants which make a balanced environment. It promotes democratic pluralism where every species gets opportunities to sustain itself in co-operation with others and no species in a forest appropriates the share of another species. The failure to understand bio-diversity has led to the impoverishment of nature and culture;
therefore it is necessary to practice bio-diversity intensive farming. By practicing and promoting bio diversity intensive form of farming, the yield is more and thus helps in solving the food and nutrition crisis.

3. “Conservation of diversity is crucial for the sustenance of both nature and human society” Discuss.

Rabindranath Tagore, the National Poet and a Nobel Laureate was inspired by nature. He started ‘Shantiniketan’ a forest School to create an Indian cultural renaissance and deduce inspiration from nature. Tagore owes many things to Forest in his essay ‘Tapovan’ – Forest of purity.
