Woman for Trees Class 6 English Lesson 16

Woman for Trees Class 6 English Lesson 16

Bhalapur is a village nearly 84 kilometers from the block office of Mohla in the Rajnandagaon district of Chhattisgarh. Today, on what was a 12-hectare plot of deforested land, stands a dense green forest. In the mid-eighties, Vikram of Bhalapur organized all the women in the village, largely Dalits and Adivasis, into Mahila Mandal.

The Mahila Mandal had discussions on village problems. It was evident from the discussions that the greatest problem was collecting firewood. The village forest was shrinking. Thanks to the felling of trees by insensitive people.

The forestland at the time was full of stumps of felled trees. For protection from grazing animals, the women dug deep trenches all around the deforested area. They stood up as guards against poachers and the timber mafia.

Soon leaves started to sprout on the stumps. Today, a dense forest stands on the outskirts of the village. The dry twigs fulfill the locals’ need for firewood and the biodiversity of the new forest is a reward for their efforts. Later, plantations were done by the locals. The successful initiative has also inspired those in the village who had initially opposed the effort. It is not big projects and money that will protect the forests. But if due importance is given to local needs, people will come forward themselves to protect our forests.
