Jenu Habba

The festival has begun... and random thoughts creep in.
What could be done for and with people whose lives are as synonomous with forests as normal citizens.
I do not assimilate all that is to be taken in, but do know for sure that the people are highly dependent upon forest resources. For them, it is not a hobby but their livelihoods.
What is to be done and how things are to be sorted out, how the forest thrives and how does the wild survive are all questions.
The answer lies somewhere here, but where, it can never be understood simply. As times move ahead, so does our need and how do we incorporate these changes is a matter of severe doubts and exciting possibilities.
