Q. 3

State what happened when the “Chipko Movement” spread across communities and media.

Answer :

Chipko movement was originated from a small village Reni in 1974 where a group of women under the leadership of Gaura Devi protest against indiscriminate felling of trees by hugging them. The Chipko movement spread slowly to other parts under the leadership of Shri Sunderlal Bahuguna of Silyara in Tehri region. Chipko movement is the movement where people form a circle around the tree and hug them to prevent falling of trees. The local people of Tehri-Garhwal district of UP realize the importance of forests and protest against felling of trees as well as giving forest products to other regions.

It helped in saving trees which ultimately result in conserving soil and water sources which maintain balance in our nature.
