What is the need for conservation of resources? Elucidate in the light of Gandhi's view.

Answer :

Gandhiji said, “There is enough for everybody’s need and not for anybody’s greed. This statement highlights the greedy and selfish nature of humans. The resources are sufficient for every human’s need and can easily fulfil it. But it is not and can never be enough for a human’s greed.


Gandhiji had focused on the conservation of resources due to the following reasons:


1. Irrational consumption: The consumption of a resource by humans is often irrational. This means that other humans might not be able to have access to these resources.


2. Overutilization of resources: It is often observed that people over utilize the resources or waste them. A very common example s the wastage of water. This will lead to a scarcity of resources in the future.


3. Important for development: If a country has to develop, it must focus on boosting its economic activities. Any such activity requires resources in a large amount. If these resources are not preserved, it will become difficult to speed up the developmental process in the economy.


4. Impact on future: If we continue to use resources at such an exorbitant level without any attempt of conservation, it will be exhausted. Since it cannot be replenished easily, the future generations might not even have access to it.


Gandhiji has highlighted this issue of resources in many of his writings. He said that it becomes of utmost importance, that we should now take sincere efforts for the conservation of resources.
