Q. 5

What was Gandhiji’s concern about resources conservation?

Answer :

Gandhiji voiced his opinions about the utilization of natural resources. He placed importance on simple living, that is, utilising resources to fulfil needs, not greed. His motive was to lift poverty from villages by introducing manual labour in the production of village economy and check unlimited consumption and exploitation of natural resources. He stated that renewable resources should be utilized and their usage should be minimalized to complete the natural cycle of regeneration and maintain permanence of our survival. His non-violent principles are evident in his methods to preserve natural resources as he believed that violence in the destruction and wastage of natural resources would disrupt the harmony of nature and hinder growth and progress.
