Agrarian movement that jolted colonial rulers

Birsa Munda (1875-1900) emerged as ‘Dharti Aba’ (Father of the Earth) in Munda society and is now being worshipped again as ‘Lord’ or ‘Bhagwan’. He was the prophet, the visionary and the ultimate revolutionary. The short life of Birsa commands profound respect.

Earth’s Exploitation

The dawn of the industrial era has harmed nature and its resources which were randomly exploited for many decades without restoring the earth to its natural state. Nature has been exploited in order to meet the demands for material needs of the people and to make money. These actions are said to be the major reasons for the worsening of environmental pollution. It has affected both the air and water. Development work must be carried out without excessive exploitation.
