Environment conservation is a term we have imported from abroad today. In fact, our forefathers incorporated the conservation of nature in the customs and affairs. It is sad that they are trying to preserve nature while avoiding them. It should be said that Indian women have a special role in culture. Women are closer to nature than men. That is why Indians call Bhumatha, Gomata, Gangamma mother. Women who have all the privilege celebrate the festivals of nature. Let us give some examples.

Can’t stop there… They are also conducting classes for local girls called Lakshmi Ashram for forest conservation. Inspired by the same motivation, many like Prerna Singh Bindra, Janaki Lenin, Dr. Vanaja Ram‌Paprasad, Poonam Bir Kasturi, Bano Haralu, Sugatakumari, Aartikumar Rao, Amla Ruya, J. Vijaya, Nalini Shekhar, Vidya Atreya, Radha Bhatt are standing up for environmental protection in the country.

For many of them, the struggle started at home. Puja must be done to Tulsamma in the house premises. They pray to light a lamp and look cool. It means that they start taking care of plants from the front yard. Starting from this, the worshipers perform Ravi tree, Neem tree, Amla tree, etc. trees in the temples with great devotion.

Venomous snakes are also given milk on Nagula Chavithi and Nagula Panchami festivals. That means indirectly they are giving the message to protect the trees and living beings.

Besides, Teej festival is also familiar to Indians. Women and young women celebrate this festival in the month of Shravana. Their family members and husband fast with good health. Worshiping nature in particular is a major part of this festival. This is also known as Haritalika. Pujas are performed with the leaves of various medicinal plants collected from forests and village outskirts. And on Sankranti, gobbe mums made of cow dung are piled in Rangavallikas and worshiped as Krishna’s gopis. The driveway is sprinkled with cow dung.
