It’s not just about a tribe, about the survival of a sustainable civilisation with the knowledge of over a thousand years.
It’s not just about their god, Niyamraja, the mountain that has fed the perennial rivers and fertilized the valleys for millions of years. Its about a global phenomenon taking place where a non-sustainable system systematically destroys a sustainable one, where short term profit has the power to overwhelm common sense and the consciousness of many millions, where progress is not progress but the wanton destruction of an eco-system and environment we will never be able to replace.
These are a people who have know and understood the true value of their mountain, Niyamraja, and this is why their mountain became their god, not out of superstition but out of a deep understanding of its significance to them and the survival of future generations.
