Pahari women activists discuss deforestation, gherao district government officials, and demand “food not liquor” in Junagadh, Himachal Pradesh.
“This forest is our mother’s home We will protect it with all our might!”
Photos from the Chipko movement which was started and led by Garhwali women in Uttarakhand against deforestation and the usurping of land in their villages by the government and corporations. An extremely important event for discussing ecofeminism in India, the Chipko movement resulted in demonstrations where village women would protest by clinging (hence, chipko) onto trees that were about to be razed to the ground. Traditionally, the forest is integral for the livelihood of poor, rural pahari women who collect “food, fodder, and water” there while doing back-breaking labor. Losing their rights to the forest or the jungle would have devastating effects on their lives. Scanned from The History of Doing by Radha Kumar.
This time last year I returned from my visit to India. Before then I had not visited in fourteen years. Usually we stick to Gujarat (where my family is from) to be with family. This time, since I hadn’t seen India in fourteen years, my family set up a Golden Triangle (Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur) trip. I also spent New Year’s Day 2010 climbing a mountain in Junagadh(my father’s hometown) in Gujarat.
I was looking over my pictures recently and decided to put them up.
These are some of the pictures from my ascent of Girnar in Junagadh. Since there are temples at the top of Girnar, there are stair for pilgrims. So when I say I climbed the mountain, I mean I basically hiked up stairs, but 5000+ winding stone stairs.

દરેક ગુજરાતીના મોઢે તમે પણ આ ડાયલોગ સાંભળ્યા હશે. હા, વાત થઈ રહી છે ગુજરાતના શહેરોની એવી વસ્તુઓની કે જેણે તેના સ્વાદની જેમ બધે સોડમ પ્રસરાવી છે. તો આવો નજર કરીએ ગુજરાતના ક્યા શહેરમાં શું વખણાય છે તેની યાદી પર…
Bahauddin Maqbara- it is a mausoleum owned by “Bahaduddinbhai Hasainbhai” (who had a short and catchy name), in the 1890s, he was the Wazir (a word for a minister/lord in Muslim countries) of Junagadh, India. The mausoleum suffers nowadays (and in the past few decades) from horrible negligence, lats hope someone will remember to take care for this unique structure before it is damaged beyond repair.
