Human being desire and expect authenticity, relevance and inspiration in the activity and relationship they participate in. Profound wealth of Nature has everything in it. As mankind is slowly losing the equilibrium with nature which was maintained in the past. We are now divided, in those for controlled development and those who want the indiscriminate consumption of Natural resources. Like many other biodiversity hot spots all across the globe, the western ghats is suffering due to indiscriminate consumption of natural resources. Western ghats is not only known for its biodiversity but is also  important for its anthropological history. Simple realization of value of natural and anthropological history inspires us with its high values. Let us try to preserve it.
