Life with the Mahan forest is fulfilling, and Ramlalu Singh Kairwar expresses it beautifully. A tribal from Budher village, tehsil sarai, district Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh, he talks about how his livelihood is dependent on Mahaan forest. Listen to the excitement with which he shares how he cultivates rice and vegetables on his land and gets tendu leaves, Mahua fruits, Bela and other important things for his life from the forest. Like all other Mahan communities, he is upset and not in favor of coal mining. He is happy and comfortable with no dissatisfaction with his traditional way of living.
