Chipko movement pioneer Sunderlal Bahuguna dies of COVID-19 - 21 May 21

Highlights:

What was Chipko Movement ?
  • The Chipko movement was a Gandhian form of protest against deforestation by locals in the Himalayan region. To stop deforestation, locals - primarily women - would make circles around trees and stop men from cutting them down.
  • The first Chipko action took place in April 1973 in Mandal village, now in Uttarakhand, and spread over the next five years to many Himalayan districts.
  • The movement sparked after the government decided to allot a plot of forest area in the Alaknanda valley to a sports goods company.
  • With the help from a local NGO, the women of the area went into the forest and formed a circle around the trees, protecting them from the men who came to cut down the trees.
  • The women kept an all-night vigil, guarding their trees until all of them left. 
  • By then, the news of this movement had spread to nearby villages and more people joined in.
  • Sunderlal Bahuguna, who was leading the movement, appealed to then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to implement a ban on cutting down the trees. 
  • His appeal resulted in a 15-year ban on chopping green trees in 1980.
  • The following year, the government wanted to honour his efforts by awarding him the title of Padma Shri, but he turned it down. In 2009, he was honoured with the Padma Vibhushan.
