Memorial dedicated to the heroes of “jungle satyagraha” a civil disobedience movement against the British in 1930 (same year as salt march of mahatma Gandhi) to defy the laws that denied them to collect firewood from the forest. The satyagrahis (freedom fighters) were shot by the British but their stories live on. The British were obviously merchants & traders who looked after their own benefits at the cost of locals & ironically that happens today as well, Maharashtra is being deforested in the name of development, it’s mountains & rivers are being stripped for building constructions & every political party has it’s hands in it. #chirner #maharashtra #india #junglesatyagraha / on Instagram http://ift.tt/1DcHfw1
