This is a true story from long long ago. Almost three hundred
years ago, in a village called Khejadli, lived Amrita. Khejadli village
is near Jodhpur in Rajasthan. The village got its name because of
the many Khejadi trees that grew there.
The people of this village took great care of the plants, trees
and animals. Goats, deer, hares and peacocks roamed fearlessly
there. The people of the village remembered what their elders
used to tell them. They used to say, “Agar perh hain to hum hain.
Plants and animals can survive without us, but we can not survive
without them.”
For the teacher: Encourage children to locate Rajasthan on the map
of India.

Amrita would get up early every morning and greet her friends
– the trees. She would choose a special tree for the day. She
would put her arms around the tree trunk and whisper to the
tree, “Friend, you are strong and beautiful. You care for us.
Thank you tree. I love you very much. Give your strength to me
also.”
Like Amrita, the other children also had their special trees.
They would play for hours in the shade of the trees.
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Is there a place near your house, school or along the road
side, where trees have been planted?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Why were they planted there?

Time went by. Amrita was
now grown up. One day she
went to greet her trees. She
saw that there were some
strangers in her village. They
had axes with them. They
said that the King had sent
them to cut trees for wood.
The wood was needed for
building the King’s palace.

Amrita was shocked. She
went to the tree that the
men were about to cut. She
put her arms around the
tree and hugged it tightly.
The men shouted and
threatened her, but Amrita
did not let go of the tree.
The King’s men had to follow
his order. They had to cut the tree. On seeing this, Amrita’s
daughters and hundreds of
villagers–old and young–
hugged the trees to protect
them. Many people including
Amrita and her daughters
died to save the trees.
When the King heard of
this, he could not believe
that people gave up their life
for trees. He visited the village himself. There he learned
about villagers’ respect for trees and animals.
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Do you remember what the elders of this village used to say?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Do you think we could survive if there were no trees and no
animals? Discuss this in your class.

The villagers’ strong feelings for trees affected the King greatly. He
ordered that from then on, no tree would be cut and no animal
would be harmed in that area. Even today, almost three hundred
years later, the people of this area, called Bishnois, continue to
