Forests have meant different things to different people in the Indian context- hamlets of outlaws, scene of beautiful images, abode of holy men, reserves for hunting and potential resources for exploitation. This volume explores these meanings and their relevance by examination of political party imagery, Bengali novels, wild life reserves` management, sacred groves of Karnataka, social significance of forests in Uttrakhand and the role of NGO`s in forest management in Jharkhand and Karnataka.
