This documentary and article highlights the issue of displacement among the tribal communities in Maharashtra and questions the rationale for eviction of forest dwellers from their own ecosystems

At that time the objective was to create inviolate wilderness areas, a concept that is typically American.

The question of poaching is related to our greed for money and pleasure, amusement and desire to control.
