In India, a high density of people is dependent on forest products in order to cook, to heat the houses and to feed the cattle. This has been a tradition for decades if not centuries among Indian villagers. Wood is indeed a privileged energy source since it is free of cost and is, for now on, still available. But this wood collection is step by step destroying the ecosystems of the forests.

It happens all over the world Debu, shamefully here trees are cut down daily to make room for more and more houses, but the trees are not replaced, still I like your photo and the wood is not wasted as it is here, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

The wood can't last for ever, Debu, what happens when it runs out? A fine capture of rural life. Carol

A happy man doing a necessary job.
You just need somebody to plant more trees
to try and keep a balance.

Nice shot and great write up.

It is a world wide dilemma, but what choice do poor people have? It is up to the wealthier members of society to plant more trees.

Well captured male portrait viewed here. Itís understandable why people with very little money go into the forest to bring home wood for cooking and heating.

Pleased to be number 30 on this upload.

Dave.

I like this she looks so content stress free in her work, unlike the stress workload that we see so much in the western world.
Great image.
