Human needs are insatiable. There are no limits to man’s irrational desires.He has tried to grab everything that has come on his way. This has put the earth and our natural habitat in great danger. The great Indian English writer, Amitabh Ghosh, through his non fictional works tries to create awareness about the threats to our environment.He sincerely dedicates himself to tell humanity about the most significant need to maintain a balance between needs and wants. Ghosh wrote his new book, “Jungle Nama” in metered verse to emphasize the need of boundaries in their most basic form. The ancient legend of Bon Bibi has been used as an allegory by Ghosh for the climate crisis.While we need to take certain things from the mother earth for our livelihood and sustenance,we should not cross our limits and destroy the land.Most traditional legends from Sundarbans, including the story of Bon Bibi, suggest that men should maintain balance and curb their greed in order to cohabit peacefully with the natural world.
