Oxygen level, environment

Sometimes in the form of noise, do we have the imagination to hear the trees? Recent conversations of 17,000 trees falling from the Central Government’s proposal for the central project proposal have caught trees to make room for the housing project – usually peripherals for major public discussions – at the center of national discourse. The interesting thing is what is the uncommon vision of national capital area, a network of concrete buildings and opposing citizens who embrace the trees in the heart of a broad infrastructure. Confronted with the instinctive opposition, the government has caught this project for a long time.

The ongoing dialogue about the need to preserve trees is mostly centered around environmental and pollution. Commentators have expressed shock at the fact that polluting such large-scale trees will increase and harm the environment before this.

At a different level, in my mind recently, the persecution of the civil society has opened a window and gave us a chance to see trees and nature through a different prism – in the context of the existing organic relations between humans and trees; Between humans and natural landscapes It has opened a door for us to enter a different fictional place where trees are not seen as inanimate forms, but the roots, branches, leaves – living and active parts of the natural network of weaving and communication is seen as. Maintain one another

Suman Roy has clearly written about the network in his book, How I Become a Tree. Writing about his reconciliation with the tree, Roy takes readers to a world that is humble with “the vocabulary of silence of the active life of the tree”, a world that he has discovered after immersing himself , While spending long hours inside the forests, watching and listening to trees.

In this literary and creative imagination, the life of the tree is not necessary for humans to breathe clean air and stay in pollution free environment. The question is: Do we have imagination now, especially as time to noise, to hear the trees? Many people will ridicule this idea and sack it. But beyond the point of environmental damage and polluted air, we get enough material to reflect on what trees mean to us. There is a deep connection with humans which are often lost in the conversation here and now.

The research is shining, “writes Aftab Levinee,” In a redwood forest in Santa Cruz, California, I write about taking dictation for trees outside my cabin. They constantly speak, even if silently, the above communication – and sound, fragrance, Using signals and vibes underground. They are naturally networking, which is linked to everything that exists with you. “

I remember the extraordinary experience of walking through a redwood forest around the Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland. As soon as we left the sunflower path rotated through the jungle and entered its deep state, the light dimmed and the trees started reaching the sky, which started to wander around us. Stability was its voice. There was a constant, less discussion in the depths of the forest.
Haskell draws attention to several references to trees and their songs in literary and musical history: Pines whispers, leave cracking, branches fall. Artist Nandlal Bose, Bhaswati Ghos writes, “… while expressing their views on tree stretching, their characteristics and comparisons are comparatively compared to the personality of humans.” Grown in rich literary genres and folklore trees, they sometimes portray as evil humans, guardians sometimes against the wicked.

I bumped into a small corner of western Poland, citing the strange incident of “crooked forest”. There is a group of 400-odd pine trees near the city of Griffino, surrounded by a large pine forest of pine trees, which bend on sharp crooked angles based on their trunk. It was planted in the 1930s, no one knows why trees become bad, and govern the principles – by manipulating humans by genetic mutation and snowballing – it is an ideal demonstration that how our world and The world around us feels deep, historically related.
