a very interesting story about the Kattunayakan, "tribal people who live deep in the forests of the Nilgiris Biosphere Reserve in South India. They collect and sell wild honey."

but also a sad story about how nature is being destroyed: "Babu interjects: ‘The most terrible sight I’ve encountered was on a cardamom plantation in Kerala. They sprayed a weedicide. In the evening when we were going home there were dead bees everywhere. My heart twisted with pain. I felt ill.’"

Beautiful story!
Shows that with respect for nature, nature takes care of us
The time will come when men will look upon the murder of animals as they look upon the murder of men.
