    Wow! Now that’s a very sensible tribe. Who don’t burn but bury their dead as burning will require cutting trees. I sometimes wonder would they qualify as the first of environmentalists who stood up for going green and animal welfare.

      I think we need to get back to our roots to understand the true essence of being an Indian.

      Excursion to Bishnoi village is certainly that sort of an experience.

    I would like to appreciate their extra care towards environment and animals. If I get a chance to visit Rajasthan then I will definitely pay a visit to Bishnoi Village.

    I’m interested in understanding something I saw on the site….they mention they don’t wear blue clothes…am I understanding that correctly?

    • admin says:

      Yes, you have understood that correctly. The burning of blue clothes is not allowed in the village as acquiring the blue color for them requires the cutting down of a large number of shrubs.
