GANDHI THE ENVIRONMENTALIST: AN ECOCRITICAL REVIEW

Dr. Jyoti Syal, Mr. Sunil Kumar.

Abstract
Mahatma Gandhi is known internationally for his doctrine of non violence. He is famous for his
simplicity and deep concerns for environment besides leading people of India to achieve political freedom
through peaceful means. He proposed a model of non-exploitive economic system which would ensure
sustainable development in true sense and protection of environment. Gandhi’s environmental concerns are
embedded in his criticism of modern civilization. He presents holistic notion of human beings to emphasize the
spiritual aspect. He tries to set optimal limits to the use of machines. He examines the place of nature in culture.
He considers the centralized structures of governance by a few people and industrialization as threat to
environment. He puts rationality of human beings on test on ethical criteria. He prefers village ideology over
cities. He is a practical idealist who presents philosophical analysis of politico-economic structure at macro level
and practical solutions to save environment at micro level. He stresses more on minimizing waste generation
than waste management later. He wants to inculcate a sense of responsibility in young ones through education
system for protection and replenishment of the environment.

Key words: Environment, Ideology, localization, degradation
