Solution

i. Indian culture and traditions are always connected with nature, and rituals are laid down to protect biodiversity.

ii. In many cultures, stretches of forests were set aside and protected in the name of Almighty, which is called sacred groves.

iii. Such sacred groves are found in Khasi and Jaintia hills in Meghalaya, Western ghat regions of Maharashtra and Karnataka, Aravalli hills of Rajasthan and Bastar, and Chanda and Sarguja areas of Madhya Pradesh.

iv. Sacred groves serve the only chance of survival for some endangered varieties of animal and plant species. Tribals do not allow to cut even a single branch of a tree from a sacred grove.
