Solution

The similarities between colonial management of the forests in Bastar and in Java are many. The Dutch started colonial forest management  in Java just as the British had done in India, for timber. The villagers in Bastar were allowed to stay on in reserved forests if they provided free labour for timber firms; likewise, the blandongdiensten system in Java demanded free labour from forest villagers for cutting and transporting wood. Just as the Kalangs uprising in Java was quelled in 1770, the Bastar residents revolt was also suppressed by the British, in 1910.
