Suprabha Seshan , a gardener and guardian of the land, living for the last 17 years in the wild rain forest of Kerala, near the southwest tip of India is taking a fierce run here at the glad gab in Bangalore about the software boom, jobs, sudden wealth, the New India, which she believes has delivered itself into a deadly trap of consumerism, pollution, ruined forests and rivers, a virtual prosperity but a profoundly un-natural India. It is a New India, in short, without tigers or, soon, even orchids.

Gardener and guardian of the land, living for the last 17 years in the wild rain forest of Kerala, For 20 years now theres been an eco-tourism boom in Suprabhas jungle with roads, hotels, breaking-up of farms and new construction to serve high-end and mass visitors. The eco industry gets its name from the jungle, Suprabha says, but the jungle is withering. Ayurvedic medicine, the rage in New Delhi as well as Los Angeles, draws heavily on plants from Kerala wilds, but where will we get them in a few years? Better eco-tourism, I wonder, than the coal and bauxite mining that is churning a tribal rebellion in Eastern India? Mining is rape, Suprabha responds. Eco-tourism is prostitution.
