It brings into sharp contrast the fragile Himalayan ecology, due to continuous seismic activities and movements in the plates tectonics, and the increasing militarization, wars and the increasing militarization, wars and armed conflicts in the hilly regions. The Chipko movement launched initially by a few women brought into focus the mindless exploitation of the forest resources, and the related issues. Unrest in Sikkim over Rathong chu Hydel Project and Moist emergence in Nepal show their peculiar political slant. Political, economic and religious relations between Mongolia and Tibet bad its own mutual effects. In Uttarakhand, the women seemed powerful and influential due to their participation in Chipko and the agitation for the separate state.
