    Hindi Words for Nature

    India is a country which has been and still is very close to nature. India is lucky to be able to experience all the seasons that Mother Nature bestows on earth. Not just seasons but the terrain also – mountains, plains, valleys, coasts, India has all of them.

    Nature in its various forms was worshiped by the early inhabitants as Gods and Goddesses and even today names of Gods are associated with certain forces of nature . We even associate certain animals and flowers with Gods and Goddesses; the vehicle of Lord Ganesha is a mouse, and the lotus flower is considered very dear to Goddess Saraswati.

    India has been primarily an agriculture based country, and our dependence on nature is multiple and immense. Modernization has had its impact (positive as well as negative) on nature. Efforts are being made to create awareness and preserve stretches of country in their natural state.

    In this land of diversity, Hindi is one of the most commonly spoken and understood languages. It is primarily spoken in northern and central parts of India.
