It can be clearly mentioned that Jhum cultivation as an ecological sustainability; and comparatively critique the Modern Industrial Society and it's impacting the ecological crisis. It will reflect the implications of both Jhum or shifting cultivation and development of modern science and technology towards the ecological crisis.
