Nature is being worshipped by human race way back when, as he was aware of the fact that he is depending on nature. Therefore, he worshipped, protected, admired and nurtured the nature, and got life, nourishment and protection in return. Literature of the world has evident the interdependency of human and nature. But as time passes man had started considering himself superior to other creatures and tried to dominate and exploit nature and other natural things. Through the ecocritical lance my paper is an approach to highlight that in the process of civilisation and to get comfort man had exploit the wilderness and uniqueness of nature which had already been started to disturb the ecosystem, the life support system existed on this Blue planet.
