    Solution:

    The Bastar uprising took place in 1910.
    Forest communities protested against the changes imposed on them by colonisers in several areas of India and throughout the world. One of these was Bastar, the southernmost region of Chhattisgarh. The people of Bastar were deeply connected with the land they lived in and believed it to be sacred. But their intimate connection was threatened when the British colonists proposed to reserve around two-thirds of the forested land, prohibiting shifting cultivation and collection of various resources. Moreover, the people in Bastar were allowed to live in the reserved lands only on the condition that they would work for free. Hence, displacement and famines caused discontent, and people rose against the government. Gunda Dhur led this movement.
