This blog is my attempt to raise important environmental concerns specific to India. Sometimes, I relate my experiences as an academician and consultant and sometimes I use humor and satire to discuss various environmental issues through stories. “My Professor Friend ” is a character I have created to give another point of view – a character I simply adore!
The stories are not real… but are created from my experiences and suitably crafted for the purpose. The messages are often hidden and Knowledge is embedded in an implicit manner.
Sometimes I cite names of the people, only to bring in a flavor of the “real”. Main messages are more important. No offence to anyone please. And I do hope that the blog readers understand this perspective.
In my three decades of international work, I have been to places and met with people. In these encounters I have had extraordinary experiences that enriched my life. This blog takes in these cases a form of a travelogue and shares some of my memoirs. These narrations are indeed real… but sometimes “doctored” with names and places changed – and sometimes “blended” only for the interest of privacy.
Finally, I hope that this blog also serves the purpose to connect with professional colleagues, friends, peers and students and engage them in discussion for follow ups and actions.
I will be most pleased to receive your feedback and comments
