This book traces the global and national process of gradual change in the integration of development and environment and, in a deeper sense the ethics of the relationship between humans and nature. One may say that the basic message of the book is “…Nature protects if protected.” 

– Nitin Desai, Secretary-General to the World Summit on Sustainable Development (Johannesburg 2002).

“The book is a veritable treasure of knowledge that shows how to live today for a common future in which no one is left behind.  Krishnan’s central message through this book is that the need of the hour is not a hands-off approach to nature, but to harness it wisely. ”

 – Raghuvir Srinivasan, Editor, The Hindu Business Line.
