Book Details

One relatively unknown area where Gandhiji's philosophy and wisdom was well ahead of its time relates to his understanding of environmental issues and his insights into the nexus between human actions and their implications for the ecology of this planet. Many have attempted to capture Gandhiji's all-encompassing wisdom on paper, on film, and on tape. Here is another venture in this direction, stemming from TERI's deep belief and hope that the children of today will be the leaders of tomorrow. This book distils the essence of Gandhian environmentalism into lucid and evocative reading for children. It highlights Gandhiji's respect and love for nature and his advice on 'simple living, high thinking' through many of his quotations on environment and development. This book owes much to the late Dr T N Khoshoo's well-read 'Mahatma Gandhi: an apostle of applied human ecology', also published by TERI.
