    Frames of change - Heartening tales that define new India

    The challenge before India is immense. We need to maximise the productivity of our environment in a sustainable manner. This calls for extremely disciplined systems of resource use and management. This type of management will never emerge unless we improve our policy and decision-making systems. The book retrieves some classic case studies so that they can be replicated in the national and global context. These initiatives can inspire out-of-the-box thinking among those who wish to start entrepreneurial ventures with a social purpose. While some have already become templates for wider changes, others can inspire governments to do more. These are the Frames of Change that define a new India.

    CLIMATE CHANGE NOW - The Story of Carbon Colonisation

    We live in the age of climate change—heat waves, extreme weather events, increase in diseases induced by deforestation, floods and snowfall in deserts, unprecedented hurricanes, storms and drought conditions across the world. The challenge is to find a balance between economic growth and ecological spaces. However, global climate negotiations, for over 25 years, are stuck, as the US, which is the largest polluter historically, has walked out of every agreement. This book is the voice of the developing countries, or the Global South, who are the victims of climate change, even though they have not contributed to the problem. And they will never have capacities to deal with catastrophes as much as the rich nations. Climate change is going to widen the gap between developed and developing countries. This is the story of carbon colonisation...
  9. Climate change - For the young and curious

    Understanding the biggest threat to life on earth in the 21st century Earth is getting warmer. The climate is changing, faster than ever before. Why? What is the science behind this? How are humans responsible for this biggest development challenge of the 21st century? Why are the developed countries more responsible for climate change than the developing countries? Are countries doing enough to fight this challenge? Everything is interconnected and what Sam does in California affects Hari in Patna. Understanding the connections and joining the dots is very important. This book explains the links, answers the questions and gives that insight to the global fight against climate change that we often don't take note of.
  10. DROUGHT BUT WHY? How India can fight the scourge by abandoning drought relief

    During 2014-2017 India was shaken by severe spells of drought that hit over 500 million people across geographical regions. Unlike in the past, these droughts did not spare the urban areas; metropolitan cities like Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru declared water emergency and several towns resorted to water rationing.

    “Drought But Why?” examines how an occupational hazard has turned into a human-made disaster of unmanageable proportion since organised agriculture began some 10,000 years ago. The book also delves into the experiences of several villages in chronic drought-prone areas of the country that remain unaffected by the scourge.

    These experiences show that India is a victim of its own policy that revolves around drought relief instead of working towards relief from drought in the long run. These villages offer the new commandments for drought management.
