The Value of Nature: Ecological Politics in India
Description
About the Book:

Despite widening awareness about the adverse effects of human activity on our natural environment, there are multiple perceptions of what needs to be urgently attended to and by whom. Whose reference point defines the value of Nature? For a vast majority of Indians Nature continues to be the source of lif eit provides subsistence and meaning and it contributes to their self-definition of who they are. It is also brutish and unpredictable often bringing statvation, conflict, and strife. For others who predominantly live in Urban areas priorities encompass pollution of air, water and land loss of vegetative cover and diversity of flora and fauna destruction of the ozone layer and destabilization of climate. There thus exist complex and vastly differing relationship with Nature in these two domains. How Nature is valued in each domain and how the dynamics in one impacts on the other frames ecological politics. This book explores the different approaches to the environment as well as examines the emerging international framework of coming to terms with the environmental crisis.

Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
