Zee JLF 2018 | Don’t ignore changes in environment: Experts 29.1.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Environmental concerns dominated the fourth day of ZEE JLF. Several sessions questioned the development paradigm at the cost of rocks, forests, rivers and oceans.

Another session focussed on the Aravallis, the mountain range that ...
