T.N. Khoshoo in his unique book “Mahatma Gandhi – An Apostle of Applied Human Ecology” writes “Gandhiji’s entire life and work is an environmental legacy for all humanity. This was not because he wrote a big treatise on the environment, or led a movement to stall a dam or any industry, or clean a river, or whatever. This was because he was a practitioner of sustainable development in the real sense of the word. Here then was a Man who was in harmony and peace with the environment and with himself”. In this issue we have given a few famous quotes of Mahatma Gandhi.
