Such a comment should not have co-me from a woman. It reflects how insensitive she is. This is not expected from an educated lady and a public representative like her. So what if the victim is a 'public woman'? One should not even make such a remark against a sex worker

If people have started accepting me as a mother, they will also accept us at workplaces and give us more opportunities

Frankly, in the ultimate analysis, the only way the world can be saved is if all of us voluntarily agree to cut down on the demands we make on the environment.

Millions of people who are most affected by such destruction, which results in poisoned drinking water, floods, droughts and disease, cannot find the wherewithal to fight for their right to a clean environment.

The sense of freedom and joy that one experiences in the wilderness is difficult to put into words.

Historically, mangroves have been treated as unimportant because nobody knew anything about them

Debi Goenka (Environmentalist)

When we spoke about mangroves, the response we would get was ‘mangoes?
