Getting habituated to a habit...
There is a competition to live a life that takes you farther from your roots. Our roots are inevitably ecological. Having gained the wonderful experience of knowing ecology from close corners over the last two decades, I behave like an objective chronicler of it. This blog is meant to be a contemporary chronology of ecology, economics and we the being. The blog will have text and visuals. Ranjan Panda

WIO to join World Water Day function at Angul: I shall speak on water crises of industrial towns!
from Water Initiatives Odisha (WIO)!
network like ours that is at forefront of water action, research and advocacy
in the state, each day is a Water Day. However, we try to engage
ourselves in some meaningful activity on the World Water Day(WWD) designated by
the UN, i.e. 22nd March 2015.
year, we celebrated the day with the fisher folk communities on the banks of
River Mahanadi where hundreds of fisher folks took pledge to be part in WIO's
'Mahanadi River Basin Initiative' to save India's 6th largest river from
you for your support during the last year's programmes and throughout our 25
years of journey in becoming the voice of water in the state.
year, we have decided to join the WWD function organized by groups of Angul as
they have invited me to speak about water crises faced by industrial towns such
as this. I am informed the Member of Parliament will also join the
function among others.
forward to a meaningful programme and to strengthen our network and campaigns
