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's Mahanadi River Basin Update - 5th June 2015
Mahanadi River Basin Update – 5th
(An occasional update from ‘Mahanadi River Basin Initiative’ of Water
Initiatives Odisha and Mahanadi River Waterkeeper)
Theme: World Environment Day
Focus on Mahanadi
Greetings from Mahanadi on World Environment Day!
A leading daily newspaper of the region
'Pragativadi' profiled me as "Environment's Guard" in an exclusive
feature that covered our work on the Mahanadi in specific and other
environmental issues in general. The following link shows the feature but that
is in Odia language and hence I am sorry for the inconvenience caused to
friends who can’t read this language.
However, just wanted to give the link for your information.
Several regional newspaper carried our view points
in their WED features and articles.
However, one of India's leading English dailies quoted me extensively on
water pollution issues in mining areas.
