Dr. Pawan Sharma exhorted on the ideals of anthropogenic and egocentric practices that man resorts to. He pointed out that mere thoughts couldn’t change the reality, but radical actions were needed for the betterment.
Dr. Parvinder Singh enlightened the gathering with the fact that the imbalance of the nature within humans caused them to let their greed over rule them. He further added that the greed with which we defined our actions, ended up bringing calamity to the environment.
