Creating a Livable Planet
A nation?s capability of self-sustainability is seen as the foremost marker for it to be considered a developed nation. Its self-sufficiency in agriculture, economy, health and education facilities for its citizens builds its sustainability. An ideal nation should be able to fulfil the basic needs for each of its citizen on its own. To achieve this level of self-sufficiency was one of India?s former President Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam?s major aspirations for the country.
Creating A Livable Planet is a volume especially compiled with an aim to preserve and spread Dr. Kalam?s enlightening and informative ideas on the usage of right technology to benefit and improve India?s agriculture, economy, atmosphere and health of citizens. He, through these articles, educates the citizens, both young and old, on how using inexpensive, conventional and nature-friendly techniques can help us enrich our agriculture, environment and health. He also advocates the adoption of necessary modern technologies that could help our society evolve.
