The British writer, economist and one of the early proponents of sustainable development, Barbara Ward expressed her concerns for the global environment through the above words long before the earth had observed the kind of destruction it is subjected to today. She could realize the early warning signs of peoples’ unsympathetic attitudes and approaches towards the environment and worried about its alarming future consequences. For the past several years, Dr. Sunita Narain, throughher incessant efforts, has constantly been cautioning us about the present state-of-affairs of the environment, particularly in the Indian scenario. The book, “Conflicts of Interest: My Journey through India’s Green Movement”, is a testimony of her relentless battles as an integral part of India’s green movement. From her confrontation with the country’s leading vehicle manufacturer Tata Motors to the global carbonated beverage leader Coca-Cola, the book depicts the journey of India’s one of the most prominent environmentalists today.
