Must read


Fredrick William Durr, co-founder of Dharmavana Nature Ark, near Bhuvanagiri, Hyderabad, has said that time has come to teach Environmental Science to children from the school level. He was the chief guest of Yarlagadda Sriramulu 19th Endowment lecture on Biodiversity Conservation and Ecotourism organised jointly by the Institution of Engineers, APSC and Malakshmi Group here on Monday.

On the occasion, he said that any kind of reconciliation with the environment should be a matter of constant action, and it will be possible only when it is an integral part of the education system. He also made it clear that huge damage was already done in terms of ecological balance, and if it is not rectified even now, future generations will be deprived of it with a lot of adverse effects that impact the very survival of mankind, which could be overcome by taking joint responsibility by all people.

Yarlagadda Harishchandra Prasad, founder, and chief mentor of the Malakshmi Group said that planting of saplings is the only solution for balancing the climate. “Science tells us what to do and history tells us what not to do,”

AP State Council for Higher Education (APSCHE) Chairman, Prof K Hemachandra Reddy, said that it is inspiring that the Malakshmi group is organising an Endowment lecture in the name of the late Yarlagadda Sriramulu every year to benefit the society at large.

Dr CV Sriram, State Secretary, Institution of Engineers, Dr Yarlagadda Tejaswani, Founder & Chairperson, Pleach India Foundation, Dr Jandhyala Shankar, Former Mayor of Vijayawada, Sandeep Mandava, CEO of Malakshmi Group, Sharada, CEO of Dharmavana Nature Ark and others were present.
