Prof Swaminathan’s message for International Mother Earth Day – 2019
Mother Earth sustains life on our planet. Although we give love and affection to our biological mother, we do not show the same concern for the health of the Earth. The International Mother Earth Day is a timely reminder of our responsibility not only to safeguard mother earth but also to strengthen it through attention to the physics, chemistry, microbiology and productivity of the soil. Mother Earth will then keep sustaining life for today and tomorrow.
