Nature is known.. Ecology? Balances among Humans, Plants, Animals, Water, Soil, Atmosphere, and Energy? Therefore, Basics are here. If Violated, What Happens? What is in Store? Man never saw his Earth until 1969. But yet to realize, it is Fragile. Good Man wages a virtual war on bad men As the greatest Common Good Think Globally, Act Locally- Tanks, Coasts, Pesticides, Policies, Gender, and What Not Pestilence Stealeth in Darkness! Unseen Causes and Invisible effects, seen later Gene-based Diseases-Cancers, Birth Defects and Heritable Diseases. Why? Science turns sub-local and personal Therefore an iota of real Education And Early Literature on Nature


I studied and worked at BIirla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani;  Inndian Institute of Science, Bangalore and Universities at Berhampur, Madurai, Coimbatore, and Pondicherry. as a Post-doctoral Fellow, lecturer, reader and professor from 1964 to 2004.

I like teaching because it allowed me to read, write, reflect and transmit to others. I mostly taught Genetics, Economic Botany, Natural Resources, Environmental Toxicology, and Environmental Politics, among others. My instincts are related to Godavari, sea and islands in between, and the pristine ecosystem, where I was born and brought up. I have gradually evolved.

I became a Jack of many trades and master of one - thus, developing  familiarity with several branches of Biology and Environment, such as Plant Ecology, Cytogenetics, Floristics, Medicinal Plants, Pesticide Genotoxicity, Energy Plants, Ecosystem Genotoxins, Tanks, and Coasts.

My research papers, nearly 100 are published in India, USA, UK, SWITZERLAND, ITALY, HOLLAND, GERMANY, HUNGARY AND JAPAN and visited USA, UK, ITALY, HUNGARY, THAILAND and  MALAYSIA.

I developed deep interest in society and my popular articles, about 50+, appeared in Hindu, Indian Express, Down to Earth, University Today, Caravan, etc.
