Download Looking Back To Change Track book, Looking back to change track provides an answer to the questions that have marked the country's efforts to manage air pollution, water stress, waste disposal, forest wealth, and it's rich storehouses of biodiversity. In 1997, when India celebrated the 50th anniversary of its Independence, TERI's assessment of trends in the state of the environment in these 50 years sounded an alarm over the rapid deterioration of the nation's natural resources. 1997 was also a year when the fruits of economic liberalization were beginning to be realized, but what seemed to have slipped past policy-makers and the public alike was the pressure increased economic growth was exerting on India's natural resources. TERI estimated that the economic costs of environmental degradation in India already exceeded 10% of the country's gross domestic product. Released as GREEN India 2047, TERI's findings made it amply clear that neglecting the state of India's environment in the quest for development was an unsustainable proposition. The title explains that while in some cases, irreparable loss to the environment has occurred, in others, there still remains time to halt, reverse, and minimize the damage. As we step further into the 21st century, new approaches and strategies are required to tackle the onslaught faced by our vulnerable environment. This publication articulates some of these, which include progressive policy-making, sustained public'private partnerships, increased support for research and development of sustainable technologies, and last but definitely not the least, greater mobilization by civil society to protect India's natural resources. The message inherent in this book is that the stakeholders of India's natural resources include no one else but us Indians, and we need to partner each other to bring about a change in the way our environment is managed. For inspiration, we need to go no further than the Father of the Nation himself, whose advice ?Be the change you want to see in the world ? is as relevant to our relationship with our environment as in any other context.
by Ocampo Ambeth R., Looking Back 4 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Looking Back 4 book, Ambeth Ocampo on the inspiration behind this collection of essays: “Chulalongkorn’s elephants are the bronze elephants the King of Siam gave to Singapore and Java as gifts during his travels in 1871. I met the Singapore elephant first as I traced Rizal’s footsteps and found a reference to it in his diary. It was upon meeting next the Jakarta elephant that prompted me to compile this collection of essays that begins and ends with an elephant. More reflective than usual and going beyond Rizal and my 19th-centuray comfort zone, these explorations still carry my trademark irreverent humor.”

Download Looking Back 6 book, In these beguiling essays on what lies beyond the fringes of Philippine recorded history—whether pointing out the laughing carabao on the margins of a centuries-old map, or combing for shards of Ming porcelain on a coral beach—Ocampo reminds us that the endless gathering and joining and breaking apart of apparently 'useless' bits is, after all, what makes us what we are, and connects us with others in their own quest for identity.
by Judith Weinshall Liberman, Looking Back Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Looking Back book, Looking Back, the first collection of published plays from visual artist Judith Weinshall Liberman, brings the ineffable human experience to life, to the stage, and to the imagination. Written in her eighties, these four new plays explore a journey to understanding, as filtered through a mature perspective that raises questions relevant to our times. When her husband, a professor of law and a gifted pianist, suffered a stroke in his early fifties, everything changed. A heartfelt study of their shared journey to understanding and compassion, Empathy explores the impact of life-altering illness on a family. Until recently, Liberman never questioned biblical Abraham’s obedience to God, but after a lifetime of reflection, that all changed. Good Old Abraham questions the rationality and morality of Abraham’s behavior and his suitability for the positive symbolic role accorded to him by history. Like Michal, daughter of King Saul, Liberman has known the agony of grief in wartime. The loss of her only brother during the Israel War of Independence in 1948 inspired Liberman to create Michal, in which a young woman is caught up in forces beyond her control. As in her other plays, the implications of Sisera’s Mother extend beyond the confines of the drama. A lifetime of contemplation about the war against the Canaanites revealed something extraordinary to Liberman: the Canaanite commander’s mother was not a villain but the tragic victim of man’s inhumanity. A profound and achingly beautiful passage into the human experience, Looking Back brings new light to timeless issues.
by Joyce Maynard, Looking Back Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Looking Back book, A memoir of what it was like to be a teenager in a tumultuous era, from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Best of Us. Joyce Maynard was eighteen years old when her 1972 New York Times Magazine cover story catapulted her to national prominence. Published one year later, Looking Back is her remarkable follow-up—part memoir, part cultural history, and part social critique. She wrote about diving under her desk for air-raid practice during the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Beatles’ first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, and catching the first glimpse (on the cover of Life magazine) of a human fetus in utero. Extraordinarily frank, sincere, and opinionated, Maynard seemed unafraid to take on any subject—including herself. But as she reveals in a poignant and candid new foreword, she carefully kept her inner life off the page. She didn’t write about her difficult relationship with her mother, or her father’s alcoholism, or the fact that her best friend at college had struggled with the knowledge that he was gay. And she did not mention the most important part of her life at the time she was writing this book: her relationship with reclusive author J. D. Salinger, who read and corrected every page, even as he condemned her for writing it. In this special anniversary edition, Maynard’s candid introductory reflections on the girl behind the girl who wrote Looking Back lend a new dimension to this iconic analysis of a generation. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Joyce Maynard including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

Download Looking Back book, Dingoes proved a real menace there, so the family moved to Capella where they purchased the Paramount Theatre and a small cattle station before winning a land ballot off the failed Queensland British Food Corporation. He then married and moved to the Gold Coast then to Brunswick Heads and to another theatre. Television caused a recession in that so he went out as a deck hand on a trawler and cut timber before selling out and returning to the bush. He then took a position with British Petroleum being granted the whole of Cape as his territory. He then bought a produce agency and Stock Agency at Bowen in Queensland buying several cattle and sheep stations until a car accident killed his partner, so he sold out and bought charter boats, operating them from Brisbane to Thursday island, but after losing a deckhand retired from that and went back into business in Bowen.
