Non-violence to Nature: Prof M S Swaminathan

June 5, 2017: Each year, June 5th  is celebrated as the World Environment Day in order to remind us that environment security is basic to all other forms of security. Gandhiji pointed out that we cannot be non-violent to nature if we are going to be violent to each other. There is growing violence in the human heart as is evident from the increasing number of incidents leading to injury and death. Therefore on this day, the principle of non-violence should be promoted at all levels, from microbes to man.
