The consumer society of the West thinks: We are the Masters of universe. In contrast we Indians think: We are particles of the universe.
To give such lofty ideals is not an easy job. But someone has to do the job. It is not possible without much thinking, meditation and commitment. Fr. Varghese has shown such commitment to Environment. Without high philosophical thinking Fr. Varghese has come out with very readable and thought-provoking articles on environment in this book. He is full of ideas going deep into various aspects of environment with great concern and sensitivity. These articles are written at different times, places and occasions. But like the beads of a chain they all are arranged in a way to give a wonderful and sensitive picture of our environment. I am deeply touched by this book that I call it an environmental sensitivity.
My acquaintance with Fr. Varghese is very limited; but I get his books from time to time. Hence I am very much impressed by his seasoned thoughts and ideas.
