Description of "Pebbles in Turquoise "

This book is a collection of stories in the sustainability space sharing personal experiences and encounters in Authors life. This collection is the third publication of the Author based on his blogs. Through these stories and musings, the Author attempts to raise important environmental concerns that do not have easy answers. Sometimes, the Author relates to his experiences as an academician and consultant uses humor and satire to discuss various environmental issues. The messages are often hidden and Knowledge is embedded in an implicit manner.The book can therefore serve as additional reading material (as "light reading") for a graduate course on environmental management and sustainability. In his three decades of international work, the Author has been to places and met with people. In these encounters he has had extraordinary experiences that enriched his life. The stories take in these cases a form of a travelogue and share some of his memoirs. This makes the reading interesting as the stories are a blend of "blue" and "green" and appear like pebbles in "turquoise", scattered on a seashore!
