Travel Experience

The urge to discover more facts to sustain the ideas provided by the laboratory studies were responsible for extensive travels in India and abroad. During these years, I traveled
extensively almost all over the Indian coasts and many parts of the world. These travels involved thousands of kilometers of distance covered on foot in far-away remote places often inhospitable areas. This experience was superbly educating in providing me a very valuable vision of the vast spread ecological spectrum of variations extending from Indian Ocean to Antarctic, Arctic, Atlantic and Pacific Ocean. This knowledge of the varied habitats of different plant groups was of immense help in gaining insight into the exacting role of the “Organism environment” relationships.

Besides the usual scientific benefits of these travels, I could make useful observations on many aspects of conservation and the existing socio-economic problems of people living in far-away areas in often primitive and poverty stricken areas. This knowledge has been of much help in providing an understanding of the specific needs for economic development in harmony with nature.
