There is an urgent need for environmental awareness in order to re-establish the broken link between modern man and nature. The belief that nature can be exploited indiscriminately can be shattered only when man realizes that the price he is paying for manipulating nature is in fact making man reach the end of his carrying capacity. The impact of climate change is having a drastic effect on life on earth leading to global warming, green house effect, natural and man made disasters. Global environmental awareness is of recent origin. But in India, evidence of this awareness can be found even in the pre-Vedic Aryan period.
