Responding to suggestions from readers, friends and colleagues, I decided to turn 60 select posts of the blog into a book titled ‘Sixty Shades of Green: Musings on Sustainability‘. Why 60? because this book also marks my 60th birthday.
A Few Glimpses of ‘Sixty Shades of Green’
Take a look at the Table of Contents.
What readers have to say about the articles
“Can you get anymore tongue in cheek and still have so much to say? I hope those who matter are tapping into your knowledge and capabilities to really address that is needed”
“Knew your excellence in teaching, communication, consultation in the field of environment, sustainability; this blog amazes me to know that your expertise is far, far more extensive. Hats off!”
“Wonderful simplicity and flow in the language exhibits an excellent teacher! So many things said without saying anything!! Congratulations!!!”
“The humor, as usual, is subtle- keeping a thin boundary between satire and criticism”
“It is fictitious but really fabulous… what a blog…. all my college friends turned colleagues started laughing and continued for a few minutes during recitation of the blog by one colleague”
“This is the only blog I follow and eagerly wait for every article that you post. I guess many professionals like me are grateful to you for sharing your thoughts, your take on various issues and experiences with an element of humor, which unfortunately is difficult to find these days”
More about the book
One of the characteristics of this book is that knowledge is embedded in the ‘stories’ in an implicit manner. Sometimes references are cited for further reading. Many of the articles in this book could therefore be of educational value to students as well as to teachers. The book could be potentially used as a supplement to a course on environmental management & sustainability. Further, some of the articles could be used to open up group discussions or formulate assignments.
‘Sixty Shades of Green’ will soon be available for sale. If you are interested in buying, please fill out the form below – it will really help me with the decision on the print runs (e.g. 500 or 1000) and associated logistics. Will be grateful for your early response. Estimated cost of paperback edition will be between INR 400 to 600 depending on the number of copies.
Dear Dr. Modak,
Wish you a very Happy Birthday!
I am so pleased to know that you are compiling a book of your blogs. I will try and surely use your book as a resource in my teaching.
Yours is a blog I anticipate and read without fail. I admire not only the simplicity but love how so well and humorously you describe very important things that are relevant to the changing landscape. In your blog I not only see a teacher of environmental sustainability but also a philosoper. I hope you keep writing for a very long time; I am very selfish – I want to keep laughing for a very long time.
Dear Dr Modak
Please book one book for me :-)) and one for my office library.
