Second Rabindranath Barthakur Memorial Lecture 2014 by Mr. Shyam Saran

Balipara Foundation Awards 2014 - Second Rabindranath Barthakur Memorial Lecture delivered by Mr. Shyam Saran - Former Foreign Secretary and Chairman, National Security Advisory Board Research and Information System for Developing countries.

I deem it a honour to have been invited to deliver the annual lecture in memory of Shri Rabindranath Barthakur, a much respected tea-planter of the old school, a great lover of the outdoors and, in his later years, a passionate champion of the rich bio-diversity and ecological treasures of Assam and of India. His love of Nature and his belief in the preservation of Nature in order to maintain the life-sustaining systems that nurture Planet Earth is reflected in the mini-forest he created at his home in Guwahati with local endemic species and same rare and exotic plants. His children and grand children have inherited his love of Nature and I wish to compliment Ranjit Barthakur, his son, for paying homage to his illustrious father by earning a name for himself as a naturalist and a conservationist.
