Empowering Inquisitive Minds: University Book Tour with 'Ecosociocentrism' at IAAS, Tribhuvan University

As I embarked on the journey of promoting my latest book, 'Ecosociocentrism: The Earth First Paradigm for Sustainable Living,' the response from universities across the country exceeded my expectations. Stepping onto the stage to share insights from 'Ecosociocentrism' with students and faculty members felt like a homecoming, where the fervor for environmental activism and sustainable living ignited a flame of hope within each audience member. The halls of academia echoed with anticipation as I unveiled the pages of 'Ecosociocentrism' to eager minds hungry for solutions to the pressing environmental and climate challenges of our time. With each university talk, the vibrant exchange of ideas and impassioned discussions reaffirmed my belief in the power of 'Ecosociocentrism' to inspire meaningful change in our collective approach to sustainability. Standing before the bright faces of students and the seasoned wisdom of faculty members, I felt a profound sense of purpose as I delved into the principles and strategic policy imperatives outlined in 'Ecosociocentrism,' knowing that together, we were forging a path towards a more harmonious relationship with our planet.

Institute of Agriculture and Animal Sciences (IAAS), Tribhuvan University

On April 8, 2024, I delivered a book talk lecture as an invited speaker of Institute of Agriculture and Animal Sciences (IAAS) in Kirtipur, Kathmandu. With great humility I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to the acting Rector and Dean of Institute of Agriculture and Animal Sciences (IAAS), Tribhuvan University (TU), Professor Bhargav Dhital, assistant deans, directors, faculties, and students for graciously organizing the reception, and the talk program providing me the privilege of sharing my insights from my book recently published by Springer Nature.  It is an honor to present my book to the library of this esteemed institution where I spent my 30 years of academic career hoping that it will be a valuable resource in the pursuit of ecologically sustainable agriculture system and environmental management.

I am, indeed, very grateful for such a warm welcome and felicitation. The development of productive and innovative agriculture technology given the diverse and fragile ecology of the country, geography, and other social and demographic factors in the context of adverse climate change events is tough and complex. As I have emphasized in my book, we need to focus on the development of ecologically sustainable regenerative agriculture production systems. Nepal must adopt the WEFE nexus approach of planning and development integrating water, energy, food, and environment to adapt and cope with the adverse impacts of climate change accelerating the glaciers melting in the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH). Our teaching and innovative research scholarship must be diverted to that end. This is a continuous saga that we must carry on our shoulders learning new lessons and innovating on what we have learned.

on what we have learned.
