This book presents an authoritive explanation and discussions of wide range of problems, in three sections, related to the environment, at a level suitable for the students and practitioners of science, engineering, administration and planning. This book will be of particular importance for the increasing number of teachers and students involved in the degree and diploma courses in environmental science. This book begins with a section on Bioremediation which provides a clear understanding how microbes, following their degradative processes, contribute maximally to the benefit of mankind through biotransformations of waste materials. The second section on biocontrol discusses the meeting of the major exponents in the scientific community working with enhancing different biological control agents (Fungi, Bacteria, Virus) on different targets (Pathogens, Insects, Weeds). The final section introduces the reader with emerging technologies like Microorganisms as indicators of pollution, Chemotaxis and its role in combating pollution, Microbial activity under electric fields for bioremediation and the most advanced technique of Biogranulation.
Homecoming, Indian style is a true account of an Indian woman's return to India after many years of living in England. She describes the overwhelming difficulties encountered while trying to settle back into life in Delhi, in particular, the gender bias, status consciousness and red tape involved.

The Shroud of Turin is a linen cloth bearing the faded image of a man who appears to have undergone physical torture consistent with Roman crucifixion. The Shroud is preserved in the St. John Cathedral in Turin, Italy. It is widely believed to have wrapped the body of historical Jesus of Nazareth and has become one of the most perplexing enigmas for the researchers. The author has attempted to explain the scientific causes of the image on the Shroud under the realm of quantum physics. By drawing a plethora of evidence from the alchemical secrets of resuscitating spectral plant out of ashes, the author establishes that material body of organisms even if consumed to ashes, retain their selfsame form and figure. Even parts of the body like blood, skin, etc. are capable of forming the 3D geometrical structure of the host organism in its entirety, which is a quantum hologram in modern scientific terminology.

Love suffereth long, and is kind; Love envieth not; Love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up. Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. And now abideth faith, hope, Love, these three; but the greatest of these is Love The Bible (1 Corinthians 13 : 4-7, 13)
