By: Sunita Narain
Written by noted environmentalist and writer Sunita Narain, “Why I Should Be Tolerant” is a quasi-autobiographical book which chronicles the global development discourse from the 20th and 21st centuries.
Narain, who won the Stockholm Water Award in 2005 and is listed by Time magazine as one of the world’s 100 Most Influential People, has captured the origin and context of the most important environmental issues of our times. Her essays delve into, among other things, the local-to-global connection, the problem of inequity, the “right” development model and most importantly, the role of the poor in the overall environmental discourse.
Narain covers topics that all have a direct impact on us every day. Her passion and ability to explain complex matters in simpler ways make it a book everyone can understand and relate to.
