The other experts who have also written essays include Daniel Yergin, Bill Gammell, Afsaneh Beschloss and RK Pachauri.
While releasing the book, vice-president said new sources of energy have to be found. “Humankind as a whole will be benefited by this book,” he said.


  1. This website talks a lot of things about IAS officers. But, claims that it supports views and respects other bureaucrats. But, I could hardly find any news regarding other service officers vis-a-vis IRS,IFS,IA&AS. I have seen so much of redundant information relating to IAS officers just like the above post. Dear administrator, please follow what u preach.
    Waiting for a day when officers other than from IAS are considered important by govt and people !
    Jai Hind !

  2. The same way government considers civil services day to be only for IAS and not other services. (As it is approaching near by.)
