About the Book :
The present volume is in commemoration of the memory of one of the outstanding teachers and researchers in Geography.

The volume covers diverse fields namely, Geographical Thought, Environment and Pollution, Aspects of Agricultural Geography, Land Degradation, Regional Development and Planning.
