The Telegraph - Calcutta (Kolkata) | Metro | Green mantra from monk in Merc

  • tags: no_tag

    • A monk drove into Press Club in a milk-white Mercedes cutting a sight as unusual as the announcement he was there to make. This year, the traditional procession of the naga sanyasis at Kumbh Mela will raise a cry for the cause of conservation.

      Soham Baba, the head of the Juna akhada of sanyasis, had a message which echoed some of the concerns at the recently concluded Copenhagen summit — global warming and its effects on the glaciers.
