India is one country that has always expressed its stand for environment and its safety – be it the historical ‘Chipko Movement‘ or #SaveGanga. Times have changed now with the increase in population and decrease in personal care of the environment. We are just spoiling our surroundings day by day. But our ancestors were way more careful than us. On this World Environment Day and for every other day, realise the importance of the surroundings you live in.
Khurki brings you these photographs of good old days of clean & ecology-friendly India.
