Book Review: Pollution by N. Seshagiri


Pollution by Dr. Seshagiri lays down a rationale for pollution control. The book covers all kinds of pollution: air, water, solid waste, and noise. Information is well supported by statistical data. A lovely book to look at with illustrations by many artists. A book for an age group of 12-14 they say, but a very good reminder for grown-ups. It warns that Ganga is not pure anymore. The situation hasn’t changed much since the book’s arrival.

  1. How many pages does the book have?
    Maybe Google Books has digitalized it? Does Amazon sell it?
    What are his main “rationale[s] for pollution control”?
    How do his arguments compare to those of others who are in favor or against pollution control?


    1. Thank you for the questions, Dirk. I googled some.
      1-The pages are not numbered in the book. The book has 64 pages though.
      2-I did not find a digital version of the book. Infibeam has some funny number on the price tag. Made me laugh. It has been multiplied by a factor of 100.
      3-Too many reasons to note here, Dirk. One can write a book on them, and Dr Sheshagiri has!
      4-There is nothing said by the author that I’d disagree with. It is supported by statistics and unbiased. It’s an old book and facts are well documented. I’m sorry but the question is too vague/broad for me.


      1. “Too many reasons to note here.”
        Ok, ‘read the book myself’ is the conclusion.
        Thank you Anuja for drawing my/our attention to this valuable book. :-)


  2. From your review I think the books goes in line along with Rachel Carlson’s Silent Springs
