Increased Urbanization no Solution to Developing Sustainable India of our Dream- Kulpati Prof PB Sharma

The nations around the world are sold on the idea of increased urbanization as a solution to make the wheels of economic development go fast to meet the objective of trillion-dollar economies and to provide modern amenities to a larger proportion of the world population. India is no exception, as is expected to achieve the target of 50% population living in urban towns and megacities by 2050. No wonder as the world cities are regarded as the powerhouse of world economic growth, accounting for 60% of global GDP and hence  form the basis of developing a  prosperous world, as per the UN Habitat World Cities Report 2020. The report also mentions that the world cities occupy 3 percent of earth area but consume 70 percent electricity and account for 80% of total carbon emissions as of today! What more, the rapid urbanization is resulting in a growing number of slum dwellers, inadequate and overburdened infrastructure and great pressure on services such as waste collection and disposal, water and sanitation systems, roads and transport, worsening air pollution and unplanned urban expansion. 


Increased urbanisation for development strategy assumes that in the years to come the cities will be greener and sustainable by increased focus on energy efficiency, sustainable technology innovations and smart and intelligent systems to manage urban habitat. Smart and sustainable cities are being projected as a promise for a green and bright future to the global community.


 But the advocates of urbanization forget that increased urbanisation after the globalisation and liberalization created megacities and urban townships but also created several problems including exodus from rural areas to cities and metropolis towns. They also created slums. It is alarming to note that In India by 2011 the slum population was 5.41% and by 2017 it increased to 10.4% of India’s population. It is further projected to grow to 18% by 2036. Hence, if the business as usual continues by 2050 when urbanization is expected to grow to 50%, the slum’s population shall account for almost 40 % of population in India, says Prof PB Sharma, Vice Chancellor Amity University Gurugram. 


The UN Secretary General in his foreword to the WCR-2020 has said “We cannot go back to business as usual. Cities and communities are demanding that those in authority take the opportunity to build back better. To emerge stronger, we need a sustainable, inclusive and green recovery for people and the planet. That means dealing with the existing challenges of how cities are planned, managed and financed, and ensuring their development is compatible with the goal of net zero emissions by 2050”. The emphasis here is clearly on ensuring a green and sustainable future for the mankind.


I must not hesitate to say that the increased urbanization is the decease of the western mind and is not the best way for a country like India to create a green and bright future to either the current or the future generations. A better way for a country like India where 80 percent population is still living in rural areas would be to find better ways of developing a New and Sustainable India of our dream. 


A better way would be, to “Go Rural with a High-tech Mind and Scientific Solutions” and build rural areas as  vibrant economic growth centres of new India, creating millions of jobs and usher into an era of mass entrepreneurship, powered by the innovative genius of young India,  said eminent academician  Prof PB Sharma making a strong case for going back to basics of sustainable , happy and developed habitat during his deliberations at the North Zone Vice Chancellors  meet at Shoolini University, Himachal Pradesh  organised by Association of Indian Universities, AIU. The VCs meet was to explore the role of the universities and institutions of higher learning in realisation of the SDGs for a nation like India. 


Presentations at the VCs conference were made by a galaxy of experts from Indian universities, online education providers, UN-Habitat, NITI Aayog, Ministry of Housing and Urban affairs and School of Planning and Architecture who all deliberated on contribution of HEIs in making Cities and Human Settlements Inclusive, Safe, Resilient, and Sustainable to meet the SDGs. 


Our major focus in India should be how to create jobs in millions and yet without the exodus of our population from rural to urban areas. The advocates of urbanisation shall argue that it is for the reasons of job creation and to usher rapid economic growth that the urbanisation-based development is needed. What they forget of course that the same jobs could be created in the rural areas had we been able to penetrate rural areas with good quality education, skilling and industrialisation in areas that matter for a sustainable rural development. High-tech aggrotech, Food-tech, info-tech, scientifically developed herbal Pharmaceuticals and whole lot of cottage industries, including in areas of modern technologies like low-cost electronics, and a large number of ancillaries of modern industries can be pushed in rural areas now that skilling and good quality education can make its inroads in rural India. This would not only decongest the cities that are already choking because of population exodus from rural to urbanization. Green energy technologies, water conservation in agriculture and improving the yield as well as quality of agriculture produce would be the positive outcome of go rural with high-tech minds. We spend so much of efforts to educate rural children in the cities and delink them from their native habitat in our urban centric industrialisation thus denying the rural India the benefit of its talented children. A high-tech rural centric development model is needed for a country like India for achieving the goal of sustainable inclusive growth in the coming years.


Professor PB Sharma while chairing the session on SDG-12 on Contribution of HEIs in Ensuring Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns said “As we move deeper into the scientific explorations and mind boggling technology innovations now on, the education in Indian universities should take on board sustainability and sustainable development goals as the guiding principles for accelerating innovations and rolling out startups powered by the inspired minds of young India to make New India a prosperous and happy abode of humanity alongside achieving the goal of inclusive development powered by mass entrepreneurship and sustained focus on creating a green and sustainable future. I would advocate for a strong case for redesigning our education system tuned to sustainability.”


Prof Sharma also said that our age old traditions of education for man making was founded on the principle of Janani Janam Bhumascha Swargadapi Gariyashi (develop your motherland as the heaven on earth) despite the fact that education in ancient India has a universal appeal. The mass production led industrial development in India created increased demand for labour, both skilled as well as unskilled and also created huge migration of labour from villages to industrial hubs in large cities and metros. The great economic disparity that India growth story created during 75 years of India’s independence is a matter of grave concern. 42.5% wealth of India is still in the hands of the top 1% of population while the bottom 50% account for mere 2.8% of India’s wealth in 2020 as per a paper by Maitreesh Ghatak of London School of Economics (June 2021). It is also interesting to note that the corresponding figures for 1991 were 16.5% for top 1% and 8.8% for the bottom 50% of the population. Thus, the globalization and liberalization that made Indian economy to grow leaps and bounds also resulted into greater economic disparity due to growth-centric development devoid of equity and inclusiveness. The damage it did for environment and air and water pollution created further tears and distress in the Indian society, said Prof Sharma, who is also the founder Vice Chancellor of DTU and a former Professor of IIT Delhi

A Song to Save the World

Amidst today’s chaos and agitation, a growing global radio initiative is bringing a message to keep cool and care for our world. The fresh and catchy pop single “Song of the Year: A History of Cool”, playing to 200 cities on five continents, uplifts people’s spirits and catalyzes a timely call to the United Nations for a peaceful and healthy future.

“Song of the Year” is the work of the award-winning Canadian musician PĀRVATĪ, a Renaissance woman who composes, performs, produces and mixes her own songs in addition to being an author, educator, and the CEO of the multinational charity Parvati Foundation. Her “Celestial Pop” sound and production quality have been hailed by some of the best producers in the industry. “Song of the Year” brings immediate appeal, reminiscent of Taylor Swift, Hailee Steinfeld, and Katy Perry. It addresses our planet’s fever with a refreshing blend of hopefulness and practicality. But the power of the song is not just in its radio-readiness or its capacity to lighten hearts and footprints. Nor is it just that this song has been donated to Parvati Foundation and all its proceeds are going to the foundation’s future humanitarian work. Beyond these, “Song of the Year” is unique in the directness, effectiveness, and compassion of the cause it advances: MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary.

Few people realize today that the food, water, and safety of every living being on Earth depends on the health of the Arctic Ocean—which is now in grave danger. As Arctic ice disappears at the alarming rate of 14,000 tons per second, corporations and countries are moving in to profit off the thaw—at the cost of us all. MAPS, the only initiative of its kind, changes international law to establish the largest marine protected area in history. Safeguarding the entire Arctic Ocean north of the Arctic Circle from exploitation, it is a baseline necessity for our collective future. “Song of the Year” has been launched to support millions of MAPS petition signatures to hold world leaders accountable for a healthy future regardless of the results of COP 26 (the United Nations Climate Conference). At the same time, it is being sent to every world leader along with the MAPS Treaty for immediate signature.

As James Gustave Speth, the American environmental lawyer and advocate who cofounded the Natural Resources Defence Council, said, “I used to think the top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change… But I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy… and to deal with those we need a cultural transformation.” Parvati Foundation is creating that transformation through Gift the World, its global education strategy to realize MAPS. “Song of the Year”, the leadoff track of PĀRVATĪ’s “Ocean Anthem” album dedicated to MAPS, is the beginning of something beautiful.

The music video for “Song of the Year” is coming soon, followed by more music, books, and video for MAPS. Don’t wait in the meantime to make your voice heard at Parvati.org. It literally means the world.


“I speak now to give voice to the billions of people who have no food or clean water— and the situation is getting worse. We need to make changes. We need a peace sanctuary—not just for global stability, but to ensure the basic necessities for all life. The world is numb, especially after COVID, to considering these problems. Gift the World, our global education strategy for MAPS, is the antidote, uplifting humanity and our capacity to grow, love, and serve.”
– Parvati

“Parvati is a unique phenomenon in the music industry.”
– Chris Porter, multi Grammy-winning producer and engineer (David Bowie, George Michael, Elton John)

“There is an unabashed force of freshness that shines through all of Parvati’s work. Poised to make its mark on the charts, it’s effervescent, hooky, danceable, and at the same time feels deeply timeless.”
– Cashbox Magazine

“It is hugely important to establish the proposed Sanctuary.”
– Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, UN Messenger of Peace, Ocean Elder

“The Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary is the only sane choice for the sake of our seas, our atmosphere, and all life.”
– Yvo De Boer, former Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change

RoundGlass Foundation commemorates installation of 100 waste management facilities in Punjab villages

Mohali-based RoundGlass Foundation commemorated the successful installation of 100 waste management projects at an event in Hardaspur village near Patiala. The objective of the event was to bring together and felicitate sarpanches, waste collectors, and members of village youth clubs who have been working with the Foundation to set up and run these waste management facilities in 100 villages.

Mr Sandeep Hans (IAS), Deputy Commissioner, Patiala, addressed and felicitate the sarpanches. Three sarpanches were selected to share their experience of working with the Foundation on this project. The event was held in compliance with all COVID-19 protocols. 

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Sandeep Hans, Deputy Commissioner, Patiala, said: “This is indeed a milestone in our journey of creating a cleaner, sustainable Punjab through sustainable, efficient waste management systems. The best thing about the RoundGlass Foundation’s Waste Management program is the community involvement — the team mobilizes and educates the local community to adopt and maintain solid waste management systems, thereby ensuring their participation in the cleaning up of their villages.”

Venkatesh ‘Venky’ Raghavendra, Strategic Advisor to the Foundation, said, “We aim to reach all the villages in Punjab and engage with the community on the importance of waste management and proper waste disposal. Our efforts have resulted in employment generation, reduced stress on village landfills, and helped clean up local water bodies. Our pledge to create a cleaner, healthier Punjab and enable a life of Wholistic Wellbeing for its people in line with our mission has only strengthened with the setting up of our 100th Waste Management facility.”

RoundGlass Foundation is transforming the villages of Punjab and helping people live better lives. The Foundation partners with the Government of Punjab to implement a decentralized model of segregation for composting and recycling for efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable waste management. The state and local governments provide 70-75% of the project cost in subsidies and the Foundation covers 20-25% of the cost. 

Over the last three years, the Foundation has set up waste management projects in 100 villages, creating as many jobs and impacting 15,000 households. The projects cover 14 districts including Fatehgarh Sahib, Patiala, Ludhiana, Mohali, Mansa, Rupnagar, Bathinda, Moga, Gurdaspur, Kapurthala, and Nawanshahr.

Apart from setting up a waste management facility in each village, the program appoints door-to-door waste collectors who are trained to collect trash daily from households. The team also holds workshops to spread awareness on the importance of waste segregation and management among locals. Besides, it helps clean up villages and rejuvenate local water bodies with a view to  safeguard the environment. Since the program’s implementation, villages have converted waste into more than 100 tons of compost that is available to farmers. 

The event also showcased a film entitled ‘Women Building a Cleaner Punjab’ on the Waste Management program directed by internationally acclaimed film director Gurvinder Singh who is known his national award-winning projects Anhe Ghore Da Daan, Chauthi Koot, and Khanaur, among others.
