Earth Witness: Reflections on the times and the Timeless by Akanksha Joshi

Four common people – a teacher, a farmer, a shepherd, a father – find themselves on the front line of the earth’s biggest, most complex crisis: climate change. Belonging to India’s ancient tribes, they bear witness to the science behind the changes that affect their day to day life. Living in diverse climatic regions, they use this challenge as a part of their art with nature.
