Earth Day Celebrated With Hopes of a Greener Tomorrow

Disappearing trees, a polluted river and a handful of concerned citizens. Delhi, burning under the scorching summer sun, heralded World Earth Day Sunday, //by raising its voice on various issues that are pricking our fragile ecosystem.

'It's a problem which can be solved only when people themselves become conscious about it,' said Nanni Singh, executive director of Trees for Delhi, a coalition of expe
