 Living with Nature-School on Blog and Naturalism – the Eighth Sense is purely a voluntary effort, non-profit and humanitarian movement, to bring functional literacy to millions who lack access to formal education, and to augment formal learning and experiential knowledge. Such a humble cause is in the spirit of modern technology, which in spite of its tremendous progress, and billions of dollars it has generated, there are millions and millions of people out there who have yet to rise above their present condition. But environment must not pay for progress. 

This is the commitment of his blog, with the unselfish and untiring support of Google and its network. I share, insignificant as it may, the global thrust of Google and company.  I believe in the cause of reaching out for the grassroots, the conservation of the environment, without condition of honor or material gain. It takes great effort to the point of sacrifice to make this blog independent from partisanship of any kind in order to maintain its integrity and objectivity as a avenue of learning.
