Articles by Sarosh Bana

Born in Mumbai, India, Sarosh Bana did his higher studies in Bio-Dynamic Agriculture in Basel, Switzerland, and Munich, Germany. In his journalistic career, Sarosh, who is the Executive Editor of the Business India fortnightly published out of Mumbai, he has written extensively on a range of issues, spanning Environment, Wildlife & Conservation, Defence & Security, Space, Energy & Power, Foreign Affairs, Economy, Politics, Policy, Poverty, Food & Agriculture, and Urban & Rural Development. Starting his career with The Indian Express in 1980, Sarosh was India's first environment journalist, writing on this subject when environmental journalism had yet to become fashionable. That was also the time he founded a nongovernment organisation (NGO) called Forum for People-Oriented Water Utilisation that centre-staged the Narmada Dam issue and eventually led to the coalescence of the largest conglomeration of NGOs worldwide ranged against one single issue. Through his NGO, he also published a quarterly review and convened several national seminars on the subject of land and water resource utilisation. Though much of his current writings are in Business India, he also writes for think tanks, specialised journals and foreign newspapers.
