Samashti Institute for Integrative Learning is pleased to invite you to a talk on "ILLUMINATING THE INVISIBLE; ROLE OF MICROBES IN THE BALANCE OF NATURAL HARMONY" on March 4, 2017, 8:30p.m. Please find invite attached.

Brief Description of Talk: Earth’s story is incomplete without microbes - optically invisible life forms with massively visible impacts. These life forms have aided in shaping the earth’s crust and atmosphere. With man’s selfish quest for supreme conquest over nature, leading to a variety of challenges like pollution, climate change, desertification and loss of vegetation as well as a plethora of other threatening issues, the question asked is ‘Can microorganisms provide natural balance and harmony to all the chaos?’, ‘Can our planet be restored by these invisible hands of nature thus saving us from extinction?’
