The environment is the wellspring of life on earth. Environmental laws have assumed greater importance in the past few decades because of climate change and global warming. However, the concept of environmental protection and preservation is not new. It has been intrinsic to many ancient civilizations. Ancient Indian texts highlight that it is the dharma of each individual in society to protect nature. The ancient Hindu text Atharvaveda states:
“What of thee I dig out, let that quickly grow over”.
