His professional career, dealing primarily with questions of sustainable agricultural development, spanned over 45 years, and took him to various corners of the world. He has authored/co-authored books in English, German, and Hindi. Listed in various international WHO’s WHOs, he is recipient of, among other honors, American Biographical Institute Gold Medal for Germany. Ramesh Agrawal has been very active in promoting inter-cultural and inter-religious dialogues. His discourses emphasize that one common feature among us, the people any where in the world, is that, irrespective of our age, gender, nationality, caste, creed, and skin color, we all are humans. This philosophy is reflected in some of his poems in this book. His current interests include writing poems, photography, travelling and playing bridge.
