The summit’s focus was Towards a resilient planet: Ensuring a Sustainable and Equitable Future. It was inaugurated by the Honourable Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, who highlighted India’s commitment to environmental sustainability and climate justice. Highlighting the need for adequate financing for successful climate actions, PM Modi called for developed countries to fulfil their finance and technology transfer commitments.

The thematic track titled ‘Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs): Regulatory and Policy Implications for India’, was organised on February 16, 2022, by The Energy Resources Institute (TERI) in partnership with the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA), Mu Gamma Consultants Pvt.

The results of the discourse led to suggestions on actionable steps, including (1) the requirement of risk analysis frameworks based on sources of EDCs and their impacts, (2) the development of a collaborative platform between ministries to monitor and regulate chemical substances, (3) the necessity for advanced research on EDCs to generate robust datasets, (4) the promotion of quality labelling systems for EDCs in food, (5) the strengthening of the regulatory framework by continuous improvement based on global benchmarks, and (6) the strengthening of institutional capacity by infrastructural, technological and knowledge enhancement of concerned institutions.

The panellists also stressed India’s need for a more substantial commitment and action plan to implement the Stockholm Convention for managing POPs in the environment, which impacts human and animal health. Chemical registries, which require firms to report on the chemicals they use, produce, or import, could be an essential lesson for India to learn from the European countries, especially Norway. Experts also stressed the need for strategic collaboration between analytical laboratories, research institutions, and regulatory authorities to make science-informed policy recommendations in India’s managing plastic and chemical pollution.

Himanshu Patel

It is said that where there is a will, there is a way. This proverb was translated into reality by Himanshu Patel, a young man coming from Chhatarpur, a small place in Madhya Pradesh, who studied engineering, but wanted to do something else. That’s why he took the camera and became a wedding photographer today. Himanshu Patel is doing wedding photography today by living in Mumbai and for this he has also formed his company ‘Epic Stories ‘. Now Himanshu is very famous for wedding photography among other people as well. This is the reason that now he is seen doing photography not only in the country but also in the weddings held abroad also.

Every parent expects their children to do something good. This hope was also from Himanshu Patel to his parents. So Himanshu did his engineering from GSITS Indore, but by the end of the year he felt that his world was in photography. So even after placement, he listened to his heart. Photography was his hobby then, but it later became his profession. Himanshu says that my father supported me a lot. I convinced my father for my profession. I think you have to be skilled for what you do. Nothing happens just by thinking, you have to work for it.

Himanshu Patel further said that there is a huge difference between professional photography and casual photography. I am photographer. I shoot famous celebrities. But till date I have not taken photography class from anywhere. Just went on learning with his perseverance. Today people have tools like YouTube, from where they can learn photography. Today there is no need to go to any school or college. Himanshu said that it is important to follow the impression for good photography. Follow such an impression that you relate to yourself. Regarding phone photography, he said that there should be an understanding of manual photography mode. With basic under standing, you can do better photography than the phone. Good photography does not require an expensive camera.

Let us tell you that Himanshu Patel has done wedding photography of many celebrities like Yuvika Chaudhary, Shweta Tripathi, Prince Narula, Karishma Tanna and many more international projects are with him, which he is going to shoot abroad. Himanshu says that privacy is most important for a celebrity. Act professionally in big weddings. Wedding photography does not mean that you have been shooting everything. You should know when to shoot what.
