The artists fear that once the draft became the law of the land it could only help degrade the environment considerably, he said.Around 280 pieces of artwork are on display at the exhibition. The works include landscape paintings and photographs.The voice of the artists from across the nation is a clarion call and it must awaken the whole of India, said the organisers. Dr. Chakravarthy was cited in a communication here as calling on the country to “awake, arise, rest not until we save our nation, our mother land.”The draft EIA 2020 notification had raised alarm among a wide spectrum of people ranging from environmental activists to the community of fishers in Kerala.
