Packaged prospects
Packaging and printing is a field packed with colourful possibilities, writes Sunit Dhawan
If you want to understand the significance of packaging, just remember that bright coloured pill that you took out from an attractive covering before popping it into your mouth. Or recall the instance when you were tempted to buy a tetra pack of juice just because of its eye-catching packaging. Or simply take into account the way in which the makers of confectionery items entice children into becoming loyal consumers by packing their products in glowing wrappers with vibrant colours.

Jungle approach
Usha Albuquerque
Forests are among our most important natural resources, and contribute significantly to our economic development. Not only do forests enhance the quality of our environment, they provide firewood, timber, fodder, and a number of industrial raw materials. With news stories on the hunting down of tigers, poor habitation of many animals in the wilds and the depletion of the forest areas, there is a greater urgency for many more committed professionals to maintain and regenerate the forest resources.
