Description
Environmental law has succeeded in unshackling man's right to life and personal liberty from the clutches of common law theory of individual ownership. Examining the matter from the constitutional point of view, it would be reasonable to hold that the enjoyment of life and its attainments and fulfillment guaranteed by Article 21 of the Constitution embraces the protection and preservation of nature's gifts without (which) life cannot be enjoyed. There can be no reason why practice of violent extinguishment of life alone would be regarded as violative of Article 21 of the Constitution, The slow poisoning by the polluted atmosphere caused by environmental pollution and spoliation should also be regarded as amounting to violation of Article 21 of the Constitution.
