Aligarh: President Pranab Mukherjee said that our relations with nature should be guided by the principles of reciprocity, limitation, cooperation and sustainability.
Addressing the inaugural function of the 37th Indian Social Science Congress at the Aligarh Muslim University here today, the President said that it is important that our country grows in harmony with nature.
