One of the sad effects of scientific advancements is the destruction of environment and nature. Consequences of our technological progress results in adverse effects such as deforestation, air pollution, and mingling of toxic chemicals in water, and ultimately results in depleting biodiversity. Eventually, we may need to conserve nature and biodiversity. One such effort is the formation of Mann Society.


Brain child of the young Ashish Khatri while he was still in his teens, the institution owes its origin to likeminded individuals, educationists, engineers, doctors and socially active youths. This is a non-profit, non-governmental, and non-religious, voluntary organization that works for the betterment of people in the rural and urban areas of the state.
