Q&A with Rishikesh Upadhyay




Rishikesh Upadhyay is the editor of the book The Life of Plants in a Changing Environment. An educator, he lives in Haflong, Assam, India.


Q: What inspired you to work on The Life of Plants in a Changing Environment?


A: Well, that is largely a mystery. Simply, I just love to write, learn, and teach.


Q: How did you research the book, and what did you learn that especially surprised you?


A: By day, I work at a local government college, and by night I pour my imagination out onto a page. I believe in and write about plants and their environment. It was in research and teaching for students in science that I stumbled across a desire to write articles and books.


Plants, though immobile, also have senses and could survive in different environment through different internal adaptive mechanisms, like humans.

Q: What do you hope readers take away from the book?


A: I hope they will recognize and learn about the importance of plants when they read my writings, because it’s a message that everyone deserves to be seen and understood.


Q: What are you working on now?


A: I am currently working on my next new nonfiction book. I would like to say that it is connected with plants, nature, and the environment in just about every way.


Q: Anything else we should know?


A: Yes! I love teaching, learning, doing research work in the laboratory and writing research articles and books. Readers can reach me via Google Scholar, Twitter, and LinkedIn https://Top of Form
