As India plunges into a deeply interlinked and interconnected world focused on industry driven developmental goals, there is a pronounced need to balance the negative environmental effects which have been exacerbated by rapid growth. This paper endeavours to raise new questions about this very need and attempts to examine the challenges and fractures in the current way of life and how it is affecting an already deteriorating environment. It attempts to highlight a need for a sustainable developmental model to enable the concept of peaceful coexistence of humans with its natural life source. It briefly revisits the country's legal environmental paradigm to ensure that it is armed with proper laws and containment strategies to safeguard nature and correlates it with the international benchmark set for this era. The paper draws parallels with the recent events which have endangered our country's natural habitat and emphasizes on the need for a green consensus among political leaders.
