“Necessary Wisdom about Environment should be attempted from first principles” is one of the strategic principle academe should practice in order to provide holistic education. The Indian Mythology accented a great deal on environmental preservation since ages, as Sikh Guru, Gobind Singh ji, (1666-1708), asserts in holy book Japji Sahib: “Pavan Guru, Pani Pita, Mata Dharat, Mehat” (meaning Air (as Guru), Water (as Father), Earth (as Mother) have immense importance in same relational order). Mother is the first teacher thus the environment has a vital importance, and its constituents in the belief of God have immense interaction.
Inculcating wisdom about environment begins from fulfilling societal imperatives and assumes the status just short of divinity. It uses Bhagwan (God) as adage.
This work primarily attempts to integrate the imperatives of Quality conduct (or processes) vis-à-vis the environment related perspectives of these activities. It takes as an exemplar the case of a fuel fired electrical resistance furnace, and analyses how paradoxical situations could be handled, with strategy and competence, so as to improve both Quality and environment.
