Abstract:
India is the country which always becomes the victim to all kind of Disasters. The concept of Disaster management is as old as the history of Disasters in India. There are many ancient literatures like Vedas, Puranas, Bhagavad Geeta and Mahabaharata which gives an idea about how to deal with natural and manmade disasters. Arthasastra is also one of these ancient books which gave idea of systematic Disaster Management. Though the word Disaster Management is quite new, but these efforts have been existing in India since a long time. Kautilya had already touched upon many environmental issues which modern human society came to know only in the mid-twentieth century. The present article focuses on Disaster Management measures suggested by Kautilya and try to validate its relevance in the contemporary era.
