My dear fellow earth dwellers,
Let me first introduce our organization which is dedicated to all of you who are the citizens of this earth and for whom this creation will work for. Our earth is (may be?) the only planet in this universe which carries life, so beautiful and resourceful in nature but also rigorously systematic. We are born here, enjoy its beauty, utilize its resources, and die. Our right to dwell here and use it for our livelihood comes with responsibility too. It is the duty of the earth dwellers to keep it safe, undisturbed, and beautiful as it is for the generations to come. Perhaps happiness lies here only. Unfortunately, we are using this earth reckless and without care. Our selfish acts in the name of development are jeopardizing the rhythm of natural processes. The Celestial Earth is thus dedicated restoring the responsibility of mankind to protect, conserve and maintain this lovely planet and to make it heavenly and celestial.

It was the call of the Motherland which impelled Dr. Tania Ray Bhattacharya to return back to India during the last year of her Doctoral studies in Yokohama National University in Japan in 2012 to work and contribute to her beloved county of birth. She was also continuing her research in Kolkata, her hometown during this time, for the completion of her Ph.D thesis dissertation work which was based on India. During those struggling days of her research work in India, while travelling to her work place everyday, she used to get absorbed into the beauty of nature of her hometown which she left long ago. It was when she felt the call for her responsibility towards the mother Earth, and felt the divine urge to do something for protecting this moribund planet which has given everything to mankind. This was the initiation point of the formation of The Celestial Earth…
Dr. Anindya Bhattacharya, Tania’s husband extended his full support towards the dream to come true by the very next year on the 7th day of January, 2013. The registration of organization “The Celestial Earth” happened in Kolkata…and the history created..
Anindya also returned to India by the middle of 2013 leaving his international career job in IGES, Japan. And the family sifted to Gurugram, India due to Anindya’s new job in Ernst & Young, India . Tania started operating The Celestial Earth from an office room of their resident in Gurugram along with taking care of the household and their little daughter.
The Celestial Earth started growing and sifted to her first ever own office in May, 2015. Eventually, Anindya also left his job from E&Y in the year 2017 to fully dedicate his efforts for the growth of The Celestial Earth. And from that point, there was no looking back for the prestigious journey of The Celestial Earth……..And today Celestial Earth is a well-known brand and has secured her own reputation in the field of Sustainable Development worldwide for her contribution and uniqueness in the developmental policy research and green movement with the application of state-of-the art methodologies.
