The core of the subject revolves around the concept of "anthropocentricism ecological crisis". Right from the evolution of human beings there were ecological values kept by, so that the recycling of resources provided an everlasting avenue for the biome to exist. The concept of recycling has given way for the modern thoughts of use and throw. The cyclic process has been given way for the linear philosophy of modern world.
The human species at the centre of the events is guiding the crisis in to a disaster. Even though, we are aware that there are no alternatives available. As all other species knows to live in harmony with the nature, the intelligent human has induced chaos in to the natural cosmos. And the resultant crisis has already eradicated many species from the surface of this unique planet and many are on the way out. Even though there were no deserts on the surface of this earth, the human in the name of development has created many of them and is still creating much more and eventually challenging the existence of human itself on the surface of this tiny planet. The irony is that still we consider this as the destiny of human. Still the modern human thinks that this is the right way of living, by destroying the entire other species. We take up the natural process in the name of development in to human efforts and still name the same thing as development, as there is a possibility of profit and increased GDP. The concept of GDP has vitiated the foundation of development in the modernity. Likewise the concept of NPK theory has destroyed much of our farmlands. When the modern science is dealing with the life, it has nothing, not even a primary idea of, what life is! Still it tries to treat the life and end up in creating more degenerative diseases. All these are discussed in the form of storytelling, so that the common man can discuss the concepts of biome from the point of view of nature and realize the truth. The dynamism of the life and its clandestine ways are not realized by the modernity. The eventual and instantaneous ecological crisis is thrusting upon us. The entire book is an effort to bring up the issues in the form of a fiction. That is the agenda under which the story line progresses. It further tries to expose the groups and ideologies which are responsible for such an imminent crisis. The name of the book is suggested to be "Beth Adama" which is Hebrew means "daughter of the earth".
