 Precautionary principle emphasises caution, which means prevention is better than cure or after burning of hands catching leaves serves little. Post-mortem is an analysis or discussion of an event after it is over. Here it is easy to put the blame on some others. We rarely learn from the past experiences. Indian politicians never cared to follow the precautionary principle but are looking at post-mortem, particularly on the impact of calamities such as cyclones, floods, pollution, etc. on agriculture or viruses like Covid- 19.
