जैविक सेतु और महात्मा

महात्मा गांधी जी के विचारों से कोई अछूता नहीं रह सकता। औद्योगीकरण, शहरीकरण, भौतिकतावाद की पिछले कुछ वर्षों में चली आंधी में वे थोड़ा धूमिल अवश्य हुए, पर जैसे जैसे इन के विनाशकारी परिणामों का आभास लोगों को होने लगा, गांधी जी की कालजयी अवधारणाएं पुनः प्रासंगिक होने लगी हैं। रेखा रूपी संसाधन-उत्पादन-उपभोग-अपशिष्ट अर्थव्यवस्था ने तीन सौ वर्षों में ही पर्यावरण संतुलन को विनाश के कगार पर ला कर खड़ा कर दिया जो करोड़ों वर्षों से चक्र रूपी जन्म- पालन-मृत्यु-जन्म व्यवस्था से शाश्वत बनी हुई थी। साथ ही संस्कार, विचार और सामाजिक आचार का भी ऐसा ह्रास हुआ जो भारत के मूलभूत चरित्र को बदलने लगा। कोई आश्चर्य नहीं कि ऐसे में गांधी जी द्वारा भारतीय संस्कृति एवं संस्कार के गहन अध्ययन एवं समझ पर आधारित दर्शन को पुनः व्यवहार में लाना अपरिहार्य हो गया है।

धनधान्य से संपन्न भारत के नागरिक

भारत इस पृथ्वी का ७वां सबसे बड़ा भूखंड है | रूस, अमेरिका, यूरोप, ब्राज़ील, कनाडा और चीन जैसे देशों के मुकाबले हमारी भूमि का रकबा भले ही कम हो लेकिन भारत विश्व का सबसे बड़ा खेतिहर देश है, क्योंकि हमारे यहाँ ६० प्रतिशत भूमि पर खेती होती है | जबकि अन्य देशों मैं मात्र २० प्रतिशत भूमि ही खेती योग्य है | खेती ही भारत का भूत, वर्तमान और भविष्य है | हमे समझना जरूरी है |

Water's Role and Use

Water is at the center of life. This is why nobody can live more than 3 to 5 days without any water intake. Drinking water and brain function are integrally linked. Lack of water to the brain can cause numerous symptoms including problems with focus, memory, brain fatigue and brain fog, as well as headaches, sleep issues, anger, depression, and many more.

Over 70 percent of your body is composed of water and every function in the body is dependent on water, including the activities of the brain and nervous system.

The Food Constant

Who came first- chicken or the egg ? A confounding question, coming to represent all such. Not very easy to answer these `cause and effect` posers either, a grab at the head or tail of which may land on the opposite of the intended target.

It is very interesting to watch this interplay in operation between buyers and sellers in the nascent but rapidly growing organic food market as part of the growing pursuit of `sustainable` lifestyles.

We better toil to save the soil!

Soil is one of the vital living ecosystems and natural resource for sustaining all creations of God; human, animal, vegetation and the mineral kingdom. It is not possible for the ever-increasing world habitats and populations to procure food, cloth or shelter without soil.

Sir Albert Howard called Indian Farms an Estate

Before we start talking about Sir Albert Howard let us reconcile the fact that the global food is contaminated with agrochemicals at least in big cities and towns of the World.

The model of development that we have accepted over years has made us to eat petrol and diesel along with rice, bread and vegetables in our platter. The way villagers are running toward cities, is considered as progress, the same way as a country is known as developed which consumes exhaustive energy. And this has coined a new term in Western developed countries – the Food Mileage, meaning how much your food has travelled to reach you.

IPI (Institute of Plant Industry) Indore should be revived

In his Presidential Address to the Indian Science Congress in 1926 at Bombay (Now Mumbai) he starts with reminding his scientific audience that in the past, farmers have sometimes done very well without the scientists.

"The great benefits that have flowed from the application of science to practice are not always on the side of agriculture. Scientific method itself has sometimes profited from the association. Further, the man of science has had to realize that progress is possible without the aid of science, and that some of the greatest developments in agriculture, even at the present day, have been brought about by empirical means. Examples of notable advances in agriculture which have taken place without the aid of science are to be found all over the world."
