Monsoons are here again. Although they haven’t blessed us completely in full force, we still have the hope that they will return with all their abundance, bringing prosperity. Monsoons are such an important part of the nation as they directly affect our food security to a large extent. Similarly, another issue that impacts our food which has been simmering at the fringes has suddenly found relevance into the national consciousness. That is the issue of pesticides and organic farming – an issue taken up by Satyameva Jayathe the previous Sunday. Get the full episode here: http://bit.ly/No27pm if you haven’t already caught it.
Whether one agrees or disagrees, this is not an issue that one can ignore. So do have a look, debate and get your answers. Meanwhile, the episode has also brought into prominence Dr. Ramanjaneyulu, who has been working on this issue since 1996 and now has managed to get 35 lakh acres of farm land completely organic. Incredible achievement! His story here: http://bit.ly/MZy5JA
