World Environment Day!

Social/Environmental Cause is a big term. Often associated with a false pride of us doing something for environment/others/society. I don’t think it really works that way. In the beginning, even I believed that I am doing something which is good for the planet. Bringing a change to the world or making the planet a greener place, are good things to talk about. But let’s be frank here. If you’re planning to start gardening, do it for yourself. Do it because it is one of the best things to be done!

Earth provides us with everything we need. Right from our food to our shelter, everything. So the next time you plant a tree, don’t say ‘for a better Earth’, say ‘for a better me’. Let your acts be that of a gratitude. If there is anything that you can change for better, it’s yourself. Earth can take care of herself.

Happy Gardening 🙂

The Farming Woes

So here I was with a decision to do farming. But let me tell you, it was not an overnight decision.

As a Gardner I knew a lot about the current agricultural practices, especially the chemical farming side effects. So I went ahead educating people, conducting workshops, explaining them about organic and inorganic farming, etc

Till one day, where I started to blame the problem on somebody else – especially the Government, Farmer and Consumer.   What was I doing? I knew the problems, I knew the solutions and here I was doing nothing but telling people about the problems. That was a wake up call.

It is our duty to get up and do something about the problems we think we can fight. In that split second, this became my cause. This became the purpose of my life. To fight the farming woes!
