Permaculture farming

Permaculture is designed on the relationships found in nature. In other words the development of agricultural ecosystems intended to be sustainable and self-sufficient.

Unity is strength .When it is selfless its bliss

First of all, I got the golden opportunity to visit Sathnur 80 kilometers away from Bangalore and arrange a school garden in an organic way.

True perma-culture, is not just organic farming – the ideology should in practice means harmonious integration of environment and people —

Seeds soaked for better outcomes More specifically it is the design of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have diversity and stability while considering the existing environment and natural ecosystems

providing their food, shelter, and energy in a sustainable way.

Most noteworthy Perma-culture design has

  1. Focus on closing the nutrient and water loop by using waste, and reducing the dependence on inputs.
  2. Creation of healthier soil and diversity of produce
  3. Variety keeps residents engaged and excited about growing their food.
The first sign of our victory (Optimization of 
natural energies, e.g. wind, dust, leaves, bird droppings. )

Imitating nature by conserving the soil and water, and genetic capital. There is intensive use of space. Plants are allowed to set seed and are inter-planted for pest control.

Field prepared after multilayered mulching and nutrients black soil
  • You are unlikely to see food plants in rows. The permaculture site will look more like a food-forest with some open glades full of herbs.
  • Nutritious food and habitat for people and native animals and birds.
Our school premise and team members

Dependence on observation.Perma-culture design is a mixed technology. 

Nature simply takes over. The soil will continue to heal, the forests grow and someone else can step in to rebuild our efforts

Types of cycle in Permaculture

There is a significant difference between closed and open food-production systems.

Similarly, the Ideal Perma-culture ‘Farm’ brings production of food closer to consumers and the consumer’s wastes back into the cycle.

I would like to see people more aware of where their food comes from. For instance, rainwater is harvested, the fertility of the soil is replenished by crop rotation and soil itself is the compost here.
Also richer the soil, lesser the chances of it being infested so definitely no harmful pesticides in the picture.

Thus Permaculture will help in:

  • Soil conservation and betterment
  • Conserving the natural ecosystem
  • Providing healthy and chemical-free food
  • Meeting the ever-increasing food demand
In layman’s terms, it is an agricultural method that optimizes the resources available in that particular surrounding for farming. It is not only economical but also sustainable as there are ample of benefits for this style of agriculture.
The whole concept is based on synergy.
  • Maximizing the optimization of minimum resources  
  • Zero waste process
  • Preserving the biodiversity
  • Lessening global warming
Villages wonder boy, holding hook at his chest, look at his glorious smile (Organic Farming promotes the use of natural fertilizers, making use of the natural carbon cycle so that waste from plants becomes the food (fertilizer) of another.

A farming method that utilizes the surrounding ecology as its very foundation for cultivation is a permaculture farming method.

The whole concept is based on synergy.

Most talkative and intelligent girl

As the basis is very much in tune with nature, twinning with the existing ecosystem, there is no need for external resources as such.

As a result, Urban permaculture is today a popular permaculture principle that goes beyond space limitations.

In this style of permaculture, any landscape be it an apartment space or a rooftop or merely a balcony space is designed for growing plants.


Mahatma Gandhi -10 life lessons

I do share something inseparable with Gandhi, that is our birthday 2nd October however since childhood people especially my mother tell me that I share the only quality of speaking the truth which is similar to him otherwise I am opposite of Gandhi.

Somehow in childhood, I got contaminated with the ideas of hatred for Gandhi, I do remember having a heated argument in a train journey when I was in class 12 with some college graduate over Gandhi contributions to the world than one fellow traveller told me that one day you will realize the real value of Gandhi.

After that many years when I went to Delhi for further education, I met Mr Avadh Ojha where he was hardcore Gandhi sympathizers pray, preach, idealize, respect and invoke incidents from Modern Indian history to inspire us for Gandhi.

In Hindu literary fest eminent writer Ramachandra Guha express why Gandhi is still relevant to us in ten points so I would like to share them


He gave India and world ways of resisting “unjust authority without using force”. He gave the tool of nonviolent resistance whenever there is injustice you can use nonviolence ways to overcome them. This is the moral power of nonviolence.

2.Recognize own shortcoming

loved his country and culture although he does recognize its shortcoming, he asked first to look within us in the way which we ever imperfect and find out the ways to overcome it.

3.Building bridges

Spends his life building bridges between the horizontal caste barriers and vertical religious barriers.
“A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave”.

4.Religious linguistic pluralistic:

Even he was from the Business class Gujarat family but he was not a narrow-minded he loves the other languages and religion. He was a religious linguistic pluralistic who got his experience from Parsi, Tamilians, and others.

5.Not a frog in the well

Gandhi was much aware of Western ideas he learns a lot from Ram Chandra Bhai, Gokhale on the inequality of caste and gender and from Tolstoy as well. He was having no hatred for even Britishers
“Hate the sin, love the sinner”.

6. Precocious environmentalist:

A precocious environmentalist who thought on brindled growth and consumerism bring a planetary disaster.
“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.”

7. Grow and Evolved:

Most important that he was having the ability to grow and evolved. As progress toward them as fact changes, he changes his attitude. Which is evident from continuously changing thoughts over race and caste.

8. Extraordinary ability:

To make leaders out of followers he gives some Colossal figure in free India like Kamla Devi, Zakir Hussain and many more

9. Seeking a middle ground:

Willingness to see the opponents point of view reach out to them and seeking a middle ground. He was capable of holding grudges. He used to says that there is no hatred only intellectual or political difference.

10. Bring transparency:

The political life of Gandhi could be anybody could reach to him talk to him.

At last his wise words
Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.”

In a mischievous mood, Krishna applied color on Radha’s face.

Double Striped Sword

दो धारी तलवार

आजकल अपार्टमेंट में ही सेवा करने का मौका मिल रहा है, तो बहुत सारे नए पुराने लोगों से मिलने का मौका मिलता है ।

दुआ सलाम और खैरियत पूछने के बाद, लोग अक्सर एक सवाल कर देते हैं?

जिनसे नीता परेशान है, आर यू वर्किंग?

थोड़ा सा  समय लेते   हुए उसका जवाब होता है ,”नो आई  हेड!

 नाउ , ,आए  हैव टू कैरी हाउसहोल्ड वर्क , एंड टेक केयर ऑफ़ माय मदर इन लॉ!

ऐसे सवालों के हर रोज पूछे जाने के कारण वहअवसाद का भी शिकार हो रही हैं

और दूसरी तरफ एक प्रतिष्ठित आईटी कंपनी में काम करने वाली हेमा नाइट शिफ्ट करके अपने बच्चे को जैसे-तैसे पालने की स्थिति में मजबूर हैं,

इस तरीके इस तरीके से उनका घर पर केवल शाम के ६:०० बजे तक रहना होता है।

बच्चे का पालन पोषण तो हो रहा है। परंतु  बच्चा केवल मोबाइल , टेबलेट के साथ ही बड़ा हो रहा है, इस स्थिति से वह भी परेशान है।

घर से निकलते वक्त हेमा के शब्द थे , ऐसी स्थिति रही तो दोनों ही आईटी में काम करते रहे और बच्चा बाहर घूमता नजर आए आखिर इसके परवरिश की जिम्मेदारी भी तो हमारी ही है।

एक तीसरी तीसरी श्रेणी भी है ,

जिसमें सुमन नाम की स्त्री घर पर ही रह  कर हिंदी के ट्यूशन देती है,

बात करने पर पता चला कि उनमें भी संतोष की भावना भरपूर है, कहती हैं “इससे घर भी संभल जाता है और देखने की अवसाद की भावना भी नहीं रहती है”,

जरूरत है ऐसे सेल्फ एंप्लॉयमेंट (स्वरोजगार) को बढ़ावा देने कीवास्तविकता यही है। जो नारी अपना १००% घर को समर्पित कर रही है ,उसे कम ना समझे सम्मान दें।

आपकी नजरों में एक कार्यरत स्त्री को है ।क्योंकि वह अपने बच्चों में अच्छे मूल्य परवरिश और आत्मविश्वास के रूप में सुदृढ़ कर रही है।

उसका सहयोग वैसे ही सराहनीय है ,जैसे की इमारत बनाने में ईटा रखने वाले कारीगर का होता है ।वहीं भारत का भविष्य सुधार रही है।

साथ ही जो घर और बाहर दोनों में काम करने वाली औरतें हैं ,उनको भी एक सुदृढ़ सपोर्ट सिस्टम की आवश्यकता है ताकि केवल बच्चे और पति का ख्याल रखते हुए वे अपने आप को  भूल ना जाए।

इसीलिए तो इसे दो धारी तलवार कहा गया है, औरतें इस में माहिर होती जा रही हैं.।
