Seven years ago, the pesticide residues in the food chain had me raging and thinking. So i made a conscious shift with 16 years of being in the corporate to becoming a self contained natural farmer. I traveled the length and breadth of my country, India to understand low cost sustainable farming techniques by applying organic principles. My research on this tiny magnificent Gift of life " Seed" which is the very first origin in our food chain, if when contaminated the impact it has on our health and environment. This led to me to finding like minded partners and to set up a trust to safe guard marginal farmers, home gardeners, state institutes by providing access to open pollinated organic vegetable seeds.
Farming is no rocket science, with no science background, nor an agricultural degree...the underlying driving force is my deep love and reverence for nature, search for knowledge and a concern for justice. By taking charge of my food and not leaving it to the dictates of private companies, I reap the abundant rewards of nature. Thereby, raising awareness to schools, spiritual centres, corporates, hotels, hospitals and more via my campaign "My Right to Safe Food" launched earlier this year.
The law of abundance certainly works whilst giving, you receive manifold!
