Since July, IndiaSpend has been publishing stories looking at what the push towards #NaturalFarming means on the ground for the farmers who grow our food. Its been an enlightening series for me. Here's why:
.@haripaliath's explainer told me the difference btwn #organicfarming & natural farming in theory. We realised in subsequent reporting that often, the concepts were not clear on the ground, & that organic farming was more common…
.@ManuMoudgil's story & the great video with it, gives a very simple explanation of why India's food bowl & its star performer in the green revolution finds it so hard to move away from chemicals--government incentives & the chemical-hardened soil…

सिक्किम का एक खास राजनीतिक अतीत है जिसमें कई महत्वपूर्ण एवं रोचक घटनाएं शामिल हैं।
2.अगर उत्तर पूर्वी राज्यों को 7 Sisters की उपाधि दी गई है तो सिक्किम को भी उन सबका भाई मानना गलत नहीं होगा। भौगोलिक स्थिति को समझें तो भारत का उत्तर-पूर्वी हिस्सा सामरिक और रणनीतिक रूप से देश का एक महत्वपूर्ण अंग है।
3.इसे हिंदुस्तान का दुर्भाग्य कहो या कुछ और, लेकिन हमें किसी स्थान का सामरिक और रणनीतिक महत्व उसके खोने के बाद ही चलता है। जैसे लद्दाख UT में अक्साई चीन और गिलगित बाल्टिस्तान को खोने के बाद ही हमें यह अहसास हुआ कि यह सिर्फ वो जमीन का टुकड़ा नहीं है जहाँ घास भी नहीं उगती।

Part Two: a glimpse of what an organic farm entails
The fertility you bring in the soil is important. This can be done at the lowest cost to keep your profit up. You could get HEAPS of wood chips from arborists for a good fungal rich compost and the carbon they contain. Great carbon source
The second HEAP you can expect is i.e chicken manure for compost. The Heap will stink 🤣. So the chicken heap allows for your nitrogen source. Both HEAPS together could give you a great compost. Basically ensure your soil invites the right microbes.

#AatmaNirbharBharat does not imply isolationism or becoming exclusionist. We’ll build capacities, skill people and compete globally acquiring strengths. We’ll build the #Local. After all, every global brand began with their #Local strength. We shall integrate with GVCs.
