“Milking the environment is Hindu life style not killing in the name of development. Keeping this in view, it is time to reconnect our society towards organic farming for healthy and prosperous nation,” said Sri Kacham Ramesh, Madhyakshetra Boudhik Pramukh of RSS, on the occasion of “Farmers Day” celebrations organised by Bhartiya Kisan Sangh Telangana in Hyderabad on 11th September, 2016.
On this occasion, 30 farmers who are practicing complete organic farming methods and having not less than 6 cows were felicitated by organisers. In this, six of them were young farmers who left their lucrative software jobs and became proud professional farmers. Over 500 farmers coming across the Telangana state attended this event.
Ramesh ji added that when rest of the world was struggling with healthy food culture, Indians were following the farming methods quoted in RigVeda for centuries. Farming is the best profession and people adopting organic farming in this technological era are highly respected.
Sri Praveen Rao, the vice-chancellor of Acharya Jayashankar Agriculture University, said, “Doubling the farmers income is our objective and we are putting all efforts in this direction as per the guidelines given by central government.”
“By organic farming, farmers can completely avoid the risk of fake seeds and excessive chemicals usage that impacts the fertility of soil and food products,” he added.
Sri Paryada Anji Reddy, president of Bharatiya Kisan Sangh Telangana state, said “It is our duty to protect our healthy food habits and pass them to next generation. Farmers Day celebrations are aimed at restoring the respect to the farming profession and recollect the rich Hindu farming culture”.
