Dr. GBK Says, it is the mankind who damaged the ecology for their greediest aspirations in the guise of development and the ultra-modern lifestyles. It is our Responsibility to conserve the ecology by planting more trees, habituating vedic food (harithaahaaram) viz. Millets, Pulses, Herbal Decoctions and Palm jaggeryinstead of unhealthy Rice, Wheat and Sugar cane which consume more water and contribute to the ecological imbalance. Due to excess and unprofessional usage of chemical pesticides and fertilizers the soil is contaminated with the particles of arsenic, led, mercury which are hazardous to health. It was also stressed that Telangana farmers are using 185 kgs of chemical fertilizers per acre as against the national average of 52.1 kgs per acre. This is 261% above to the national average consumption of chemical fertilizers. The soil pollution is the root cause for pollution of five elements and the environment as well. COVID-19 is only a starting and hundreds of such viruses are going to erupt. The Only answer to face these challenges is to practice Indian vedic food culture and cowbased natural farming.Governor also expressed her serious concern on the conscious ignorance of our traditional culture and heritage of the land where the human being used to lead a holistic lifestyle being in conjunction with the Nature. She called upon the people to go back to our traditional (vedic sources) food culture viz. Millets, Herbal decoctions, cold press oils, palm Jaggery, cold press oils etc. One can save 60 lakhs liters of water per person per annum if we shift from Rice, wheat and sugar cane to Vedic foodculture thereby ensuring the ecological balance.
Governor appreciated the efforts of PRAGTI which has been promoting and propagating the importance of development of greenery and Biodiversity for the very survival of the mankind on the planet Earth.She appealed that it is everybody’s responsibility to promote holistic food habits to save our mother earth and also to drive the mankind towards holistic lifestyle for a purposeful life with full of content.India has been the mother of all cultures, traditions and customs associated with science. Rishi sanskriti, vedas, Upanishads and epics are our sacred wealth. Rishi sanskriti has been a direction to the mankind. Our vedas and epics taught the mankind how to lead a holistic life in conjunction with nature. All spices of Indian kitchen – black cardamom, black pepper, black cumin, cinnamon, bay leaf, cloves, coriander, curry tree leaves, fenugreek leaf, garlic, ginger, dalchini, garam masala ( 8+ spices), mustard seed, nutmeg, turmeric etc., have been the wall of immunity for Indians.This is right time to start spreading the needed awareness on the importance of ‘Vedic way of living’ to practice for the very survival of all the living beings and the Planet. It is the need of the Hour to embrace our Vedic Way of Living to lead a Holistic Life Style to protect ourselves and the nature.During the session Dr. GBK urged upon the Governor to impress upon the Government of Telangna to promote cow-based natural farming; decentralization of Vertical metros spreading them into suburbs for horizontal development of cities for ensuring the quality of healthy living of the people.He also expressed the growing need to arrest the migration from jungles to concrete jungles to arrest the rapid urbanization. These concrete jungles are the root causes for deadly viruses and the deteriorated qualityof environment viz. five elements.
