Transparency to go through a meaningful path.

Transparency to go through a meaningful path

kantilata

                    The people of this era are more intelligent ,dynamic and enthusiastic beyond the limit.Everyday is going like a river which has never learnt to stop.People are rushing here and there  just because of the hope that ,tomorrow”s  raising sun will definitely brings something new in them.Everyone works for own benefit.But,inspite of the fact that people do work ,they work hard ,they must have transparency or clarity where thy are going .There is a great saying that”if opportunity doesn’t knock you,build the door.It’s not easy to get name,fame.All the people who are popular in this world is just because they have different philosophy of living life.They have seen life with different eye.

In life there comes a point ,where we realise everything and looking backward there comes a smile in our lips .One day,we all realise those ups and down those mistakes…

The Sustainable Development Goals: MESHing with the Environment

Sustainable Development Goals

THE GFAR BLOG

ResizedImage600309-SDGs-1

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), agreed to in 2015, address issues of human well-being.  SDG 15 is titled “Life on land” and its aim is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems.  This goal calls for the sustainable management of forests, the combat of desertification, the halting and reversing of land degradation and the halting of biodiversity loss. 

Although SDG 15 is about land and environmental impacts, really each of the SDGs can be influenced by environmental issues. Since the beginning of humankind, people’s well-being has been inextricably linked to the environment. Actions that affect the environment can thus affect the different SDG targets, from poverty to hunger to clean energy.

When countries plan to take action, especially developmental actions, that impact on the environment, they must often estimate the extent of the impact. Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) are becoming common place, and although social implications are taken into consideration within EIAs, the calculation of social impacts, especially those…

A One Day Excursion of MAPs

Things I hear, I forget, I see, I remember, I do, I understand. Education system in our context doesn’t seem to be advancing in this direction. I often refer this system as putting cart before the horse. Revolution is paving its path and we are being the front lines.  Here I proudly mention the one-day excursion that we had on Medicinal and Aromatic Plants (MAPs).

Our motive was clear as we were agriculture students who are responsible for production, management, processing and marketing of plants and its product. This time it was herbal crops. Our 1st destination Bishnu Ayurved Hernal production farm in Dharampur, Chitwan. Plants like Kalo Tulsi, Aavijalo, Kurilo, Sarpagandha, gurjo, Kamini, etc are produced and marketed. These farmers are facing the problem of proper marketing and government policy. Here, we not only understand the importance and management of herbal plants but also knew that the herbal and aromatic plants can turn to be a milestone in nation’s economy and development.

Our next destination was District Ayurvedic Health Centre in Tandi, Chitwan which took government services for granted. I would never choose these facilities over sophisticated hospitals. But I must admit, now I have a soft corner for the services; credit to the visit. Talking about the ayurvedic health centre, it provides every treatment and facilities that you would except from an ayurvedic health centre. Here, we were acquainted with the medicinal plants, preparation and processing of medicine.

Then, we went to Yogi Ramdev Yoga and Naturopathy Hospital in Devghat, Chitwan. Here we learned different beneficial aspects of Yoga. Yoga is the exercise of brain, body and soul. Yoga keeps our body ready for any consequences. We also learned about the five stages of psychology namely Mood, Kshibta, Bikshibta, Aekagra and Nirudha. We were told about the five condition where psychology could be changed namely Pramarn, Biparya, Bikalpa, Nindra and Ishmriti. We also learned about the types of Yoga and major practices under yoga. We also observed various types of Treatment machines such as Infraforential Therapy, Ultrasound Excerciser, Shoulder Exerciser, Acupuncture, and Traction. These things we learned and had 1st hand experience.

Things I learned personally will remain with me for my lifetime. So, I would like to thank all those who helped me to make this trip a fruitful and worthy. We expect more of this type of excursion in near future.

 

YAP Proposal #220: Integrated Organic Farming (Kiran Timilsina, Nepal)

THE GFAR BLOG

crops grown

I see an agribusiness that is profitable, healthy, and environmentally friendly. My motives are for developing ecopreneurship and organopreneurship along with agripreneurship.

I am Kiran Timilsina, a self-motivated visionary young man of 21, from Kaskikot, a rural place in Nepal situated 8 km west of Pokhara. I am doing my bachelor’s degree at the Faculty of Agriculture at the Agriculture and Forestry University, Rampur, Chitwan.

I have dreamt for a project that is profitable, healthy, and environment amicable. The only realistic prospect for my dream is doing agribusiness that can fulfil all these three objectives. For this, I, along with my family, am producing organic products on our land for two years.

Here in Nepal, today’s agriculture in the name of high production is flooded with chemical fertilizers and pesticides that are not only degrading soil health but also human health and sustainable production.

This problem is now becoming more…
