Bhaskar Save, the Gandhi of Natural Farming

On the 27th January, 2014, Bhaskar Save – the acclaimed ‘Gandhi of Natural Farming’ – completes 92 years. He has inspired and mentored 3 generations of organic farmers. 

In 1997, Masanobu Fukuoka, the legendary Japanese natural farmer, visited Save’s farm. He described it as “the best in the world,” even better than his own farm.
Indeed, Save’s farm is a veritable food forest; and a net supplier of water, energy and fertility to the local eco-system, rather than a net consumer.

A visit to Center for Development / Kadam Education Initiative projects

Girls at KEI's Juhapura office spending time on computers. Most of these children are orphans or have only a single parent...Umang Kumar, an AID volunteer in Boston, writes about his visit to the Kadam Educational Initiative projects in Ahmedabad.

To
Mamata Banerjee
Chief Minister, West Bengal


We, the undersigned, condemn the rape and murder of the 16 year old girl from Madhyamgram, West Bengal. We further condemn the complete inability of the state administration to protect her after she filed a police complaint on Oct 26th, 2013, which resulted in her being abducted and raped again by the friends of the original assailants. On Dec 23rd the girl was set on fire in her house allegedly by the rapists and she succumbed to her burns on Dec 30.Subsequently, in a cover-up effort, police attempted in shameful manner to seize and cremate her body without her family’s permission which we unequivocally condemn and protest as well.
