Reaping a rich harvest 26.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Shankaregowda, a farmer from Devagalli near Mysuru, has shown that a farmer can make a good living through farming. His success is attributed to a variety of factors such as organic farming, crop diversity and non-dependence on external inputs, including seeds. He has a four-acre farm, of which three acres are irrigated with the help of a borewell and the rest is rainfed. Earlier, he was practising conventional farming. He realised the significance of organic farming after attending various awareness sessions conducted by various State departments and nonprofit organisations. Once he understood the basics of non-chemical farming, he gradually incorporated the eco-friendly methods. As the first step towards eco-friendly farming he increased the crop diversity with stress on both perennial and annual crops. Thus he grows coconut, banana, mango, lime, vegetables, greens, millets, pulses, ginger, turmeric, etc. He also grows silver oak, teak and melia trees. He has found that crop diversity ...

The magic grain 23.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Millets are the oldest and one of the most important cereals consumed around the world. However, traditional dishes prepared from millets are fast disappearing from our kitchens. Today, there is lack of awareness about the high nutritional value and health benefits of millets such as jowar (sorghum), bajra (pearl millet), ragi (finger millet), harka (kodo millet), baragu (proso millet), navane (foxtail millet), samai (little millet) and barnyard millet. Rich in fibre, millets make for a filling meal, as they slow down digestion and keep the stomach full for a longer period of time. This also prevents one from overeating, and millets are therefore ideal for weight-loss. Millet oil is also a good source of linoleic acid and tocopherols. Since they are gluten-free and non-allergic, millets are safe for children and adults suffering from gluten allergy and celiac disease. The incidence of diabetes and gastrointestinal disorders are less among those who consume millets. It eliminates problems such as ...

Let's take it slow... 10.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Harried, exhausted, overworked, overwhelmed. Words that we frequently use to describe our state of mind and being, as we race through life juggling responsibilities, meeting deadlines and keeping commitments. In a bid to do more, we find ourselves cutting back on precious sleep, succumbing to the convenience of junk and processed foods, and surrendering to our smartphones helplessly. As Carl Honoré, an internationally acclaimed author and speaker very aptly puts it, "We've become obsessed with squeezing every last drop of productivity out of our time." Because of which everything suffers, "our diet and health, our work, relationships, the community, and our environment." Honoré also says, "There's something profoundly unsatisfying about a life in a hurry." That's why the Slow Movement, a global trend in favour of slowing down, is steadily gaining momentum, and is now making its presence felt in India. About approach No, it's not about slowing things down to a crawl. "The Slow Movement is ...
