The Great Agricultural Challenge


  • Release Date 01/2009
  • Printed Pages 118

Bhaskar Save is one of the founder fathers of the organic farming movement in India – a rapidly growing movement that will hopefully overtake and eventually release the nation from the disastrous modern scientific practices propounded by Dr. M.S. Swaminathan, father of the Green Revolution. Following the spate of farmers’ suicides, Bhaskar Save wrote a series of open letters to Swaminathan which turns out to be a devastating critique of the governemnt’s agricultural policy and an eloquent plea for urgent fundamental re-orientation.This book brings together the whole fascinating record of the correspondence and annexures. A must for anyone interested in healthy living.
