I For India by Mr.Karan Khanna

"I For India will be close to every Indian's heart because each can in some way identify with Karan Sehgal.. each holds the same dream.. opening possibilities.. hope and belief.. there is so much more one can say about the book, since it voices our own thoughts.. and this is the resultant continuum.. this will be the secret of it's success..:) the book is a magical meld of eastern values and youthful struggle between fun, zest and responsibilities.. it's heartening to perceive a future that holds hope in such a generation.. a generation that we tend to dismiss as irresponsible, unfocused, and immature.. "

Holy Basil

Recently there was an article in TOI about planting Tulsi to save Taj Mahal.. According to this article, Tulsi or Holy Basil is known for its anti oxidation, anti pollutant and air purifying properties. For centuries Indians have worshipped the Holy Basil, having a tulsi plant outside every house, and experience tells us that most of our old customs though followed by rote and thus losing their meaning.. always had a very practical reason behind them.

This is a request to the members of Basant and eventually the whole of Cuffe Parade.. if every flat of every building had Tulsi growing outside, can you imagine the health benefits this could entail.. for apart from fighting pollution and warding off insects, Tulsi taken in many forms is also beneficial for health.

Container Gardening

Children and youth are the future, not just of gardening, but of life itself. Gardening benefits kids' health and well-being, their attitudes towards learning and the environment, their connections to community, and so much more.

Container gardening is a perfect way to get children involved in something other than video games and television. They will learn how to take a single seed and grow a beautiful flower, herb or vegetable. By planting and caring for their container garden, they will become aware of all living things around them, not only the plants in their containers. Children will also learn responsibility in caring for the container gardens.

Along with the fun of getting dirty, gardening helps children learn valuable lessons about patience as they wait for vegetables to grow, and most important, They learn about nurturing a life and what it takes to keep something alive.

Gardening should be encouraged at all school levels, since nothing can be more therapeutic, the stress levels and our fears towards the environment notwithstanding. I hope We can make this happen by example.. and hold a container gardening session for the children of Basant to tend by themselves.
