Converted into a Heaven

By Aleem Faizee

Anne Godfrey at TAPOVAN

Reports say an estimated 10,000 coffee trees in Sehlum, Tamil Nadu are cut and burnt every year due to infections and the farmers in Peru, South America are abandoning their farms because of poor cultivation.


But Sehlum and Peru are not exceptions, farmers world over are facing the same debacle and despite dumping lots of money in Chemicals and the fertilizers they fail to get the desired results. Worst, enormous use of chemicals, many times, instead of increasing the fertility of their lands, is converting them into a dead desert. Tired of heavy losses, while farmers in India are committing suicides, the farmers in South America are forced to abandon their farms and search for an alternate mean in the cities for living.


Agnihotra, a simple healing fire from the ancient science of Ayurveda, is a process of purifying the atmosphere through a specially prepared fire. It involves preparing a small fire with dried cow-dung in a copper pyramid of fixed size and putting some grains of rice and ghee into the fire exactly at sunrise and sunset. In Homa Organic Farming this Agnihotra ash/water solution is used as a foliar spray instead of chemicals as repellent.

The alarming conditions everywhere indeed, but before India could do anything; Government of Peru decided to try Ancient Indian Homa Organic Farming and was surprised to see the miraculous results. Elated, Government of Peru campaigned extensively to promote the technique in its territory and is now at number one position in the world in using this Indian Technique.


For Bruce Johnson and Anne Godfrey of Australia, who had personally experienced the healing effects of the Homa Therapy, it was surprising that while people world over are benefiting from Homa Therapy and Homa Organic Farming; farmers in India continue to commit suicide.


Bruce observed, “How can India be shining when the farmers here are dying?” and in order to demonstrate the astonishing results of the low-cost and low-risk technique to Indian farmers, Bruce, along with his wife, decided to migrate to India. They started working on an almost infertile 15-hectare land in a barren region near Parola in Jalgaon district, lovingly named “the desert” as Tapovan, constructed mud-houses for dwelling, set water harvesting and natural air-conditioning system for soothing and mastered the local women in embroidery for living.


“And during the past 10 years of our stay here”, Anne disclosed, “ The dry, rocky, depleted soil in Tapovan has blossomed into an oasis of fruit, nut and flower trees, Ayurvedic herbs, eastern and western culinary herbs, vegetables, grains and pulses, all without using chemical pesticides or fertilizers.” Sanjay Patil, the manager who is working with the couple since long, agrees with the miraculous growth rate of the plants while using this technique.


With the incredible results there for everyone to see, more and more people are now inclined towards using this technique and the generous couple, along with other volunteers, is offering free assistance to them. But the man benefiting the most is the farm owner exactly opposite to Tapovan, without much efforts, his farm is now yielding more.

Sare Jahan Se Accha

Hindustan Hamara

In 1905 more than 100 years from today, when Iqbal was a lecturer at the Government College, Lahore he was invited by his student Lala Hardayal to preside over a function. Instead of making a speech, Iqbal sang Sare Jahan Se Accha Hindustan Hamara in his style. Iqbal compiled this poem in praise of India and the poem preaches the communal harmony that had unfortunately started ceasing in India by that time. Each and every word in this poem depicts an Indian’s respect and love for the motherland and the values the Indian society inherited for long...Read Full
