one oganic mela to another

There was a call from one Professor in K.S. Rangasamy College of Technology, Tiruchengode asking restore to participate in their organic mela.. what? organic mela in some remote town?? hmm..when i probed more, i was told some 20000 students and 2000 staff live out of that huge campus! They had planned an organic mela inviting 100s of organic farmers, organic shops and others..They had planned a big organic food mela- many traditional recipes esp out of millets; many stalls displaying organic produce and selling too; many talks and seminars involving many stalwarts from organic movement.

Very laudable indeed. ofcourse I rushed out there just after our Organic mela at Chennai. I was happy to be there. The enthusiasm of the students was fantastic. The efforts behind were clearly visible. I was told that the students had moved all over Tamil nadu to arrange the full range of organic produce including fruits to help put their juice stalls, millets to showcase the various recipes and so on..
Hats off to the whole team! the college and their management too for their interest and infrastructure.

Its a great achievement am sure and I do wish they continue this effort every year..and that it grows in stature and popularity.
Kudos to Prof. Guruswamy, the college and all the students!
