new GM booklet in Tamizh!

see here:
This is a tamil version of the "Iam no Lab Rat" GM booklet in English!
Recently we had a 3 day workshop in the Gandhigram universtity, where the farming, origin of organic farming, policies and politics behind farming, the economics and skewed markets, the harsh realities, the livelihood aspects, sustainable farming, different schools of thoughts and the various idea(l)s to take it forward were discussed..many interested volunteers (young and old) had come and it was an intense 3 days where every one felt energised and were charged to contribute for this cause..
It was a a great time in a nice serene campus and Tharcharbu Iyakkam (translates as Self Reliance Movement)was born out there. we hope lots of activities will fill our calendars and this will go on to create the atmosphere of sustainable agriculture and right to safe food that we all dream and advocate.

Remember this name- Tharcharbu Iyakkam : it is gonna create waves and ofcourse bring about a great change in the way we see agriculture today and also bring in more people back to the land and agriculture.

Tharcharbu Iyakkam valarga!!
