Calls for adopting organic farming and setting up of Panchgavya-based industries
Bassar-Akbarpur, December 23. Kamdhenu Gowdham, a leading research institute for conservation and promotion of indigenous cow breeds, on Sunday organised the monthly Hawan programme.
Greeting distinguished guests, Chief Patron Shri S.P. Gupta, IAS (Retd) stressed the need for production of various cow products and adopting organic farming for prosperity in rural areas. He said that rearing of cow could go long way in ensuring employment.
“In the last six years, Kamdhenu Gowdham has achieved unexpected success. We are now working on starting a panchkarma chikitsalaya and Vanprastha ashram within the Gowdham premise. It will have all the necessary facilities,” Shri Gupta informed the guests and audience.
Speaking on the auspicious occasion, Shri Khemchand Sharma, senior Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader said that falling cow population is a matter of concern now and advised the government to bring policies that addresses the issue. Shri Sharma said that cow is central to India’s economy and hence needs special attention of policy-makers to promote Panchgavya-based industry.
Shri Jai Prakash Garg, national vice-president, VHP noted that cow could be main source of a farmer’s income.
Shri Arun Kumar Bansal, former co-convener (Udyog Prakostha), BJP suggested that government should encourage setting up of Panchgavya-based industry in each village. He advocated for increasing the scale of dairy in rural areas so that each cow product could be commercially used.
Kamdhenu Gowdham also held a discussion on animal sacrifice and reiterated that no society sanctions it as it is a social evil.
Swami Yog Bhushan, founder Dharmyog Foundation, called for complete ban of animal slaughter in the country. He sought people’s participation in curbing animal killing.
“Animals continue to be sacrificed in states like Chhattisgarh, Uttarakhand and Rajasthan. They should be immediately stopped. The law prohibiting animal killing should be strictly implemented,” Shri Yog Bhushan said.
All the distinguished guests listed out the medicinal value of cow products and how they could help cure serious ailments related to kidney, liver and other organs.
Kamdhenu Gowdham chairperson Smt. Shashi Gupta advised everybody present on the occasion to use gauark every day to keep diseases away.
