It was a lazy afternoon of Tuesday 19th April when I planned to go to the studio of K24 in Nairobi. It was preceded by an interview at Q FM radio in the morning.
The topic was only about vegetable farming as it was a short interview focusing on promoting various business ventures in small cities of Kenya.
The anchor went straight to the main topic and asked me relevant questions about how vegetarianism can help farmers and others.
You may watch interview here.
It was truly a pleasure to remain present at the closing ceremony of Jain Youth League Thika on Thursday last week.
The team recognised doctors for their contribution to the society and their service to so many patients. Many of them had recieved the sight after more than three decades.
It was a monent of pride and satisfaction to know that more than eight hundred people recieved free treatment for eyes and other ENT related problems.
It was a very early morning for me to start my day for this interview. After going through the initial discussion about the topic with anchor, we went on air.
I must appreciate the smartness and the study anchor did about the vegetarianism. He asked me very relevant questions and the flow of interview was just perfect.
The interview went on for 40 minutes and we could cover most of the area about vegetarianism, vegetable farming, tree planting, health and wellness.
It was truly a pleasure to meet a legend sain Amma in Nairobi on Sunday. As I entered Oshwal hall on sunday, I felt that the air was filled with a vibration of mysticism and positiveness.
After few devotional songs and prayers got a chance to meet her and also got her blessings.
Thanks to Manish Shah who invited me to the event.
There was a live demonstration of how quality seeds can earn better yields for farmers by a seed company near Ahero on Friday 8th April.
It was quite a learning experience for me to find out about such company which can identify the soil and its quality and recommend the seeds accordingly. This has a direct impact on the lives of farmers who have been experimenting with many crops and have failed due to lack of knowledge. Ultimately these farmers give up farming and become jobless.
After understanding the quality and how the seeds are grown organically I cultivated many iseas to take forward my vegetarian club to the next level.
It was a learning experience to be part of the Eye and ENT camp arranged by Shree Jain Yough League of Thika in Kisumu county in this week from Monday till Thursday. Though I didn’t do much to help them but I observed quite a few interesting things from the camp about the patients’ registration, marketing the details of camp, logistics of the camp etc. It was worth spending four days in different locations for few hours.
The camp was conducted in four completely different locations around Kisumu; first day was at Ngere Primary school in Ahero, second was Konditi School at Peponditi, third was at Wagai primary school in Yala and forth was Jalaram School in Kisumu central.
Dr. S.K. Savla was leading the camp with eight doctors from India; he has been coming to Kenya for last 37 years in April to serve the local community for the eyes related problems specially cataract.
The very able team screened around 3900 patients for eyes related problems and 2300 ENT patients were checked. At the end of the camp, they found 265 people for cataract problem and 60 for ENT related who were to transported to Thika for further treatment.
It was truly pleasure to know Dr. Savla who has been so dedicated to this camp for last many years. His wife was equally passionate about helping Doctor in his work. I should appreciate the doctors who joined the team without expecting anything in return.
I was bit excited to go back to the farm where we had donated some seeds near Kisumu International airport with the team of media.
The farmers were excited to share their experiences and how the new crops are coming along. Though it is a small beginning of the vegetable farming in this region, it is still impactful as it has drawn some attention of people.
