From the place of pilgrimage to the harmful effects of Western technologies

This month’s newsletter brings you another beautiful signage which we have erected near Agni Teertham as part of ‘Green Rameshwaram’ initiative. The signage quotes Swami Vivekananda’s visit to Rameshwaram - “The very dust of this land has become holy to me; the very air is now to me holy; it is now the holy land, the place of pilgrimage, the teertha”.
In our happenings section, we have various training programmes mainly on Fish Amino technology, which were sponsored by NRDC, New Delhi, Holistic health, Renewable energy sources, etc. In addition, as a part of Social Engineering, we have series of networking activities. In the ‘Green Rameshwaram’ project, we have highlighted Prize distribution programme on Rangoli competition, Awareness programmes and Renovation of Papavinashaka Teertham. This month onwards we are going to have a separate newsletter for “Green Rameshwaram” project which you will receive in the coming days.
In the wisdom section, we have Dr.Vandana Shiva co-relating Limits of Nature and Development, Claude Alvares on Arrogance of Science and its effects on indigenous Indians and Otto Ullrich boldly informs us about the Harmful effects of Western technologies.
