I was down and out. Depression and  work took a heavy toll on my physical and mental conditions. Deadlines were not met and hindrance in tasks added on to the misery. I started wading through motivational quotes with out much upshot. Conversations with my Mom over phone was the only solace. What should I do? I have to stay strong. Otherwise it will affect the morale of my team. I used to park my car behind a shopping mall and walk to my office. The mall was always crowded and buzzed with activities. One day I have seen a woman in her sixties, but not skinny begging in front of the mall. She was not like other spongers. She wore a beautiful smile which was innocent and positive. Her wrinkles were evident, but failed to demean the beautiful smile. The sari worn by her was torn in places. She was holding a stick for support along with a satchel damaged beyond recognition. The Satchel was kept tight to her body as if, some important artifacts were present inside.

She came infront of me and given that  delightful smile. But I was least bothered, since my mind was hovering with thoughts of impending issues. It continued for almost  a week and she has consistently given me the same smile in the same fashion. I have finally given her some amount.

I have asked her out of curiosity " Why are you begging here? Where are your children? ". She said " I am from a remote village in Karnataka.I was a house wife and possessed a good stretch of agricultural land. My husband passed away when my son was 15. I looked after my son from the agricultural income. I lived for him." I became inquisitive now and asked " Where is your son now?". She said " He is married and I pray for a happy family life for him".

The incident narrated was like this. She took care of her son from the income generated out of their agricultural land. She relinquished her youth, energy and comfort for her son. He was good in studies and put down roots at Mangalore. One day he went to his home town and convinced her for a trip to Bangalore. She was very excited and happy because her son was taking her to a city which she hasn't explored. She never gone out of her village. They have reached Bangalore early morning by bus and alighted in Majestic bus stand. He told her to stay in the bus platform, so that he can go and get a taxi for the ride. She agreed. Hours gone by and the  son who has gone to get the taxi never came back. She was tensed with the thought that something terrible happened to him. His phone was switched off. She ran outside the bus stand in shock and tension, searching for him. She decided to stay in Bangalore to search for him and vouched not to return home town till she finds him. She later understood that she was dumped by her son, since he felt her as a liability and an obstacle to the earlier possession of ancestral property. She was devastated and was in a state of shock for some days. She was admitted in a hospital because of starvation and high blood pressure by some good Samaritans. Once out of the hospital she started begging for a living and started staying in a dilapidated room near to a petrol bunk. I was shocked and asked her " why can't you go back to your home town?" She told me that she is happy with the life here and there is no point in going back since her most valuable possession, her son, shunted her out of his heart. "Whom should I live for" ? This question has gone deep in to my mind. If you don't have some one to live for, there is no point in doing all these. But I salute her for that unwavering smile irrespective of the plight.

It was a time for self realization for me. Why the hell am I demotivated? I am surrounded by my ever loving parents and family, who never left me at the time of misery. This lady wears a smile after all the mishaps in her life and kept her life simple. What will happen if some of the deadlines are not met? Let's try for it again with a smile. Our loved ones are with us. Our kid's or wife's smile can be a huge motivator. Many of the people stay and fight their life away from their home town with some goals in mind. So there is no point in getting demotivated. Motivation is a mindset and not a situation. When your parents/ wife/ kids stand with you,that will be the biggest motivating factor. Forget all the motivational speeches and stories about attitude and confidence. Your family and loved ones are your attitude,confidence and success. But still the big question haunts me " How she is smiling so innocently, after deeply dented by her son?"The main one being " How is she motivated?" She may be motivated in her troubled life, because of her Son's smile. But his act was very cruel for whatever reasons. But this mother don't want to go back to him now.

Any ways, she is still smiling every day and I am amazingly motivated!!!!!

Ever Motivated

Rebellion of a 'Park Bench"

My creators were two legged, highly intelligent, but complicated species called human beings. I was born on a  hot day with so much water spilled over my body continuously for almost a week. The water was a relief to my body, which was scorching with high temperature. I was not able to move or speak but my listening skill was exceptional, which developed over a period of time. My legs were fixed on a green patch called 'PARK' with a lake in the vanguard. "How this lake can be peaceful irrespective of its size?" I was perplexed. But I have observed that the lake was loosing his charm with its size reduced to half  in some time, from the date of my birth.The chirping birds and the rain which used to come every year became a dream for me. I like to get soaked in rain rather than dust. I like to listen the music of birds, rather than the shrill sound of lifeless smoke emitting creatures called 'Auto mobiles'. But nothing has happened, apart from soaring temperature, which burned my body accelerating me to dotage.

I hearkened to numerous human conversations and activities.The incidents never enlightened, but confused me to a greater extent. A couple used to sit on me and conversed about some emotion called 'love' for a longer time.The boy used to come in a creature called 'bike', but he was very energetic.The girl came early, every evening before his arrival.I was very happy with these people seeing their love and passion towards each other.They were planning to do something called 'marriage', which is treated divine by the humans.Their little fights,romance and attachment towards each other was the highlights.But after a while, the girl used to come alone and it continued as a routine. There was no sign of the boy. Her eyes were wet and it overflowed to my body, but lesser than the quantity of  rain water. The stomach of the girl was bigger in size leading to an asymmetrical body shape. She used to look at the empty space next to her and stroke the stomach.It continued for 3 months,but she never spoke. I never met her after that. A year later the same boy came with a different girl and started speaking in the same way as earlier. They came every day morning with my confusion bulged out. "Whether the change in stomach changed the appearance of the girl?". " Why the boy is coming with a different girl?" "What happened to the first girl?"  "How the boy can strike the same conversation with the new one also?" I wanted to question him,but in vein.

My body was tickled with the compassionate touch of  shrubs grown out of the weak spots in my legs.They swayed in the air gently, creating continuous vibrations in my body, like a baby playing in the lap of his mother. Birds used to discharge some white substance on my body, which has created scars all over the body. I loved kids and their activities. They played on me and their smile was the most beautiful thing I ever witnessed from the day of my existence.

Hey, I forgot to tell about my custodian. He guards the park and other benches including me. He was skinny, always in the effect of a liquid, called 'alcohol' packed in bewitching bottles.These bottles were always kept on me and the smell of that liquid was intolerable.But this person was very happy to guzzle this on a consistent basis.He drowsed on me with out any sense of the world and biting mosquitoes. I have suffered his stench and weight all through the night.

Meanwhile the lake and  greenery in front of me started transforming in to a piece of sand pile. This was mainly because of a group of people, who were digging out sand from the lake every night. The cold breeze from lake has changed in to hot wind, even in the night, piercing my body and destroyed the vegetation nearby. I haven't seen the chirping birds, apart from that black ugly birds called 'crows' with their reverberating sound. I waited impatiently for some one to cease the destruction of my friend. One day a gentleman wearing white colour dress arrived along with 10-12 human beings. His proposals and objectives for saving my friend were superlative. They camped in front of the lake and they displayed posters and banners equipped with an instrument called 'loudspeaker',  which allowed me to listen to his speech. I was very happy with the thought that this person was acting as per my thoughts. While he was delivering the speech, people used to discuss about the boon of the initiative sitting on me. One day a group of people in unique dress called 'police' came in an old auto mobile. They smacked these people with their cane, destroyed their camp and thrown their posters in the river. They took this good person in their auto mobile, which produced a shrill crow-like sound. I was  dejected. But the very next day,he came back and restarted his activities. But he disappeared after 4-5 days and a big auto mobile started depositing more soil on the body of  lake,who was drawing his last breath.

A very huge structure called 'Apartment' replaced the beautiful river after some time, with so many vehicles going inside the same on a daily basis. I was again confused with the following questions. "Where is that good person?" "What is this apartment doing on the body of lake?". The number of visitors in the park exponentially increased because of that monster apartment. My body was restless hosting the overflowing crowd .One day,I have seen that good person coming out of the apartment for my surprise. He was wearing the same dress, which he used to wear earlier,during his verbal jugglery. I used to see him on a daily basis going inside and coming outside the apartment in his car during morning and evening.My mind has gone to a fit of rage because, he is staying in the apartment which is on the body of the lake, which he was fighting for. "What the hell is this?"

An evening this person came to the park in the company of his kid. He sat on me along with his kid. He told the boy that there was a lake here and human beings have ruined the same. I fumed with anger. "How can this person be such a fabricator?". "Why he has not continued with his initiative?". "What happened to his ideas?". "Why he is staying in that apartment?". This time I wanted to question him at any cost. I tried moving my legs with all my might.I started shaking.The man and the kid jumped out of me and called my caretaker.He yelled at the watchman saying that "This cement bench is weak and its shaking", "why are you not asking your concerned to replace this idiotic bench?". "If any body get hurt,I will sue you". What mistake I have done? I wanted to question this fraudster and he is saying that I am weak. I am not weak, he is weak. He couldn't even stood by his words for reason best known to him. I should have questioned all those human beings, who confused me. This cogitation has pushed me to move my leg again. I lost my balance and fallen down. I was unconscious for a while. When I opened my eyes, the leaves of the plants were patting my back,as if they were acknowledging my effort. I was able to see the things on my back side for the first time,since I have fallen downwards facing the back now. The entire park was dilapidated with battered trees and dried out shrubs. I was distressed. Many of the Park benches were old and handicapped. They were looking at me sympathetically. I have been tagged fragile and lost my balance, as soon as I raised my voice.

A dozen of human beings arrived after some time, with a hard tool called 'hammer' and started pounding my body. I was inflicted with highest degree of pain and my body started crumbling.They have broken my leg and each body part in to smaller pieces. Oh God!!! Darkness rushing to my eyes. My watchman was sitting on a separated body piece of mine and drinking 'alcohol' along with those guys.I can't see the kids and  lake again.How will I tell human beings about that boy who comes with different girls? How will I console that girl? How will I tell about that person who killed my friend for 'apartment' ? How will I ever see the smile of kids? I tried moving again.I can hear those human beings saying "This bench is weak, See this is still shaking. Somebody should have punctured their back sitting on this stinking bench". But I am happy, because I made an effort, but these people are inactive and waiting for their slow death. If I get a life line,I will ask questions again.The demolished pieces of  Park bench is dumped, back side of the apartment. The apartment stood tall with his head high and the park seems like a useless place in front of his might.The Park benches around us may not be weak, but trying to tell us something. But we don't have any evidence, So let's don't bother. After all its only a filthy stinking 'Park bench'supposed to be silent, lost his existence for speaking up. What was the need of a rebellion??? We are happy with what we have.

Indian Women Vs Religious Entities in India

Indian religious outfits and media,along with believers are on a roll aided with heated arguments from past few weeks about the sanctity for allowing entry of women in to the prestigious Sabarimala temple based on court observations.We have been fed with media analysis and different religious verbal jugglery from last couple of weeks.I think we have to approach this matter with sense than emotion.Religion is such a volatile issue in India,which has actually benefited the political class to cling on to power,at the time of a value crisis.Religious misunderstandings can act as a catalyst to an educated youth,which can easily trigger a chain reaction in a negative way,even now in India.

I was also confused until my father has shown me this news which has come in a Malayalam news paper about Thiruvabharanam procession from Pandalam palace to Sabarimala.

The major highlights of the news are the following.
1)Some of the royal family members of Pandalam palace are impure because of the death of a royal family member.
2)The rituals are slightly changed because of the death of the royal family member
3)There wont be any public display of Thiruvabharanam(Ornaments believed to be worn by Lord Ayyappa)
4)There will be a Pooja in the morning to deal with impurity
5)There are some detailing about the timing of all the rituals performed

The interesting aspect which has caught my attention was that even though the Thiruvabharanam tradition continues for a considerable amount of time with out any changes,the rituals changed now because of some unforeseen circumstances.So there are options  available for all type of  circumstances with the religious polymaths and clerics.All religions are doing these type of changes in rituals,at the time of unanticipated events.So the arguments suggesting the inability to change the existing traditions are not sensible

Human beings created religions,to gratify the Gods of the respective community.Gods never created any religions.We have to remember the saying that "To err is human,but to forgive is divine".Human beings have created rituals and religious laws as per their understanding and intelligence,which is not endorsed error free.Great religious scholars always proclaimed that no body can meet 100% knowledge on any subject,since one lifetime is not enough for the same.The generations acquire their knowledge from their ancestors,so that they can do further studies on the subject and take it to next level.The understanding of the persons who gains knowledge from the predecessor is very important,since there can be misinterpretations and disability to apply the same.It purely depends on the receiver's intellectual level.So we are not in a place to prove anything,only because its been a custom from ancient ages,even if we have documentary proof.The interpretations can be wrong and impractical along with metamorphosis in thought process and way of living.

We are in a democratic set up with a set of political and legal experts formulated our constitution and its prerogative based on their knowledge,and citizens of India approved the same and followed since 1947.No body will argue that in a democratic set up,Judiciary has final decision making power.But there were many changes in constitutional and judicial laws over a periods of time.I will quote an example.All Indians stood united for changing juvenile laws recently after Nirbhaya incident,even though the constitution wont allow maximum penalty to a juvenile.The constitutional law for juvenile justice started to shape up back in 1850s. The law makers made the laws as per the character and deeds of juveniles at that point of time.The lawmakers of 1850 were not able to imagine a juvenile,committing a heinous crime as done in Nirbhaya case.So the thought process and social life was absolutely opposite.We realised recently that,there is a change required in the law with out which many innocents will suffer.Don't even think that,I am comparing a heinous crime with some sacred beliefs.I just want to illustrate that none of the traditions or laws are permanent.It has to be revised as per transmutation of times,so that it will be for the benefit of humanity.

All the religions has shown their arrogance and ego,when a person questioned authenticity of their doctrines.Giordano Bruno burned to death and Galileo Galilee confined to house arrest for questioning catholic doctrines in the ancient ages.Polygamy and veiling of faces of women as per Muslim doctrines along with illogical restrictions on women formulated in ancient times,need proper corrections as per the time.Moreover all these religions formulated their laws,protocols and traditions,in a male dominated era,which wont make any sense in the current epoch.

We are in a period,where so many political and citizen uprisings are happening to implement gender equality.Human beings assigned gender,caste and religion,not gods.The traditional contradictions lies predominantly in interpretation based on intelligence level of a person.The nationals,who developed Judiciary are fighting against the same,for some religious beliefs and religions which nobody has any proof to show,apart from lame justifications.The irony is that the same people are fighting for women equality also.We have imposed the need of evidences in a Judicial system,to prove an argument in a court.People get agitated,when the same court asked for any documentary proof for banning women inside the Shrine.Whether we have any decision-making problems?

All the religions has to accept the fact that,there is a change in contemplation and way of living and religious believers should stop being stooges of political outfits and misinterpreted religious scholars.Many people defended the ban of women in Sabarimala Shrine saying that Lord Ayyappa is a celibate,but there are women who are celibate.Take the example of any religion,the brides of Gods are always the celibate women.So its not Lord Ayyappa,but our sagacity should replace emotions before jumping the guns as instructed by our religious leaders.

Almighty created human beings as one and not based on colour and gender.We have to actually serve the purpose.Religious places are for people to worship and pray their religious beliefs.God has given us brain and intelligence.You also think before proclaiming things.Moreover,Indians have a history of abolishing the unwanted for betterment of mankind.The day we think sense will be our real day of intellectual independence.

If you support woman equality,allow them in all types of religious places irrespective of religion.Even the nature is Mother nature,which we inhabit.If Motherhood is divine,the why not women?

I love my mother and the same with God also.So lets accept changes and don't overreact.All religions has to change their traditions and customs as per time cycle,otherwise these beliefs will bite the dust.There are no religions above the happiness,peace and harmony of our society.The actual success of a religion lies in imparting their believers with divine qualities like forgiveness and a kind hear,with a place to pray with out gender discriminations

Leemon Ravi: Memories of a Money order

Leemon Ravi: Memories of a Money order

Memories of a Money order

Indian financial segment is going through an array of paradigm shifts from the traditional procedures and nuances of wealth management and money transfer techniques.But there was a time when the people were totally dependent on money orders for sending and receiving of money to far away places,fulfilling the requirements of their dear ones.There were no quick money transfer methods available at that time with post offices in  rural areas flooded with people for initiating money transfers.Indian postal department has done a commendable job by serving the rural and urban crowd at relatively lesser cost with out much financial discrepancies but with minimum administration errors.These errors were very much acceptable,since the present  financial houses are  sitting on a heap of client agonies and scams.

I am thankful to our Indian Postal service,especially the money order system because of its importance during my graduation days.I have studied Mechanical engineering in LBS COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING.My college  is on a hummock with a steep gradient,measuring a distance of 1-2 km, to reach the destination from bus stand.stand. Even though the climb was horrible,it was exciting for me because of congenial company of friends,poking fun at one another.Every one of us had an opinion about everything under the sky,irrespective of the knowledge on the same.There was a bank inside the college,but of no utility to me because me or my mother was not having any bank account at that time.She was wholly reliant on Indian postal service.

The  post office in our area was at least 5 K Ms from the college with an expiration time of 5 PM every day.I used to stay far flung from college and not in the hostel to save money.
The postman was an old person in his fifties.His face was pleasant but dark,showcasing that he was working like a Trojan in his life.He wore a uniform,which lost its shimmer and started showing a different type of colour due to excess usage.He was unshaven with not so smooth walking action,due to some ailment on his legs.The money order arrived at the end of every month,with my eyes pinned outside my lecture room craving for the sight of postman.Month end was a period of sufferings and adjustments. The post man was never late or absent from work and my money order was never delayed.He used to give me money in multiples of  Rs.10 for the amount I received,which was a blessing for me,since it was difficult to get change from outside.I initially thought that,he was helping me out,but my friends told me that he is anticipating something and you have to pay some amount out of your money order amount.They told me to keep him happy,otherwise I have to travel all the way to the post office to collect money order.Moreover climbing the hillock was not an easy task,that too,by walk. He delivered the money order right to my class room.I was not happy,but paid him every time and always cursed him in my mind.The money send was too less to full fill my requirements and I was paying a part of that to this person also.Whenever I gave his incentive,he smiled at me,but I never smiled.His black colour small bag,which was torn in many places,was always wet because of his perspiration.There was some strange smell coming out of his bag every time and it appeared to be a Pandora box with so many items concealed inside.

One day,I was in the library drafting my project report and failed to hit the class.I  completely forgot  about the money order because of the project work.I remembered with a chill that,I had missed the money order and  there was no way but to go to the post office.I was not even owned the bus fare to reach there.I ran towards the lecture hall from the library in dejection,but for my surprise the post man was standing with a smile,at the entrance of the library.I felt relieved and liked his grin for the first time in my life.He told me that he ferreted around for me in the lecture hall and I was unavailable.He said"I thought you will be in dire need of this money and enquired about you with your friends.They told me that you are in the library.You have to be careful next time".I gave him some extra amount,above the usual incentive.But he took only the usual amount.I was surprised and felt bad for cursing him all these times.I smiled at him for the first time and thanked him.

Four years drifted by and,I was in the last month of my course.I got a call to our college phone from the same postman.He said"You have to collect the money order directly from the post office this time.The new postman refused to deliver to the college".He told me that he took Voluntary retirement and leaving this place forever.He also said" I felt  like informing you because,you may be in trouble with out money".I thanked him and hung the phone.I went to post office for the first time in my life.I have collected the money order from the office and  pulled out the incentive to give it to the officer because of my earlier practise.He refused this by saying that  this wont be necessary and be restrained from any act like this in the future.He gave me a lecture,about the negative impact of bribery.I asked him"Where is that old postman?".He quipped "He took VRS and left. His last working day was yesterday.He came today in the morning and made couple of calls and left".I came to know that he had a daughter and he slogged very hard for her marriage all through his life.His daughter marriage occurred one month before. The postman salary was not great at those times.I understood the reason behind his torn bag,rugged face and discoloured uniform.He climbed that hillock with his leg ailment for a cause.I felt very bad for the first time and tried to get his phone number,but in vein.

Morality and situations wont go hand in hand.Life situations force human beings to do so many acts which our morality wont permit.The postman was not having any other option apart from his salary, which may not have allowed him to full fill his daughter's marriage requirement.He might be a tender hearted person,but situation forced him to do so.Life will put all of us in stranger situations,where the principles go in shambles and the morality suffers.We have to really weigh all our options before surrendering morality.The postman weighed his options and chose to surrender morality,so that his daughter can live happily,obviously with morality.So judge a person based on his situations,before declaring him as an 'out cast'.

I am feeling good now,since part of my money has been contributed for a good cause,even during my miseries.This incident has upheld my respect towards one more person,my mother.She never surrendered her morality,but confronted all life situations choosing her available options properly,only for one cause,that is me.This allowed me to live a moral life,weighing my available options against the life situations.My mother gave me the foundation,for a moral life,in the same way as the postman paved the way for his daughter.
Who knows,with out her, I should have relinquished my morality for situations long ago?????

Hoping for a Moral life

Am I a patriot???

Am I a patriot? Are you a patriot?
Dissipate the evils of my country,
Fire in the belly, but yet doltish
Brain with vision, but yet bleary
Time has come for uphill battle
Time has come for young patriots to rise!!!

O God, you are faceless but many
Studded with inhumane religious ghosts
Sweat and blood overflowing for you,
Enlightened prodigies, made a nation to weep
Time has come to thwack, not to extol
Time has come for young human beings to rise!!!

Patriot's blood molded my country, not politicians
But my nation boasts of religious and political patriots
Shredding, tearing and squeezing for power and money
Imposing martial laws deep into the young minds,
Time has come to  impose patriotic laws to young minds,
Time has come for young moral beings to rise!!!

Biases, biases and biases, current slogan in diversified crowd,
Money, Money and money, chosen over education in a knowledge pool,
Perjury, perjury and perjury, the way of media, law and profession,
Like a wolf leading the pack,
Time has come to introduce unflinching  lions,
Time has come for young perspicacious leaders to rise!!!

Citizens falter casting the right, Ah! A pity,
But they upheld their caste while casting, moment of glory,
But they failed the country, moment of truth
Humongous crowd with all alphabet outfits,
Time has come to stand united for our rights,
Time has come for young citizens to rise!!!!

Am I a patriot? Are you a patriot?
Dissipate the evils of my country,
Fire in the belly,but yet doltish
Brain with vision, but yet bleary
Time has come for uphill battle
Time has come for young patriots to rise!!!

With Patriotism,

Plight of Indian farmers and need for a SPECIAL AGRICULTURAL ZONE(SAZ)

Agriculture is the back bone of India,since it constitutes a major contribution towards GDP.As Gandhi said "The soul of India is in the villages",we can say that "The soul of agriculture is in our fertile lands".Its good to hear about advanced agricultural techniques,awareness programmes,subsidized loans for farmers etc.This segment is still in doldrums even though we have an experienced manpower,diversified topography,huge land mass and sops from government.We have witnessed many incidents on farmer suicides and climatic catastrophes.Nowadays political parties are using these issues as a ladder for their electoral benefits and political benefits.We have umpteen committees,advisory boards,NGOs,banks to nullify the core agricultural issues,but all in vein because of an absence of intent towards the same from various outfits.Lets don't politicize the issue or act like a catalyst to flame up the core issue in this forum.We should find out a permanent solution for the same and execute  plans effectively,with out which our food deficit and infertile land masses can pose serious threats in the near future.


I am not the first person to raise the need of SAZ. Many eminent personalities including M.S Swaminathan(Agricultural scientist) has already demanded for SAZ to government through different sources and the effort is going on from 2006 onward.There are no developments or initiatives from the government for implementation of SAZ till now.SAZ is a zone which will be marked only for agricultural purpose like Special Economic Zone(SEZ) for industrial units.


Preservation of agricultural land
As I told you earlier "The soul of agriculture is in our fertile lands",fertile land is the gift of nature which can't be reproduced. Urbanization may be a stepping stone towards development,but not at the cost of our invaluable agricultural land.Fertile land is not mandatory for the creation of Hi tech cities and residential townships.The development of a rural area to an urban outfit is done by the administration based on many parameters,but Fertile land is not the part of any of these parameters for unknown reasons.Fertile land is decided by the contents in the soil and there will be a difference in the composition based on the topography.No body can create an infertile soil equivalent to natural best,but can replicate some features by the excessive use of artificial techniques which can harm the person consuming the produce.So many people succeeded in replicating the agricultural yield in terrace gardens and kitchen gardens.These arrangements can't be a replacement for agricultural lands  but only a mere arrangement which can't reduce the need of an entire country in the coming future.Preservation of agricultural land can act as a catalyst to maintain a perfect natural balance and think about a nation which can boast of vast agricultural land masses,which in turn can even think of catering the rest of the world also,along with our GDP and citizens.

Employment and empowerment of farmer community

India is blessed with a larger agricultural work force which is experienced and evolved over years.They are equipped with an abundant knowledge transferred from ancient times,in traditional farming techniques in all type of topographic areas.But they are forced to sell their land to land grabbers,so that they can give a normal life to their family.Farmers are slowly alienated and government aids garner zero benefits in the absence of a proper system. Genetic experiments and renowned agricultural methods are not required to increase the yield,but precious agricultural knowledge of our traditional farmers clubbed  with their will can create wonders.Establishment of a proper system in this segment is the need of the hour rather than advancement.Government can create employment to our traditional farmers by way of SAZ,thereby empowering farmer community.SAZ will instill confidence on traditional farming techniques at a low cost.Government bodies can work more closer with farmers and understand their problems.The benefits of SAZ is more rewarding than creating software platforms for agricultural awareness of a farmer,who is already struggling to make one toilet in his house because of financial crisis.
SAZ will create self sustainable farmer communities across the countries with lakhs of employment opportunities created.

Diversification of Agricultural process

Agriculture is not a simple process as many say.There are so many processes and brainstorming along with experience is required to get an yield.Once the yield is produced the same has to go through logistics and ware housing before reaching the end users.Diversification of the agriculture process can be done effectively,if all the process happen in the same place.SAZ will facilitate the execution of these diversified processes in a systematic manner at a lower cost. Preparation of the soil,sowing seeds,harvesting,logistics,warehousing and packaging can be done in a shorter span of time compared to the existing obsolete and time consuming processes.Many of the foreign investors and technologies can be attracted in an easier way by showcasing SAZ. Moreover the diversification increases the revenue and profit of farmers and country rather than increasing the burden.

Ground water level,flora and fauna

Ground water level is an important aspect of an ecology.Ground water is formed after centuries of natural process and it add on to 20% of world's fresh water supply.This has to be preserved and rejuvenated from depletion.Depleted ground water regions will become deserts and the soil will become infertile.Ground water preservation methods like effective canal systems and rain water harvesting systems allow us to protect this source for the consumption of people.Even if the government has made Rain water harvesting mandatory in cities,developers are less equipped and least known about the advanced rain water harvesting methods.The regulations and mandates can be changed with the help of bureaucrats and politicians as per the comfort of a developer,which will deter the actual purpose.We are going through an era where there is a scarcity of rain and constant climatic changes.Destruction of river beds are also a major concern.Government has created Development authorities for lakes but the office bearers are busy developing their personal properties. SAZ can eliminate this by driving out cities from fertile zones to infertile zones.

Flora and fauna is very essential for ecological balance.God has created human beings as a part  in an ecosystem,and not as a controller.If we are not living as a part of the nature,in coming future the nature will wipe out this race from earth.We have seen deforestation in the name of agriculture.But we should know that there are type of crops which will grow along with the forest with out destroying the same.SAZ can effectively implement agriculture suited to forest areas with out destroying the Flora and fauna. Tribal community in that particular area can be utilized to develop effective farming techniques suitable for forest lands.

Effective warehousing and logistics

Agricultural products are perishable goods.Our country is facing serious warehousing issues with lakhs of tonnes of food products rotten to drain.We should think that our country has a major number of BPL families.Death by starvation  are on a very higher side.An effective ware housing will address the issue.Logistics has always been a problem for agricultural products.Absence of better preservation techniques of food products during logistics and warehousing is a big concern to government agencies.There are private organisations who have implemented better preservation techniques like cut vegetable preservation,food grains preservation along with better packaging to end users.SAZ will open up a way to pull in these private players because of the quantity of yield,which will improve the efficiency of our existing logistics and warehousing methods.This will help government to think beyond ration shop systems to reach the BPL families with quality food products.The role of middlemen can be eliminated completely.

Elimination of land grabbing

Real estate land grabbing is a nemesis nowadays.The land grabbers or their associates never think about the loss of fertile land or ecological problems ,since they are concentrated towards money making.The flaws in our existing land rules and complications in judicial systems add on to the miseries.I have seen many articles about the need of  a powerful law for stopping this crime.But the delay in drafting,fight between the political outfits and constitutional logger heads failed to decelerate land grabbing activities.I am not saying that SAZ will reduce this crime,but at least this will stop the poaching of fertile land.Constitution and our lawmakers has to have the real guts to clean this mess.

Acquisition of fertile land for R&D has always
costed the farmer.Indian R&D techniques will open up an array of opportunities,once the scientists and the experiments are exposed to a huge agricultural land mass.SAZ will enable the right application of lab techniques and a higher sample size compared to the present scenario.Scientists are constantly under pressure to develop agricultural technologies which will produce maximum yield on a minimal land mass.These type of methods will lead to heavy use of chemical pesticides,food products with less carbohydrate and protein content and lesser life of a fertile land.SAZ will encourage experiments which will improve the traditional methods.Government will be in a position to produce nutritional food products with the help of organic manure.Chemical companies will be forced to concentrate on producing organic pesticides.Our scientists can develop advanced agricultural methods in India itself,instead of visiting European countries.Our country is blessed with scientists of high intellectual acumen, capable of creating agricultural heavens at a very minimal cost.Government can create a perfect environment and platform for our brilliant scientists through SAZ.

Implementation of Schemes and benefits

Government is declaring many schemes and benefits for the farmers every year.But none of these reach the farmers because of corrupt officials and ministers.If the Schemes and benefits has to reach a farmer,it should be direct,but the same is not happening because of the complex segmentation of our bureaucratic system.The Schemes prepared by our administration and decision makers are undoubtedly flawless,but the system of fund flow is like a leaking funnel.The system uses different leaking funnels in different levels of fund flow.The end use will only get an inadequate amount which will reach him after so many delays and processes.A benefit becomes a curse.if it wont be given on the right time.SAZ allows Government to channel the benefits in a simpler way to the needy on time.Families with traditional farming back grounds can be used for SAZ by allotting land to them inside SAZ. This will  create more revenue to the farmers and encourages their coming generations to take up agriculture as a profession. SAZ can undoubtedly increase the labor force in agricultural segment and can act as a catalyst in reducing our food deficit.

There are many other advantages of SAZ.We  need an action from Government to implement SAZ in a transparent and simple way.It shouldn't go to drain like many other ambitious projects started earlier.This is all about existence of human race and eradication of death by starvation.Human race cant sustain with out food.Lets start living along with nature,not by controlling nature.
