Success story of using vermi compost
Ekal has always been promoting the use of vermi compost in the fields and do away with chemical fertilizers, for better health of all.
This is the story of one Ms Savitri Devi of Kherdih village in the Silli block of Jharhand state. She owns about an acre of land. Earlier she was using chemical fertilizers but for the last 8 years she has been using earthworm manure and she is very happy with the produce from her field. She produces vegetables like potato, tomato, brinjal and also other crops like paddy and pulses.
Savitri says that using chemical fertilizers earlier made the earth hard and became difficult to plant paddy etc. Now with vermi compost the land is soft. She says that the vegetables now have a better taste and the quantity of produce has also increased. Now she does not have to buy earthworms as they generate themselves. In fact, she is now planning to sell earthworms to neighbors too!
Ekal inspires dumb and deaf child too!
This is the story of Amrita Purane from a remote village, Jamkasha, in the state of Chhattisgarh. This village girl, though being deaf and dumb, joined Ekal Vidyalaya along with the other village children. She mingles quite well with other children due to the support and motivation she got from the Ekal Acharya. With her spirits at new high, she enjoys life like any other child in her village. Her parents, farmers, thank Ekal for her current status.
She goes to the state's primary school in Jamkasha, in the mornings but used to feel lonely there. She would spend her time alone in a corner in her class room. But things are not the same after she joined Ekal Vidyalaya in the evenings. She also shows much interest in her academic learning now.
