It was our first Finger Millets harvest at Vaksana Farms.(Third harvest overall, after Rice and Black Grams). We grew finger millets (or Kezhvaragu in Tamil) in 1.5 acres of land. This was primarily for our consumption and the idea is to grow our own good. A very enthusiastic and hardworking team of volunteers from The Weekend Agriculturist helped us in partly harvesting the crop. Here are photos from the harvest. More Photos
We celebrated my Dad’s birthday at our farm in a unique way. Instead of a cake, we had a freshly harvested water melon for him to cut. It was great to have the entire team of farm volunteers sing the birthday song and wish him. It made his day!
If you have anything to do with App development, don’t miss this event. The first edition in Hyderabad was a huge success. This time, AppFest 2013 is happening at IIM Ahmedabad.
Got featured in today’s front page of Deccan Chronicle’s supplement. This was an emotional moment for me. The last time I was on the same front page was in a very negative story around TEDx. Proves that life will have its ups and downs and we need to take both in our stride.The online link to the story in high resolution is here http://www.dc-epaper.com/PUBLICATIONS/DC/DCC/2013/07/04/ArticleHtmls/Explore-travel-and-enjoy-life-04072013112021.shtml?Mode=1
