Proudly Co-operative: Balu makes a scintillating speech

Balu Iyer, Regional Director of ICA-AP made a scintillating presentation at NCUI Auditorium last week and exhorted cooperators to publicize their works both at national and international fora. “Nobody will talk about what you do unless you talk about it”, he underlined.

Balu was speaking on “Cooperatives and Sustainable Development Goals”-an event which was organized by NCUI on the day of its Annual General Body Meeting.

Listing the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals Balu proved with examples that cooperative is active in almost all of them and yet in the Voluntary National Report presented by the govt in the United Nations, not even once the word “cooperative” was mentioned. “This is because we do not tell govt what we are doing”, he said addressing cooperators present in the Hall.

Citing the example of water conservation by a co-op society in Lopariya village of Rajasthan and the digital payment facilities being offered by Thenhipalam Co-op Rural Bank in the name of Coopaisa, Balu said SDGs are very much part of our cooperative activities; alas we are not recongnized for the same”, he felt.

Balu’s main argument hovered around the fact that if the govt does not know what we do it would never take us on board for various activities in which we have a comparative advantage. Referring to Prime Minister’s goal of doubling farmers’ income Balu quoted Amul MD R S Sodhi’s statement in which the latter said that farmers’ income was raised four times at GCMMF.

Balu quoted ULCC as one of the best examples of Start-up India- a pet mantra of the Modi govt. “We are already active in the priority areas of the govt and yet we are not recognized”, he lamented.

Even UNO recognizes co-operative as a dependable tool to achieve SDGs, said Balu while repeating the resolution of the Quebec Conference in which it was decided that membership to cooperative fold would be increased from 1 billion to 2 and the figure for co-op enterprises would touch 4 million from the current 2 million by 2030.

But for this we need to integrate youths into our fold, he said while reading out conclusions of a survey on youth’s interest in cooperatives. He expressed satisfaction about the survey report which said 61% of today’s youth are willing to be part of co-operatives and are also willing to contribute up to Rs 500 for the purpose.

For a change, cooperators were the listeners in the meeting and they heard him out with rapt attention. Some of them also raised questions as Balu explained his subject brilliantly.

Ritesh Dey, Deputy Director of NCUI coordinated the event.

    HATS OFF TO GCMMF FOR QUADRUPLING THE INCOME OF FARMERS IN ITS AREA OF OPERATION KHEDA/ANAND. CENTRAL GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO DOUBLE IN NEXT FOUR YEARS. HERE ONE GREAT IDEA IS DOING ROUND ON U-TUBE. IF INDIAN FARMERS GO FOR “SHIV YOG” AGRICULTURE PROPOUNDED BY PUJYA BABA SHIVANAND JI MAHARAJ, THROUGH HIS SPIRITUAL POWERS , FARMERS COULD BE ABLE TO SAVE 60-80% OF THE COSTS OF AGRI. PRODUCTION WITHIN IN A YEAR OF ADOPTING SHIV YOG AGRICULTURE. THE METHOD IS VERY SIMPLE: THE FARMER AND TWO , THREE FAMILY MEMBERS AFTER TAKING BATH HAS TO REACH HIS AGRICULTURE FIELD BEFORE SUNRISE AND SIT ON THE GROUND (ONE CARPET CAN BE USED). THERE HE HAS TO CALL (AWAHAN) THE SHIV YOG SANJEEVNI SHAKTI WITH THE BLESSING OF BABA SHIVANAND, BHAGWAN SHIV SHIVA, MAHAMRITUYNJAY AND PRAY THAT LET THE SANJEEVNI SHAKTI EMINATE THROUGH MY BOTH PALMS AND THIRD EYE . THEN HE/THEY WILL SEND THIS SANJEEVNI SHAKTI ON BHAGWAN SURYA DEVTA AND THEN PRAY TO HIM TO RESEND THIS DIVINE SHAKTI ON HIS FIELD (ALSO ON SEED, FARM EQUIPMENTS, MILCH ANIMALS, FRUIT YIEDLING TREES). AND THEN HE HAS TO CHANT THE DIVINE MANTRA “OM HRUM JOOM SAH” FOR HALD AN HOUR DAILY BU KEEPING HIS EYES CLOSED AND IMAGINING THAT SUN GOS IS CONTINUOUSLY POURING THE SANJEEVINI SHAKTI ON HIS FARM. FINALLY HE HAS TO THANK HIS GURU BABJI, SHIV SHIVA, MAHA MRITYUNJAYA SHAKTI AND SUN GOD. FIRST YEAR THERE WILL BE INCREASE OF 10-20% IN YIELD OF ALL TYPES WITHOUT USE OF CHEMICAL FERTILIZER OR PESTICIDES OR 3-4 TIME WATERING. NEXT YEAR IT WILL BE 50% OR EVEN DOUBLE.. AND SO ON. THIS WAY HE WILL BE ABLE TO CUT DOWN HIS EXPENSES BY 60-80% AND INCREASE IN YIELD, IMAGINE THEN WHAT WILL BE THE RESULT FOR MOTHER EART, FARMERS, COUNTRY AND ALL CONSUMERS WHO ARE FALLING ILL DUE TO CHEMICAL FERTILISERS AND OTHER POISIONS. MOTHER EARTH WILL ALSO BESTOW HER BLESSINGS AND ALL WORMS WILL HELP MAKE THE LAND FERTILE . LET STATE AND CENTER DECIDE WITH THE HELP OF PACS. WONDER IS WAITING TO HAPPEN. NAMAH SHIVAY BABAJI.

    BABJI HAS BEEN INVITED BY TOP AGRICULTURE UNIVERSITIES LIKE JNU AGRI UNIVERSITY CHATTISGARH, NAVSARI, JUNAGARH AND MANY FOREIGN UNIVERSITIES TO GUIDE THEM HOW TO DO SHI YOG KHETI. MANY SEMINARS HAVE TAKEN PLACE AS WELL AS SHIV YOG KRISHI SHIVIRS BY PUJYA BABJI IN M,ANY PARTS OF THE COUNTRY.THE TOP AGRI. SCIENTISTS HAVE BEEN MESMERISED BY THE CONFIDENCE OF FARMERS INCLUDING FOREIGNERS WHO HAVE GONE FOR THIS DIVINE FORM OF AGRI. THE DEAD SOIL DUE TO EXCESS USE OF CHEMICALS AND PESTICIDES IS GETTING NEW LEASE OF LIFE. THE EARTH WORMS WHO HAVE EITHER DIED OR LEFT THE FIELDS FOR SAFER PLACES ARE COMING UP ALIVE WHERE SHIV YOG AGRICULTURE IS BEING PRACTICED WITH THE BLESSINGS OF BABJI. OUR HEART WEEPS WHEN WE HEAR FARMERS’ SUICIDES DUE TO HEAVY EXPENDITURES, BANK LOANS AND LOW YIELD. CAN NOT WE DO A LITTLE SERVICES TO OUR KISSAN BHAI AND OUR COUNTRY BY PORPOGATING THIS DIVINE KEHETI WHICH COSTS NOTHING. THE ADVISE IS FREE AND FREE THINGS ARE SAID TO BE USELESS. BUT THIS FREE THING HAS THE POWER TO SHAPE THE FUTURE OF THE COUNTRY, OUR LAND, RIVERS, MOUNTAINS, FLORA AND FAUANA AND WHAT NOT. THE WATER LEVEL IS ALSO COMING UP WHERE FARMERS HAVE STARTED SHIV YOG DIVINE KHETI. THE PEOPLE ARE ALSO DESTINED TO GET “AMRTITASYA BHOJNAM” BEREFT OF ALL CHEMICAL POISONS WHICH IS MAKING OUR FOOD, WATER, FRUIT, VEGETABLES AND MILK NON EATABLE OR CREATING TERMINAL DISEASES IN LARGE NUMBER. ABOVE ALL WE NEED WELFARE OF OUR FARMERS. LET THIS NEWS PORTAL SPREAD THIS DIVINE TRUTH TO THE TOP ECHELONS OF AGRICULTURE MINISTRY AND ALL CONCERNED DEPARTMENTS (CHEMICAL MANUFACTURING COMPANIES , MULTINATIONALS WILL OPPOSE IT TOOTH AND NAILS BECAUSE THEIR BUSINESS IS GOING TO BE ADVERSELY AFFECTED, OUR FOOT).
