Dr. GBK Says, it is the mankind who damaged the ecology for their greediest aspirations in the guise of development and the ultra-modern lifestyles. It is our Responsibility to conserve the ecology by planting more trees, habituating vedic food (harithaahaaram) viz. Millets, Pulses, Herbal Decoctions and Palm jaggeryinstead of unhealthy Rice, Wheat and Sugar cane which consume more water and contribute to the ecological imbalance. Due to excess and unprofessional usage of chemical pesticides and fertilizers the soil is contaminated with the particles of arsenic, led, mercury which are hazardous to health. It was also stressed that Telangana farmers are using 185 kgs of chemical fertilizers per acre as against the national average of 52.1 kgs per acre. This is 261% above to the national average consumption of chemical fertilizers. The soil pollution is the root cause for pollution of five elements and the environment as well. COVID-19 is only a starting and hundreds of such viruses are going to erupt. The Only answer to face these challenges is to practice Indian vedic food culture and cowbased natural farming.
