‘Vasudha Organic farms’ is in one of the villages in Madhya Pradesh, India, where organic cotton farming is practiced. The farmer and their family, at the grass roots level, is the foundation of a country’s security and growth. They provide us food, authentic values, and forms the roots of our heritage. An educated and enlightened farmer is our hope for the future as much as our connection to the past. The mother is the first teacher. Learning from her creates the character of the child and the nation.
