Let’s Revere The Soil !
“To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Let’s not forget ourselves.
Soil is fundamental to all life on earth. Scientists world over describe soils as the skin of the living world, vital but thin and fragile, and easily damaged by intensive farming, forest destruction, pollution and global warming. The need of the hour is to create awareness on the importance of conserving the soil. Thiruvalluvar mentions about handling the soil with care to get a good yield.
தொடிப்புழுதி கஃசா உணக்கின் பிடித்தெருவும்
வேண்டாது சாலப் படும்.
If one measure of soil, is turned fine and dried to a quarter, Good yield needs not a handful of manure.
Soil is life, Conserve it! An everyday reminder to ward off a crisis in the future.
