On June 24th 2012, Satyamev Jayate, the popular television show anchored by Aamir Khan, picked up a critical theme
Poison On Our Plate?
The episode showcased how our food and water are being contaminated by deadly pesticides which have been promoted as necessary for better agricultural output. The reality is that we don’t need these pesticides and the use of these pesticides is not only detrimental for health but results in expensive farming methods. The solution is to adopt organic/ecological/natural farming, which is possible and profitable.
In this context, a
“SAFE FOOD MELA”
is being organized
at Dr. Marigowda Memorial Hall, Lalbagh, Bangalore
on 30th June & 1st July 2012
(11 am till 7 pm on both days)
