It was early 2001 and I met a man called Jagdish Nazareth. A simpleton who worked in drought hit areas of Gujarat advising farmers to shun chemical fertilizers and use pro-biotic fertilizer. One fine morning, he gave me 5 kilograms of Onion made from one such experiment and asked me to cut it at home and see if tears roll out of my eyes which is traditionally attached to onions. He was right. It tasted better too. Those days organic concepts was not as popular and this proved to be something interesting. So I went with him to the fields and found farmers using his method successfully. One interesting fact that I noticed from speaking with him was the pressure he was facing from ferilizer lobby which throttled every attempt by anyone who found alternatives to fertilizers. He died late 2003 out of a cardiac arrest. Just reliving the reporting memories.
