BS Tomar, Joint Director (Extension), Indian Agricultural Research Institute

On 27 July 2022, Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) of Gurugram launched a campaign for water conservation. Which has been called Kisan Mela Jal Shakti Abhiyan-2022. The aim of this mission is to save water, to explain to everyone the importance of water conservation.

At the beginning of this Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) program, Dr. Pant, COO of Krishi Jagran and chief guest BS Tomar along with other officials visited the programme. We inform that 13 different types of stalls have been installed in this program, out of which one of Krishi Jagran was also present. This program was organized in Gurugram city of Haryana. Inaugurating this Kisan Mela programme, KVK President Dr. Anamika Sharma inspired people to collect rain water.

After that, taking the program forward, Dr. Jagbir Singh told them the importance of getting farmers registration to benefit farmers. He said that only then you all can move forward and also made people know the family identity card, my cultivation details.

With this, he said that the last date of Prime Minister Kisan Yojana is approaching, so all farmers should do it soon for e-KYC. Apart from this, he also explained how he will benefit from Mera Pani Meri Virasat Yojana. Seeing the enthusiasm of the children who participated in this program, he said that all of you children can easily benefit by taking advantage of the government program. For this you only need to take samples from the farmer’s fields and also you have to take a sample fee of 10 rupees from that farmer but keep in mind that you have to take this sample from 600 different fields. Only after that, 24 thousand rupees will be given to the children for this work. At the end, he gave a welcome gift from Gurugram’s KVK center to the senior lady of the show.

To carry out this program, Dr. Pragati Singh said that we all have to make a lot of efforts to collect water. Because of this, you should prevent all water from flowing down the drains. You should store all water in a place where it can be used properly. Apart from that, we should avoid doing this type of farming, which requires the maximum amount of water, so farmers should do other crops instead of paddy in their field. We have to make small efforts to save water. Such as putting crop residues into the soil, collecting water from the roof and retaining water in the field.

doing the right things at the right time choice (choose the right things at the right time)

Dr. Pant, COO of Krishi Jagran, said that it is very important to choose the right things at the right time. We must recognize the object of water. That’s why we all have to work together. Apart from this, he said that there are very few such magazines, which have been prepared for the benefit of water and farmers. Among these magazines is Krishi Jagran’s magazine, which is working in the interest of the farming brothers of the country and will continue to do so. Apart from this, he encouraged farmers to do natural farming. He also said that we should all stay grounded. At the end, he urged everyone to store water. Otherwise we will not be able to do agriculture in the near future.

BS Tomar, Joint Director while greeting everyone at this Jal Shakti Abhiyan of Kisan Mela said that the schemes of Government of India are very beneficial for the farmers. We keep worrying you all with the implementation of these many schemes, but all these schemes are only for you all. He further said that this time there has been very little rain in Gurugram city, but due to rain in the city, there is only water, but there is no water and water in the village. If seen, all the water falls in 2 or 3 showers. To understand the water quality, KVK of Gurugram has started this mission.

Even in the present time, women carry water on their heads. (Even today, women carry water on their heads)

Apart from this, BS Tomar said that even today there is such a situation in our country that women and girls carry water from many kilometers by putting a pot on their heads. Not only that, even today many houses do not have taps. Even now, the villagers use the collective tap for all this. Faced with all these problems, the government is gradually making changes, so the water we all have today should be used properly. To increase the availability of water, we have to start it from our home. Do not use household water unnecessarily. Nowadays people waste water like this while washing, saving, brushing their teeth. You will all be surprised to know that I have taught many people in my home how to work by hand to save water.

The children present in this mission today must pledge that we will save water with water. Along with this, he also told the farmers that the water from the field to the field, the land from the field to the field should be addressed to this. The water has gone down 3 times in 50 years. Such a big change in these 50 years makes us all think about what our children will cultivate in the coming times. When there is no water.

At the end, she said about daughters that we all should give freedom to daughters too, so that they can move on and make their own identity. I have given my daughter complete freedom to move forward. Similarly, all of you should also give freedom to your daughters. People in the society must bring a change in their thinking towards daughters and give respect to all daughters.
