Milk without Antibiotics, Hormons and Pesticides, Akshaya Kalpa enlightens on a noble concept, a white revolution of its own kind.

It is a fact that Milk available in urban area is a liquid mixture of pesticides, antibiotics and hormones. Akshaya Kalpa guides us on  farm fresh Milk from their  unit in Tiptur, outskirts of Bangalore. 

When Mr. Ravi Shankar Former Vice President of Wipro speaks about the importance of farmer welfare schemes one can understand what he really aims for. There no need for every second person to become a software engineer where there exist a million opportunity  to do innovative entrepreneurship. Ravi Shankar joined Akshaya Kalpa not in general to accumulate wealth but for its noble farmer friendly innovations.

As we all know, 70% of India's population  still lives in Villages whereas  almost all the major investments happen in and around the urban areas.

Akshaya Kalpa focuses on the welfare of farmers in a direct method that it is a social enterprise with a vision to rejuvenate Indian Culture with a commitment which is more social to the needs of the villages in general.

Indian farmers still  engage in  a lot of hard Manuel work while their urban counterparts talk aloud about industrial revolutions and advanced technical growth. Akshaya Kalpa works with a vision that uplifts the self respect of the farmers in general. There no middle sector that the benefit directly reaches a farmer.

Indian youngsters have not taken Agriculture seriously and in future our country may force to import the synthetic rice from China to meet our demands. It is where we find the importance of educated Indians to join hands with the Farmers for a better future. India needs such Entrepreneurs; the one with a vision that serves the society as a whole. 



Journalist and tour guide Wilma Rodriques has visited various heritage sites across the 
country. The condition of garbage disposal at most places left her disheartened and inspired her to do something about solving the problem. This resulted in the inception of a waste management organisation called Saahas in 2001. "The aim was to help educate people about government rules for waste management as they were difficult to be followed and got ignored," says Rodriques. 

This was where Saahas stepped in to provide the necessary systems to manage disposed waste. Since then, her organisation has been taking several measures like encouraging people to carry their own shopping bags, composting organic waste, and other initiatives to help reduce the waste at source. Besides that, Saahas manages seven tons of waste each day at their units which are set up at various premises. The organisation provides recycling and disposal outlets to corporate companies such as Microsoft, educational institutions like Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB), a few residential properties and schools like Sri Kumaran Children's Home. "I want to scale up operations so that services extend to other Indian cities too," says Rodriques. "Saahas shown that if you really believe in something, it works out," she adds It is a fact that Bangalore has got 4000 tons of waste to clear in a day one can hope that many will follow footsteps to make Bangalore a more Beautiful place on this earth.

Wilma's speaks with a dream of a  Zero Waste Zone.
