BK Shivani, a motivational speaker also in attendance, said there was less content consumption two or three decades ago.
“By 2040, India will be able to produce 100% organic food.” “It would surely be possible to transform India into an organic country with political will and collective work,” remarked Pawan Chamling, former chief minister of Sikkim, during the opening of the third “Global Organic Expo 2022 at the Indian Agriculture Research Institute, Pusa Road, New Delhi.
“Return to Humanity” was the theme. During the opening session, Chamling affirmed Sikkim’s status as India’s premier organic state and praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for championing the organic agenda at the national level and turning it into a program national.
“On January 18, 2016, Sikkim was recognized as the first 100% organic state in the world by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The first step was to approve a resolution in the Sikkim Legislative Assembly on February 24, 2003, declaring the Sikkim a fully organic state. We passed the historic resolution in the State Assembly because agriculture is a state subject. “On December 31, 2015, we succeeded in transforming Sikkim into a fully organic state after 12 years of hard work and perseverance,” Chamling said.
BK Shivani, a motivational speaker also in attendance, said there was less content consumption two or three decades ago. What we eat has a direct impact on our mental health. What we watch, read and listen to affects our emotional eating.
Manoj Mishra, Director of Global Projects, Iconic Limited Liability Exhibits, agreed that the main objective of this expo is “profitability for humanity”, as health is more vital for future generations as people eat food contaminated by ignorance. We hope to raise awareness of the benefits of organic food and encourage farmers to practice organic farming across the country through this exhibition. »
“There is a need to promote natural agriculture in the country,” said Dr. Bharat Pathak, National Officer Ganga Vichar Manch, Namami Gange. “Rainwater harvesting is necessary, and the promotion of water conservation is also necessary for natural agriculture. The Global Organic Expo highlighted the importance of organic agriculture, which is good not only for people’s health but also for the health of the earth as a whole.
“The Global Organic Expo – 2022 is the first time in Delhi that the business community, traders, government organizations and chambers of commerce have come together to facilitate business.”
