Stay Safe and Don’t Travel.

Stay Home and Continue Farming
The name of my friend is Karsa from Pancashari, Bali.
I had a video call with him, he showed me his farming, this is how we meet virtually during this Pandemic. This is the best time to catch up with your friends and stay positive.
Know about Pancashari:
The Pancasari Market is one of Bali’s most traditional farmer’s markets, where you can experience a truly local open marketplace scene, with various kinds of fresh vegetables and fruits harvested from the nearby farms and plantations of the highland Pancasari community. The market is a common stopover on tours to Bali’s north, via the Bedugul-Singaraja main route. This non-touristy market comprises different small and down-to-earth stalls that offer a great variety of daily local necessities, and it is also a good place to witness a bit of Balinese culture through dedicated stalls selling ornate ritual items and flower offerings.

Thanks Noor Mohammad Ali Chopani my friend from Afghanistan for sharing the positive story through photos from his country.

Donat Kananura, my friend from Uganda has shared these pictures, he tries to tell a positive story from his place in these difficult times. He runs “Jenal Tours and Travel” in Uganda.
I spoke to Donat to check the condition in Uganda and according to him there has not been an outbreak at this point in time but people are staying at home and don’t venture out and there is fear amongst the people. As medical facilities are not great there they fear if there is an outbreak it will be difficult to control.
Through these pictures he shares his banana cultivation in his village while his son is spending time with him.
Banana is one of the most important food crops in Uganda. About 75% of the farmers are engaged in banana cultivation. Most of this production is for local consumption. In addition, banana insures income to the farmer throughout the year, provides soil surface cover, reduces soil erosion on steep slopes and a principal source of mulch for maintaining and improving soil fertility. Banana also provides food for animals.

Story 8, Himachal Pradesh, India
Stay Home and Create Organic Products
My dearest friend and elder brother, Anil Attri ji sent these photos from his native village, Himachal Pradesh.
The pictures reflect the process of organic Kumkum making by his mother.
You may ask what is KumKum?
Kumkuma is a powder used for social and religious markings in India and some other countries of the world. It is made from turmeric or any other local materials. The turmeric is dried and powdered with a bit of slaked lime, which turns the rich yellow powder into a red color.
This is a very traditional method of preparation of kumkum which unlike the variety usually available in the market is unadulterated and safe. Made with turmeric and lemons, the organic kumkum produced by Aapna Ghar team seeks to restore the purity of the traditional kumkum.

My good friend Abhishek Dey, sent me this photo with a message in it. Thanks Abhishek for this encouraging message and the photo during this difficult time. I am sure we shall sail through this.
This picture was clicked sometime back at Pondicherry during my morning walk along the promenade.
The picture signifies that no matter how bad the times are, no matter how hard it is , the sun will always rise and the rays will always engulf you with a brand new day full of sunshine. It’s more important to feel alive when you feel like giving up. These hard times shall pass too
