Organic

The beginning of the 20th century brought a word that is frequently used in most of what we employ and consume today. The word “Organic” was not only used liberally but is today a fashionable statement related to the food we consume and organic clothes on the world’s fashion catwalks, a very popular topic in social circles, formulating of governments agricultural and other policies and brought to the fore on many other forums too.

What is Organic?

“Organic” is derived from the biological word “Organism” which refers to everything that is living which we see around us and is the most important cog in the “Cycle of Nature”.

It is estimated that the Earth is home to about 10 to 14 million different species of living organisms of which we have been able to document only about 1.2 million hence there are millions of species that we don’t know about, and with us, humans on the top of it, forms the very big inter-related “Cycle of Nature”.

Rape of the environment

We humans have been the bane to the “Cycle of Nature” with our callous actions, dabbling in laboratory invented chemicals and chemical compounds from environmentally unfriendly products like plastics, polythene, fertilizers, weedicides, pesticides and many other chemical based compounds.

We have raped the very environment that we live in and which is very important for the sustenance and survival of our generation and those to follow.

Food production

Food is important to the sustenance of all organisms and we humans consume a majority of it and whilst other orgasms depend on what “Nature” has to offer them, we have tended to grow them in vast fields destroying “Nature” and to add insult to injury we have done so using dangerous chemicals that has affected the water tables below and the air above us.

Like that apt saying, “Locking the stable door after the horses have bolted” we are now awakening to our follies and endeavoring to take corrective actions, whether it would be too little too late, ONLY TIME WILL TELL.

Organic food production

In the above context, “Organic” food is taking pride of place more among those conscious of the damages we are doing to the environment especially governments who are being advised by the different agencies of the United Nations to clean up their environment and those who have taken upon themselves to promote food so cultivated and also this global issue has become a fashionable statement to many and if it is a good cause, so be it.

“Organic” is what is grown organically without the use of chemical fertilizer, pesticides and weedicides but with the use of natural organic decomposed manure, companion planting where natural cross pollination and pest control is encouraged by nature’s hand.

The “Green revolution” that is taking place around the world is a good step in the right direction and every one of us must endeavor to ensure that we do our part by being aware of what Organic” could do to the future.

Chocolates the favorite among everyone where age is no barrier and consumed all around the world and estimated to cross the colossal worldwide sales volume of US $100 billion going into 2017 is one food we try to grow as Organic as possible the world over.
