Amrita Sadivaiyal Vyavasayam Kulu, a group comprising of twenty farmers, belonging to the tribal community of Irulas, initiated organic farming at Sadivaiyal, a tribal hamlet in the suburbs of Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. This paper explores the case of organic agriculture in a tribal village in Tamil Nadu. Amrita SeRVe is an initiative launched by the Mata Amritanadamayi Math. One of its main objectives is to motivate farmers to make the transition to organic agriculture and hand-hold / mentor them as they make the switch. Amrita SeRVe (Self Reliant Village project) planned and helped the farmers from tillage, collection of seeds, preparation of manures and pesticides, introduction of technological innovations, modern methods in production and processing of raw materials till the marketing of products. This experiment tried at Sadivaiyal united the farmers in a pristine culture of sharing, caring, protecting and selling paddy together. This empowered them to know and bargain for their rights. This was clearly demonstrated in their farming practices, done without any instance of money-lending or of borrowing loans from banks.

  9. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
