Rural development

We always talk and write about urban planning and management. Now it’s time to focus on rural architecture. Agriculture is important and to keep the land remain as a harvesting field we must plan now. I have an outline. Map all the fields to distinguish the harvest. Then find a location which has the worst production capacity. Use that piece of land as a residential area.

Next link all these low production sites with a transportation system. It can be a hover craft. The fields now needs to be developed as a levels, meaning we must go for multiple level farming. What needs ground and which produces can be elevated has to be identified. This will to some extent save land as a resource.

The edge where farm land ends and a transitional space starts that belt should be now a new housing scheme for farmers who owns or works in the farmland. Housing scheme must have all amenities and banking facilities alongwith transportation network and huge storage spaces.

The scheme should have a genetic engineering centre for advancement and learning of farming. The previous hand on experience of farmers and the new methods evolving for example in Netherlands can be a way to advance production capacity and enriching the soil conditions.

Rain water collection and redistribution must be planned for overcoming water shortage during summer. A vast field be set aside for cattle and poultry as a supportive food system. A mobile health care unit for animals must be available for maintenance of animals husbandry.

Milk and eggs supply to cities must be planned for best returns for farmers. The farmers should become richer than ever before as food is the most important thing in our lives.

The education system be oriented towards becoming best farmers as a degree. The students will learn more effectively and scientifically. The approach is to bring the land value of farming land more than urban plots. The economic benefits of living in rural areas will compete with cities.

Hence progress will not mean migration to cities rather it will be living in a farm land. The building designed for farmers be duplex with a double height space for creating better air movement. The light and ventilation be natural . Solar energy equipment be planned to become part of the building design. Hence each building will be self sustainable in their own pace. And contribute to the national grid.

The inheritance of land normally divides the land. The division should be in income and not on physical land. So that joining of land can benefit them more in production capacity. Privilege of living and working in a farm must be in terms of cash benefits and health insurance.

Let’s retain farmland and progress anew. Agriculture needs a fresh start.

2018- The New year

2018 what can you do for me? Nothing. Time will pass just as it does at its own pace. Yes, I can do something better than last year. I willl be aware of things happening around me and world. I will be conscious of balancing my life and love my family and friends with more warmth, sincerity and dedication. I may not be able to transform instantly but my steps will move forward.

2018 I am not new but can renew my strength, take care of my health in mind and body. How we get confused about good and bad…does it mean my inner self has weakened.. should I not help myself.

I should wake up…and get started… Life is passing..

People and places

Different types of people are found in different locations,makes sense. Physical aspects that includes weather, terrain and food are reasons for our difference. Should we mix with each other being global ,if yes to what extent? I used to think we as humans are same ,I was wrong.

We are different but definitely equal. Those with blue eyes and fair complexion looks good  are equal to opportunities and favours in life competition. In pockets of land defining boundaries develop more demarcation within and the smallest enclosure is the size we relate to in reality. Nothing wrong in feeling rooted tie bonds with those who speaks your language and appreciate your customs. Culture based people are stronger because of the support system. When the community gets bonded it is altogether a higher level of relationship. Generations are linked and values are added to your individual persona.

Yet, it will suffocate if it tries to deny basic rights. Living in Asia I know that educational background and family both are equal in getting a job. Your boss wants to know you because that helps to understand your behaviour. What to expect from you. Hence social security is not a number rather it’s a link to your family. You maybe rich or not but your social status is recommendable, hence each member must think before taking any leap.

Family unit defined by sociology relating to kitchen is not enough. Sociology and economic development must relate to culture. Economic development should focus on building stronger bonds within a society where we are equal to voice our concerns. People should become positive and supportive to inculcate values that teaches us to be thoughtful and caring. Generous and intelligent, we must pull people from darkness of injustice and push them towards light of justice.

We the people from different places should have equal rights to voice our concerns. In this digital world we the residents of planet Earth must have equal rights to decide what should be the agenda and reject propaganda. 

Stop and think…

Where was I

In thoughts
in fear
in hearts far and near
in whispers
did you hear?
I was in you
in laughter
in tears
in sighs
in sight
in line
in dot
in dreams
in shots
I was in you
in heart
in soul
we got hot
we got cold
yet death did not take control
I live again..with lots unsaid .untold

Thump

It was so loud

It was too dumb

It made you numb

that thump thump

It will be out

or not we shout

please stop

thump thump thump
