The Precious Heritage of the People’s Science is Going to Extinction

The human communities had been facing challenges since the unknown time of human history.  In the meanwhile, they had been responding with critical analyses, mature responses, and solid philosophies. Though taking a longer time period (evolution) the results were always easy to understand, interesting to implement and accurate to target the challenge. The people’s science is a great art which is proved by the time and generations.

Lets’ take the health science (people’s health science) as an example. It was absolutely based on the concepts of symbiosis, wellness of all, hot & cold (nature of the product), personal nature, prevailing environments, habitats and landscape (weather, water, air etc) and a long list of things. The Philosophy of Symbiosis and Gut’s Role in Natural Health

The techniques of the people’s science are fortified with the following merits.

  • Free of side effects
  • Symbiotic in nature
  • Local solution (available local)
  • Locally manageable
  • Cheaper in prices (usually free available)
  • No intellectual and proprietary rights
  • No corporate business is involved
  • No problem to the environment.

As a conclusion of the talk, I would expect, the scientists, philosophers, thinkers, policymakers, educationist, and politicians to consider this precious part of science. The modern era is forcing this precious heritage of people’s science towards extinction. It is the utmost need of time to give proper place to people’s science so that the modern ideas go hand in hand with the proven science of the communities.

Farmers Hardship Under the Establishment’s Eyes

Camel, food security and climate change

This year (2017), we noticed a stinging acceleration in the prices of certain agricultural commodities like Onion (from the June until now) and tomato (September to date) in Pakistan. During the same period, such products remained at the lowest prices in India. The higher prices of these commodities in Pakistan were because of the closure of the Durand Line, the weathering extremities, and the higher demand for those items.

Who Suffer

The Farmer in India & Afghanistan and the consumer in Pakistan

One can see interesting but annoying pictures throughout in the region on the internet. In India, the farmer throwing the tomato and onion on the roads as a show of anger, while the people in Pakistan are struggling to manage tomato and onion for family use.

Less Consumption is the Best Solution

Eating Less and Adaptation to Slow Food

The idea of ‘eating less and adaptation of slow food pattern’ need to be supported and promoted. The more we consume, the more is the hike in problems (warming, poor health, and other catastrophes). Such problems and climate change are very much linked with the quantity, quality, and pattern of consumption, in all ways from food to energy.People’s Animal Agriculture and Low Carbon Livestock

The Values of Life Must be Discussed Again

The values of life we have accepted to be true since decades need to be analyzed and discussed again. I have been challenging those values. An endless growth is not possible (how big we can be?) with finite resources and a finite capacity of our earth to store carbon and tolerate heat. Endless growth is not possible when it makes those most vulnerable suffer (the small scaled rural farmer) even more when it undermines the social system. We do not only need to transition from fossil fuels to renewable energies but we have to change our perspective on our energy consumption and even feeding the habit.

The Peoples’ Agriculture is the Solution

Let’s promote people’s agriculture and respect the values and knowledge of the communities (their knowledge is sound as evolved since unknown ages, in tune environmental conditions and the consumers’ demands) and to involve them in research and development policies.

People and Animal Agriculture~The Philosophy of the Low Carbon Livestock

I love the concept of the people’s agriculture and intelligence. Here are some great pictures for your eyes, my precious reader. The people agriculture is low carbon livestock. The pictures tell how useful and sustainable is such type of husbandry. It is raised locally and consume locally, the great job the people doing.

I found a very useful link to a blog from my friend page, it will be very informative for those who are the beginners in the people’s agriculture Low carbon livestock.

Food for Thought

The climate change along with growing desertification consequence in the adoption of new strategies, for the native livestock keepers’, adaptation is the best tactic. Unfortunately, the so called policy makers are not that much in tune as the rural indigenous people of the bush are. These sensible livestock keepers know how to materialize livestock agriculture sustainably as; to satisfy versatile requirements of the owner/community and ensure its own life whereas depending on available natural resources (the people wisdom).

The Wise Strategy

The strategies adopted by the native/indigenous people are highly useful to guarantee sustainable farming systems under climate change scenario. Their knowledge is based on centuries’ long experience and evolved with the natural phenomena; making it the treasurable heritage of humanity. They evolve their practice/systems in tune with the prevailing conditions, availability of the natural resources and the consumers demand their products to judicially use the livestock genetic resources. The native livestock keepers deserve the right place and share in the research and development strategies adapted for the agriculture sector of a country.

Good News as the People’s Agriculture is Rebirthing in Western Europe

Imagine the villagers/people who keep their animals as the companion and member of the family. Such culture is still sustaining if not thriving in Africa, Asia, and South America.

But here is another good news, the migrants coming from the peoples’ agricultural background are rebirthing the people’s agriculture. Their rural background bringing a positive change in the forgotten rural regions of the Europe.

Migrants are incredible
The migrants are doing their dream job in western Europe

In the link provided below, is the story of the migrants who are contributing in livestock agriculture in the Spanish ViciedoRoom in the middle: the Africans repopulating Spain’s dying villages

Cultures must survive and resist the fast changing world. One of the main cultures of humankind is agriculture. I wanna remind that factory farming is not agriculture. Do you agree?

Wars are not Grown Naturally

Wars are not grown naturally like plants but engineered by some greedy minds and war mongers to steal the diverse types of resources, both in kind and value. In short, war is a milking cow for ill minds and greedy bellies.

Mankind in despair
The planet was green, the plants and the animal kingdom grew in a symbiotic environment. The human being was dragged into greed. They made groups, borders, weapons, and armies to satisfy their greed (of a diverse kind). The weaker and poor communities and the people are the sufferers.
