In today’s modern era, people are eager to live a comfortable and comfortable life. Most husbands and wives want to live a modern life, where they get everything at their fingertips. There will hardly be a few people who still like village life and imagine living a traditional life. The peace and purity that exists in the traditional life of the village can never be attained in the run-up and pollution of cities.
One thing is also that gradually the trend of youth is increasing towards farming. People are now taking the initiative to live in the village environment and live a natural life. There are many people who are getting fed up with the chaos of the city, wanting to live in rural areas, close to nature. And such efforts are setting an inspiring example for others as well.
Today we are going to talk about a couple who have said goodbye to the dazzling heavy life of the cities and are determined to live in the village. Their name is Anjali Rudraraju Kariyappa and Kabir Karaippa. Both of them left their city life and started an initiative to live in the village and live naturally by doing organic and traditional farming. Together, the two have established a large farm in Halasuru village of Kote taluka near Mysore city in Karnataka. The name of this farm is “Yerrowe Farm”. In a way, they have established a whole natural world of their dreams, not just one form. They consume pure grains and vegetables from here and they have devoted their entire life to that farm.
Talking of Kabir, his childhood was spent in the fields. He grew up in the fields. If we call Kabir a second-generation farmer, it will not be wrong. their parents, Julie and Vivek Cariappa Practicing organic farming for almost three decades. At the same time, Kabir was also educated at home by his parents. Kabir saw only organic farming from childhood and he never came to know about any other farming.
On the other hand, if we talk about Anjali, then Anjali has been in the urban environment from the beginning. He graduated in management from Hyderabad and then received a master’s degree from New York. Apart from this, she has also worked in the field of financial service in New York for almost a decade. But gradually his tendency towards nature grew and he decided to say goodbye to the corporate sector. In 2010, she quit her job and returned to the country. He started a small scale organic farming with his family. It was difficult for Anjali initially as she had no experience with it. Anjali toured all over India especially the ‘rural’ areas. During this time he felt very comfortable and happy himself.
After that, both of them together with established this form. There is a safer and better environment to live here than in a city. Here he taught organic farming to the people of the village and also hired them. Kabir and Anjali have managed a 50-acre farm with the help of about seven others. Here they try to develop everything they need and consume in everyday life. In addition, they also produce some things that are in good demand in the market. All these crop vegetables they grow in a completely natural environment in an organic way, the quality of which is no answer.
The crops grown on the farm mainly include sugarcane, cotton, mustard, sesame, sunflower and groundnut, besides grains like ragi, millet, sorghum, foxtail, rice and wheat. Pulses include all types of lentils, moong, lentils, pigeon pea etc. and spices like turmeric, ginger, chillies, coriander, fenugreek. Apart from this, one to one fresh and organic fruits and vegetables are produced in his farm.
They get all the things they need from their farm. They only have to buy salt, pasta, surf-soap and fuel from the market. Apart from this, fresh fruits and vegetables are sent every week from his Yerroway farm to the markets of the nearby cities of Mysore and Bangalore.
Anjali and Kabir Kariyappa are an example in front of society. While their 100% organic lifestyle promotes farming on one hand, it also encourages us to live an organic life.
