Goat farming can be a suitable side business to the declining agricultural income and related problems faced by the farmers in Maharashtra. However, goat farming is not seen as a supplementary industry as the farmers lack scientific knowledge in goat rearing. Realising this, Bhagirath Gram Vikas Pratishthan from Zarap in Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra decided to set up an ultra-modern and well-equipped permanent training centre for Goat rearing and Artificial Insemination. The project has been financed by Precision Camshafts Limited as a part of its CSR.
The project will provide scientific training for goat rearing and artificial insemination to willing farmers. The two-day training programs will impart knowledge in the areas of goat feed, breeding, deworming, medicines for diseases as well as sales arrangements. In commercial goat rearing, goat heat is synchronized exposing all goats to heat at the same time and then carrying out group artificial insemination. This results is breeding kids of the same species which can be sold at a good price. Bhagirath's ultra-modern artificial insemination centre and goat rearing project are adding modernity, science, technology and training to goat rearing.
In the past few years, the use of Plaster of Paris in making Ganesh idols has increased as it is lighter in weight, idols come out more beautiful and is more profitable. However this has created many environmental and health problems. These idols have particularly proved to be hazardous after immersion in the water bodies as these are made of a chemical (Calcium sulphate dihydrate) that does not decompose for many months and is dangerous for the ecosystem of the waterbodies.
Ganesh festival is celebrated in a very big way in Konkan area. Considering this, Bhagirath Gram Vikas Pratishthan from Zarap in Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra took a revolutionary step in making eco-friendly Ganesh idols. They experimented by mixing clay and cow dung (Gomay) as a medium to make the idols. These idols proved to be light in weight, beautiful as well as decomposable on immersion in water.
Bhagirath Pratishthan has developed a training model for making such Gomay Ganesh idols and are training the local artists to use the same. Bhagirath Gram Vikas Pratishthan is thus trying to create a movement for eco-friendly Gomay Ganesh idols. The project was funded by Precision as part of the CSR. Funds were utilised for procuring mixer pots, rolling pins, Ganesh moulds and other materials required for this training. The project is an important step towards environmental protection and conservation.
