Home-made fertilizers for your garden

Fertilizers enhance the productivity of food items grown in your farm or garden. When chemical fertilizers are used they can spoil the natural qualities of soil and water. They consists of synthetic substances containing nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium in higher concentration. These Chemical fertilizers work very fast but they cause adverse effects on plants as well as end products. Over fertilizing can burn the leaves or attract unwanted pests due to rapid growth of plants.


How to keep your environment clean

Famous artist Marina Abramovic has rightly quoted that, “We are used to cleaning the outside house, but the most important house to clean is yourself - your own house - which we never do”. Cleanliness is not the responsibility of any country’s government alone. Every individual should consider it as his/her prime duty and take proper actions for maintaining it. It is a good thing that many organizations and institutions are supporting our Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi’s campaign called “Swatch Bharat Abhiyan”. Schools and colleges are promoting cleanliness by conducting various activities like essay competition, drawing contests, elocution contest on cleanliness. Students are encouraged to clean their school premises, classrooms, labs etc. At many places school staff along with students are travelling to nearby villages and localities to make people aware about cleanliness. They are also helping villagers in waste segregation and in setting up waste management systems.
