While addressing the international seminar on ‘Sufalam Prithvi Tatva’ on Sunday, Union Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister, Narendra Singh Tomar said that now is the time when the government and society should come to work together in order to stop the negative impacts on the soil and planet earth.

At present, the entire globe is debating on the significant issue of climate change and its negative effects, for which humans are to be blamed, he added.

The initiative for corrective measures will need to fall to someone. Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi is working to educate the world about the conservation of the five elements of earth, water, fire, wind, and space as well as the Indian philosophy of "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" (the world is a family), he noted.

He further said that it is true that the country produces an abundance of food grains now, but we also need to improve ourselves so that the future is secure and there is harmony with nature. According to Tomar, who also stated that PM Modi is directing the nation toward natural farming, livestock plays a crucial role in organic farming.

Tomar further emphasized that similar to yoga, PM Modi also helped bring awareness to millets' significance across the world. He said that the United Nations had declared 2023 to be the International Year of Millets, with India serving as its chairman, in order to promote nutritional grains throughout the nation and the world.

The fact that India is hosting the G20 this year is also a source of pride for the country, according to Tomar, who also said that this will encourage people throughout the world to consider the concept of 'one earth, one family, one future'.

The Institute of Agriculture Science, Banaras Hindu University, Bhaurao Devras Trust, Bhartiya Kisan Sangh, and Akshya Krishi Parivar collaborated to host Sufalam Prithvi Tatva on Sunday in the Shatabdi auditorium at the BHU campus.

Bhaiyyaji Joshi, a member of the Rashtiya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS) national leadership, emphasized the custom of respecting the five elements—earth, water, fire, wind, and space—and discussed the scientific facets of Indian ideology in his remarks at the ceremony.

The life of the soil and the ground must likewise be remembered by the world, he asserted, saying that India always keeps its doors open to ideas from throughout the world for solutions to the world's problems, which must be given priority.

Various such seminars were held across the country from January 7-8 wherein models, posters, and documentaries were used to showcase the key components of the earth element.

Director of Environment and Sustainable Development Institute, Prof. AS Raghuvanshi, National Organization Minister of Bharatiya Kisan Sangh K Dinesh Dattatreya Kulkarni, All India Gau Sewa Chief Ajit Prasad Mohapatra, Suflam Secretary Prof. Rakesh Singh along with many agricultural scientists and office bearers of farmer's organization were present at the event.
