India’s leading English news channel from Times Network, will raise the bar even higher as Navika Kumar, Managing Editor, holds a forthright discussion with India’s leading spiritual reformer Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev on her show ‘Frankly Speaking’, airing Saturday September 8, 2018 at 7 PM. Kumar will be seen asking pointed questions spanning a range of issues affecting the nation such as women’s right to pray, cow slaughter, sit-in protests and dharnas by politicians, section 377, the unhealthy relationship between politics and religion in our country.

Known for her keen observations and straightforward approach, Navika Kumar does not waste a moment to ask Sadhguru upfront why the nation is witnessing such high levels of discord today. Invoking Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Kumar asks Sadhguru if he still stands by his belief that unbridled activism, in the form of dharnas by politicians, is detrimental to law and order. Without missing a beat, Sadhguru responds, “If you want to become a leader in this country, you don’t have to build anything or make a difference in people’s lives. You just have to gather a 100 people and block the highway, make everybody’s lives miserable for the next three days and you will get elected.” Read more

The project currently covers 164 gram-panchayats including over 90,000 households, impacting around 6 lakh people, in three blocks of Hardoi district in Uttar Pradesh – Kachhauna, Behandar and Kothawanin.

For the agriculture sector, HCL Samuday has created mobilized groups for farmers to increase their income by 25 per cent. These groups are designed to provide in-depth knowledge about scientific farming practices through training programs at every cropping stage. Soil testing with the help of Govt. labs to understand the nutrient value of the soil and calculate the input required, nursery management, integrated pest management, accounting techniques to help farmers take farming as a business, among others are some of the key training programs. HCL Samuday has also introduced novel concepts like Nutrition Garden and Bori Bagicha to help farmers save their household income. Read more
