We need Organic just as much as we need a WiFi connection today. What made us realize this was an event we attended recently where the Royal Jadhav Family of Gwalior was set out on a mission to spread awareness and promote Organicproduce through its initiative with the Earth day Network. Gwalior witnessed its first Organic Mela on Saturday, September 26’ 2015 hosted by the Royal Jadhav Family in collaboration with the Earth Day Network.
The fair was set up in the lush gardens of Deo Bagh Palace, one of the best Heritage Hotels of India that houses Architectural treasures within its premises. Deo Bagh with its stunning palaces spread over huge acres of land has been owned and inhabited by Sardar Deorao Bhausaheb Jadhav and is currently presided by his great grandson Sardar Dhananjayrao Deorao Jadhav and Rani Saheba Uma Devi Jadhav who extended their support for Organics and opened the gates of the Beautiful Deo Bagh Palace for the noble cause. Deo Bagh, now a Heritage Hotel under Neemrana still maintains the charm and elegance it once boasted of. The Beautiful Archways, Stunning Cenotaphs, Blooming Gardens and two 17-18th century Maratha temples within the premises took me back in time to the most Glorious of days.
The fair promoted some major Organic Produces which included items like Organic Fabrics, Pickles, Jams, green tea, Chamomile Tea, Soaps, Plant seeds, Health tonics and Honey. The Royal Diner at the Deo Bagh palace also hosted an exclusive Luncheon where each mouth-watering dish in the platter was made out of Organic ingredients only. The banquet had a ravishing Indian cuisine with the most authentic varieties of food from around Madhya Pradesh. The event welcomed delegates from around the world and all over the country!
Visiting the fair it just struck us that we desperately need to go back to Organics not only for our well being but also thinking of the future generations, who might have to deal with all the garbage and depleted resources after us if we do not make amends now!
