Lalit Mohan Sharma, a farmer in Rampur, said that by practicing 'Homa' farming pollution can be controlled to a large extent.
"Earlier in Hindu culture, life used to revolve around Vedas and today he has given a demonstration of 'Homa' farming and also told us that by practicing this technique pollution can be controlled," said Sharma.
The farmers are very delighted to adopt the traditional methods of farming and offering prayers. They believe that the prayers offering will help the farmers to purify the atmosphere and bring timely rainfall to have good crop. By Hemant Chauhan (ANI)
