I would like to share a story today.
About a wonderful initiative by my parents Dr Nitin Deodhar and Dr Meenakshi Deodhar.
Almost a decade back, my father developed an interest in farming. Interest would be an understatement. It became his passion. And then he systematically set about achieving it.
At age 45, he used to drive down 6 hours from Pune every week to acquire cultivable land in Ratnagiri district along the Konkan belt.
After he acquired land, he spent weeks away from his family, staying alone on barren land with noone familiar, trying to get to know the people, the soil, the market and most importantly, the science
Slowly but surely, he began shaping his dream of having his own farm. The seeds of toil were planted, watered and cared for.
My mother soon realised that this was not just a passing phase, or a ‘midlife project’ as I would jokingly call it then.
So at age 50, both my parents quit their jobs and a comfortable life in Pune, and left for a small village called Tetavli. My dream was always to work just enough so that I could relax in my 50s. So it was no surprise that this decision left me puzzled.
Over the next few years my parents experimented with organic farming, horticulture, and in the process also generated employment and opportunities. I wouldn’t say we’re there yet but it’s a work in progress
So I cannot be more proud to share their new venture:
