the English who took political control.

Indira Gandhi, was prime minister from 1966-1977 and then again from 1980 until her assassination in

INTERACTIVE LANGUAGE STUDY
LEARN AND EXPLORE …..

Learning a foreign language takes time and dedication.

When you move to a different country or region, learning the local language will help you to communicate and integrate with
the local community.

Many English speakers seem to believe that whenever you go on holiday you can get away by speaking English, so there's no
point in learning any other language. If people don't understand you, all you have to do is speak slowly and turn up the
volume. However, if you want to venture beyond such places, to get to know the locals, to read signs, menus, etc, knowing the
local language is necessary.

Hindi is an Indo-Aryan language with about 545 million speakers, 425 million of whom are native speakers. It is one of the
official languages of India and is the main language used in the northern states of Rajasthan, Delhi, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Uttar
Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand and Bihar, and is spoken in much of north and central
India alongside other languages such as Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi or Bengali. In other parts of India, as well as in Nepal,
Bangladesh and Pakistan, Hindi is understood, and there is a significant number of Hindi speakers in South Africa, Mauritius, Fiji,
Suriname, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago and Nepal. In Fiji people of Indian origin speak Hindi, and in some areas the Fijian
people also speak it.

Hindi first started to be used in writing during the 4th century AD. It was originally written with the Brahmi script but since the 11th
century AD it has been written with the Devanāgarī alphabet. The first printed book in Hindi was John Gilchrist's Grammar of the
Hindoostanee Language which was published in 1796.
CONT….


A basic ability to know HINDI language will help you to 'get by', i.e. to order food and drink, find your way
around, buy tickets, etc. If you have a more advanced knowledge of the language, you can have real
conversations with the people you meet, which can be very interesting and will add a new dimension.
We cordially would like to invite you to join our program and enrich your life experience.

NATURE WITH ORGANIC FARMING

The world is going BACK TO NATURE and this program is aimed at giving

Back to Nature what we slowly and surely destroyed with excessive industrialization.

Organic or Herbal farming involves using natural techniques to yield good and healthy crops by methods which do not harm the natural environment or
the people who live in, work on and consume the produce.

Over the years Botanicals and other natural products have been substituted by wholly synthetic drugs, food additives, chemical dyes, pesticides, and
other man made products. This trend has been somewhat reversed in the late 20th Century, as shown by expanding interest in organic farming
methods .This renewed focus consists of rediscovery and re-evaluation of our pre- industrial herbal heritage, along with new interest in beneficial plants
as renewable, biodegradable, and less-toxic resources.

participant knowledge of various plants grown and their nutritive and medicinal values.

removal of weeds, mixing of manure to selection of seeds / saplings, sowing, watering, caring and pest control and even picking and packing of the

BANARAS
“BENARAS is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together"
quoted Mark Twain . “Varanasi” as it is now renamed is an experience in itself. It is the HOLY CITY on the banks of the river Ganges,
the oldest city in India and one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities of the world.
The morning sun shimmering across the Holy Ganges, the high banks lined with temples and shrines, the soul stirring hymns, the
fragrance of Incense lingering in the atmosphere, the scores of devotees thronging the shores for a refreshing dip to cleanse them
of their sins …… Breathtaking is the only word to describe this city.
However it is only natural that amidst this ancient society breed several social problems arising from racism, sexism, superstition and
conflict between old and new. So arises the need for Social welfare and this is our program. Social Welfare concerned with
