Activities in City

Go-Gram Yatra

City dwellers are ignorant about the difficulties of farmers and the villages and the cows living with them. Also the village based activities of Goseva Parivar cannot be understood without them seeing it with our own eyes. The Go-Gram Yatras are meant to serve both the needs.

Almost every month a whole day trip to a village in Keshiary Block of West Midnapore, West Bengal is organized, where the participants bear the cost of the trip. An interactive session is held with the villagers to understand their situation and the results of the initiatives taken by Goseva Parivar through Farmers’ Training, Biogas Plant, Tree Plantation, Rain-water harvesting, Cow-donation etc.

Benefits:

  • It is learning experience with fun
  • Better understanding about the activities of Goseva Parivar
  • Empathy with villages, farmers, Cows and Nature
  • Realise the importance of villages in our life.
  • Encourages the farmers as they feel connected with the outside world
  • Creates bonding amongst the members of Goseva Parivar

Achievement: More than 500 people have participated so far in such trips.

Next target: To continue such trips and increase the numbers.

Go-shala Darshan

City dwellers do not get an opportunity to see Go-Mata (Mother Cow). This activity is to bring the city dwellers closer to Mother Cow and develop empathy towards the agony of Go-Mata. The younger generation also find it a fascinating experience. Youngsters join this activity in good numbers.

Go-Gras Collection

There is an old tradition in Hindu households to offer the first Roti made in the house to Gomata (Mother Cow). Nowadays cities are not congenial for Gomata, therefore City Dwellers are unable to feed their first roti (Go-Gras) to Gomata. Therefore GosevaParivar arranged to collect such Go-Gras from households and send them to Goshalas.

A collection box is installed in each housing society/complex where individual households deposit their Go-Gras. A vehicle goes around collecting the Go-Gras everyday and deliver  it to Gomata at the Goshala.

Benefits:

  • Keep the tradition of Go-Gras alive
  • Reach out to a large number of people
  • Promotion of Go-products
  • Promotion of Go-literature
  • Spread the knowledge about Gomata through our periodical newsletters.

Achievement: We started this service in 2016 and till date we have touched 1500+ households of Kolkata.

Next target: We wish to cover all the housing societies of Kolkata

Go-Products Promotion

There are several products, based on panchagavya (gobar, gomutra, doodh, dahi, ghee), that have been developed over centuries that have proved useful and effective. In addition to these, farmers trained by Goseva Parivar are making dhoop, manjan, face-pack, gonyle, gobar-kanda for yagya and many more such indigenous products. Most of the people are unaware about the benefits, usefulness and availability of these products. We try to fulfil this gap by promoting the same.

We promote these products in our monthly satsang and kirtan, to Go-Gras and Govats members and through stalls at several religious programs.

Benefits:

  • Increases demand for Panchgavya
  • Makes non-milking cow, sustainable and profitable.
  • City people get healthy and pure products
  • Goshalas get resources to maintain Mother Cows

 

Achievement: We have been able to create awareness among the people about these products and more than 1000 households in Kolkata use them regularly.

Next target: We want to take this to 2000 households this year.
