Sadhguru is the founder of the Isha Foundation, a non-profit and spiritual organization. Starting Tuesday, he is leading a motorcycle rally from Talacauvery, the origin of the Cauvery river in Karnataka, culminating in Chennai. Around 3500 km would be covered. The aim of the 'Cauvery Calling' rally is to seek public support for the conservation of the Cauvery river. The Isha Foundation has set a target of planting 242 crore trees in the Cauvery basin, thereby revitalizing the river itself and improving the lives of millions of farmers. The focus would be on motivating farmers to switch from water-intensive crops to agroforestry. Basically, Agroforestry implies the practice of growing fruit or timber trees along with full-time crops or on a full-fledged basis.
Your vision to make Jal Shakti Abhiyan a people's movement to #FREEINDIAOfWaterCrisis is truly commendable. As we start this journey from Talacauvery today, we look forward to your support to #CauveryCalling to revitalize this lifeline for millions. -Sg @PMOIndia @narendramodi pic.twitter.com/9O8tSRsLpe— Sadhguru (@SadhguruJV) September 3, 2019
