pesticide - free village

the overuse of pesticides and the deleterious effect it is having on rural communities (mainly) and urban consumers is well known.

Penta Srirampuram in Andhra Pradesh is showing the way forward.
the beauty of all this is in its simplicity.
de-complexing the human actions (aka - "do nothing") is the solution.

now the connections:
1. i worked for 1 year in 1995-96 in a chemical plant making Penta erythritol. (2 connections - chemicals and Penta)
2. the surname of the village bears close resemblance to my alter-ego.
