Surya Prakash Vinjamuri - MyFoodStory in India?
- Dear Surya Prakash Vinjamuri,
I am glad to have learned of you through Pamela McLean. I lead the Minciu
Sodas laboratory http://www.ms.lt for serving and organizing independent
thinkers around the world. Currently, we are working for Greg Wolff of
UnaMesa Association to start http://www.myfoodstory.com, "a wikipedia for the
world's food supply chain". I note your work "To Protect Life & Promote
Health". Perhaps you would be interested to participate? We have some
modest funding for six teams and we might possibly have one for India. We're
interested, for example, in the work of Stan Thekaekera and his colleagues on
community-to-community barter at http://www.justchangeindia.org I invite
you to join our working group at
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/socialagriculture/ please send a blank message
to firstname.lastname@example.org to subscribe
Thank you for your important work for India and all of our world!

>Kim & Friends,
>I like to share about my work & the situation I live in -
>/* "Couple aspiring to become pregnant are coming to our clinic > their
>wish is being heard and they are blessed with a child > child grows and
>some reason gets deviated and lands in a situation where in there is
>nobody to take care > with power bestowed on us in implementation of
>Child Care & Protection Act we are able to take care of them and give
>them direction > Meanwhile whoever comes for clinical help we are able
>to guide them and treat them, at times save lives > As women moves into
>her menopause we are able to back them up and improve their quality of
>life > People who are aged and who are residing in our area are
>personally taken care and we are able to meet their basic needs.*/
>/*While all the above situations and interventions are going on, one
>thing which is standing out is our approach to food -- from production
>i.e. from protecting farmers who produce food to attending to people who
>are hungry (which is done through open house) is what we are able to do.
>All these activities are carried out with thorough reflection on Life,
>which is done under banner - Life-Dialogue"
>With rapid urbanisation in villages & cities - process lost its space,
>where in service is understood as responding to demands - with sort of
>population explosion & inadequate public infrastructure & increase in,
>for profit private sector - service with a process based appoach has
>less space for understanding.
>The expectation from the society is mostly to responding to their
>medical demands rather than understanding /" how they could play major
>role in preventing themselves from situations of deviance of physical
>health, mental trauma & indebtedness". /
>Friends what I like to submit here is that, most of my work doesnt fall
>under any 'fundable category/ies'. As I see unless they understand
>interconnectedness of my various activities, it is unethical for me to ask.
>Friends, I see their is need to have dialogue on this & I see our work
>is a good case study for the people who thread a " road less travelled"
>& help how we can /ask, /to move forward.
