can you connect me with Aamir Khan?

February 13, 2009

Before I tell you why I want to get in touch with Aamir, you will have to read this short story (even if it is a repeat) –

There was a farmer who grew award-winning corn. Each year he entered his corn in the state fair where it won a blue ribbon …

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

“How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked.

“Why sir,” said the farmer, “didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.”

I am sure you would be touched by knowing how much aware the farmer is about the connectedness of life – His corn cannot improve unless his neighbor’s corn also improves!

www.RangDe.org will help you in growing good corn … and thereby contribute to the dream of Nobel Peace laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus

But the problem is — not everyone is aware about it … so, I want Aamir Khan (instant connect with the name ‘RangDe’, isn’t it?) to become a ‘social investor’ and write about it on his blog. Can you please help me?!?

Thank you so much! 🙂

350

When 17 schools from Delhi & Gurgaon participated in the Tiger Fest 2009 (organized by http://www.kidsfortigers.org & supported by TCS) on 11th Feb at ‘The Shri Ram School, Vasant Vihar’, I was there to witness the above ‘350‘ formation 🙂

I found the idea of http://www.NewNationalAnimal.com very innovative …

Other interesting competition that I enjoyed watching was the ‘Animal Sounds contest’
