The 19th Organic World Congress 2017 with its august presence & the interesting hullaballoo it raised discussed a few topics of utmost interest & future voyeurism. The congregation did attract a mix of personalities from the higher echelon. I could see & felt pride with the Chief Minister of Sikkim adorning the diocese & then we had the heads including the MD of Temi & tea experts across the world painting the congress-canvas proud.
My bread & butter is bought from the shops of progressional Governance & my profession takes me to far off kingdoms I always consider my own. Temi Tea is one such kingdom that will devour you with the experiences of life to the lees.
The garden spread across the shivalik range brings to you chants from heaven. The produce is organic since the gardens first produced the clonal way back 40 years ago.
The majesty & the majestic aura surrounding the Tea Estate would fill you imaginations & vision leading to blissful chaos of the human senses….
I take pride in being part of the watershed activities the tea estate has witnessed of late.
I take pride in being part of the local tribe & the tea pluckers who will bring joy to you in spheres that are unbounded.
Temi Tea Estate has a pedestal which is innovation oriented. It expects & promises ongoing improvements by the operators. It foresees system changes so that more diversity in organic assurance is normal.
It asks for fairness and empowerment of the weakest and it advocates for true pricing.
The paradigm shift from Organic 2.0 to Organic 3.0 is a change in the culture of the movement and addresses the attitudes of the stakeholders. This was the larger discussion that held people’s attention at the world congress held last week in Delhi.
Temi promises a reform of structures and institutions by all stakeholders and it requires new strategic foci of messaging. It needs the works support to come across as the best estate with all elements the world over
The results of the OWC 2017 main track discussions need a synthesis and guidance on actions to turn this concept into reality.
I & Temi would run for a consensus that we get a synthesis on the main track results in order to facilitate the concerted take home messages for all OWC participants & Temi would be in the vanguard of all activities to boot.
God was kind enough to gift Temi the best of the mundane & heavenly surroundings – to complement & rule the principles of optimization I have seen the baton holders with the managing director of the Tea estate take the main lead —striving to achieve the intents bone to bone.
Thus Temi in the current scenario will try to achieve the overall goal to contribute to solving problems and exploring potentials in order to increase effectiveness, efficiency and productivity of organic farming.
Regularly highlight outstanding innovations and to incentivize organic innovations among researchers, extension agents and practitioners would be a mainstay going forward.
Temi boastingly qualifies on the following criterion fulfillment:
Innovative: are new in their context
Applicability: are applicable to organic farming, processing and trade
Relevant: are relevant for solving real problems or exploring new potentials
Impact potential: have the potential to have a great impact.
For the common pairs of eyes of the larger gathering you would be missing on a pearl if you do not visit the tea estate at least once in your life time. God bless Temi Tea Estate – Way to go.
