A crash course in changing the world.
I was really scratching my head for something real to comply ACT5. Just at that moment, Ramu, our mobile green grocer owner rang the door bell. He sells vegetables to the door step of this locality He grows a part of vegetables that he sells from the small piece of land that he owns in nearby village. I enquired about the variety that he is using presently. These are mainly local varieties with low yield potential. I thought if I can use improved varieties of vegetable seed as an alternate currency, his output may be enhanced from the same piece of land. First I thought of hybrid varieties. Then I thought it will make him dependent on me. So I decided to give him small quantity of disease resistant OP (open pollinated) variety of tomato and brinjal. It will at least double his farm output from the present level. So I entered into an agreement with Ramu that he will return double the quantity of seed next year which I will distribute to two farmers. I hope it will open up a chain reaction and help reach many vegetable vendors in my locality. Beside I hope it will open up a new alternative currency also.
