My name is SHIVA CHOPRA, I work in Entertainment Industry in Mumbai from last 15 years. Due to Pandemic scenario since 2020, there is very less and selective work (shooting) is happening in our film industry, because we can’t work from home as we have to go on field and shoot our projects. In Maharashtra Covid cases are on the rise so I am planning to shift to Bhopal (M.P.) with my family. Because without any work it is almost impossible to survive in Mumbai, as you know this is the most expensive city in terms of Rent, Food and for Survival in India.
Few years back in my good times when everything was going fine, i brought a small farmland in Bhopal. Now I am planning to start an Organic farming on my farmland and start my family livelihood from the scratch. I started this as a hobby now I want to take it further. Firstly, I will start building my tiny cob(mud) house only with Mud, Lime, Clay, Straw, Bamboo and Cow dung, you may be thinking why cob house? Because its eco-friendly, low cost and will take only 2 months to build. For cob house I will not buy anything new will try to use as much as used materials (2nd hand) for my door and windows. Before this coming monsoon I want to start my farming and finish with my cob house construction.
My planning is to grow Organic Vegetable, I have already spoken to some local shopkeepers who will buy my vegetables. I will surely make some YOUTUBE videos on my channel to guide people about few important steps about framing and how to build Cob house. In future whatever I will grow from my land I will donate some percentage of vegetables to the needy people. And who so ever donate me can come and stay with my family in my cob house and be my guest, it will totally be a different experience all together, aspiring farmers can come and learn and experience organic farming also I am always game to learn if someone can come and teach me more about farming. Let’s be together for each other in these hard times. I appreciate the support more than you know.
HOPE IS THE ESSENCE OF THE HUMANITY.
AND I AM HOPEING THAT I WILL GET SOME
HELP FROM YOU IN THIS TIME OF NEED.
