Mr. Mahendra Moga, a resident of Jodhpur, Rajasthan is a farmer by profession with an affinity towards social work and yoga. Recently he spoke about his experiences via an interview which has been given below.
Interviewer : Mr. Moga can you tell us something about your educational and professional journey so far ?
Mr. Moga: I am an alumni of Hanwant Aadarsh Vidya Mandir, Lal Sagar, Jodhpur Rajasthan. After completion of my schooling I did my B.Ed from JNVU University, Jodhpur in 2011. Now I am one of those who is farming the famous pomegranates of Jodhpur.
Interviewer : What is the reason behind taking up farming as a profession?
Mr. Moga: I am aware nowadays most of the youth don't like to call themselves ‘farmers’ and do not show much interest towards this profession but it is the backbone of our country. It feeds our vast population and sustains our economy. What is required in the present scenario is a new approach towards this profession. Qualified youths armed with scientific knowledge can breathe in fresh life into the age old tradition. Use of new tools and technologies can lead to better production in both quality and quantity of the yield. With this thought process I came into this profession.
Interviewer : Tell us something about your social work.
Mr. Moga : Since our school days social service has been an important part of our education. I have been associated with various kinds of social work since I was in class 6. Presently for the last few years I have mainly been concentrating on organisation of blood donation camps. I am a regular blood donor and know its importance towards saving lives.
Another major part of my life is the practice of Yoga. I got to know about it's multitude positive impacts on the human mind, intellect and body when I was at school and later in the year 2004, I joined ‘Art of Living’ to further my education on the subject. I frequently provide my services at relief centers and try to help them through yoga and pranayam.
Interviewer : Would you like to give any message to your school?
Mr. Moga : I would only like to express my gratitude towards my school for teaching me to live a life of discipline and service. I also request the authorities to give more importance to English language, as it will help to equip the students better to compete in the modern global economy.
