“Life is also as important as marriage” – Suttur Sri

Suttur, Jan. 17, 2021: “How a couple lives after the wedding is more important than how they get married,” opined His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Shivarthri Deshikendra Mahaswamiji.
He participated in the monthly mass marriage program organised by the Sutturu Srimath, on Sunday. In his blessings, he said, “it is a coincidence that 21 couples are tying the knot today in the first month of the new year. It is a good sign. In Indian culture, weddings have a cultural frame. A man should live as society likes. Couples should understand each other and lead a peaceful life. Rather than being just rich, a man should possess a mindset of sharing his wealth with others, and for others’ welfare. Smt. S.R. Gayathri, of Mysuru, is one such human being with a good heart. She has donated essential things to the newly wedded couples in this mass marriage program. The government is also contributing to the mass marriage programs conducted here. The real purpose of this mass marriage program is saving your money and preventing inessential expenses,” he explained.
In his introductory speech, Udigala Kumaraswamy explained that the mass marriage program, which was supposed to be held during the 2021 Suttur Jatra Mahotsav couldn’t be arranged due to the COVID-19 pandemic and hence only the monthly mass marriage programs are being held in Sutturu. “Mangalya, saree, toe ring, shirt, dhoti, and vallis are being given to the couples free of cost as usual by the Srimath. People should make good use of it,” he said.
Sri Ishaprasada Swamiji of Jnanayogashrama of Vijayapura gave the pledge to the newly wedded couples. Smt. Lakshmi, daughter of one of the donors Smt. Gayathri, Sri Mahadevaswamy, Joint Director, Technical Education Division, JSS Mahavidyapeetha, and Duggahatti Sri P.

Two-day training for school teachers on ‘Importance of Agriculture in School Education’

Suttur, Jan. 05, 2021: There are ample opportunities to retain youth in villages and develop agriculture. It has become inevitable to provide opportunities for school children to learn about agriculture through school syllabus. In this context, the ICAR JSS Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Suttur, had organised a two-day training programme titled ‘Importance of Agriculture in School Education,’ for school teachers of Mysuru District, with an objective of making agriculture an interesting and skill-oriented subject.

Divya, Scientist, Seed Technology, JSS KVK who participated in the training programme explained that about 73% of the children in our country hail from rural areas. Despite providing free clothes, midday meals, books, etc., 53% of girl children are dropping out of schools before reaching 9 years of age. “If we notice this, we can find that this is happening because of not making education interesting to the children. Isn’t it wise to introduce subjects related to agriculture, horticulture, dairy farming, sericulture, and agriculture-related subjects to these students who hail from farmers’ families? We can make education more attractive through this,” she said.

Pallavi H.M., Assistant Professor, Horticulture College, Yelwala, explained that many students are dropping out of agricultural degree courses after PUC, and diploma courses after SSLC due to various reasons and are engaging in agricultural activities. Such candidates can avail skill-based training courses. She also explained that there are ample job opportunities for agriculture students in the Agriculture Department, NGOs, Private Companies, Banks, Universities, etc. She also requested the teachers to provide required guidance to the students who are interested in this.

Netravathi Yettinamani, In-house Scientist, JSS KVK, spoke about the development and maintenance of kitchen garden in schools and terrace organic farming. Sri Ganesh, the subject speaker suggested developing kitchen gardens in government schools that have space.
Sri Gangappa Hipparagi, Field Manager, JSS KVK showed various demonstrating units maintained by JSS KVK including vermicompost, goshale, agriclinic, food processing unit, pot making unit and nursery to the participants and explained them about its functions.

About 28 teachers of various schools of Mysuru District took part in the training programme. On the occasion, they pledged to create awareness among the students about agriculture as a subject by developing orchards on the school premises.
