Greening The Grey

Expanding The Green Revolution

By william dar & ARUN TIWARI

A modern classic with over 30 reprints selling over a million copies and translated into 18 languages

Boosting food security and ensuring the small cultivator s proper access to and a fair deal in the market have been the key areas of William Dar s work as scientist, policymaker and administrator. The author, a farmer s son , says he chose to read agronomy at university because the science that explains the sprouting of seeds and growing of crops … was almost hard-wired in me . 

Feeding the Forgotten Poor is an autobiography in which personal reminiscences serve as a vehicle for voicing concern for the disprivileged. It takes up large issues and draws attention to orphan crops and hidden hunger . Noting that more than one billion of the world s seven billion people go hungry or are malnourished, the book critically examines the political, economic and environmental issues to which contemporary agriculture is closely tied tariffs and farm subsidies, water pollution, biofuels, the prospects and problems of genetically modified organisms, the growing backlash against mechanised agriculture and increasing support for sustainable practices. 

Arun Tiwari has a combination of modern education and traditional spiritual upbringing, which he lends aptly to his writing. He is compassionate and so his words convey kindness. This is not merely a task of authorship but a devoted worship of the Gita..”


– Mahamahopadhyaya Sadhu Bhadreshdas
(Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Sanstha (BAPS))

Arun Tiwari, through this book has proved quite brilliantly that Hinduism is a self-perpetuating religion, which shows the way of constant spiritual reinterpretation leading to life which is self-perpetuating, self-renewing and which for the individual and for the world may be eternal. Reflection and self-correction is woven into our DNA. Our freedoms reside within us.”

Dr Vijay Bhatkar (Chancellor, Nalanda University)
