Sadhu wants Mansanto out of India

  1. ALL GLORIES TO HIS DIVINE GRACE A.C.BHAKTIVEDANTA SWAMI SRILA PRABHUPADA!--Not just this Sadhu,but many others,including myself,dislike MONSANTO and everthing they stand for.There is one minor misconception that is promoted in this short video.The Sadhu points to the big orange carrots and the swollen large califlowers and either states and/or implies that these LARGE vegetables are GMO.They are not.When I travelled to VRINDAVAN,India I myself saw how small the vegetables were--and also saw the small,red carrots that were locally grown.I was at first bewildered.When I remarked to a devotee from England that in Canada our potatoes were huge and our carrots were huge and orange--he jumped to the conclusion--"GMO".Actually the truth is that the vegetables that I grew and consumed in Canada during the 1960's and onwards were 'hybreds'.In other words they are the product of lots of old-fashioned hard work.Breeding.So in the 'old-world' many strains of the older seeds are still grown,while in the 'new-world'people usually purchase seeds that promise 'very high yield'.In other words--the large orange carrots and large swollen califlowers shown in the video are certainly not GMO,but rather just an example of high-yield hybred seeds being grown in India.So the Sadhu and Vaisnavas in India may safely cook and offer these vegetables and not fear the odious effects of 'FRANKENFOODS'. HARE KRSNA & JAI RADHE!
