The Reason Behind Actor Rajesh Kumar Quitting Acting Will Make You Appreciate Him

Published on 17 April, 2018 at 2:25 pm By

Playing the role of Mumma’s boy Rosesh Sarabhai in popular comedy show Sarabhai vs Sarabhai, he made everyone laugh with his funny poems and sweet banters with his brother. He has spent close to 19 years of his life in the television entertainment industry. Last year, he was seen in ‘Comedy Dangal’ and ‘Sarabhai vs Sarabhai Take 2’. But now, the actor Rajesh Kumar is up to something completely different!

The actor has quit acting and shifted to his hometown, Barma, in Gaya, located about 125 km from Patna in order to turn it into a “Smart” village. Barma is another dusty village of Bihar that gets excessively heated up during summers, making farming extremely difficult.

 

 

Surprisingly, Barma is one of those extremely under-developed areas of Bihar that did not even have access to electricity until a month ago. It was after Rajesh Kumar persistently followed up the state’s electricity department that his village Barma could avail electricity.

Hence, Rajesh Kumar has initiated ‘zero budget spiritual farming’, a farming technique that does not use any chemical at all and instead involves the use of their organic alternatives. He spent the last two months testing the soil of his 10-acre farm, checking the suitability of climate for various crops and doing extensive research on organic farming. He is also working on setting up Farmer Producer Organisation (FPO) in association with local farmers of Barma.



 

 

The turning point that triggered his interest towards farming and welfare of his hometown came last year. Rajesh told Mumbai Mirror:

“I was sitting under a mango tree, somewhere around here, and that was when it struck me, almost like Buddha’s story. When I visited Barma last year, I couldn’t believe my eyes. My father had converted our ancestral land from a wasteland to one capable of producing a range of vegetables, fruits and crops in just five years — without using any chemicals for the most part.”

 

 

Apart from making his village farms chemical free, Rajesh also wants to change the popular viewpoint that farmers are poor people. He says:

“I want to change that perception. If farmers employ spiritual farming, within five years they would earn at least 40 percent more. Then, they won’t have to go to cities to become drivers and watchmen.”

 

Rajesh Kumar’s story is a very inspiring one! At a time when most of the farming in India is being done with the use of chemicals, which is eventually entering our bodies and making our them vulnerable, we need more people like him who can help farmers switch to organic ways. It would be a win-win situation for both the ends, as farmers’ farmlands will also become more productive and safe from turning barren gradually!
