The history of food, especially in the Indian context, will be left incomplete without giving due importance to millets.Even until 50 years ago millets was the major grain grown in India. From a staple food and integral part of local food cultures, just like many other things,  millets have come to be looked down upon by modern urban consumers as “coarse grains” millets have been mentioned in some of the oldest Yajurveda texts, identifying foxtail millet (priyangava), Barnyard millet (aanava) and black finger millet (shyaamaka), thus indicating that millet consumption was very common.
This seminar will highlight the importance of re instating the traditional practices of Cow based agriculture by growing the Millets,
“Experts warn us that Climate Change will confront us with three challenges”
* Increase in temperature between two and five degrees celsius
* Increased water stress
* Severe malnutrition
And how the millets have the capacity to meet these challenges.
And also highlights the Philosophy of Simple “living and high thinking” which is the instruction of our Founder Acharya Srla Prabhupada.
Simplicity starts with simplifying our Food, Simplifying the food means taking millets in to  our life.
