I am the founder owner of Shrivedant Foundation in Kenya. The
foundation aims to bring forth the pearls of wisdom from ancient
Indian scriptures. After building a Shiv Temple in Kenya with my
husband, I moved on to fulfil my dream of promoting vegetarianism in
Kenya, hence launched Kenya Vegetarian Club.
I have set up a team of geeks, researchers
and New media professionals who help
me to publish my researched content for
website, mobile, books, journals and
magazines. I also aim to open a university
solely dedicated to Indian scriptures.
Welcome to Vaishali Shah profile.
We have just celebrated the earth day with much fanfare in all parts of
the world. In most places, the idea of conserving nature and protecting
Mother Earth is celebrated once in a year and people disperse after
taking pledges and making vows.
Many forget about them even
before they reach their homes and
until the next year, nothing ever
happens. If you are the type
following the news in the papers
and media, you will agree with
what I am saying.
Of course, there are many people who really get inspired and try and
do something in this direction. Even a small step counts.
But deep within the country, there are so many indigenous people like
the Adivasis of Khondh in Odisha or the women of the Khasi tribe in
Meghalaya who are silently renewing their relationship with mother
earth not because it is earth day or something but because it is their
way of life, something women from these communities have been
doing for thousands of years. The Khondh community celebrates the
seed festival or Bijun Parab just before the arrival of the first rains. The
women collect different varieties of seeds throughout the year and
store them safely from insects, beasts or any such intrusion by mixing
neem paste or using natural fertilizers like lining the basket with cow
dung. During the annual seed festival, they bring out the varieties of
seeds they have saved into the open outside their homes and place
them in the village square. The entire community participates in
rejoicing during the festival with men beating the drums, women
singing songs and children dancing and playing. Those who were
unfortunate and have lost their seeds need not worry; the seeds will
be shared by all the women. What a wonderful spirit of community
sharing and caring.
And they wait, till the signs of rain. Then off they go to scatter the
seeds in the patch of lands and soon the land gives them a rich reward
and thus the cycle continues.
The Khasi tribe which is matrilinear also does something like this.
Women preserve seeds of all varieties for they need wholesome meals
which should include cereals, vegetables, fruits even medicinal plants.
The knowledge that these women possess is amazing. They pass it on
to generations along with the deep reverence for the mountains,
rivers and forests. They are untouched by the guile of the outsiders
and have made their lives simple and closer to the elements.
That is true earth day. Every day
is a celebration. How I wish we
can learn from our cultures and
respect the earth and her
resources with gratitude. The
Beejotsav teaches us just this.
I think its worth sharing this on women’s day that Kenya is truly
delighted to have a lady as High commissioner of India to Kenya, Mrs.
Suchitra Durai. It was my pleasure to meet her in Nairobi at her office
on 7th March 2016.
I was really impressed by her simplicity and
professionalism both completely at ease. It is
also wonderful to know that the Indian
government is taking many new initiatives to
help NRI communities to come closer to
I am also thrilled to be part of this new development and take forward
India Kenya relationship to a greater heights.

Shrivedant Foundation was founded by Vaishali Shah and family in
Kenya. Looking around there is a lot of disharmony and chaos in the
world today; this is because we have moved away from our real
nature which is to be human and have become more materialistic and
self-centred. In our quest for prosperity and in the name of
advancement, we have disregarded rules of nature and have
plundered our environment leading to many problems globally.
We need to fill our hearts with love and compassion and be
empathetic towards nature and other beings. With this in focus,
Shrivedant Foundation undertakes activities like bringing the real
knowledge of Indian scriptures, developing various spiritually
motivational material in practical and rational way to suit today’s
generation, feeding the less privileged, taking care of the environment
by undertaking tree planting on a large scale throughout the country,
encouraging people to move to a vegetarian diet, support farmers to
grow more vegetables for human consumption, working with local
women and self help groups to make them economically independent
and acquaint the world on the glory of Indian culture.
