    Thank you very much for the very clear and wise insights and for referring to happyness as a common base for building friendship and understanding.
    You also talk about exchange and service programs. How would it be possible to participate in such a program or to initiate exchange?

  • पर्यावरणीय गाँव ऐसा गाँव जहा शिक्षा ,स्वास्थ,रक्षा,वृति ,कृषि,पशुपालन,जैविक खेती,फलोउद्यान,आदि हो ।

    यातायात के परंपरागत साधन हो ।पूरँण स्वालम्बी गाँव हो ।

    पूरा विश्व एक परिवार माना जाय ।उसके अनुरुप नियम बने ।प्रत्येक 1000की जनसंख्या पर शिक्षा ,स्वास्थ,सुरक्षा,विज्ञान,कृषि,रोजगार,पशुपालन की व्यवस्था ही इको गाँव हो सकता है ।

    salam aleikum Ousmane, thank you so much for your passionate contribution towards eco-villages and other earth supporting project in many countries in Afrika. And how wonderful your view on Islam. We – specially whites in the west – have such a narrow view of Islam and Moslims. Beautiful the inner jihad! Wish you mountains of energy and support.
