Mr vijayrams self portrait
Here is one of my friends a businessman and what can one expect of a business person but for bargains profits and losses and some calculations.
I was just travelling with one of my friends in hyderabad and this friend of mine one Mr Madhav asked me if I would like to meet somebody sweet. I said meeting ppl is something very interesting. Madhav said ok then here I present you Shri M. Vijayram an artist by taste and conservationalist by activism and a businessman by profession.
The shop is spanky clean with no out of the place items. It is just perfect and I ask him what is it that makes me comfortable entering the shop. Madhav answers wait theres more to come. The emarald sweets is a one of its kind shop that uses no flavoury synthetics but natural ingredients for taste. I look behind the counter for something which has been capturing my imagination and aaah its a painting oops I forgot to tell you Vijay is a painter and he uses painting just to further the cause of environment and just environment. The painting portrays gandhiji and the greenery and the mother earth….
A man with a neat beard walked up to us and said Namaste. We wished him back and here goes the story…..
Mr Vijay started the shop in 2000 but has been in the environmental conservation and awareness programmes for a while. His organisation S.A.V.E ( SOCIETY FOR AWARENESS & VISION ON ENVIRONMENT ) has been making headways into schools, collages and apartment societies, collonies etc,. Infact he sponsors recharge pits for Ground water conservation and hold your breath he has sponsored and personally attended the operations of 370 animals that have been affected by the plastic consumption (so next time you throw plastic out beware). He is on his way campaigning the cause of mother earth. He has now on hand campaign for Husaien sagar the lake at the heart of the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad thast a dumping place for industrial and domestic wastes, Sewerage. The lake once used to be the source of drinking water to the people around.
