Soil has a very strong connection with us, knowing no nationality, no religion, the aroma of the soil leaves everyone spellbound equally. Fate and the journey takes us somewhere on the path of success but most of the times, our passion gives us a by-line ‘so & so by profession and so & so at heart.’ So resonating for many. Lucky are the times that now we get plenty opportunities and acceptance to pursue our passion, into profession, without qualification. Who needs qualification when you live your passion every day.
