Derek Wall visits Basudha

Please see Erratum above...

Derek Wall is the Principal Male Speaker of the Green Party of England and Wales, and recently visited my friend Debal Deb at his agricultural biodiversity research and conservation center (called Basudha, Bengali for Earth-Mother) in West Bengal, India.

Apparently Debal was as inspirational for Derek as he has been for me. Derek blogged an account of his visit to Basudha and quoted at length from my article that appeared on this blog last fall.

Read Derek's post about Debal and Basudha on his blog Another Green World.

And the post from this blog about my visit with Debal: Agricultural biodiversity conservation in West Bengal.

Sorry Josh, you got it all wrong. Derek never visited Basudha. We never met anywhere, ever. Please correct this error in your next blog entry.
Derek's knew about Basudha from your blog. Then he dug into our centre's web site, and downloaded a few of my papers, and formed his opinion about my work... It was a delightful surprise indeed to discover an unknown person write so passionately about my work.
