India Today - - SIMPLY DELHI - by Shilpa Mehta

As you en­ter this small shop, the rows of or­ganic pulses, pas­tas and cereals neatly lined up on their shelves make for a pleas­ing sight. Retailing or­ganic pro­duce, Live Or­ganic is your one- stop­shop for whole­some, nat­u­ral food items. Run by Man­preet Ba­jaj and Ga­gan­deep Singh, the cou­ple pro­cures most of their or­ganic stock from the Kisan Wel­fare Club, which is a group of farm­ers who have been prac­tic­ing or­ganic farm­ing since 1999 at Sonepat. Be­sides cereals, rice, pulses and beans, the prod­ucts avail­able in­clude fruit juices, jams, jel­lies, cook­ies and nat­u­ral skin­care prod­ucts. While the prices are quite steep com­pared to that of con­ven­tional food prod­ucts, the cou­ple as­sures you that their goods are free of the ill- ef­fects of pes­ti­cides. The store also or­gan­ises a weekly mar­ket ev­ery Wed­nes­day at the RGREP Park in Sec­tor 29, where they sell or­ganic fruits and veg­eta­bles.
