HAR KOI ENGINEER YA DOCTOR BANEGA TOH ANAJ KAUN UGAYEGA, HUMME GARV HAI KI HUM ANAJ UGATE HAI

If everyone become an engineer or doctor, then who will grow crops, we feel proud that we grow crops“….said the farmer , who was waiting for the rain to come.

There is no second thought in the fact that a farmer plays an important role our life.

The emotions that we have about ” MAA KE HAATH KA KAHANA” to ” RESTAURANT KA FAMOUS FOOD”, everything is directly or indirectly connected to farmers.

ALas!  this community of the society is one of the most suffered community in India.

Slow agricultural growth is a concern for policymakers as some two-thirds of India’s people depend on rural employment for a living. Current agricultural practices are neither economically nor environmentally sustainable and India’s yields for many agricultural commodities are low. Poorly maintained irrigation systems and almost universal lack of good extension services are among the factors responsible. Farmers’ access to markets is hampered by poor roads, rudimentary market infrastructure, and excessive regulation.” — World Bank: “India Country Overview 2008

Needless to say agricultural in India is in the state of distress.The green revolution, which is often characterized by the introduction of high-yielding variety of seeds and fertilizers, undoubtedly increased the productivity of land considerably. But the growth in the productivity has been stagnant in recent years, resulting in a significant decline in the income of farmers. There have also been negative environmental effects in the form of depleting water table, emission of greenhouse gases, and the contamination of surface and ground water. Needless to say, the agriculture sector is in a state of distress, which is severely affecting peasants and marginal farmers, and urgent policy interventions are required to protect their interests.

Major barrier is the scarcity of two major resources for agriculture :- cultivable land and water

Another barrier is boosting farm productivity is the lack of new technologies and major breakthroughs. While the National Agriculture Research System played a major role in the green revolution, in recent years there hasn’t been any major breakthrough in research. One of the main reasons for this is the lack of financial resources.

Food is essential for life. We depend on agricultural outputs for our food requirements. India produces large quantity of food grains such as millet, cereals, pulses, etc.
So, as a responsible citizen of our nation we must take steps to protect our agriculture and help farmers.
now the question arises:

How can we help the farmers who are sitting miles away from us?

The answer is:
DO NOT WASTE FOOD, EAT AS MUCH REQUIRED, EAT WHAT YOU CAN CONSUME, THE MONEY IS YOURS BUT THE RESOURCES BELONG TO SOCIETY, THERE ARE MANY OTHERS IN THE WORLD, WHO ARE FACING SHORTAGE OF RESOURCES.

And above all pray:
ANNADATA SUKHIBHAVA“. ( LET THE ONE WHO PROVIDED ME THE FOOD BE HAPPY)
