Why Indian farmers are in distress? Does Reservation agitation associated with farming crisis?

Indian Farmer, Distress, Pain,
Indian farmers are in great pain and it is not a secret anymore. The recent Indian government's budget also indicates that Indian farmers need immediate attention; therefore, the Government of India has come up with many schemes for the rural infrastructure and farmer's welfare; though, many critics still believe that lots of more are required to be done to address the distress among farmers.

Not only Indian farmers are in distress, the farmers across many nations are facing difficult situations which are forcing them to abandon farming. A few days back, I was watching a show on the Aljazeera channel about a shortage of food items in Venezuela. In this study, I found that Venezuela exports 80% of its essential food and due to a decrease in oil prices, it has become very costly for Venezuela to continue with older pattern.

Such stories are going to become common in most of the nation who will ignore their farmers. Today, we are able to eat well in India only because of the Indian farmers who is producing most of the essential food items at home and at an affordable rate. If these farmers stop growing food and shift to other jobs then there will be a scarcity of food and most of the food items will become very expensive out of the reach of most of the people.

Already, we are witnessing food inflation and many people are not able to eat a good daily meal. Recent, Jat and Patel reservation agitations are also seen associated with a decrease in the income from farming. These two castes traditionally in farming are finding it hard to continue the same work of farming because of decreasing income and increasing input cost. In the last three years, fertilizer prices have increased three times in India and similarly, prices of seeds and other input for farming have increased.

I have come across many farmers who say that farming is becoming very risky day by day because of decreasing income and uncertainty of good food production. Therefore, they do not want their children to do the same job. However, simultaneously they do not find themselves competitive enough to get high paying government jobs without reservation. In my last article Worst Condition of Indian Farmers, I showed some data which highlight the poor condition of Indian farmers.

So far, thousands of Indian farmers have committed suicide in the last few years and this number is likely to increase as more and more farmers becoming the victim of loans at a higher interest rate. In this whole setup, big companies, middlemen, and governments are making profits in the name of poor farmers. Farming matters come under the state government; however, many state governments don't do much for the welfare of farmers.

We need to create an improvement where Indian farmers find it easy to continue with farming. Our governments need to take measures which decrease the cost of input for farmers. Second, it is very important for the government to provide cheap loans for farmers so that they don't become a victim of loans at higher interest from the moneylenders. We still have time to save Indian farmers from leaving farming and making farming again a profitable work. Industrialization alone can't solve all of our problems and we need to make some balance between industrialization and farming.

Farmer situation has not changed for the last 70 years. Various Govts have tried all kinds of gimmicks to bring the farmer out of his morass. It has not worked. However politicians who have exploited the farmers have flourished. Babus and police have assisted the politicians. Unless this nexus is broken this will remain an unending tragic saga. Farmers take loans which they don't repay. Even after their loans are waived they are unhappy. Would it not be better for Govt to own all land and farmers remain as tenants. They will be paid on the basis of their produce. Sounds communist but we have to find a solution. This has become tragic joke with more and more farmers committing suicides for various reasons other than agriculture. Does the Govt have the will to take the bull by the horn. I wonder!

Importance of clean environment

It is very important to take care of our environment because our health and our survival on the earth directly depends on the health of our environment. It is very easy to find dirt and pollution at many places across the world and a large population of the world is living in these bad and unhygienic conditions.

People are drinking unclean drinking water and they are breathing polluted air; so, this pollution of the environment is causing many people to suffer from various health problems. Whereas if we live in a clean environment then we can live a healthy life and we can achieve this by understanding the importance of clean environment.

Sadly, we see very less being done to address this matter and we are slowly creating more polluted spaces on earth. Today, it is very hard to find clean places at several parts of the world. Slowly, the governments across the world are opening eyes to address this issue.


It is very important for every individual in this world to understand that clea…

What is Age difference of Abhishek and Aishwarya? Is Age difference really matter in Marriages?

Abhishek Bachan and Aishwarya Rai Bachan hardly need any introduction and they are the most successful and best couples of Bollywood. They married on 20-4-2007 and that time, there were speculations about their marriage that will there marriage be a success or not? Till now their married life is going very smoothly and they become proud parents of a beautiful daughter Aaradhya on 16th Nov, 2012.

The marriage of Abhishek and Aishwarya was unique in one more way. Aishwarya Rai is older than Abhishek Bachan by 2 yrs and 2 months which is the opposite of the general trend in India where mostly groom age is more than a bride. Date of Birth of Aishwarya Rai is 1st November 1973 and Date of Birth of Abhishek Bachan is February 5th, 1976. Even after six years of their marriage, this matter is the main point of many talks and at many places where the age of the girl is more than a boy, then this example is given.


Abhishek Bachan has followed the example of his father Amitabh Bachan who has marri…

Taking the Challenges in Life

Life is not a walk on the roses but it is a constant walk with surprising outcomes on each corner. Challenges will always emerge from nowhere and try to derail the otherwise smooth life. Under such circumstances, it all depends on the strength of nerves of a human being. Sometimes, the challenges are very big and they simply look impossible to tackle. People with strong nerves stay firm on their ground while people with weak nerves accept the failure.

The best way in life is mostly a difficult way which challenges us on all the grounds. Everyone should have the courage to take the difficult path and make their nerves strong. The more difficulties, we will face in life, the more strong nerves we will develop. The people with strong nerves are not some people from the alien world but they are the people who have faced maximum difficulties and challenges in their life.
