Why the Condition of Indian Farmer is so Bad and becoming worse with each Passing day?



The above picture is the latest picture of a hilly landless farmer which clearly shows that how many Indian farmers have left behind in the race of life. The Recent killing of 5 agitating farming in police firing in the state of Madhya Pradesh has again highlighted the issue of the bad condition of Indian farmers.



About 9 years back, I raised this issue in my article Condition of Indian Farmers and appealed to the decision makers to look into this matter because of millions of farmers committing suicide due to the high financial burden. However, many governments came and gone without solving the problem of Indian farmers. Due to this reason, the problem of Indian farmers has become so bad that they have no option left in their hands except committing suicide.

Two years back, I again wrote an article (Worst (Poor) Condition of Indian Farmers) and Why Indian farmers are in distress? by highlighting some of the important points which are responsible for the bad condition of the Indian Farmers. In this article, it clearly came out that large numbers of farmer want to leave farming because of no profit present in farming.

Indian Farmer,
Struggling Indian Farmer

Recently, I heard a farmer leader on TV who said that farmers condition has become so worst that no one wants to give a girl to a farmer for marriage and he was very angry at the present situation of the farmers.

While in the developed countries of the world, farming is a rewarding occupation and farmers are very wealthy and in opposite to it, farming is in very bad shape in India and 57% of Indian farmers are below poverty line as per the government of India report.



Now, Why the condition of Indian Farmer is so bad? Then, the answer is very simple that majority of Indian farmers are not able to earn a respectable income from farming. In the majority of cases, farmers even do not get back their cost of production.

Moreover, this is not a story of the single year and situations are becoming worse due to the constant increase in the cost of seeds, labor, fertilizers, pesticides etc. Many farmers in India take loans to do farming; however, when they fail to earn even what they paid to raise the crop then they find themselves trapped in a financial burden and sometimes under the pressure commit suicides.

On the one hand, governments offer so many incentives and cheap loans for the corporates, on the other side, they fail to address even the basics needs of the Indian farmers. I do not advocate loan weavers or similar incentives for the farmers; however, at least something needs to be done for the farmers so that they earn assured profit from their crops and live a respectful life.

Time has come when our government needs to think about the bad condition of Indian farmers and create solutions to address this problem.

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…

Why people migrate from Villages to Big cities? Cost of living in Big Cities and Side effects

Around the world, big cities have become a great reality and today, our major pollution lives in these big cities. Moreover, the expansion of these cities is still on with migration of more people from villages to big cities.
The major reason for the migration of people from villages and small towns to big cities is the availability of employment.
Employment is one of the major needs of every individual because through it he can earn money to live a comfortable life.
Big cities offer an abundance of employment opportunities for different classes of society. From a highly educated person to a laborer, everyone can find a good job in a big city because of good demand of such services. Therefore, many people who migrate to such big cities settle permanently in these cities and increase the size and population of such cities.

Does the effect of coronavirus is overrated?

Today, we see the whole of the world gripped in the fear of coronavirus that some of the countries have even crippled. There is no doubt that coronavirus is a new and deadly virus and; we don’t have any cure available to fight this virus. However, still, the effects of this virus are overrated and we fear too much from it. People around the world fear so much from coronavirus that they think that its end is near. In the recent post, does the whole world die because of the coronavirus outbreak? I have tried to highlight this issue.
It is clear that it is a deadly virus and we need to take all precautions to fight it; however, fearing too much from it is not a good idea. The death rate from this virus is already much-much less than many other diseases present in our world and this virus is more dangerous for the people who are already at the risk. The steep fall in stock markets across the world also show this nature of the world that we are losing all hopes.
All this is happening becaus…
