Farmers in India are committing suicide, they are force to drink their own urine and eat rats to quench their hunger and thrust. But Govt. is not coming forward to help them. Food is basic need of human being. We can’t live without food. So how is it that a food producer is not earning enough for his own survival?
The reason why farmers are in such a bad condition is not so simple. Only govt. and its policies can’t be hold responsible for their plight. The main issue is their total dependence on rain and traditional method of farming instead of using high yield seeds, fertilisers and modern methods of irrigation. In Europe and other developed countries farmers are rich and happy because they use latest technologies. They can even afford air-planes for spreading insecticide on their crops. Back in India, farmers keep looking towards sky for rain! They are busy in all sorts of superstitions and pleasing sun god, rain god, moon god and all other god and goddess.
We need a sustainable society. In a sustained society such things will be stories of past. Because there will be a group of peoples supporting you technically, financially, legally and morally. Take the example of PAANI foundation of Amir Khan-the great Bollywood actor. They completely change the fate of droughts struck villages. Govt. is busy in corruption. Let’s come together and make our life better and work for sustainable future. Please write to me if you are interested in social work to help poor’s.
