A Tragedy Story of Indian Agriculture/Farmers!!!

Every human  born on this earth can't  survive without food and water.since inception of the humanity agriculture is been the prime important job and every human value food more than anything in this world.Today basic law of our civilization has been destroyed .India a agriculture nation in early 90's has been changed to service sector country in mid 2005.Everyone from a common man to corporates want food for survival but rapid globalization destroying agriculture and farmers.

Farmer's who feed everyone stomach goes empty stomach after the rapid globalization.farmer's lost control over there crop and fertile land.India is the largest food production country in the world if India itself goes out of agriculture then world will go into hand of hunger.If we don't take care of our agriculture then one day we have to start import food from other countries.Farmer's are facing a strong sword from all direction.

  • Every year in India about a billion ton of food grain get rotten to avoid such drastic thing we must built proper infrastructure and storage for the food grains.
