Plight of The Farmers

Plight of The Farmers

You woke up with an energetic feeling and head to the kitchen to make some coffee for yourself.

When you open the fridge, there is no milk available and you thought, your parents might have not remembered to buy it.

After sometime, you want to have breakfast and when you check the cereal box, you got shocked because it is also empty then you are checking all the containers in the kitchen, each and everything is empty.

“What the hell? What kind of thief steals all the food related items?”, you are screaming without any sound in your mind. You think that it was some kind of joke going on with you.

Then your brain consoles you and said “come on, it’s just food items, you have a hell lot of money, you can buy anything”.

That’s true, you speak to yourself and you grab some money and go to the nearest grocery store.

You entered the shop with a smile and went to the food section. Again a big shock, there are no food related items available in that shop. You look around and find everyone just as confused as you are.

You are starving and cannot fight it anymore.

You decide to eat somewhere before buying the items, you went to a nearby restaurant, to your surprise it was closed. You head to another one and find it closed too.

Now you lost your patience because you are very hungry and you decide to go back home and ask help from your parents.

You sit back holding the hunger a little while longer and switched the T.V. on. The news is flashing:


And people are trying to eat any living thing, many were died in that incident and numbers are increasing…

Suddenly you wake up from your sleep, sweating and shivering and realized it is a dream…

But what if it’s not a dream? What if farmers stop producing crops? One can live without new shoes and clothes, one can thrive without computers and T.Vs, one can move without cars. But one cannot live without food. We cannot imagine a life without farmers.

Farmers are also called the ‘annadaata’. They are the food suppliers of our country. They are the backbone of our society. They are the ones who provide us all the food that we consume. The skyscrapers, shopping malls, fancy cars and other luxuries that people in the urban regions enjoy today are only because a farmer is getting his hands dirty and working day in and day out in the fields.

A farmer is as important to a country as a soldier. While one protects the nation against enemies and guards the citizens against bad elements, another makes sure that we never sleep hungry even for one day. The food we eat every day is because of the sweat and hard work that our farmers go through in the fields.

But just praising farmers and the farming community is not sufficient. India has one of the highest farmer suicide rates in the country. And this precedence is not taken seriously by the people of the country and is never reported in any media channels. There are various reasons why a farmer commits suicide. One might be due to lack of proper production of crops due to scanty rainfalls or unpredictable weather conditions. Governments should intervene to help farmers cope up with their losses.

What I would like to say is that the farmer and the work he does for his country is no less than the divine work. Governments should formulate proper policies and laws to take care of their needs. If we take care of his needs, only then he can take care of our needs.
