Farmers are largest entrepreneurs in India. But, contrary to general notion of “High Risk, High Gain!”, farmers in India assume great risk only to get marginal or negative returns so often.
Rising demands for farm loan waivers across the states and unfortunate high extent of farmers’ suicides proves the existence of high distress in this sector. Can’t our ‘Annadata’ again be prosperous and happy as they were in ancient India valley civilisation and sustained great cities.
Agriculture, in fact, in India, is a way of life. It has huge implications on socio, political, economic, ecological and sustainable development goals. Prosperity in this sector is critical to pull half of Indian population out of multidimensional poverty and sustain growth momentum of Indian economy.
