Farmer-The Backbone of India. India is an agricultural country. India lives in villages. The villagers depend on agriculture. They are either farmers or workers on the agricultural fields. Ours industries and urban business also depend on agriculture. Thus, an Indian farmer truly represents India. He can be called the son of the soil and also the backbone of India. It is on his sweet and labour that our progress and prosperity depend. We all know that our backbone gives us support to our body. If something becomes to our backbone we will suffer many problems.
In sameway farmers are said to be backbone of India. If something will become to farmer then India will suffer many problems. He supports us by producing all basic food needs like grains,vegetables,milk,etc. Which we need in our daily life. It is he who feeds and clothes the people. An Indian farmer is very hard working and very busy throughout the year. For him there is no rest nor weekend holidays . He is engaged in tilling the soil, sowing the seeds, watering the fields, reaping and harvesting the crop and then taking it to the market to sell it.
And yet he is very poor. He is being exploited by the money-lenders and the middleman. He is unable to recover his money spent during the harvesting period. His needs are few and simple and yet they are not met. Their exploitation should be stopped. They should be distributed agricultural land. They should be given cheap loans and other facilities. They should be given better seeds, fertilizers and return for their produce. The irrigation facilities should be improved.
