The type of lifestyle in India says one thing that its government should concentrate seriously, sincerely to give its agricultural economy a boost, and eradicate its problems that are quite possible to eradicate.
Some things are tough to eradicate, like making a group of farmers come together and join their farmlands to benefit. Indian farmlands are really, really small, so small that it’s almost impossible to use modern machineries like tractor on quite a huge percentage of them. That of course slashes down the productivity but with our slack rule of law and order none will dare to join his or her land with another, they will fear that they will lose their land by one form of arm-twisting or other, I too share their suspicions.
But, other things can be done; farmers with small lands can be trained, guided to sow things that will benefit them and the consumers both.
The government can play the roles that the money-lenders do and suck the blood of these farmers- give them the money before sowing and collect after their harvesting. Now, if a farmer loses a crop at least he won’t have to pay a blood curdling interest rate till the next harvest.
They can also get rid of those agents who buy the products from the farmers at dirt rate and sell them and collect the booty.
Industrialization is good, essential for any country but industries and agricultures should thrive side by side, especially in countries like India. Industries may be necessary but farmlands are blessing to earth.
