Farmer’s Day

Today is farmer’s day. On twitter #FarmersDay and #ThankYouFarmers were trending. I don’t know how many of them were accepting their thanks on Twitter. According to 2011 census, 68.3 % of the Indian population was living in village.  Majority of them is directly or indirectly involved in agriculture. Though they are approx 70% of the population, they are not considered as a vote bank as some of the communities. I don’t know why? So, when they are not vote bank, their economic stature in India is abysmally low and they are only remembered by the politicians only during the time of elections.

I love being close to nature. Today was Sunday, so I had the opportunity to escape from the city. I picked my bike and went for a long ride. I finally reached to a profession which is closest to nature “agriculture.” Spent some time with a farmer or two. Life of them were not financially sound, yet they had most precious asset with them. “Hope and contentment”
