Adopt a Marginalized Farmer in Himalaya
Nobody can survive without agriculture produce.
That includes you as well? Just try for a day or two without a meal and you would realize the truth.
The COVID -19 has once again re-validated the power of nature to the world.
Agriculture has played a vital role in the development of modern civilization. The majority of people in our country have their roots in agriculture or related activities. They or their forefathers were farmers
Gradually, they quit farming and encouraged their children to join other professions because of the hardships, uncertainties, and miseries of peasant life. The farmer tearfully redirected their children to non-agricultural activities.
Invariably, every sensible person understands the importance of agriculture and hardship entailed in farming; we are one of them.
At this juncture of the COVID-19 epidemic, millions of people are losing their jobs, and forcefully returning to their traditional occupation, which is already under tremendous stress.
So, It's high time that sensible and nature lovers, supported the marginalized farmers of the Himalayan area; the farmers who are challenging all odds to sustain the ecology. They are the ones who are doing their best to slow down the impact of climate change and global warming.
It is high time that the farmer or farming community was supported.
The rationale of the campaign:
As per the Agriculture experts, agriculture is never a truly profitable occupation. The amount of hard work, cost, labor, uncertainty, and risk involved in agriculture is a thousand times more than any other business or profession.
But at the same, it is also a fact that without agriculture, the world cannot survive for a day. Not only the food grain production, but farming also does a tremendous amount of ecological service to the entire globe. From underground water recharge to the survival of bees, ants, and the whole food chain of the earth, majorly depends on agriculture.
