Save me... :(

Dear friend,

I must thank you for saving me till these days. I am one among you people.... The major thing, which you have forgotten. That was the days, when at least one of your family members followed my profession. But now, you don't even think about me, while using the products created by me. You want your son or daughter to join an MNC, earn lakhs of rupees and lead a luxurious life. You never want your son to become a person like me. I completely agree with your thinking. because, the profession I follow has been treated as the one with no future, no earning, no profit...  .. I just wanted to ask, who created this kind of situation??? it is you people... H'ble politicians use my name to get power... and once they gain it, I will be the one who is the most neglected. People think about creating new infrastructure, factories, IT companies, big malls... You people use air conditioned rooms,cars.... but I am still relying on rain for growing my crops... I am not asking an Ac car to move on.. I just need food... food for my children... If I get enough rainfall, half of my earning goes to middleman for marketing my goods... If I didn't, then to get my investment back, by crop insurance, I need to give half of it as a bribe...

My dear friend... please think about me, my situation at least for a while... try creating ambient work environment for me.. Dear Scientists, please work on this regard too... create new technology to make farming a reliable option for job. Dear Govt. Please have a look on us too... We form 60% of Indian population....

Live and Let us live....

Yours truly,

A farmer
