Where is India heading to ?I was writing about Farmer's suicide today, when a thought crossed my mind. In which direction is our country heading towards ?
Due to rising demands, things that were once said to be luxury have become more of a need for the new/ moderate society, things like smartphones, Tv's, internet. Farmer's have families too and families have desires which they are bound to fulfill being a provider. So to fulfill those needs a farmer has to take a loan because income from the farm is meager. As income is less and sometimes due to natural calamity he is not able to pay the debt and it keeps on bundling up and up. I am not writing something like I have read the reports or watched news channels for it. I have seen this situation Live.
Farmers are our lifelines, without them we won't have cheap grains because then we would have to import and it will cost.
I don't remember exactly the numbers but the current government settled thousand crores of corporate loans to keep them afloat. But when it comes to settling farmer's loans the government just don't have enough funds.
So corporate are more important than farmers ? Is this the new direction our so called republic is heading towards ? This is a clear sign that we are becoming like USA who does not give a dime about its citizens.
I am not talking about some acche din or something but is this what we are OK with ?
What are your thoughts ? You find any mistaken data in my quote, do correct me.
