Why the economic condition of the farmers is very poor in India?Every day when I turn the newspaper, I happen to see some death news of the farmers who have committed suicide at various parts of India due to poverty. It is very pathetic to see the worse situation of the Indian farmers. Not all the farmers are economically poor in India, but the major people involved in farming are facing lot of economic struggles in their daily life. To free from their poverty, some farmers have already sold their valuable agricultural lands to the real estate brokers and are doing daily wages jobs at cities and towns. Lot of agricultural lands are now turning into corporate areas and lot of buildings and apartments are found at the fresh green farming lands in the village areas. Is our society and our government ignoring the hard work of the Indian farmers and pushing them into poverty?
The common people who are eating the food produced by the farmers are leading a happy and a comfortable life in India but the economic situation of the cultivators who cultivate that food for the benefit of others is very poor. Why is it so? Why the economic condition of the farmers is very poor in India? Is it because of lack of education and less awareness about the global marketing policies and technology?
I agree, climatic conditions are one of the major reasons for poverty. But other than the natural changes, what are the reasons for the poor economic condition of the farmers in India?
