Revolutions in India

We all have heard about the "Green Revolution' that happened in India in the late 1960's. It was the increased production of agricultural products especially wheat, rice, cereals, pulses etc. Dr M.S Swaminathan, the genius, was the man behind this silent revolution. His efforts could make wonders in the Indian agricultural sector thereby making India self sufficient in the case of agricultural produce. Dr Swaminathan could bring this magic by the use of sophisticated machinery and high yielding varieties of seeds in the agricultural sector in lieu of our primitive and outmoded methods of cultivation.

Govt of India has taken steps to make 'revolutions' similar to green revolution in other fields of production also. These revolutions also aim at the increased production in the respective sector. What are they?

1. White Revolution: Milk and Dairy products

2. Blue Revolution: Fishing and marine products

3. Yellow revolution: Oil seeds/edible oil especially mustard, sunflower etc.

4. Pink Revolution: Prawns, onion

5. Rainbow Revolution: Fruits/breeding of ornamental fish

6. Brown Revolution: Cocoa/Leather

7. Black Revolution: Petroleum

8. Grey Revolution: Fertilizer

9. Red Revolution: Meat, tomato

10. Round Revolution: Potato

11. Golden Revolution: Honey, Horticulture

12. Golden fiber: Jute

13. Silver fiber: Cotton

14. Silver: Eggs (Poultry)

Dr.M.S.Swaminathan has recently called upon the farmers to increase productivity of the lands in a sustained manner. Productivity must be doubled or tripled instead of an annual single-digit increase. Along with the use of traditional wisdom, they must optimally adopt technological advancements in agriculture. Technological innovations will increase the productivity of different crops and this will lead to an evergreen revolution.
