Policy Faultlines

"A country which has largest cross river delta of Ganges-Yamuna and second largest Brahmaputra-Ganges rivers along with marvelous kaleidoscope of fifty-six rivers across the nation has a lot to promise from this world"

World is turning into concrete! The urbane development structure is expanding. Fertile farmland is turning into parking, skyscrapers, roads, rails and everything which eases routine life of man.
Increasing ground acidic value, reducing irrigable land, depletion of ground water, reduction in rainfall average are the alarming challenges in food production.
On top of it world population is getting way higher than seven billion humans. What we produce in our farms is not only needed to humans but also to domestic animals as well. The Agro Produce and by products serves close to 13billion trunks globally. Population which is heavily based upon natural food is increasing persistently. What is further ironic is the fact that human induced pollution is depleting the ecology which is crucial in growing crops.
The need of the hour is to create systems which make agriculture independent from climate and geological conditioning of the farm land available. In Indian subcontinent, it is largely underestimated segment of education largely due to several theological and mythological theories. However due to increasing food inflation the perception of the farmers is changing. Unorganized conventional methods cultivation is lethally harming the farmers engaged in cultivation on the other hand side increasing demand supply gap is triggering exponentiation of food prices in urbane retail. Market forces are betting upon the quality, hygiene and packaging aspects to develop brands based marketing strategy for the agro-commodities. Unplanned irrigation, usage of fertilizers, pesticides and tampered timelines of cropping is playing havoc in Indian Agriculture sector.
Government policies of subsiding mid day meals, education and promoting unwanted as well as highly unskilled employment in rural areas where population is based upon agriculture is potentially harming the food production, procurement and transpiration. All these events put together are creating circumstances where third pillar of Indian economy is drying quite unexpectedly.
Indian subcontinent is having enormous potential for developing, upgrading and engaging technology in agriculture. A subcontinent which is heavily populated with semi-skilled labor and poor technological infrastructure needs immediate overhauling. A country which has largest cross river delta of Ganges-Yamuna and second largest Brahmaputra-Ganges rivers along with marvelous kaleidoscope of fifty-six rivers across the nation has a lot to promise from this world.

The need is the intention to correct the big wrong things. We have to elect sensible policy makers who can grow up from communal and capitalistic ideologies. Think it over…
