" Farming is not a job it's a way of life"
The government of India had decided to mark December 23rd as the National Farmers’ day to mark the birth anniversary of our 5th Prime Minister (July 28, 1979 – January 14, 1980), Mr. Choudhary Charan Singh – one of the greatest leaders who worked for the betterment of farmers and coined the national farmers day.
Activists from various NGOs will also go among farmers and educate them about the welfare schemes of the central and state government.
National farmers day or Kisan diwas is celebrated in honour of Chaudhary Charan Singh who was the fifth prime minister of India. He saw the country as Prime Minister for a very short tenure starting from 28 July 1979 till 14 January 1980. He was a very simple-minded man and lead an extremely simple life. During his tenure as a prime minister, he introduced many policies to improve the life of Indian farmers.
The famous slogan ' Jai Jawan Jai Kisan' was given by the second prime minister of India. Chaudhary Charan Singh was also a very successful writer and wrote down several books depicting his thoughts on a farmer and their problems; he even came out with various solutions to improve the lives of farmers.
He was a farmer himself and led an extremely simple life. Since he belonged to the farmer's family he made a lot of efforts towards improving the life of Indian farmers. Farmers are the backbone of our society and contribute greatly to the economic development of India.
The majority of the Indian population live in villages and cultivation is the main source of income for them. Thus, a day dedicated to Indian farmers would not only increase our enthusiasm but would create respect in people's minds for them.
Most of the states in India especially those which are rich in agriculture such as Haryana, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh and various other states are taking ideas from Uttar Pradesh for celebrating Kisan was.
The farmer produces food and other eatables which are distributed across the nation; the urban population greatly depends upon the farming done by the farmers all over India. Thus, the government must develop more productive conditions for the farmers all over India for Healthier and Richer cultivation.
Every year, the Indian farmers have to fight natural crises such as drought, flood, poor quality seeds, etc. Even though for the last 10 -15 years, farmers in India getting a lot of relief from the government, such as receiving a fair price
for their production, rebate on loan, facility to use new technology for cultivation and many more; but there is a yet a lot to be done to improve the conditions of the farmers and their farming practices, is only than our country would be developed country in the true sense.
