Farmer's drumstick beats drought
I had decided that I will not be writing anything on my blog till the end of this year…...but just came across a link on BBC and couldn't resist putting on my blog.
This link is about drumstick cultivation in drought prone villages of India. Today, when India is booming in virtually all the sectors, agriculture and farmers are still in state of misery. Agriculture in India depends solely on Monsoon and if one looks at the ecomonic progress of country, it is not surprising that maximum benefits have been observed when the rain-god was kind to us…...anyways, what impressed me most was the idea of growning drumsticks. A 32 years old school drop-out farmer thought of this idea and even wrote a book on cultivating drumsticks. He even has a website.
The drumstick cultivation in drought-prone area has not only been successful but he is helping other farmers also to follow the suit.
No wonder, a little thinking, a little awareness and a drive to help others can make a big difference….......most impressive.
