Civic issues, Features and Personalities of Navi Mumbai
Agriculture in India has a significant history and an importance in our life. It is playing a crucial role in our economy as well as in our everyday life. In a moment of truth our Prime minister said “India needs another green revolution”, which echoes the importance of agriculture and food production in our country. It is important to remember the hard works and the misery of the people who works behind it. Their problems and needs should reach the eyes of those ignore them. In the earlier history of our country, historians would agree that, farmers and those fights in the soil had a great reputation in the society.
The Panvel Post is tracing the problems and misery of farmers fighting on the soil of Navi Mumbai.
Near to the Kharghar railway station and Taloje creek is a suitable space for agriculture, as it provides a good amount of water and nearer to the residential areas. Came from different cultures and places, farmers here join together and cultivate profitable leafy vegetables. Farmers complain our society is not encouraging agriculture or any job that need hard work of the body.
When we are proud to be Modern citizen living in the satellite city, many times ignore the hands behind our food materials. Even a small cultivation of vegetables in our terrace could hit the headlines of newspapers. When we sit in offices and work in front of computers, we forget those works in heavy sunlight. Still we complain government for not controlling the inflation of food materials.
Suresh, a young farmer tilting his land, said “How many of our city dwellers are interested in agriculture? How of you will allow your sons to work in soil?” The question asked by the farmer is not optional for us Human beings, but the question towards the very existence.
The soil on the banks of Taloje creek is suitable for small term farming due to easy availability of water but contain lots of stones. Suresh had to tilt through the hard soil and pick out stones from inside it, in order to make the land suitable for cultivation. Then he and his friends divide the lands into small square plots for separate it into groups. Then they apply a small amount of water over the land to make to cool and fresh.
In coming days, they will plough through the land and will start cultivation of leafy vegetables. Suresh and his friends have no life without farm lands. They love the soil and its smell. “Suresh could understand pulse of soil and he will act accordingly” said one of his friends.
“When we treat soil with good intention, she will give you back a hand full of prosperity. If we respect her life, she will bless you. For that you need to love her.” said Suresh.
Once our farmers had a great respect and reputation in our culture, but the emergence of modern culture had put agriculture into a backsliding profession. These farmers argue to make agriculture a profession than a job.
