Makar Sankranti: 8 social enterprises Who Work for the Betterment of Indian farmers
BANGALORE: Every year we celebrate Makar Sankranti as an auspicious harvest festival. But do we ever care about the problems our farmers are facing in today’s scenario. We live in a land where majority of the rural and semi-urban population is hands down deep in agriculture and domestic farming from generations to count.
But due to many reasons such as pollution, increase in natural calamities and lack of resources to sustain a healthy crop, there has been a visible decline in farming over the years. Farmers find it extremely difficult to sell their crops for a fair price and are often short of leading a comfortable livelihood.
