Farmer-The blessings of God

Farmer is an individual who basically depends on agriculture and/or livestock. They (Farmers) are very important part of human beings because they only deliver foods (like – vegetables, grains, fruits etc.) in front of the living beings’ mouth. So, he or she helps us to alive, is like a god. We believe that god is the creator of this universe as well as the human beings. As the same we called the farmer as second God-without farmer we are nothing. Now a days Agriculture provides the employment opportunity and livelihood to most of the Indian population but the farmer is one who don’t care about the employment, why am I saying this because of their amount of consumption is less than the amount of food grain they provide to others. Side by side if I take livestock rearing there is also the same story about the consumption. Someone asked to a farmer- Are you feeling happy or proud to be a farmer? The farmer said- Yes, I am. Literally the next question will be ‘Why?’. Then farmer replied- I don’t want to be a doctor because they (Doctor) earn money or spend their livelihood by the illness of the people or when disease attacks the living population then doctors survive. I don’t want to be an engineer because an engineer earn money by directly or indirectly harming the environment ecologically. I also don’t want to be a lawyer because a lawyer’s income depends on how many crimes are happened in the country. But I feel proud as a farmer because without harming others I feed the whole population for their survival. Is it not the enough blessings of god? It means the doctors, engineers, lawyers etc. are socially constructed system but not the farmer. Apart from these we can focus in the context of Indian population where we usually see or realize that normally a Indian guy think the farmer as a backward class/underprivileged which is also socially constructed/ trained in the Indian peoples mind.
Paul Harvey's essay on the virtues of the American farmer, which he delivered to the Future Farmers of America back in 1978. It says: "God said, 'I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the fields, milk cows again, eat supper, then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board.' So God made a farmer." Apart from this farmers spend hours over hours to evaluate their lands and do plan of each season plantation but one thing is that how much they do, they are not sure about their success. Farmers do very hard work in everyday life. But they depends on god and believe that Success comes from the god only. A farmer’s pray to god- Lord, bless the land you are given and they always know how much they take care the crop, only god helps the crop to grow. God protect the farmer from different type of harm and the farmers are very thankful to god for a precious gift-the blessings of god on farm.
So at the end of my thought I would like to say that you will need a Doctor or a engineer or a architect or a lawyer once in your living period. One thing should be in your mind that you’ll need a Farmer at least three times in a day. Every day every time you will felt a need of a farmer. So, Please respect the FARMERs, co-operate with the FARMERs and save the FARMERs. They are only the god blessings human being. They were, so now we are; they are, that’s why we will; they will then only we survive. So, Farmers are the real god or the blessings of god.
