Balanced growth

We all know that we can’t live without food and how many of us really care for those producing the quite ingredients. Today people all concentrate on development which we all think as computer based and make easy things without hard work and pain by just sitting in front of computers and gadgets and of course it’s not an easy take though, physical ability has reduced and mental strain has increased since we forget to balance either.
Today almost development is based on technology basis and most of them just want to become an engineer and work in MNCs or software companies which pay high and have a wide vision of aboard. I’m not complaining about them or this system based development and thus I never qualified to talk about others and the wisdom based on studies and knowledge, I just express from the views and thoughts I read and felt from.

We all need this kind of development which I have no different opinion from others, but this is not alone a life of living and we need to give total equivalent to agriculture which holds our breath. We all know that it’s impossible to live without eating and food is not quite based of cereal products it also includes vegetable and fruits and if not agriculture where could we get all these from. There used to say there isn’t a best medicine like food!

I’m nothing to say new here but felt to say that the care and concern given for agriculture isn’t right unlike we give to technology based development which lack to look beside either agriculture or its related livestock business and growth. I can’t quite deny that technology isn’t helpful in agriculture any ways, but still beyond an edge is totally based on soil and water resource. What really put down the agriculture was lack of employees who weren’t content with the income and goes in search of jobs in cities and towns.

Today how many youngsters willing to take agriculture as their career and get down in field to make certain for its future progress and productivity. Man, education and knowledge is to develop every individual to think and work on their own and experience a life of great wisdom and values… but how many of them work based on their studies and interest. Its overall experience and talent make one a great employ or CEO.

My question is when one can work with such jobs why can’t take agriculture as a career to make certain it has a bright future to behold beyond its struggle and starvation. The technology has developed a lot and make certain that anything is possible, but why can’t we still bring up the suppressed agriculture and give hand to our foremost life saver and best among the businesses.

I just write what quite mind says about and I’m not much deep in details about the facts to make certain or explain except through sense of what I see, read and come to know that there’s something dying or unconcerned beside great development in technology. What I really want to see was that both technology and agriculture are developed at balance to build a developed India.

There are Universities with degree in Agriculture and many students do study, research in crops, flowers so on.

It's just not so much advertised like IT/ MBA, but many students go for it and also work in Government sector where they have to do field work too.

Some go on to do business in Horticulture like exporting flowers based on seasons.

well, i think there are people who work in these sectors too, i personally feel that their job profile is such that we seldom come to know about them...but in a way you are right that society as a whole does not give that much importance to these sectors as it should be....

A thoughtful post....!!

This is the age of marketing. You give a fancy name like bio-engineering which maybe nothing but just a crop or seed researcher and you'll see students queuing for it. Its just that the institutes need to make it lucrative as also govt/ private bodies also need to step in by providing opportunities by innovating on seed quality, farming mechanisms and tools. Surely agriculture is one area India needs to focus and can solve a lot of the un-employment problem.

With industrial growth the agriculture has taken a back seat.

A very good post. Something to ponder.
Looks like many prefer technology to agriculture. Maybe this mind set should be changed.I agree both should be at balance.

Your post is so thought provoking, Jeevan. Why is it that we go after complicated jobs and forget that it is the elementary that give us so much pleasure and satisfaction?

I only wonder, Jeevan.

Jeevan excellent point. You are correct today's technology is not helping the youngsters. I am already disappointed of the cell phone/texting usage. It is very common to see one person in the cafe, having coffee with his/her blackberry. Agriculture is important, and youngsters will never see it, they probably will never know it - I already heard that some think that milk is made like coca-cola.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I don't know if I ever told you, but you write very well. Anna :)
