Be Millet Staple Food. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.
Drought resistant and heat resistant,
Millet is a poor man bonanza.
High in protein, iron and calcium,
Millet can substitute rice and wheat well.
Monsoon erratic, rivers depleting,
Switch over to millet cultivation
And switch over to millet consumption
Are the need of the hour in dry area.
(Millets in English and Tamil:
Sorgham - Cholam
Pearl millet - Cumbu
Foxtail millet - Thinai
Finger millet - Keppai
Kedo millet - Varagu
Proso millet - Pani varagu
Barnyard millet -Kuthiraivaal
Little millet Saamai)
