Farmer's Dream - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

A hard working innocent farmer dreams,
That his son should be in top
But still he should take care of farming,
If farming will not be done at all
Then what will the people eat?
Will they eat the gold coins
Or will they eat bundles of notes?
If there will be no farming,
No one will get food even having money,
A farmer is important and his son too,
Farming is important for food supply.

Richer is the nation where all
People get food and work hard,
Where a child of farmer gets all facilities,
And he gets due honour, love and care,
Where a farmer's son is well educated,
Where he tops and becomes victorious,
A nation richly fulfills ambition,
When farmers grow and selflessly serve,
Golden greenly days smile with many crops.

A farmer's only dream is to serve others
Proving food and nutrition of good qualities,
A farmer trusts God and selflessly serves,
Righteousness dwells in his Innocent mind,
Farmer works hard whole day to give us food,
We should respect a farmer and his children!

    “A farmers dream is only to serve others”... very true, I know this because I am a farmer myself.

    But, he should be able to make both ends meet too. He should be able to eke out a living out of his farmland. In India it is becoming entremely difficult to even get back the investment. So farmers land in the vicious cycle of debt trap. Ultimately, the farmers who feed others are forced to end their lives. But the government does nothing to save them.

    A farmer should have a right dream, right love and care and his high ambition should be adored. We can never neglect a farmer. He is a food giver. Thank you very much sir for sharing this lovely poem. (Report)Reply

    Great insight on farmers. But all the things done to help a farmer are of the nature of Band-aid solutions. Take minimum support price; its benefit is wiped out shortly due to inflation. In fact it causes prices to rise. Take exemption from debt (loans) . The cream is cornered by rich farmers. And what about those honest who have paid the debt? Great work indeed. (Report)Reply
