About the Book
As Indians break into 2021 with the fervent hope that it will be different from last year’s devastating pandemic and farmer protest, many thousands farmers have gathered peacefully at the doorsteps of the nation’s capital, demanding that the government repeal the recently formulated agriculture related laws and make MSP as law. There is a lot of noise on who is right and who is wrong. But this protest would challenge us to rethink, not as researchers or academics or even as policy makes, but as consumers of food that farmers grow. The question we need to ask is why does the food that we consume need to be subsidised? Why are farmers, not just the one camping in the bitter cold at the capital’s borders, but also the voiceless silent majority, demanding price support? Are they unproductive and lazy? These are some of the important issues that have been vividly explained in this book. The author has taken help from all sources of information and compiled the data with proper explanation in a very lucrative way.
