In India, farming is not just a profession but it is also a way of life. Farmers in India are known for their perseverance, ingenuity, and hard work. They play an important role in the economic development of the country. Despite all the challenges and difficulties, they continue to contribute towards food security and poverty alleviation.
Every year on December 23rd, India celebrates Farmer’s Day or Kisan Diwas to commemorate the birthday of Chaudhary Charan Singh, a great Indian farmer, and politician. He served as the Prime Minister of India from 1977 to 1979.
Chaudhary Charan Singh always emphasized the need for better irrigation facilities and technology for the farmers. He also worked towards increasing the production of food grains in India. After his death, the Indian government decided to commemorate his birthday as Farmer’s Day every year to honor his great contributions to the agriculture sector in India.
