History of thousands of years of human migration tells us that homo sapiens have always been in search of better locations for living their lives. Better in terms of food security, ecology, law and order etc. The process of migration which began 70,000 years ago, when homo sapiens moved out of Africa, continued for 40000 years. History notices it as first wave of migration.
History has observed several such waves of human migration.
Urbanization can also be seen as one such wave , which began in England during Industrial Revolution and is still hitting the shores of various countries across the world.
India is no exception !
During last 20 years as many as 200 million people have moved out of villages in India, leaving out their age old profession of agriculture and have settled in metro/industrial cities.
We can assume that urbanization has given a better quality of life to human beings but at the same time humans have paid a huge price for this better and comfortable life. The worst is that we are gradually losing our self sustainability and self dependency and thus making our lives more and more dependent on others.
We are now more dependent on others than ever for fulfilling our daily requirements. During the course of entire human history we are now having the largest percentage of human population on earth which doesn’t even know how to grow their own food.
Have you ever wondered, when we don’t grow our food, we have to “buy” it from the market; and when we “buy” food , it becomes a business commodity; and every business commodity follows one basic principle; more volume, more money !
At this very point a farmer is turned in to a businessman, who is seeking and ensuring a larger volume of his produce; by any means ; by hook, or by crook !
Not a bad approach for a “businessman” , but a farmer…. with the same approach ? ? ?
Apparently this is the reason why Indians prefer to call it agriculture and not agro-business. This is a horrible term !
Anyways, so the point is that this “greed” is the fundamental cause of chemically treated fruits and vegetables.
We can conclude that we are forced to consume poison in our food, our health is at risk, because our farmers have turned in to the businessmen !
It is simple and easy !
“GROW YOUR OWN FOOD” !
No matter how come !
