మండుతున్న గుండె

బీడైన నేల

ఆరిన కంటతడి

చూపుకందని మేఘం

మొలకరాని విత్తు

మాటపెగలని గొంతు

మండుతున్న గుండె

  1. I have an idea to share on this very issue. We can shun the wretched governments who can’t really govern. It must be a people’s movement. This works perfectly on the Prisoner’s Dilemma principle. I shall explain the principle later, if necessary.

    The alternative proposal is like this:
    A group of people in the town (say from an apartment of 30-50 families or a street of approximately same size) adopt a set of farmers from a village. The requirement of Paddy/ Arhar and other pulses will be worked out before the agreement. They mutually agree that the farmer supplies the produce to the Town people at a predetermined rate after the harvest of thecrop and the Town people shall bear the cost of cultivation, paying necessary advance to the farmer in the beginning itself. There by, the farmer need not have to go for loans from private parties, need not crave for support price from government, Middleman, merchants and millers shall not be able to play with price structure ti dupe the producer and consumer. The farmer is benefited by not getting caught in debt trap. The consumer is benefited by assured supply of goods and at a rate far below the market rate. A guiding principle should be rate at which the farmer and town people enter into contract should be certainly 10% more than the Minimum Support Price.

    I invite your comments since I know you are a serious writer and this is a serious issue we cannot ignore any longer.

  2. @sunamu most of the big corporations (Frito-Lay for potatoes etc.). work this way. But we should not have strikes, Blackouts, Rail Roko, Bus Strikes because they are essential for production and transportation of the things produced by the farmer. Yes what you said is possible and it is being done in countries where essentials are under control.

    1. Thanks Rao garu for your response.

      I just want to say this should be away from corporates. This should be more a silent people movement than an organised one from corporates. This helps proliferation of users into producer’s domain and understand their problems.
      When corporates enter, there is a middle man and the consumer shall ahve to shell more than what he could otherwise get a commodity for.
      This is conceived more like a producer-consumer bridge. An explicit understanding between user and producer for a win-win situation so long as they honour each other’s commitment… the consumer to help the producer through out the process of production, and the producer in turn to make the produce available to the consumer. This is a non-zero sum situation where they will be benefited so long as one doesn’t try to cheat the other.

        1. Sri Rao,
          If you mean a non-governmental and non-profit organisation by the word “corporation” it is fair. Because, it gives a sort of credibility to the deal. But any other corporation, is an organised sector and shall ahve its own set up and employees. As you are aware, all organisations that start as service institutions in the beginning (like our democracy) over a period of time, after they establish themselves, tend to become dictatorial corrupt and will be totally devoid of the spirit with which they started. My objection to corprations is on that count.
          best regards,
          Murty
