Now the hot and dry weather begins. He does not have enough to work in his fields but still he has a lot to work by tending to his cows, sheep and goats. Once again in June/ July with the beginning of the monsoon, he is back in his fields and the cycle goes on and on.
Just imagine how simple life our farmer lives. We ought to be thankful to the farmer all the time who is the main instrument in getting us the foodgrains to eat. I remember when why my son was hardly 6 or 7 years old when he asked me what do I pray when the food is served.
I told him, “You are not aware of the food that lies in front of you how it reaches us.” I told him that I always pray to God to bless the farmer who grew foodgrain for us, cared, transported to the market, the shopkeepers, the flour mill and the person who cooked and served us the food.
He got very pleased to hear these words. God bless our farmers!
