Food is essential for all humans to survive. There’s no denying that. A world without food is almost unimaginable. Now think of where this food comes from or better phrased, who grows this food for us? Our farmers do. The least that we as a consumer can do is pay respect and gratitude to them.

On Kisan Diwas, people across India celebrate with functions, programs, workshops, events, and much more. The day is celebrated across schools, universities, offices, educational institutions, and even in homes. Farmers are thanked and honored for their patience, hard work, and determination. After all, they are the strongest pillars of economic development and survival.
