    When we are being the largest exporter of rice, then why the poverty in India exists. When we being one of the largest producer of milk why 40 percent of milk in the market is synthetic milk. Instead of standing in a queue for milk we stand in a queue for admission in hospitals

    Really a crap one! because of the green revolution the fucking efficiency of soil have come down to 300% You cannot copy the Agri model of the US or EU to India as the clear understanding of the Economic model should be made. In the US and EU the more subsidiaries are give to agriculture Produce than the other sectors. For EU farmers security bill states that it gives the subs. of about 5 billion to get the yield of around the 4 billion which means the farmers get paid for they did nothing , but in this case its different. In India more than 60% population doing small agriculture. If this fucking revolution happens this would also leads to monopolization. you must understand the situation when a Pharma giant Bayer have interest in buying a Seed company Monsanto
