Farmerru Soldierru

ನಮಗೆ ಅನ್ನ ಕೊಡುವ ರೈತರಿಗೆ ನನ್ನ ವಂದನೆಗಳು
ನಮ್ಮ ದೇಶ ಕಾಯೊ ಯೋಧರಿಗೆ ಈ ಆಟೋ ಶಂಕರನ ಸೆಲ್ಯೂಟ್

I somehow get annoyed when people talk about farmers or soldiers as if they are sacrosanct. To me, they are just another profession they have chosen. Somehow a labor in a garments' factory does not enjoy the same sympathy as a farmer, even though they both might have their own problems. Only an immature mind can make a statement like "We would all be hungry if not for the farmers". Its as if telling we would all be a naturist society if not for cloth manufacturers!

Blame Lal Bahadur Shastri for making it that way. Though it's not his fault but it was a time we depended on American help to feed ourselves and we were fighting a war. It made sense then, it was a war cry. Jai Jawan. Jai Kissan.

Luckily things have changed.
