In order to recognise the integrity of the farming community and honour their zeal towards adopting new farming technologies, Sonalika recently conferred ‘Sonalika Krishi Samman Awards 2021’. The awards celebrate the innovative spirit in the farmers and is Sonalika’s effort to motivate them to keep going strong. Sonalika felicitated as many as 15 farmers that have adopted ‘out of the box’ approach in making a significant difference to the Indian agri-ecosystem. On the occasion, Sonalika also released “Mitti Ke Sapne, Mazboot Irade: Kahani Kisano Ki” – a book that encapsulates the inspirational stories of all such 15 farmers who have contributed extraordinarily in the agri-sector development.
Highlighting the awards, Surbhi Mittal, Director – Sonalika CSR said, “The incredible contribution of farmers towards the development of Indian agri-ecosystem is an inspiration for all and we truly acknowledge their role in the survival of humanity. Farmers today are willing to go beyond the conventions in creating innovative solutions that make agriculture convenient and profitable for all. And moreover, they are also playing a significant role in maintaining the natural balance by caring for plants, trees as well as animals, which is commendable. ‘Sonalika Krishi Samman Awards’ is our little effort to express gratitude towards the “Annadata” (farmers are widely referred as annadata as they produce and supply anna – the foodgrain) of the nation for their invaluable contribution to Indian agriculture.”
“With our latest book – “Mitti Ke Sapne, Mazboot Irade: Kahani Kisano Ki”, we have tried to bring to the foreground the splendid efforts of 15 farmers who have changed the way one can look at the agriculture sector. With this book, we also aspire to educate the future generation about the diversity of the Indian agriculture system and how they can also look at agriculture as a profession,” she added.
Agriculture is the backbone of the Indian economy and a primary source of livelihood for the majority of our population. Farmers across India have been graciously contributing towards the development of the nation with their tireless efforts every single day. Each farmer has a unique journey, which remains full of ups and downs. However, it is their passion and strong determination which empowers them to outshine all the difficulties and come out as a winner.
