Like Dr. Abdul Kalam said, You have to dream before your dreams can come true. This essay is about my dream of India 2030. There will be new technologies, inventions, discoveries and developments in various fields in the next decade, which ease people’s lives. This essay is a portrayal of my wishes about our country, which are possible with available technologies.
- An ideal cropping system should be in use, that taps natural resources efficiently, providing stable and high returns, and avoiding environmental damage. As food is a basic need, farmers will be educated on the best practices to adopt and given more technical advice.
- Farmers will be aware of the usage of fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides, and aware that nutrition should be given to the soil, and not to crops.
- Government will build appropriate policies (like crop insurance) and regulatory frameworks, to ensure no undesirable social consequences occur.
Water Management 2030
Water is a global problem, with local solutions. Uncertainties of climate change and rainfall call for water resource management.
