Achiever's Success Story
Dhirendra Kumar B Desai, Farmer
Agriculture has been the only source of income or livelihood of Mr. Dhirendra’s family. His father inherited farming from his forefather . Since it was the only source of my family livelihood he had to leave his schooling in-between and shouldered the responsibility of farming.
He knew that he had to face a lot since the traditional farming was full of hardships like – lack of enough agricultural equipment, flood, shortage of water, financial crisis etc., even then he started cultivation.
Moreover he had to work in co-operative associations at his village to get extra earnings to feed his family.
Experience has taught me that if we do farming timely with planning using technology, we can get more benefits. Every year using modern technology he kept learning some innovative trends in agriculture. Now he is successful and progressive.
Being the youth, he desires to give contribution for the welfare of the nation and society as well. He wishes to set an example of his success as a milestone and set a new trend for the others so that the farmers of our nation can follow his footsteps.
