Hi, friends I am Ravikiran.

I think villages are villages. They may be strength or weakness both.

As strength, we get all the food products and all necessary raw materials and labor support from the villages.

As weakness, the development activities in villages are less because of corruption, illiterate peoples, careless living. Nonutilization of features given.

What I want to say is villages should not be judged as weakness or strength of our country.

We just have to work on improving the odds of it.

The Indian village is the heart of our country economy because 65 - 70% of our GDP depends on the agriculture sector. So it's not a weakness of our country but it required lots of investment to making new technology for the agriculture sector to making easier for our former that do hard work for making better production.

There is no doubt that our villages are our strength.

Our 75 percent GDP depends on villages. But this is the time to improve our strength. Agriculture mainly depends on irrigation and precipitation of rain is not uniform in our country and to solve this problem we should save the water with water harvesting technique.

And in village lots of water were wasted by flood irrigation so, in place of flood irrigation, our villagers need to adopt drip irrigation.

Some crops required more water and some requires less so crop rotation is also required.

We need to make the villagers smart, village will automatically become smart.

Villages are our strengths, only they are the true people who work for the well being of people of India. But due to lack of education and exposure to the outer world, they are easily exploited by landlords and others.

The government should give them more subsidy, so that they can be happy to live a proper life with their income. Unless they are happy doing agriculture, we are going to have food shortage for the growing population in India. It is the responsibility of urban people, to make them aware of exploitation and help the children of our villages to get good education. So, they have always been our strengths, because they have given few most successful people and food for the nation.

Hi, guys, this is Krishna,

Villages are always important because it's not only the reason they are doing farming, more or less our culture and our families birth history starts from the villages only.

If we are from urban or rural it won't matters,

Villages are always the strength for India.

Major problems in villages:

1. Lack of technology (parents are not encouraging their children to study agriculture B.SC or BIO Technology).

2. Education (compare to city education, village teachers teaching, and education far better but they are facing the problem with communication and way of thinking).

3. There is no proper support from the government (even they has to pay officer for soil checking. Etc).

4. Superstitious.

5. Even most of the rural people are leaving their villages and coming to the urban areas as a daily labor because there is no work for them on villages. If it continuous like this we have to pay a lot of crisis in regular life.

Yes, my friends, you all are right but there is nothing happening to say that our farmer is our strength, etc.

Yes, it is right.

But first, we need to develop our villages, our rural areas, our slum areas, then think about the agriculture developing.

We all know that the slums area people are at the low level. They have no rights to fight for their family, also we can say that they are fully unsupportable.

I am also from the middle class, we middle-class people think that ''yes, they are poor, they need help but we can't do anything for them''.

''when we put our self at these people then we realized what is a pain, what happen when you live in small, slum, dirty home instead of your good home with unpleasant rules ''.

- We all who are living in metropolitan cities are dependent on them for our living.

- India is an agricultural country and 70% of the population who are engaged in this profession are living in villages.

- Many of us who are now living in metropolitan cities are originally coming from villages.

- All the well-known names like Ratan Tata, Lakshmi Mittal, Dhiru Bhai Ambani etc who have made a mark in the world have also come from the Indian villages.

- There are many talented and bright minds in Indian villages who have the capability to change the face of India.

- Villages are the backbone of India without them India might have to face food shortage. All other industries are also dependent on villages for their raw materials.

- The production units of any big company are found at some small places owing to the low cost of infrastructure and abundance of labour.


- The level of education in Indian villages is very low.

- There are less number of job opportunities in villages.

- As the whole word is technologically advanced but Indian villages are still lacking in this area.

Our Indian villages can be our greatest strength if the rural markets and the kind of talent available there are capitalized in a proper way.

My dear friends as I hail from the village.

The village is the strength of India as a few days back agriculture contributed to India's GDP 75% but there is no denying the fact that the contribution towards the GDP is decaying per year as 13.5% in 2013. India is the 2nd largest producer of dry fruit in the world and is exporting its agriculture product to more than 100 countries. If we look towards the defence 70% villagers youth is contributing to serving the nation. Now the point of concern about the villages of India is the lack of facilities to youths like Educational institute, Hospitals, youth development institutes and to the farmers the lack of awareness of new technology etc. Coming to a conclusion the villagers are simple and their surrounds are the lack of facilities. If the government provides equal facilities to urban areas the villagers will be the strength of the country.

Villages are the important one for the development of India. In which farmers are making India as powerful by agriculture. Moreover, India's real culture is there only. But in city sides, we can't see that cultures.

According to the topic about Indian villages first of all.

I want to introduce myself that I am also a village live in a small village in Himachal Pradesh.

Villages are the heart of the country because our country depends on upon villages. The most important things to survive like air water and soil villages are also important. All types of grains crop food material provided by the villagers. If these people do not farm then how all Urban's can survive if these people think that we have also gone for a good job and instead of farming open a showroom on his land then how the dependents getting their needs if villages took the shape of cities then how we will get crops n other product they lead to our economic strength. The farmer stops farming because they do not get good prices. They work hard but fail to get actual prices. Corrupted peoples took their own benefits. So we have to appreciate the villages. These are our strength.

Dear friends, as per my observation, if we I mean if we want to develop our India then we should give priority to the village. Because India's most of the place occupied by village before I go to my opinion I would like to confirm you that I am from village, I have observed that their big problem is income if we will give importance to provide them work at village that would be main way to develop it, so I am suggesting some points what will be helpful to us.

1. Provide some income sources to the village like some manufacturing companies:- who will provide income to those people who are less educative.

2. Provide call centre/software:-who will give the income sources to educative people.

Look here you can raise a question like whether they are low educative or they are aware of these work then why will you move our company to village area and lost ourselves the answer is if you will change the location you will get these profits.

1. Low expense:- because we will get their low rate room.

2. Low payment:- every month you will save your payment. What will you give for work?

3. Worker:- you will get the good worker in cheap rate.

One thing you have to do there only you have to make quality only that is so easy train them then everything will be all right.

Hi, friends I am present my views. So please read and forgive me for mistaking.

The culture of villages is better than cities, I think. Because in villages peoples follow old tradition it is proud of India. Villagers think a lot about our country or try to make India powerful. That's why villagers are more in the army they think whole country and one day they lost their life for the country but in cities persons are afraid to death. That is the villager strength of our country India.

Hi everyone, everybody told about their opinions and I am also here to do the same.

That is to give my own opinion.

I am going to tell about the disadvantages of developing villages.

If we develop the villages the nature surrounding the village will get spoiled, Due to various pollutions.

Let us think that every village is now on its way to being turned into a city. Now there will be multi-storied buildings and every facility is available there.

So what will happen to the fields now?

The fields have been turned into apartments so the whole village will forget to farm.

We, India got and are famous for farming and we are going to lose it.

Agriculture is the backbone of our India and we have lost it now.

Whatever be the taste in Maggi or Burger from subway or McDonalds. Nothing can be equal to the sambar rice or curd rice.

The Farmers are the people who give food to us, But the city is here to spoil it and give Farmers nothing back, But the destruction of the fields.

For turning a village into a city, There won't be enough space. So we must get down for deforestation, which is harmful to humans.

There will be the threat for both animals and humans if we deforest the forest surrounding the village.

Hi Friends,

Thanks for discussing about our villages.

As per my opinion we should support Farmer!.

Technology is improved so much but the thing farmer is the main resource where we will get the food. Technology will not the FOOD.

For example farmer is doing the ripe for one year. After one year nobody buying product. Even somebody buys also people will be asking for very less amount. The same product farmer want to buy then people are asking double amount.

Example : Rice ripe.

With farmer 50 kg - max 1000 RS.

If farmer go to any shop then 25 kg only more than 1000 rupees (+It's not quality product).

Please support farmer. Please buy product from farmer as much as possible. Because buyer also will get good product, Farmer also will be so happy.

And you don't depend government.

We are thinking to government will change our village. It is not possible because we are need to develop villager skill and change think of villager.

2. Establishment of bathrooms in each and every village.

I read all your sayings and I came to know many things after I read. My view about Indian Villages is in favor that the population is very vast in today's era. For such population a large amount of food is require. To meet these food demand for such a huge population has become a major problem in India.

But Villages here is only the medium to fulfill these demands. Every year the amount of food is increasing due to the growing population. We can not imagine our life without food and the credit goes to Indian Villages.

By these points we can say that Indian Villages is strength for our country. We can not imagine our life without Indian Villages.

As per me, villages have strength points as well as weakness points.

Once India was called golden bird due to villagers. We are trying to separate village from urban area inspite of knowing the fact that urban area came into existence from village itself. If urban area is a kite then villager is the thread. About 70% population of India is in village.

We are all aware of the facts that people of India is getting shelter and agricultural goods from villages. As India is well known for their traditional and cultural value which can be seen more in villages. If anyone really wanted to see the fresh climate, than village is the perfect place.

Villages also have some weakness for India. Villages have bad education system. All the old and bad superstitious things can be seen in the villages. Villages have lack of hospitality and school etc. Village is also a source of unemployment polio patient is mostly seen in villages due to illiteracy.

So government should focus on this problem to make our country really a developed country.

Do you know "How " because urban areas came from villages they were not directly grown & who are living in urban areas they were from village ago some year we all used to live in village and when we got development and we made separate areas and that is called urban and who are taking interest in agriculture those are called villager I think villager are same working as urban people.

Different is that they are working in field and urban people are working in the office. Company's shops & molls I think villages are not weakness of India it's are power of India we are getting everything from village like vegetables, rice, flour means all are thing. Whatever we are eating wearing. These things are coming in the city's areas and city's motivating all goods which is coming from village and than selling and we eating wearing those products.

So I think both are correlated and both are power of India villages and city's. It's not so long time when all India will be digital because now villager are interested in education and government also taking steps about the villages making there good school, hospital. Railway connectivity and also village of base of country.

Thanks friends.

I am visiting my village this summer for a good 2 weeks, and thinking of involving myself in helping with villagers on one or two issues they are dealing with I am aware of one such big issue currently they are struggling is water due to less rain last few years in the region tube-wells have dried up so they have to depend on tankers supplied from neighboring village.

But I like to think and come up with longer term solution, any suggestions, ideas, opinions on this topic is most welcome.

Hi friends,

I think villagers are not even considered by our government, government provides land and all facilities for foreign industries to grow here, and simultaneously they destroy agriculture land reserves, breves, factories, no water, no land maintenance, no agricultural facilities for farmers. Now we have to eat from outside country.

In India most of the population are villagers. Even though, their problems are not getting notice. They are not getting much importance that they deserve. India is totally depended upon villagers for vegetables and other such agricultural products.

Even though the suicide rate in India among villagers are on a rapid increase. Most of them commit suicide because of the bank loans they couldn't pay. Even if the government is providing them with many facilities they are not reaching to the right hands this should be noticed.

There should also be a proper system to notice the problems of villagers and to provide them with solutions for the major problems such as education, sanitation, proper housing, water availability etc. India will only have a true development only when the whole villages in our country get developed.

Hey guys.

I think villages are India's strength because villages are the places where they grow food which we eat in villages there are many trees which give them fresh oxygen if compared to cities the pollution in the cities are the reason for many breathing diseases. If we have ac in our room the coolness it gives is very less compared to the freshness and coolness we get by sitting under a tree the immunity power in villages is more than in cities.

In cities we eat foods like pizzas and burgers but if we think a little we can know that they are all made by the wheat and other plants cultivated by farmers but nowadays many of the villagers migrate to cities because of less income and they are attracted towards the fashionable living in the cities this has to be reduced at last I'd like to convey that the farmers also should be respected and honored as without the farmers we would all starve to death.

Hey I'm Laasya Venkatesh.

I think Indian village are the strength because most of our Indian income is from the occupation chosen by the villagers. Most of our Indian occupation is 60% dependent upon agriculture. Artist in villages are the one who are preserving the Indian tradition and cultural art.

Villages are the places where most of the foreigners prefer to stay as they feel very comfortable as the weather is very pleasant. Cool breeze which gives you a nice refreshment. They prepare such kind of yummy food as they use natural herbs and plants which gives an awesome taste to the food. Most of our country's income is due to the agricultural which is the main occupation done in India.

I think we can decide about the fate of Indian villages by how our government functions. Currently they are definitely lagging India behind, because of loss of basic outreach to them.

IF we see the statistics, agriculture contributes 13.9% to the GDP and 48.9% of Indian occupation is towards the same. Assuming almost all the above occupation is from villages, this is the major problem.

Our government has not done enough to bring this population to the services group which contributes 60% to the GDP but with only 27% occupation. Now again there are a variety of things to be done by government.

Short term:

1. Effective implementation of schemes like NREGA, PDS, welfare schemes etc.

2. Improving financial aid to villagers in terms of opening up of businesses.

Long term:

1. MOST IMPORTANT- education- not only on paper, but indeed bringing a revolution in the same.

As Socrates said "all good is knowledge and all evil is ignorance". This one thing can revolutionize villages. These are just some of the steps. On a microscopic level there are many other points.

It is not the villages which are not ideal to live it is the people who make them ideal to live, It is hard for a villager to come out from his village and settle in a city. If the villagers will get all the facilities which are available in the cities then the life would have been different.

According the our respected PM every minister should adopt a village I think that is a good move to make the life of our villagers better. I am staying in a city but I always thought of moving to a village. The only thing which stops me is the source of income.

Hi guys,

In my view villagers are backbone of our country India. They produce us milk products, rice, wheat, etc. In villages there is very less pollution. They live in unity. We should learn from them how to behave and how to live. Coming to my point I think they are the threads if we are kites 'I mean they are our teachers and we learners.

Village is a perfect place to fetch tourism because we can enjoy the climate of the village. If no farmer where you can get rice or wheat?Remember that farmers are the feeders of our livelihood and a farmer is from village only not from city or town. In this way I take advantage of village.

I don't want to put down village by using the word 'weakness' even though villagers migrate to cities as they have a proper reason of lack of education. They live very friendly. But in cities if any accident happened in front of the also they will not bother.

Like sky did not have an end even villagers also did not have an end for their greatness. There are pages and pages to write about how kind the villagers are. I am proud to say that I am from a village.

Hey guys,

In my opinion Villages are both weakness and strength because I've some points.

Positive points :

+ Villages are strength of INDIA because we all know very well that INDIA is agricultural country & 70% peoples lives in village.

+ Agricultural work totally depends on villages & villagers.

+ In villages we see purity which never find in city, like pollution less area, pure milk items, fresh vegetable & fruits, etc.

+ Villagers are more powerful than citizens, they are more energetic than citizen, they have more stamina than citizen.

+ They are not a slave of machines compare to citizens.

Negative points :

- Villages are weakness of INDIA because it is one of the region of backwardness of INDIA.

- In villages there is lack of education, literacy, knowledge, etc.

- There is no facilities of some facilities like,











- In Villages we see that they marry their daughters in little age.

- There are many children in their family & it is the region of over population.

- Married women live as a slave in villages, they are not allowed to do anything without the permission of her elders & her husband.

- Women have to give birth more & children because the demand of a boy.

- Fetal death cases mostly happens in villages because they don't want girl so they killed her.

So, this is my opinion & I think villages are strength of INDIA but there is need if literacy & government should make schemes to solve all the problems of village.

Hi according to me I think villages are our strength because all our food items comes from villages. The village people mainly depend on agriculture, but now-a-days the village people are migrating to towns because of lack of rain water the food items are not being irrigated and the farmers are suffering loss. Many agricultural schools should be set up to provide awareness among the farmers to improve their agricultural techniques.

Hi my dear friends.

In my point of view villages are both our strength and weakness because only villages can feed all our nation by producing many kinds of eatables to us. And a most important thing we have to learn from villagers is they give respect to others and they give more importance to family relationships. So villages are called back bone of our nation.

At the same time villages are our weakness because many people are not educated. They do not know the technology being illiteracy. And they do not interested to promote their children to higher studies. That's our India has being in the state of developing. So we should try to bring awareness among them in order to develop our country.

I think that village are strength of Indian country.

India is a 2nd populated country in world and 70% population lives in villages.

Major part of Indian economy is agriculture which totally based on villages.

Only the villages is a place where the people help each other and live all of them as like family member. Villagers are very hardworker.

Environment of village is pure & pollution less. Pure milk which is good for our health which also be in villages. Villagers strong than citizen's.

We know that in villages lack facilities. There are not proper hospitals and not good school and no proper road facilities. I think that government should concern about these facilities. If all facility will in village than India will become very strong country and economy must improve.

I am partially agree with this statement. We can consider villages as strength because it provides the foods which is the basic needs of our life. So in terms of basic need things I can say that cities are totally dependent on the villages. Other than these the villagers are also suffering some problem like unemployment, electricity, unaware about the latest technology, money issues, lack of hospitals and schools.

I truly agree that village is our backbone and strength of INDIA because 70% of INDIAN population are still in village and from them 55-60% are depend on the agricultural and cultivation and the rest of 10% people indirectly depend on the agricultural. The GDP also depend on agriculture. The other people are getting food from the village area only. They may go to food market and food bazaar but the retail people are getting the food from the village people.

Not only in the terms of only agricultural but also some other parts like in Indian culture, traditional and environment also good as compare to city or metro.

Villages have now become weakness of India because there is no more cornucopia of crops, since people are dying of hunger. Poor quality of crop is due to lack of education among villagers.

And at this movement in villages there is illiteracy, poverty, unemployment, lack of education facilities, orthodox thinking, no importance to girls, malnutrition at high rates.

My conclusion is that at this time villages are weakness but its not like that we can't make it strength yes we can, we have to, because it is essential for our INDIA for our development.
