It’s that time of the year when villages across India come alive with colour and energy. Farmers and their families, having harvested nature’s bounty, offer heartfelt thanks to the sun, mother earth, cattle and all elements of nature for helping them do their job. North or South, East or West – name, rituals and events may vary, but the intent is the same – an expression of gratitude. And rightly so! Every minute of every day, millions of farmers in India, live and work close to nature – toiling away to reap earth’s treasures for the benefit of all.
For over four decades, we at the Murugappa Group have been deeply involved in agriculture through three of our businesses – Coromandel, EID Parry and Parry Agro. We have grown together with our farmer friends across India, and felt we should make an effort to raise awareness about the farmer and farming among the urban population. So join us as we do our best to raise awareness, bust myths, go beyond stereotypes and find and promote small but meaningful ways in which each of us can make a difference to our farmers.
Well, when someone asks this question, you might come up with several answers ranging from doctor to teacher to police officer or maybe even the wi-fi service provider. But what doesn’t strike you immediately is that one important job without which nothing else would matter.

The Murugappa Group plays a vital role in the country’s agriculture sector. For decades, the Group’s companies have helped the farmer both in what goes into the fields, and what is produced from them.
Farming and agriculture is more than just a job or business, it is a way of life in itself!
Here we feature people who quit their corporate careers to take up farming. They share their experiences and all that being a farmer has taught them. Read, comment, share and do tag other people you know who’ve taken up farming!
