I am agricultural engineer, this background made me capable of sensing the global scenario and need of our people. As it's the beginning of the vision, I haven't been able to get much of the data,but I feel my vision is the need of the people living in area. Water is key issue as change has occurred in aquifer behavior, due to this cultivable land become barren and farmers have no idea how to get this problem fixed. They have less resources to address this problem. My vision is for the people living below poverty line and they lived in very danger vision will not even solve the problem of the locality but it will have a greater impact as a whole. I feel that food should be nutritional based rather as business. Hope someone will sense the deep story inside my vision.
