Let me ask a simple question? Which or what is the biggest business community in India? Give this a careful bit of thinking. Would you be surprised, if I say that it is the farming community? The farmer makes great investments to till the land, to fertilise the soil, to buy seeds and sow crops and then finally harvest the produce.
