These are three pictures of moong fields. In the first picture, there is a green moong crop in the field. The second is a picture of the field post spraying chemical to dry the plant. And in the third the view of the field after two days of chemical spraying.
Actually, these three are the pictures of the business culture in agriculture of those areas, where after Kharif and Ravi, due to the large contracts it is sown as a Zaid crop in summer.
This crop sown in the last week of April should ripen before the monsoon rains in June. For this, the farmer sprays a deadly chemical that dries the plant.
This deadly chemical converts a green field into a dry field in 2-3 days and then after harvesting the moong, it becomes a source of income for the farmer after reaching the market.
Moong is an important pulse that was traditionally included in the diet of sick people in ancient times and today we use it in pulses and moongwadi.
In ancient times, when allopathic medicine was not available and doctors used to cure the disease by putting the patient to fasting. On the first day after breaking the fast, the water of moong lentils was given to the patient in the form of a tonic. And later, every day old rice was given along with moong dal, which is considered to be very healthy.
However, this passion to earn money and agricultural science has made the farmer into an opportunist ? And what happened to the moong that was fed to the sick? See for yourself.
