Thank You For The Food On My Plate: Viral Ad's Tribute To Indian Farmers

A viral ad urged Indians to thank farmers for providing food

New Delhi:  Indians hold food close to their heart. All important events in our country are centered around meals - weddings, festivals, going out with friends and even childhood memories. While we leave no opportunity to praise what we're eating, we often forget to thank the person who ensured that we got our meal - the farmers. An ad campaign that has gone viral has urged people to say a long due 'Thank You' to the Indian farmer. The farmer that sows the seed and nurtures it for months to guarantee it reaches us. The farmer that works all day in the simmering heat to take care of his farm.

The hashtag #ThankYouKisaan was one of the top trends on Twitter as the tributes poured in.
 
In 2015, 8,007 farmers committed suicide in India, due to widespread drought in several states and rising debt. 

Next time you post a photo of your food on social media, maybe #ThankYouKisaancan replace #foodporn
