Sadhguru shares a simple model to double India's farmers income, which can catapult Indian economy! He shares that the two biggest challenges for Indian farmers are investment in irrigation, and lack of negotiating power in the market. To address these - he suggests farmers coming together into Farmer-Producer Organizations (FPO) with minimum 10,000 acres of land. Private sector can establish community micro-irrigation for groups of farmers on chargeable basis. Another opportunity for private sector is to convert 'filth to wealth' - using 36 billion liters of sewage from India’s cities and towns, we can micro-irrigate 6 to 9 million hectares. For corporate sector, this is an investment with very substantial returns, both financially and in terms of providing millions of human beings with a life of dignity and prosperity.

The basis of human civilization is its ability to do agriculture. Transforming mud into food is agriculture. India has over 12,000 years of history of doing agriculture. Sadhguru tells us - around 300 years ago, India was the most industrialized nation on the planet. It is only when the British destroyed it, that people moved into agriculture for subsistence. At the time of independence 77% of the population was into agriculture, and still about 60%. This is an inefficient way - and we need to move them into other trades, crafts and skills. Because in the last 50 years, farmers have moved from subsistence farming to cash crops, their nourishment levels of dropped alarmingly - this is a serious concern. So, organized agriculture at large scale is needed on priority.
What is our connection with the outer ecology? Can we separate ourselves from everything around us? Sadhguru tells us that both the human and the cosmic body are made of five elements - and that they are inseparable. The composition of human body is 72% water and 12% earth. He tells us how with the mastery of these five elements, one can take charge of their well being.
The economics of our contemporary society is such, that if we succeed, we will fail. It is like the man cutting the branch of the tree on which he is sitting. We now understand that life on Earth is interconnected in a very complex structure, and is not independent transactions. Our body itself is built from Earth, it is just a piece of Earth, through the food that we consume. So, life is happening as one, it's only psychologically we feel separate, but physiologically it is happening as one. When we meditate, especially if the leaderships meditates, you will experience that you are not separate from each other. Once that happens taking care of Earth is a natural consequence.
