The person who does the work of farming is known as a farmer. Bangladesh is an agro-based country. All the people of our country directly or indirectly depend on agriculture. A farmer is a very important person in our country. Generally a farmer lives in a village. His house is made of corrugated iron sheets or straws. In our country the life of a farmer is not so good. He is illiterate. He does not know how to cultivate his land scientifically. He earns his livelihood by the sweat his brow. He gets up very early in the morning. Then he takes a little breakfast. He goes to his field with his wooden plough and a pair of bullocks. He cultivates and prepares his land with simple hand made tools . Sometimes he is too busy that he can not make time to go home for his lunch. In good or bad weather he has to work hard. He does not know what rest is. A farmer has both pleasures and pains in his life. He gets pleasure when he has a good harvest. But he gets pains when his crops are destroyed by droughts, floods or cyclones. Though a farmer works hard he does not enough to eat. He lives from hand to mouth. He also suffers many diseases. An ideal farmer is an asset to the country. Though the service of a farmer is great important, he does not get his due respect. So we should have soft feeling for him so that he can lead decent life with dignity.
