- A solution to the migrant crisis in Odisha

By

MO CHASHI BHAI is an Initiative by Maruti Foods Training Centre (MFTC) and MO SAHAY for solving the migrant crisis in Odisha by skilling & making farm women & migrant laborers of Odisha self-sufficient through diversified integrated farming systems and use of technology like IOT, Machine Learning(ML) and Artifical Intelligence(AI)

Migrant laborers and rural women are being trained at Maruti Foods Training Centre (MFTC) on diversified agriculture practices, demand-led crop production, value addition, marketing of farm produce. 

Mo Chashi Bhai aims to create a technology led farm-to-fork Value Chain to:

  • Rehabilitate migrants by helping them become Agripreneurs (Agricultural and Allied sector Entrepreneurs)

  • Help farmers get better return for their produce

  • Ensure minimum wastage by elimination of inefficiencies in the current Agri value chain 

  • Provide fresh farm produce to consumers at the right price

The Mo Chashi Bhai value chain 

I AM A FARMER

I am a farmer

I toil in the field

Hot summer

Torrential rain

Keep sweating.

Sow seeds

Grow crops

Feed your family

My nation

Elder son is a soldier

Fights on the border

Climbs mountains

Walks on the snow

Carries heavy weapons

No proper food

No shelters

Sharp eyes on enemy

Fights till the last

Protects our border

Our mission:

Keeping nation safe
 

Younger one a MIGRANT

Runs your factory

Builds the roads

Builds buildings

Loads the trucks

Cooks your food

Drives your car

Your children to school

Tiny tin shed is his home

One dry roti some onions

Little daal

Tap water

Sleeps on the ground

among ten others

Parents old and sick

Have stories to tell

Fed the nation

Forty years

Lots of pride

Lots of peace

Lots of gratitude

For people and country

For Bapuji and Babasaheb

For Nehruji and Netaji

For Shastriji's

Jai Jawan

Jai Kishan

Free India

Free children

 

Generations after generations

We feed

We fight

We love the nation

 

My uncle

Lost his leg

In 1962 war

Wheel chair

Adventure stories

Kids love

We too will fight in the border

Broad smile

Proud soldier

 

Other uncle lost his hands

In the flour mill

No regrets

His brother grew wheat

He processed to feed

Lost his hands feeding the nation

Parents old and sick

Have stories to tell

Fed the nation

Forty years

Lots of pride

Lots of peace

Lots of gratitude

For people and country

For Bapuji and Babasaheb

For Nehruji and Netaji

For Shastriji's

Jai Jawan

Jai Kishan

Free India

Free children

 

Generations after generations

We feed

We fight

We love the nation

 

My uncle

Lost his leg

In 1962 war

Wheel chair

Adventure stories

Kids love

We too will fight in the border

Broad smile

Proud soldier

 

Other uncle lost his hands

In the flour mill

No regrets

His brother grew wheat

He processed to feed

Lost his hands feeding the nation

We are farmers

We are workers

We are the soldiers

We love our nation.
