I am one of those who believe that the gap is widening. I hope things get better with this, it is nice to read such articles. But if all farmers get into IT, who will grow our crops :--?

They get the choice to not grow crops if they don't want to :-) and still get to stay in their village!

These small changes should hopefully have chain effect and maybe innovative schemes to making farming also lucrative may not be far behind...
