When I was growing up, my family owned a small farm in eastern India. 

They didn’t have a lot of money and their crops were not as productive as those of our neighbors in Delhi.

But I was lucky enough to live in a town called Kanpur, in the state of West Bengal, where farmers are just as skilled as their counterparts in Delhi but produce less than half the amount of food. 

In the 1970s, I joined a group of farmers who came together to form the Kanpur Farm Cooperative Society. 

My group also took on a task to raise money for an NGO called Kanbarama that was working to reduce malnutrition in Kanpur. 

This project eventually led to the establishment of Kanbaramas farm and it continues to this day. 

But my group had to work with the government of Kanpur to help the farmers achieve their goals. 

It was in my role as a farmer that I first met M.S. Ramaiah. 

The Kanbaramas work started in 1975 when the Kanbarams farm was first established.

In 1976, the Kanbaraas were the first group of cooperatives to be granted land to establish a cooperative society. 


S Ramaah and his father had worked in agriculture for the previous 40 years, having founded the Kanabas family farm in 1976. 

After a few years of hard work, the farm had grown to about 15 hectares (50 acres) and was owned by the Kanbaas family. 

Today, Kanbaras is one of the largest cooperative groups in India, with about 3,000 members. 

We’re lucky to have an organization like Kanbarami. 

As a farmer, I don’t have to worry about my food supply being compromised, because it is owned by Kanbaravas. 

When the Kanbamas group was formed, the government was struggling with food insecurity in India.

It had implemented a scheme to provide cash subsidies to farmers and was also facing a food crisis. 

A farmer was worried about his crop being ruined because the government couldn’t supply enough food to meet its needs. 

I was not worried at all about the food crisis, but I was worried that if the government didn’t provide enough cash, I would lose my farm. 

Because I knew that the government would have to provide food, we had a plan in place to help farmers through the crisis.

The Kanbaraas group took on this task. 

Every year, the group collects a sum of money for Kanbaraman. 

There was a fund in place, which we called the Kan Barama Fund. 

Once the government collected the money, the money would go towards paying farmers. 

So, every year, we collected the funds. 

One year, I collected over 2,000,000 rupees (about $3,800). 

The next year, it was over 4,000 million rupees. 

Now, we collect money for the Kanbanagaram and the KanBarama Trust for every farmer. 

Since then, we have also established the Kanberama Trust. 

Over 2,500 farmers have received this trust to pay their loans. 

These funds are then put towards the development of Kanbanarama, and Kanbaraji. 

During this time, the farmers in the area were not getting any income.

The money was going towards paying loans and providing food to the farmers.

As the years passed by, the problem got worse and worse. 

Our farm was also a cause of contention between the Kanburas and the other farmers.

We had been providing them with food for about 10 years, but they were still not getting enough food.

We had to change our strategy. 

At this time in our history, there was no other organization like the Kanarama or Kanbaraj. 

By working with other farmers, we created a structure which allowed us to solve this problem. 

Initially, we were only focusing on the Kanbayans farm, but as we grew, we started to think of the farm of Kanbama as the same. 

That is why we started working with the Kanwalas.

When we were working with them, we also tried to bring the Kanbalas in as partners. 

From this point on, we formed a cooperative system with the cooperation of the Kanmawas and Kanbawas.

In our current situation, there is no other cooperative system like the one we have today. 

You can call it the Kan barama or the Kan-barama. 

 You have the Kanboramas and they have the Maramamas, which is the Kanbandarama.

This is our cooperative system. 

Kanbarama is an umbrella term.

It includes the Kanharama, the Marawari, the Kansarama and the Bhatkarama.

I think this is an interesting term.
