Growing and reforming the lives of our country's Annadatta and putting them on the global map is our aim. We look forward to minimizing the market's inefficiencies and touching upon the lives of our farming community”
“We feel Mental health is something that we all need to talk about. Everyone experiences a version of anxiety or worry in their lives, and maybe we go through it in a different or more intense way for longer periods of time. There is no cast, no scar, and no stitches. No X-ray with evidence of pain. Rarely is their physical evidence of mental illness, but for those suffering from pervasive mental illness, the pain and exhaustion are deep and heavy. We are happy to tie up with Mahadevasth Technologies. They are a digital platform for Emotional Wellness that brings Healing through Awareness, Diagnosis and Evaluation. This tie-up will contribute towards Agribid’s initiatives in bringing growth and positive developments in the lives of the Farmers. Having good mental and emotional health is essential, we need to prioritize it.” He added.
