Watch this conversation between ThePrint’s Editor-in-chief Shekhar Gupta and Amul’s managing director R.S. Sodhi, as they discuss farming, farm reforms, the country’s changing consumption habits and Amul’s future business plans at length.
Sodhi argues that the three farm laws passed last year are beneficial for the farmers but the government has failed in communicating their benefits. Politicisation of the issue, coupled with the farmers’ relentless protest, puts the government in a tricky position, he says, pointing out that the government completely backtracking from the reforms may not set the right precedent.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
