आयुष्यात काही नाही करता आले कि लोकं शेवट शेती करतात असा लोकांचा समज झाला आहे. बापानं शेती केली पोर्या पण तेच करणार अस टोमण देखील लोक मारत असतात. शेतीकडे येणाऱ्या तरुणांचा ओढा आता वाढतो आहे. अनेक सुशिक्षीत तरुण आता आपल्याला शेती करताना दिसत आहेत.

२५- ३० वर्षापूर्वी तुम्ही शेती करत आहात. त्यात तुम्ही पदवीधर आहात म्हंटल तर काय परिस्थिती होत असेल हे सांगण महाकठीणचं. पण त्यावेळी शेतकरी होण या एखाद्या युद्धाचा विडा उचलन्यासारखचं होत. असा ध्येयवादी विडा उचलणारा साठीतला तरुण म्हणजे बाळासाहेब झांबरे- पाटील हे होत!. 

पंढरपूरजवळील कासेगांव त्यांचे गाव. सांगलीतून पंढरपूर भागात येऊन शेती करणारा अवलिया माणूस तसे ते द्राक्ष बागायतीत नानाविध प्रयोग करणारे द्राक्षमहर्षीचं आहेत.

पंढरपूर तालुक्यात कासेगांव परागणा मोठा आहे. या परागण्यात द्राक्ष, डाळींब हि नगदी फळपिकांची औद्योगिक शेती होऊ शकते असा ठाम विश्वास घेऊन नानांनी सरळ तासगाव सोडल आणि थेट कासेगाव गाठल.  शेतीत प्रयोगांची अशी खुणगाठ बांधून तासगांव तालुक्यातून अनेक शेतकरी ३०-३२ वर्षाखाली दाखल या परिसरात दाखल झाले.
तीन दशकापूर्वी बाळासाहेब झांबरे पाटील यांनी १९८६ साली कासेगावात उधारीवर व पीक उत्पन्नाच्या परतफेडीच्या हमीवर ४ एकर शेती घेतली.

द्राक्ष बागायत करुन नानांनी ४ एकराची १३ एकर शेती केली. पण २००६ साली १३ एकर द्राक्षबागेत काहीही फायदा झाला नाही. तरी ते न खचता, न डगमगता, नव्या उमेदीने पुन्हा द्राक्ष बागायतीसाठी झपाटले, आणि पुन्हा कधी मागे वळून पाहिले नाही.

२००६ पासून नानांनी १३ एकर द्राक्ष बागायतीतून ४०० एकर माळरान घेऊन त्यांवर नानांनी शेतकरी वर्गाला प्रेरणादायी ठरेल अशी ४०० एकर भांडवली द्राक्ष बाग फुलवून, ३०० ते ८०० रोजगार निर्माण करुन आदर्श निर्माण केला आहे. त्यासोबत दररोज शेतात ३०० ते ८०० शेतमजुरांना काम देणारा हा शेतकरी राजाचं म्हंटल तरी वावग ठरणार नाही.

विशेष म्हणजे एवढे काबाडकष्ट आणि अहोरात्र शेतात राबणारे नाना हे निर्व्यसनी आहेत, पदवीधर आहेत, अजातशत्रू आहेत. ना कोणाशी बांधावरुन वाद, ना कोणाशी कटकट, ना एक रुपयांचा अपहार, ना कोर्टाची पायरी, ना दवाखान्याची पायरी, असे श्रमातच ईश्वर माननारे नाना हे पुरोगामी मात्र आस्तिक विचाराचे एक आदर्श शेतकरी आहेत. तरी ते आजही प्रसिद्धी पराण्मुख आहेत.

नाना, आजही वयाच्या ६५व्या वर्षी अहोरात्र कष्ट करुन आधुनिक शेती करतात. नानांच्या शेतीत ४ कोटी लिटरपासून २४ कोटी लिटर पाणी साठवण क्षमतेची ४ शेततळी आहेत. नानांचा आधुनिक शेतीचा द्राक्षपसारा २ साखरकारखान्यापेक्षा निश्चितच सरस आहे, यांत शंका नाही.

शेतीत घाम गाळून परिस्थितीवर मात करून आदर्श निर्माण करणाऱ्या, उमेद जागविणाऱ्या, शेतकऱ्याच्या कष्टाला कोणीही सलाम करेल. सफेद कपड्यांना डाग न लावता भ्रष्ट खादीसमोर झुकण्यापेक्षा , चिखलात पाय ठेवून आपल्या काळ्या माऊलीसमोर झुकलात तर कोणाला भीक मागण्याची गरज नाही, हा आदर्श नानांनी निर्माण केला आहे. असो.

शेतीत फायदा नाही म्हणणाऱ्या शेतकरीबांधवांना प्रेरणा देणारा, पदवीधर असुनही शेती करणारा, तासगांवहून येऊन पंढरपूर मध्ये शेती घेऊन द्राक्षबागायत करणारा, अहोरात्र औद्योगिक स्तरावर कष्ट करणारा शेती मात्र कोणत्याही शासकीय पुरस्कारापासून वंचितचं राहिला आहे. असो सरकारला जग येईल अशी अपेक्षा आपण करूयात.
