Indian agriculture remains the economy of small and marginal farmers. These farmers remain excluded from the fruits of development and are pushed to the periphery. Their exclusion is the net result of development paradigm adopted by the Indian Government over the past six decades. This process of exclusion needs to be countered by a process of inclusion by building people’s socio-economic as well as human capital. The introduction of Lifelong Learning for farmers by Commonwealth of learning has demonstrated that a bottom-up and participatory approach to learning will not only contribute to the growth of socio-economic capital but also include them in the mainstream economy. Lifelong learning enables small and marginal farmers to negotiate with the economy of exclusion and design their destiny. This paper presents the outcome of the Life Long Learning introduced in Tamilnadu and its potentials to engage the economy of exclusion. It is an explorative study based on the secondary data available on this subject.
