Jai Kisan Indeed

Dilip D'Souza, writing about the tragic trend of suicide among debt-ridden Indian farmers: "Think of farmers taking their lives, think of what drives them to do it..."

I cannot understand, though I can try to imagine, the thought-process that takes the poor farmer from the unhappy debt situation to ending his life. (That a suicide is the most impenetrable kind of mystery is another topic...)

Some must-read stuff on this subject on Vislumbres and Locana.
