Book on farmers suicides released in Chandigarh

The plight of debt ridden farmers seems to have found an ear which resolved to shake the illusion of many a self-congratulatory eye. The paradox is painful. You are hailed as one of the building blocks of the nation, shoulder to shoulder with the soldiers. A slogan like Jai Jawan Jai Kisaan establishes your glory for posterity. But when the illusion breaks, reality hits hard. That is the paradox our farmers have to face. If they are not rich landlords, they can be doomed to a life crushed by debt and penury.

by M. D. Srinivas, T. G. Paramasivam, T.
