This is an update on my previous post mentioning about the sorry state of farmers in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, where in they have been offered a compensation of Rs 3/- cheques ($0.067) for their hunger.
Tommorrow is Deepawali, the festival of lights. The whole nation will celebrate but these farmers won't be able to,
Watch the CNN-IBN report on the plight of these farmers.
It know this is a personal rant of mine. But I feel the apathy shown by the state to these farmers is unpardonable. And this has happened, is happening and unfortunately will happen.
