“Between 1995 and 2007 more than 200,000 farmers committed suicide in India. […] In my view, this is an act of helplessness in a state of momentary despair: a call to society for help. Help not only for the farmer’s immediate family members - widowed wife, old and ailing parents, young children, but also for farming in general and for other farmers, like him.” - Verena Hanschke/Floriana Gavriel (thanks, Hugh!)
