India ravaged by commerce

"Since 1997, 182,936 Indian farmers have taken their lives and the numbers continue to rise. According to a recent study by the National Crime Records Bureau, 46 Indian farmers kill themselves every day – that is roughly one suicide every 30 minutes – an alarming statistic in a country where agriculture is the economic mainstay"


Peasant farmers are killing themselves at an alarming rate because their crops are being ruined. Everyone is to blame for this scenario. Monsanto defying nature while manufacturing manipulated seeds; Indian farmers not knowing what they're buying. It's safe to say that the creators of agent orange that are using Indian deities to sell their products aren't doing the world a favor.
