Description

Thousands of farmers have committed suicide in India over the last several years. Sadly, the mainstream media rarely reports either the suicides or the cause. This documentary tells the story of India's agrarian crisis and the growing inequality seen through the work of the Rural Affairs Editor of the The Hindu newspaper, P. Sainath. Through sustained coverage of the farm crisis, Sainath and his colleagues compelled the government to take notice and act.
