Framer suicide in India

"The direct linking of the Indian and international markets has worsened the agricultural crisis, so every time the price rises (or crashes) in the international market, the Indian farmer bears the burden. We have two kinds of small and marginal farmers in India today - those who have committed suicide and those who are about to."
