Working in plush offices, earning high salaries and living up-market life styles, there are many among us who are not even aware of the agrarian crisis of India. For many, a weekend is all about catching up with the latest movie and partying on the latest dance beats. 2 lakh farmers have committed suicides and we have become the perfect bystanders. Let us all make a resolution this year- that we will not become Nero’s Guests. If there is time to change, it is now.
Please do watch Nero’s Guests – a documentary by Deepa Bhatia, based on Sainath’s coverage of the Vidarbha situation.
