THE STORY:

Humanity should not have any boundaries, I wish to make considerable contribution to "Naam Foundation" which helps families of farmers who committed suicide and also helps farmers who are going through financial crisis because of severe drought this year. It is an indication of the great distress in the agriculture sector in India. So in just six months this year, the farmer suicide toll has already touched 1300 (66% of the 1,981 cases recorded in the entire year of 2014). The figure has also crossed the 1,296 cases recorded in the state during the 12-month span of 2013. Farmers are committing suicide mainly due to bankruptcy or indebtedness, family problems and crop failure, said the latest report of the national crime records bureau. The premier central agency has correlated the data for the first time, amid outrage over growing incidents of suicides in the farming community.
