Vast area of rural India are currently facing a crisis that few outside of the subcontinent are aware is even occurring. Yet, whether or not the world watches, the crisis deepens. At the center of this emergency are the thousands of Indian peasant farmers who have taken their own lives. Like many other crises currently facing the world at this moment there is no one single, complete answer to the farmer suicides in India. However, the general consensus is that a farmer takes his own life due to high interest loans, taken to fulfill India’s pro-industrial farming policies, and ecological damage.
