VIDARBHA JAN ANDOLAN SAMITI HAS ASSURED OF THEIR HELP (16th Mar 2010, 2315 Hrs)
Exactly a week ago, 10 farmers in Vidarbha region had committed suicide, which was reported by Kishore Tiwari of Vidarbha Jan Andolan Samiti - VJAS (see Times of India dated 11th March 2010) due to debt and distress. Each time, I read about farmers’ suicide my heart cries from within and I wonder as to why we all are allowing such a crime to happen on our face. It is this news that changed my life and on 12th March, every thing seemed clear to me.
I browsed VJAS site and called Kishore Tiwari, who is the President of the NGO. I then mailed him requesting him to provide me with all the families’ details (wives and children’s name, village addresses) so that I can visit them in person to understand all the reasons as to why they lost the men of their houses. In the morning I got his mail and he has promised all his support and will provide me addresses of those 10 affected families. In ten days time, I will be visiting these families and do what is required to regain their lives after what they have lost…
It is not an easy task to deal with death even when our parents or grand-parents or loved ones get old and not forgetting all those who are fond of pets… so imagine what a family faces when the head of the family choses to end his life because he sees no sign of life being better… how do these families live when such a drastic step is taken by the farmers? In the 80 odd days of 2010, already 147 farmers have committed suicide in Vidrabha Region, i.e. almost 2 farmers are commiting suicide every single day in this region… each time, I eat my food… I realize how precious it is becoming, which is tainted with blood of the farmers…Yes, it is sad the humans of the world! Are you listening?
The sooner I will get the addresses of all these farmers’ families I will be heading towards Vidarbha Region with whatever help will be in my disposal. Since yesterday, I have been busy mailing everyone about my movementrequesting them to come forward and the support have been so great! Humanity surely has shown its sign of existence with all the support I am getting from all over the world.
The two words 'Never Fear' from an old lady writer-poet Fellpony from UK has given me great courage to start my movement… come join me with your precious one rupee donation.

ENCOURAGING REACTIONS & SUPPORT FROM FRIENDS (14th Mar 2010, 1530 Hrs)
Yesterday, the day was hectic but really worthwhile in every which way… Support and reactions from friends were indeed encouraging and heartwarming… so that means I am really not alone in my mission. I am blessed to have friends who think alike to support such a difficult mission.
While people (a writer IT professional Abhijit Rudra from Calcutta; Josie, a granny poet from London; a poet-writer Ron from Holland) I have never met in person (they follow my work at www.greatwriting.co.uk & blog) have been showing their concern and support in their own ways, friends in Mumbai from various fields have not only pledged their support but they also guided me in the right way. Indeed, I felt blessed!
Sameer Gambhir and Jaya Bhattacharya (Film & TV actor) have lend me all their support by discussing various pros and cons of the movement in great detail as we spend near about an hour and a half… they have also pledged financial support in setting up the basic necessities and I know such great friends will be always there by my side in this movement. Another great friend AA from Hyderabad has even donated Rs.500/- even before I have started my mission and he has assured me of all help that I would require.
I did messaged some of my celebrity friends yesterday throughout the day… singer Hema Sardesai, actor Naved Aslam, Vinay Kalantari, Fashion Designer Bhumika Chedda, actor Moushumi Chatterjee’s actor daughter Meghaa, photographer Akshay Kulkarni and my Rakhi sister Dr. Anandita Malik have come forward to wish me all their support and best wishes. I know there are many, who would read my blog posts to finally come forward to support the cause in few days time.
In the late evening, I had two T-shirts printed for the movement with my mission’s captions –
200,000 FARMERS’ SUICIDE
1997 – 2009

*** one-man-crusade ***
After a hectic day, I was lost in my thoughts to feel oh so wonderful to see every thing is falling in the right places with precision timings!

GENOCIDE CONGRESS STYLE, CALLOUSNESS, HEINOUS CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY OR SIMPLY THE GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT OF INDIAN CONGRESS GOVERNMENT SINCE INDEPENDEN
GENOCIDE CONGRESS STYLE, CALLOUSNESS, HEINOUS CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY OR SIMPLY THE GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT OF INDIAN CONGRESS GOVERNMENT SINCE
46/per DAY; 1388/ per MONTH; 16,666/ per YEAR = 200,000 FARMERS DEATH IN THE LAST 12 YEARS – CONGRESS LED MANMOHAN SINGH’S GOVERNMENT & THE NATION ARE STILL SLEEPING... Because this is what I call GENOCIDE CONGRESS STYLE…!!!
A nation of 1.25 billion plus, dominated by 70 per cent of the total population depending on agriculture, loses 46 farmers daily and the government of India is not at all bothered about such a serious phenomenon… Genocide of the modern world need not be executed only in wars… it can be executed in a well-calculated manner with some high level governance where in the Congress High Command Sonia Gandhi, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Home Minister P Chidambaram, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, Gandhi Scion Rahul Gandhi and various Chief Ministers of respective states are playing great roles to achieve an all time record 200,000 farmers death in the last 12 years.
Genocide Congress style, callousness, heinous crime against humanity or simply the greatest achievement of Indian Congress Government since
166 Lives lost in 26/11 Mumbai Attack & the whole nation woke up to burn candles... but when the people who feed the nation commit suicides, NO ONE REALLY CARES!!! Irony of being an Indian!
Truly so, because when 26/11 the Chief Minister of Maharastra and India’s Home Minister were made to step down by the government as well as public pressure… however, on an average 46 per day, 1388 per month, 16,666 per year farmers have been dying since 1997, totaling to a major number of 200,000 farmers who have died due to debt and distress… and YES, neither the Nation or the Prime Minister are really bothered about these deaths… isn’t it surprising? While the Home Minister and Chief Minister of Maharastra is more concerned to release an SRK movie…
Where are we heading folks and truly so I feel ashamed to be called an Indian, where the Finance Minister is more concerned about the 311 billionaires to raise petrol and diesel price rise and give subsidies to all private airliners and the metropolitans are more concerned about – ‘Where’s the party tonight?’
What is more surprising is that the Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee reveals and claims that the rising price in essential food items are benefiting the farmers (THE BIGGEST LIE THE FM HAS EVER UTTERED IN HIS POLITICAL CAREER)… so much so that every single day 46 farmers are dying, either because of hunger or else committing suicide… these facts have been revealed by award winning documentary filmmaker Deepa Bhatia in NERO’S GUESTS, who has documented Magsayay Award Winner P Sainath’s long and difficult struggle since the last five and a half years. The article BITTER HARVEST by Radha Rajadhyaksha was published in Times of India dated 27th Feb 2010.
‘No one cares about us’ – is what most farmers say and truly so, while the nation is struggling and complaining about the price rise, no one has even bothered to look into the homes of these poor farmers, whose families are struggling hard to make their ends meet. No relief from the government reaches them in time and even Rahul Gandhi and the Prime Minister have confessed that only 15 paise per rupee reaches the affected farmers… imagine 85 paise are stolen by none other than government agencies (that is how every Congress leaders and government servants are becoming crorepatis nowadays)… So where do we really go from here folks?
Almost 70 per cent of the population is still dependent on the agriculture sector and the the Prime Minister, Rahul Gandhi, Finance Minister, Home Minister and Agriculture Minister are all calming that price rise have benefited the farmers while hoarders (supported by local politicians) have made all the crores… is this what the nation is proud of for its 8+ per cent growth… growth at the cost of 46 lives per day (since the last 12 long years) of farmers who grow food for the nation??? Does this growth really deserves pat on PM Manmohan Singh’s back and the billion plus population should say KUDOS MANMOHANJI… you and the Congress have done a great job for killing 200,000 farmers in the last 12 years…
Since the plight of the farmers have not been heard or solved since the last 12 long years, activist in various place say – ‘Perhaps the only way is to kill, to attack. Perhaps this will open their eyes.’ Now tell me Mr. Chidambaram, if these poor farmers are given such a harsh treatment and no choice at all to survive… why will they not lift guns in their hands to fend for their lives, as it is they are dying because of government policies??? And then you will launch Operation Green Hunt with all your might like George Bush to kill them by calling them NAXALS… IS this how the Indian Government operates to suppress the poor and downtrodden Mr. Home Minister??? 311 Billionaires Vs 200,000 Dead Farmers!!! Where is the justice?
As Sainath puts it – ‘In the last 15 years INEQUALITY has been our FASTEST GROWING SECTOR as it has grown faster than at any time in our history since the British Raj.’ While banks are too happy to lend the rich loans at 6 per cent with no collateral to buy another Mercedes, the poor farmers are not even given loan amounting to just Rs 8,000 at decent rate that they can afford to pay… now why this injustice is meted out at the nation’s farmers who are toiling hard in hot sun to feed the nation and starving their own families??? It was the same Rahul Gandhi, who shouted aloud at BJP for laughing at a farmer’s death… so what has he done really to control the 200,000 deaths in various villages of the nation??? Well, we all know he was busy promoting Shah Rukh Khan’s film for 4 long hours in Mumbai to show Congress’ might in the state!
A release of Shah Rukh’s film is more important for the Gandhi Scion and the Congress rather than save 46 lives of poor farmers, who are dying daily in various parts of interior India…
The nation wants answer from the callous government as to why nothing is being done to save these lives… aren’t they precious like the elite who died at Taj and Trident Hotels on 26/11? Are they not Indians Mr. Prime Minister? Is this what the biggest democracy of the world is all about? Kill the poor and feed the rich…
P.S: I do hope more bloggers will write about this to spread the message worldwide about the GENOCIDE our Congress government is responsible for… will the International Court of Justice punish the Indian leaders for such a heinous crime???
EXCLUSIVE BLOG - http//support4suicidefarmersfamilies.blogspot.com (13th Mar 2010, 1030 Hrs)
The blog is dedicated to all those poor Indian farmers, who have committed suicide due to debt & distress and no sign of relief from government. All related post on Indian Farmers & My One-Man-Crusade Experience will be posted now in the exclusive blog
THINK HARD: What will happen when all our farmers will commit suicide or else migrate to cities in order to survive... YES! There will be no food...Prices will skyrocket & the government as usual will blame on farmers without really helping them...
As it is farmlands are being sold to big corporate companies to establish their car factories and other industries… farmers are being made guinea pigs to serve greed for these rich corporate houses. Less farmland means Less Produce and more the prices will rise in future. If these farmers are not supported enough to continue with farming, from where will all the food grains come? Have you ever thought about such a grave situation in coming years… what will happen to your children when they grow up? It will definitely lead to man eating man phase… there will be war every single day for food.
I may not be able to serve all the farmers’ families but yes, a little start will save at least a few of them to lead their lives with dignity and they will work hard for the progress of the nation in a very-very small way. I am all set now and from 18th March 2010, you may follow the blog for every day update of my mission.
Till then, join me in helping the farmers of our nation in a small way.
