Epidemic of Farmer suicides in India due to Globalization

As the world becomes a bigger Global Village, the poorest of the poor either starve to death or they  commit suicide while the richest sip Dom Perignon and eat Beluga caviar. This tragedy is nowhere more apparent than in India where a farmer for whom farming may have been a family business for a hundred generations is forced to commit suicide due to Monsantonization of the country through corrupt politicians. As I state many times before, I weep for the land of my birth for this tragedy is but the tip of the much bigger iceberg that is yet to sweep that ancient land in the days and years ahead.
