Good old Rahul Gandhi, the man on the move. God and then to the farmers to 'learn' of their woes. The poor sod had all the time in the world earlier, what prevented him to roam the desolate countryside and learn of the woes, when mummy's govt was being plagued by regular and astronomical numbers of farmers suicides? The land that is cultivated in India is still the same as it was earlier, but the population that it supports is double that size. How the dickens, can it support the farmer? People from the farms must move out and into other jobs that are near their homes so that they do not lose touch with their folks. The truth of the matter is that giving out unending subsidies, loan waivers, doles, compensation, will not change the livelihood or being cash strapped in the life of the farmer. It will merely be an interim relief that will vanish in the hay soon. The solution is to ensure that there are other avenues readily available to the farmers to divert the excess that depend on the farm.
