My Crops were destroyed and I have three children —RIP Gajendra Singh.
Irrespective of the political discourse, yesterday’s suicide by a farmer from Rajasthan during the AAP rally at Jantar Mantar in Delhi is a cruel reminder of the reality that confronts millions of farmers, labours of many other impoverished in our country.
Government comes and goes and it will continue so, but it is imperative that we act and act quickly, to lessen the suffering and pain of the poorest of the poor.
My heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family. I only hope that just like the brutal gang rape of Nirbhaya in December 2012, the death of Gajendra Singh in April 2015, turns out to be the clarion call for suicide prevention in our nation.
We can never ever fulfill the loss of a life but the world at least then has the consolation that this untimely and unfortunate tragedy was not in vain.
Do join OPTIONS for sparing a thought for the departed soul.
