Farmer Suicides in the UK and India

There is something wrong with the agricultural world these days when you can find farmer suicides in the UK as well as in India. This is a very complex issue and not something that you can fix very easily as it has gone global (Via the WTO, etc.) and very deep into various economic silo's. But when a farmer can commit suicide even in an advanced developed country such as the UK which is neck deep in subsidies, great financial systems, NGO's, suicide prevention lot, etc. etc. one wonders how far India can go...

All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
