Thousands of farmers die every year due to the unpredictability of monsoon. In 2012, 13,754 farmer suicides were reported by the National Crime Records Bureau of India. To tackle this problem, a campaign run by skymetweather.com – #HelpTheFarmer has taken the initiative to make accurate weather forecast easily accessible to all.

A video which is part of the campaign shows a little schoolgirl following her father everywhere all day. Even at night, when everybody is sleeping, she is awake, keeping an eye on him.

She lives in a constant fear…that her father might commit suicide like many of her friends’ dad who were also farmers like him.

A rope kept in her house aggravates her fear. She hides it underneath a piece of cloth. Unaware of her daughter’s concern, the father goes about his chores, waiting for the rains. At least, he doesn’t show his anxiety in front of his daughter. And then one day, the girl finds the rope missing. What happens next?

    After 7 decades of Hindu rule, Farmers are dependent on monsoon, 70000 Crores gone in Politicians Accounts in Maharashtra alone, which was allocated for Irrigation. Farmers are comitting suicide for 1 lac rupees loan and these govts. will make a Staue in SEA of Shivaji for 2500 crores to be contracted to MNCs. Same way Sardar will send erect for 3000 crores while farmers will hang in Gujarat. All the while Indinas are kept busy with Raja Bhoj Gangu Teli dramas or Mandir Masjid Dramas. And to top all that Modi is selling Land, Water and Air to FDIs. As of now Foreign debt of India is 20% GDP. Nationalist RSS and BJP and Modi are digging grave for Bhaarat Maata and Indians will be slaves again. All those who have BLACK ONEY are getting their children Educated and settles in US and Europe. And common man will face the RUIN brought on by Desh Bhaqts.

      The theme is excellent. Show it on Kisan channel of Doordarshan. And the message at the end should be in regional languages / Hindi too.
