    Incredibly sad for the farmer and his family, but sad for the wildlife too - no habitat, everything is about humans and thier greed, we are the real culprits, nature has given this earth to millions of species, not just human beings.

        Animals losing their habitats, where shall they go? Rapid growth of potion making animal life miserable and angry. Nature habitats must be preserved.

              They deserve it! A gentle creature has been transformed to a brute by greedy farmers. You take the habitat away from the elephants for your forming needs, you pay the price. They too need a space to live and raise family. The human being are the worst and we are the apex predator.

                You talk as if other workers who work in India does not matter. India despite growing with record food output is yet to modernize when it comes to cultivation. Where I agree with you is government could do better job channelizing, improve the yield per hectare etc. I still stand by my comments and the science shows the human species evolved later and the quadrupedal creatures developed before the primates and homosapien! We have no right to develop all the forest into farmlands!
