One Farmer's suicide every half n hour in India???

I was shocked to see a news with the same headline as the topic of this blog. I read it this morning in Hindu online and it took me a few minutes to digest the fact that its happening in India. One farmer committing suicide every half n hour is not a nice statistical fact like one Apple iphone sold every 6 minutes in the US. This is such a threating figure for a country like India, where agriculture is still one of the prime survival businesses. Suicide is the last thing any human being would want to do and if it happens at this rate, it is indeed mind-swirling. For more info and detailed analysis, click here.
