Every Indian is familiar with the unfortunate conditions in which our country’s farmers live. Low wages, dependency on the weather that changes every hour, and, of course, the worst of them all, when there is no harvest. These circumstances force the farmers to end their lives, and over the years we’ve seen uncountable cases of farmer suicide. It is a huge problem, and more than anything else, it’s their family who suffers.
Skymet Weather , one of India’s premier forecast portals, has made a beautiful video to highlight this, and at the same time, help the farmers with accurate & accessible forecast.
With an initiative this strong to create awareness and help the farmers, Skymet Weather is definitely onto something great. Twitter, naturally, has been quick to react:
