When over 30000 farmers started their walk from Nashik, I am sure they had no idea of the distance they’ll be traversing. But one thing I am sure of is, they were ready and prepared for what may come.
These images speak leaps and bounds about their hardships and struggles which have made them leave their farms and march on roads.
Let the pictures do the talking.
That peace and calm on her face after the whole day’s march should be enough to wake you up from sleep.
While we are sleeping comfortably in our houses, open skies are the only shelter for them.
No matter what the distance, these bleeding feet will travel it all.
These painful pictures should make your blood boil.
Hope today you have a nice lunch and dinner. This is the picture of someone who puts food in your plate and is currently walking all the way to Mumbai just to ask the BJP Government to fulfill their promise. Bon Appetit pic.twitter.com/axBKTCPjMc— Joy (@Joydas) March 10, 2018
And such is the level of unity among them, that it could put us to shame.
Favourite photo from #KisanLongMarch this afternoon — Farmers have no access to electricity so Lakshman Bhasre from Tryumbakeshwar Taluka has been marching for 6 days with a tiny solar panel on his head. He uses it to charge his phone and help other marchers charge theirs. pic.twitter.com/3He32abd4z— Pragya Tiwari (@PragyaTiwari) March 12, 2018
When those feeding us are out on streets, how is it possible for us to sit comfortably in our offices and homes.
A sea of red has engulfed the entire city.
Old, young, children, or men and women. All have resorted to roads, telling their painful story.
I did join protest with the farmers for a few km on Eastern Expressway Really pained by hearing there grievances, but the farmers looked determined and said “We will not return back till our demands are fully met by the corporate friendly government” #KisanLongMarch pic.twitter.com/A7NgwdUfn8— Bring It On 👊 (@TigersBloodCell) March 11, 2018
And if you are having your meal, these pictures should make it even it harder for you.

People who work hard day and night to give us food are on roads. Is this the future?

These are no “Urban Maoists” @poonam_mahajan, these are the people who feed the nation. But yes they also have the power to bring down arrogant, out-of-touch corporate agents like you and your party!#KisanLongMarch #FarmersMarchToMumbai pic.twitter.com/UReZnkTz3y— CPI (M) (@cpimspeak) March 12, 2018
It’s time to support them and stand for them.
