Farmers must make a gift of their entire lands to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh this coming Republic Day and spare him from making any more visits to Vidarbha. Let the Agriculture Ministry, Commerce Ministry take over all farmland and agree to give farmers a minimum monthly salary so that the children of farmers, can all leave be rid of their lands for contract farming by Tatas, Ambanis, Walmart, Tesco, and settle down in cities for at least a decent life in future. Farmers of India have become akin to the the Hans Christian Anderson story of the Emperor and his new clothes

Tolstoy writings on civil disobedience and non violence carry an unforgettable comment - "I sit on a man's back, choking him, and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by any means possible, except getting off his back." This is now the relationship between the Indian government and Indian farmers as the ministers make flying visits to Vidarbha and flood hit areas of India, professing great concern for farmers and their problems and releasing press notes on farmer suicides.
