Debt and Death in Rural India: The Punjab Story

Aman Sidhu (Author) Inderjit Singh Jaijee (Author)

Debt and Death in Rural India is a study of farmer suicides in rural Punjab from the mid-1980s up to 2008. Based on comprehensive original research work, it examines various factors ranging from central to state policies and critically analyses political, economic and social trends that have led to the dismal condition of farmers in Punjab.

The study presents a unique trajectory on the issue of farmers suicides and contextualises the problem within a historical and geographical framework. It includes interviews of family members of a number of farmers who committed suicide in the subdivision of Lehra and Moonak of Sangrur district of Punjab, India. Various policy measures to enable Punjab to break out of the vicious farmer suicide circle have been recommended, based on findings of the study.
