File under: The Siddhi of PR
Cotton farmers in the Vidarbha region of Maharashtra, India are killing themselves in large number due to the fact that their crop isn't worth much this year. 120 have offed themselves since January, and "massive" government aid packages don't seem to be helping.
Into the fray jumps Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. The result, more death:
The Art of Living of religious Guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar had also tried to spread the spiritual mantra to the poor farmers. Unfortunately none of them could stem the tide of suicide.Looks like the Art of Living isn't much of an art, nor much about living in that corner of the world.
