Farmer Suicide Stories
Graphic novel about the farmer suicides at Vidarbha, India.
These stories were created as a part of a collaborative graphic novel. It began by interviewing 16 families of different farmers who committed suicide. The material collected from interviews, their daily life and conversations with the farmers family have been documented and converted into a library to refer to, while working on the images.

The BT cotton seed in India that failed in yielding a good crop, led to a spate of suicides committed by farmers who were drowning in 
debts - mainly in the region of Vidarbha. This novel is an attempt to understand the aftermath on the family after the farmers death. 
The stories created are bilingual. I have both written and illustrated them.
