FINANCIAL OWES AND STRESS DRIVEN FARMER SUICIDES IN INDIA

J. Gladston

Abstract


Stress is an ubiquitous problem. It breaks out when the demands made on an individual’s time, energy, resources, skill, and ability exceed tolerable
limits. Farmers in India are embroiled in nancial problems. They borrow money from various sources to meet their mounting agricultural expenses.
The soaring prices of all agricultural inputs, repeated crop failures and crumbling prices for agricultural products adversely affect the seasonal incomes
of farmers. This brings about an awe-inspiring gap between their highly volatile income and fast growing nancial responsibilities. They are, in fact
driven to their wits-end. Unable to with stand and the stress problems arising out of them their nancial owes they choose to end their lives with out
trying to nd out any other viable, acceptable and tolerable means of escaping from their life threatening stress problems.
