Jai Kisan?

Why are Mumbaikars more concerned about the mid-night bans on clubs more than the farmer’s deaths in the state?

I am all for partying! What is Mumbai without it's parties? What are parties if, like Cinderella, at the stroke of midnight one has to drop one "Catwalk" or "Regal" shoe and run away.

But seriously, considering Mumbai has such a large population of educated and urbane crowd with an even larger heart, why does it not beat for the farmer in India, in Andhra and closer home in Maharashtra who commit suicide? The farmer is the one after all who is responsible for putting all that delicious food on the table for the parties !

How do we get the Mumbaikar heart to beat for Jai Kisan?
