“Lack of good prices
Made the farmers throw away
Their yearly harvest.
This act showed what fools they were,
Not to value their hard work.”

In April this year we read about many farmers throwing away the vegetables and other crops they had grown as they were not getting good prices.  It hurt to see so much waste. It must have hurt them a lot too. So much hard work and no returns. But seeing them dumping the produce and wasting so much food,  I  just wished they had given it to poorer people . They would have been blessed by so many.  Why do they act that way, who makes them follow such actions ?

By Lakshmi Bhat

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle.
We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating.
I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too.
Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I am doing something in my own way. Twice a week I go to a home for the mentally challenged . This has enriched my life.
There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.

It’s sad for farmers who work hard and don’t make any money. My parents grow maize, but this past season the government (main buyer) gave farmers really bad prices that they would not have recouped their costs. It’s sad.
