SUNNA, INDIA - APRIL 08: (ISRAEL OUT) A farmer rides past a cotton field on April, 08, 2008 in the village of Sunna in the Vidarbha region of Maharashtra state, India. A wave of farmers' suicides has hit rural India over the last few years, with reported estimates of 10,000 succumbing annually due to poor mental health linked to black market loan repayment difficulties, seasonal discrepancies such as droughts and floods which the WHO attributes to climate change, and rising living costs.
