Video Volunteers community correspondent Maya Khodve reports from Nashik district of Western Indian state of Maharashtra where farmers have been a troubled lot. Maharastra has been infamous for farmers suicides due to losses in farming and mounting loans on farmers.
Maya reports from the Trambak taluka of Waghera village where flooding due to rains has spoilt the crop of farmers for this season. Farmers typically invest between Rs. 40,000 - 80,000 depending upon field size and crop. But they are not able to recover even their investments this time.
