Data Shows Rural India is Growing, So Why Are the Farmers Angry?

The strike was largely limited to northern and western India, and from the looks of it, was not very successful. But I guess that is not the point here. This strike and other protests by farmers that have happened in the recent past tell us very clearly that the Indian farmer is angry.
