The translation follows:
“I think now is the time for me to commit suicide.
” The farmer on his bed recuperating from his failed-suicide attempt continued “When I tried to commit suicide just for spending 2 lakhs in 3 years, isnt now the time for the suicide for spending 50,000 in just a week towards hospital costs?
