Sorry... Do you have relatives there?

A similar thing happened here in midwest USA in the early 1930's when our farms were lost to the banks and the government was apparently "in on it". A lot of people committed suicide. My father's family lost their farm that way.

Very sorry to know about your Father's farm. I don't have relatives there. But have friends from there.

Thank you for your kind words. Most people I know from Punjab have Professional jobs so they are OK. However, my prayers also go out to those affected.
