20 Farmers Die Of Insecticide Poisoning In Maharashtra, Many Lose Vision
Twenty nine-year-old Inder Rathod, who works on cottons farms, had sprayed pesticide in the field last week. That was the last time he saw the lush fields and fluffy cotton crop. "It was sudden. Soon after the spray, I couldn't see anything," he said. He gets paid Rs. 200-250 per day for the hazardous job. "I have three kids and a wife and I am the only earning member. If my eyesight is gone then I don't know how to feed my family," he said.
