Farmers are bound to live a pitiable life in Punjab and the credit for all this goes to the administration who is least bothered about their demands and requirements.
Dharnas, agitations, strikes have become a routine for these farmers and many a farmers have even lost their lives while agitating for their demands but nothing has been done so far to benefit this hard-working class.
Last year a farmer named Bahadur Singh from Bandala village , Amritsar lost his life while agitating.
The family members of the farmer alleged that he was killed during the lathi charge by police but the police brushed off by saying that he had no injury marks on his body and he might have died of cardiac arrest. Further adding to the agony, his dead body was handed over to his family after four days.
The family of the framer is running form pillar to post demanding justice, but so far the mystery of his death has not been solved.
Alex Singh , a well-known film maker based in Melbourne, Australia, on his trip to India came to know about this incidence that police killed one of the hard working farmers from his village in a strike conducted by Farmer Union.
Alex is known for his innovative way of showing his resentment towards the heinous crimes through his movies.
While in India , Alex met the victim’s family to find the root cause of the tragedy and then decided to highlight the plight through his documentary.
“To showcase the atrocities faced by the farmers at the hands of administration and to highlight the plight of the farmers, I decided to make a documentary film ‘A Day in the world of world Feeder’ highlighting the situation of farmers in Amritsar,” tells Alex .
Written and directed by Alex Singh , ‘A Day in the world of world Feeder’ stars “Harp Farmer and Amber Farmer in the lead roles.
The film highlights a very sensitive and controversial issue of farmer’s situation in typical north Indian Village, in the district of Amritsar,.
In this film , Harp Farmer portrays the character of the farmer and has very beautifully showcased the life of an ordinary, common farmer in north Indian and the hardships faced by them.
“During the making of the film I had a firsthand experience of the hardships that a farmer has to undergo. I met the victim’s family and listening to them made me aware of various problems which they have faced,” Alex says.
“The documentary brings you the realistic interviews of the victim’s family members and impact of this catastrophe on them. The documentary also highlights the current demands of Indian farmers,” says Alex.
“In the last few years many farmers have committed suicide and the trend is on rise, but the government has failed to fulfill their demands. This film is an effort to highlight the atrocities which the framers have to face.”
“ Through this movie I want to highlight the plight of the farmers and help them in getting justice,” he adds.
