KISHORE TIWARI, a mechanical engineer-turned-farm activist, has been working for farmers’ cause in the entire suicide belt of Vidarbha for the past ten years. Tiwari is regarded as an encyclopaedia on information on suicides in Vidarbha. His NGO, Vidarbha Jan Andolan Samiti, is the lone organisation in the region which has documentation of each and every farmer who has committed suicides in the last ten years beginning from the first suicide of Ramdas Chinaya Ambarwar, whose widow Saraswati has still not got any compensation from the government. When Kalavati Bandurkar, who was visited by Rahul Gandhi in July, got huge compensation, it was a triumph for Tiwari.
