ABOUT THE FILM: Nearly two lakh farmers have committed suicide in
India over the last 10 years. But the mainstream media hardly reflects
this. Nero´s Guests is a story about India?s agrarian crisis and the
growing inequality seen through the work of the Rural Affairs Editor
of Hindu newspaper, P Sainath. Through sustained coverage of the farm
crisis, Sainath and his colleagues created the national agenda,
compelling a government in denial to take notice and act. Through his
writings and lectures, Sainath makes us confront the India we don?t
want to see, and provokes us to think about who ?Nero?s Guests? are in
