When one thinks of Punjab, one imagines fields of gold, rich farmers and plenty of bonhomie. But, dig a little deeper and you will find that small farmers in the state are caught in the vicious cycle of debt and poverty. "We want to eat delicious food like kheer and Dal but we don't get it. What we get is only saag. Sometimes we don't even get roti and have to sleep hungry. This happens twice or thrice a month," said Harpreet Singh, a farmer's son.
