PHOTO PROMPT – © Connie Gayer …(Mrs. Russell)
Fifty thousand dollars is lot of money for a farmer with 2 acres of land in a village situated in the middle of nowhere – especially when it is converted in to local-currency. The lure of a city life with cars, LCD-TVs, and other gadgets is difficult to resist. Land acquisition for development is a God sent opportunity.
Up and down the express way
with a bottle of Chivas regal;
that’s the way the money goes,
pop goes the weasel
Farmers are agitating for additional compensation of their land acquired by the government at prices much lower than the market rate.
