A typical Punjabi is often considered as an extrovert, a social fellow who likes to eat well, dress well and even if he is in a tight spot, he would remain in “chardi kala.” Punjab is an agricultural predominant state of the country and credit is an important factor in the adoption of technological innovations. In the Present paper attempt has been made to examine the phenomenon of suicide among farmers in Punjab state in relation to growing economic distress in the rural areas.
