The 48 year old Devidas Parbhane, who produced a bumper crop this season, has been disappointed with the fall in the onion prices. "Every day, we are hearing news about farmer suicides from drought-hit regions. However, with onion prices touching new lows, farmers like me may be meeting the same fate," said Parbhane, the sole bread-earner for his family of five. Getting into detail, Parbhane said that, he has two acres of farm land in which he grew onions by spending Rs 80,000. "On May 10, I sent 952 kg of onions in 18 gunny bags through a truck to the Pune-based Agriculture Produce Market Committee and received Rs 16 per 10 kg. So, per one kg, it works to one rupee and sixty paise," Parbhane said. Also read: Onions Rs.1 per kg "The total onion was sold for Rs 1,523.2. Out of the earnings, the middlemen took away Rs 91.35 as commission, labour charges were Rs 59 and Rs 18.55, and Rs 33.30 was paid against miscellaneous charges. Rs 1,320 was paid to the truck driver, who transported the produce to APMC." The farmer claimed that he was informed that, the onion prices have been increased, but after several such deductions, he is taking home only Rs. 1. “I was expecting at least Rs 3 per kg. However, I was disappointed after receiving such a deal,” the farmer said. “For four months, I took care of my produce and watered the onions at the time of load-shedding. Forget the profit, I am unable to recover even my expenditure on growing onions.” APMC, stayed away from reacting to the farmers claims. But as per the local media, the trader who bought the onion as saying that produce was of smaller size and inferior quality. On the other side, a delegation of onion traders and APMC members from Lasalgaon in Nashik has met Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis seeking his intervention on the fall in the onions prices.

Here are the 5 reasons, that makes fairy tale romances, almost and always go wrong.1. Dark side Researchers term “benevolent sexism”, as the hidden dark side of the princess/knight mentality, which means believing in the women protection is  used to justify gender inequality.Women who wish to be treated as a princess, gets power in her romantic relationships from being prized by men and placed on a pedestal to be cared for, protected, and cherished. In exchange for this security, though, he gets to be "The Man." 2. Stunts growth Women who is willing to be a princess in the fantasy has one purpose, to exist to be adored. According to his ability to protect the princess, a man’s value as a romantic partner exists. Women, in the real world, may overemphasize their femininity, at the expense of their own personal power.According to the research, women with more romantic goals, would be less interested in mathematics and science careers and also do not experience their worth in other pursuits, having lower self-esteem. 3. Tough to match reality Research says that, fairy tale notion based marriages, concentrating on women protection and cherished for their feminine qualities lead to dismay when both members of the union cannot live up to expectations. In several couples, when men fail in giving this fake fantasy, the women feels defeated and hopeless.Also read: What not to do while arguing with women 4. Adores delicate femininity, but not assertive women The implicit “deal”, for the women willing to be in this kind of relationship, is that she will be passive and let her partner call the shots. Taking independent decisions may not be supported. Every consequential decision, is completely the man's responsibility. 5. Loneliness Research says women, who is keen of fairy tale ideas about romance and marriage, tend to have less relationship satisfaction and a more negative sense of psychological well-being-including depression-than women who are less compelled by fairy-tale ideas of marriage.Over the long term, holding one another to the rigid gender roles can be suffocating. The couple allowing one another to be their full selves have good emotional bonding, along with fun and joy in their relationship.By Phani Ch
