महाराष्ट्रातील दुष्काळग्रस्तांसाठी मदतीचे आवाहन!

सर्व मराठी मंडळांची गणेशोत्सवाची तयारी जोरात चालू असेल. सर्वांना एकत्र आणणारा, महाराष्ट्रीय परंपरेची जपणूक करणारा हा उत्सव जल्लोषात साजरा करत असतांना, यंदा मात्र एक गोष्ट प्रकर्षाने जाणवते आहे. ती म्हणजे आपल्या महाराष्ट्रात पडलेला भीषण दुष्काळ! यंदा महाराष्ट्र राज्याच्या ग्रामीण भागात गेल्या ५० वर्षांतील सर्वाधिक हानिकारक दुष्काळ असून पिण्याचे पाणी आणि जनावरांच्या चाऱ्याच्या टंचाईची अवस्था अतिशय बिकट झाली आहे. गरीब शेतकरी पुरता उद्‌ध्वस्त झाला आहे. सततची नापिकी, वाढत जाणारे कर्ज, दररोजचा संसार चालविण्यासाठी येणाऱ्या अडचणी याला कंटाळून गेल्या २ वर्षांत १०० पेक्षा जास्त शेतकऱ्यांनी महाराष्ट्रात आत्महत्या केल्या आहेत. त्यांचे कुटुंबीय आज अक्षरश: उघड्यावर पडले आहेत.
