INDIA — Protest reflections: Farmer Surender Singh, 70, sat on a chair next to a truck parked on a highway as part of protests against new farm bills, at the Delhi-Haryana state border, Tuesday. The farmers have been protesting new laws that they say will result in their exploitation by corporations, eventually rendering them landless. It’s a siege of sorts and the mood among the protesting farmers is boisterous. Their rallying call is “Inquilab Zindabad” (“Long live the revolution”). Photo: Altaf Qadri/AP
