Last week, two Farm Bills which bring in sweeping reforms in India's agriculture sector were bulldozed through Parliament. This happened while farmers and Opposition parties were holding widespread protests saying the reforms will be a death knell for India's agriculture sector.

Resident Parliament nerd Meghnad S explains what the reforms are all about, and how they will affect farmers.
