Indian farmer Pawan Kumar, 52,  a fruit and vegetable farmer who hasn't joined the ongoing farmers protests, gestures towards his field in village Samrodha, in the northern Indian state of Haryana, Friday, March 5, 2021. Thousands of demonstrating Indian farmers blocked a massive expressway on the edges of capital New Delhi on Saturday to mark the 100th day of protest against agricultural laws passed last year that they say will devastate their income. But not all farmers are against the laws. Kumar, an ardent Modi supporter, said he was ready to accept the laws.  "If they turn out to not benefit us, then we will protest again. We will jam roads, and make that protest even bigger than this. Then more common people, even workers, will join that protest. But if they turn out to be beneficial for us, we will keep them," Kumar said talking about the new laws. (AP Photo/Manish Swarup)
