NEW DELHI -- Kartar Singh, a 75-year-old sugar cane farmer from the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, has been camping alongside thousands of others at the edge of New Delhi for over two months.

Together, they are fighting the Narendra Modi government's contentious agriculture laws in one of the largest mass protests the country has seen. Their show of determination has drawn global attention from the likes of pop star Rhianna and climate activist Greta Thunberg.
