Driven by the gravity of the situation, N S Harsha produces a number of works that depict the rural-urban divide. His works are derived from his reflections on the liberalisation of the agricultural sector in India and the sale of genetically modified seeds, which in contrast to the green revolution's boast, have led to spiralling debt and even mass suicides among farmers.
