After Gujarat, 2019 LS polls may be an open race 18.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The next Lok Sabha polls may still be two years away, but the outcome of the Assembly elections in Gujarat will certainly hold importance for both the BJP and the Congress. The aggressively fought polls in this western state were key for the two parties to draw inspiration for 2019. And to face a string of Assembly elections in 2018. In the end, both parties seem to have a lot to take home from the Gujarat results to face the next parliamentary elections. It being the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP was determined not to lose the high-stakes battle. Nor was Congress Rahul Gandhi prepared to leave an inch to his rival. It was easily one of the most fiercely fought elections in recent times. The BJP won in the end but was undoubtedly made to sweat; the result was some sort of a revival for the Congress. It has now lived to fight another day. The party may have lost, but the Gujarat showing has yet given it confidence to face the 2019 polls. For the first time, the Congress performed ...

Gujarat, HP verdict to set the tone for poll campaign in state 18.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The results of the Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh Assembly polls have come as a morale booster for the state BJP. The ruling Congress, on the other hand, may have to tread cautiously in order to retain power in Karnataka - the last major state where the party is in power. The spotlight will now entirely be on Karnataka with the Assembly elections due in April/May next year. The results in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh have also set the tone of the poll campaigning in the state. Mondays victory has provided the much-needed stimulus to the saffron party, whose campaign has remained slack and lacked spirit. The party is now hopeful that its rank and file will go for the kill ahead of the polls. Besides, the party leaders are also confident that they can now seek the mandate on the Modi governments controversial reform measures - demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax (GST) - which the Congress had been using to corner it. However, the saffron party has a tough task in ensuring some of its leaders do not ...

A distinctive paddy variety 18.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Boregowda, a farmer in Shivalli village on Mandya-Melukote Road, is popular as Bhattada Boregowda (Paddy Boregowda) for his paddy conservation efforts. Inspired by Natavara Sarangis paddy diversity fields in Odisha, Boregowda initiated paddy conservation efforts in Mandya district in 2007. Thereby, inspiring hundreds of farmers to shift from high-yielding varieties to indigenous ones. Later, he came in contact with pioneering farmer plant breeders and learnt the basics of developing farmer bred varieties. In 2008, while walking through his Gandhasale (a paddy variety) field, he observed a distinct ear of paddy that reminded him of Sona Masuri, a high-yielding variety. "Then Sona Masuri was the most sought-after variety for its fine grains, and there was no local variety that could compete with it," says Boregowda. He collected the grains from that ear, and cultivated them in a separate patch in the next season. For the next four years, he continued the experiment through seed selection and separate ...
