After floods, pink bollworm infestation affects cotton crop in Gujarat 14.8.2017 Latest News
If the recent torrential rains and floods were not enough to impact 30 per cent loss in sowing of cotton and groundnut, Gujarat, along with states like Rajasthan and Punjab is witnessing an onslaught of the pink bollworm. Farmers and traders fear an additional loss in cotton and production by 20 per cent from the pink bollworm infestation in the fields, thereby restricting arrivals and pushing up prices ahead of the new crop year which begins in late September. The pink bollworm infestation coupled with recent floods could lead to an overall fall in production of at least 30-40 per cent, though resowing of cotton and groundnut have begun in several parts. Cotton and groundnut have so far seen sowing in an area of 2.4 million hectares and 1.4 million hectares, respectively, of which 25-30 per cent area have seen complete loss due to floods, even as state government's assessment is underway.According to farmers, the pink bollworm infestation has caught on to entire fields of cotton and .

Proud to be Indian 12.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
As we celebrate 70 years of India's Independence, let's take justified pride in the wonderful land and culture in which we were nurtured. A cradle of human civilisation, our motherland has an ancient heritage of greatness. The Indus Valley Civilisation flourished in our subcontinent over 5,000 years ago. Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus originated in India in times when humans in Europe were still hunting in the forests for food. Lagadha's Vedanga Jyothisa, an ancient text on astronomy whose earliest version dates back to 1400-1200 BCE, has astronomical calculations, calendar-related studies, and lays down rules for empirical observation to help plan religious functions. Today, India is the only country after USA and Japan to have built a super computer relying mainly upon homegrown expertise and resources. India produces the second largest number of scientists and engineers in the world. Our highly evolved schools of philosophy; our many languages each with its unique literary treasures; our eminence ...

A taste of Gujarat 11.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
As I admire a beautiful plate of panki, a bright yellow spice-filled pancake wrapped in banana leaf, placed before me, a thought crosses my mind that Gujarati cuisine is more than just dhokla and khandvi. Made of rice flour, besan, curds and salt with an assortment of spices, panki has a soft and lovely texture that instantly melts in my mouth. This state in western India is known for some lip-smacking delicacies that are famous across the world. On my recent trip to Gujarat, I tried to gain an insight on the vast repertoire of Gujarati food, taking in all the sights, sounds and smells of the region. If there is one state in India that is known for its vibrant colours and creativity, it has to be Gujarat. As the Gujarati saying goes Surat nu jaman ane Kashi nu maran (He who dines in Surat, dies in Kashi and attains salvation), the Gujarati's love for food is indisputable. Known for its high nutritional value, the cuisine employs different cooking techniques and makes the best use of its homegrown ...

Going the Parsi way 11.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
If tucking into a plate of 'Kheema Pancake' or 'Lamb Brain Cutlet' excites you, then 'My Way Little Dinette' is your answer. It serves Parsi cuisine, which has a great mix of flavours and caters to those who love a different taste in their meal. The cafe, which is in the Central Business District, sees an interesting mix of customers who like trying different things. Ask Nozer Daroga, the owner, about the place and he explains, "Frank Sinatra's song 'My Way' was my favourite song and the name for the place was derived from it. And I decided to stick to Parsi cuisine as that's my traditional food," he says. Parsi food is understood to be a potpourri of flavours from Gujarat and Britain, he points out. "We have some items which have a continental touch to them. But most of our dishes like 'Sali boti' or 'Patra ni machi' are conventional items, which would be great delights for non-vegetarians," he adds. For the vegetarians, there is the 'Dahi bhindi', where one can see an interesting conglomeration of curd ...
