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.

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 ...

Erratic monsoon: floods in some parts, water scarcity in some others 28.7.2017 Latest News
Infamous for its vagaries, the southwest monsoon has created two contrasting water situations causing distress in several parts of the country. In the first two months of its four-month of journey, the monsoon has brought in surplus rains in some parts and scanty showers in some others. The rains have wreaked havoc in parts of Gujarat, Rajasthan, West Bengal and Assam leading to loss of life, property and standing crops. At the same time, parts of Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra have got inadequate rains, aggravating already prevailing drought-like conditions there.Data from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) showed that from June 1 to July 27, the southwest monsoon was over 62 per cent surplus in most of Gujarat on an average, almost 55 per cent surplus over Rajasthan, 5 per cent excess in West Bengal, while it was 20 per cent deficient over Karnataka, 19 per cent short in Tamil Nadu and 28 per cent less in Kerala.Ironically, it is 10 per cent deficient in Assam
