Millet flakes were a huge hit at the 5th Organic and Millets Mela organised by the Agriculture department in association with Jaivik Krishik Society at Malleswaram Government School Grounds on Saturday. The flakes made from the most commonly consumed millet ragi as also foxtail, barnyard and kodo millets, etc, were sold by more than 150 stalls at the two-day mela.

However, unlike the calm exposition of the Bhagwad Gita, the towering colossal figure seemed not engaged in holy discourse but had a more warlike posture. Our guide Made corrected us and said it was not Arjuna but Ghatotkacha! Built in 1993, the sculpture depicts the battle between Bhima's son and Karna in the Kurukshetra war from the epic Mahabharata. Perceived as loyal, intelligent and powerful, Ghatotkacha is revered by the Balinese and is a key figure in wayang kulit (traditional shadow puppetry) of Indonesia. As a flying knight responsible for air defense of the Pandavas, Ghatotkacha is supposed to provide safety and spiritual protection to all ...

Last year, I could get only Rs 15 per kg of pineapple. But the shopkeeper sold it for Rs 25 per kg." She also urged the ...
