‘Below sea level farming’ a gift to Kerala’s agriculture

IndiaTimes Thursday, 28 September 2023
MS Swaminathan, a scientist known for his work in agricultural practices, was highly respected in the Kuttanad region of Kerala. He devised a package to protect and restore the farming ecology in the area, which earned global recognition. However, the implementation of the package fell short, disappointing the farmers. Swaminathan's efforts led to Kuttanad's wetland agriculture system receiving the Food and Agriculture Organisation's Global Agricultural Heritage System status.

Maldives Boycott Row: Google searches show huge spark in interest for Lakshadweep | Oneindia

In the year 2021, the lingering impact of the Covid-19 pandemic cast a shadow on India's tourism industry. Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter, encouraging everyone to explore the tulip garden nestled at the foothills of the Zabarwan range in Jammu and Kashmir. His tweet not only highlighted the natural beauty but also appealed to experience the warm hospitality of the people in the Union Territory. This single tweet triggered a surge in visitors to the tourism-starved Valley. As we entered 2024, it appears that the Prime Minister has once again employed a similar strategy, this time focusing on Lakshadweep—a tropical archipelago comprising 36 atolls and coral reefs in the Laccadive Sea, off the coast of Kerala. #ExploreIndianIslands #GoogleSearchLakshadweep #SupportDomesticTourism #CelebrateIndianArchipelago #TravelLocalIndia #AkshayKumar #ShraddhaKapoor #KanganaRanaut #SachinTendulkar #HardikPandya #SalmanKhan #RediscoverLakshadweep #TourismUnity #PMModiInitiative #IndianCelebsForLocalTourism #MaldivesControversy #ShowcaseIndianBeauty #IncredibleIndia #CelebsStandWithPMModi #TourIndiaNotMaldives #ChooseDomesticDestinations #IndianIslandExploration #PatrioticTourism #IndianTourismRocks #SayNoToMaldives #DiscoverLocalWonders #UnityInTourism ~PR.152~ED.101~
