Drought in world's top 3 rice producers may boost prices for 50% of world's population 2.5.2016 DNA: Money
Nearly a decade after a spike in global food prices sent shockwaves around the world, Asia's top rice producers are suffering from a blistering drought that threatens to cut output and boost prices of a staple for half the world's population. World rice production is expected to decline for the first time this year since 2010, as failing rains linked to an El Nino weather pattern cut crop yields in Asia's rice bowl. A heat wave is sweeping top rice exporter India, while the No.2 supplier Thailand is facing a second year of drought. Swathes of farmland in Vietnam, the third-biggest supplier, are also parched as irrigation fed by the Mekong river runs dry. The three account for more than 60% of the global rice trade of about 43 million tonnes. "As of now we haven't seen a large price reaction to hot and dry weather because we have had such significant surplus stocks in India and Thailand. But that can't last forever," said James Fell, an economist at the International Grains Council (IGC). Rice inventories ...

Previous govts named schemes after members of one family: PM Modi 1.5.2016 DNA: Wide Angle
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday charged the Congress-led governments of the past with pursuing "vote bank politics" and naming schemes after members of one family and reached out to the numerically significant Nishad community in Uttar Pradesh as he launched solar-powered boats for plying on river Ganga. Addressing a gathering on the famous Assi Ghat on the banks of the river Ganges here, Modi said, "Our approach is in stark contrast with the governments of the past which cared only for vote banks and devised poverty alleviation schemes which never aimed at eradicating poverty as such but only garnering votes of the poor during elections". . Without naming the Nehru-Gandhi family by name, the Prime Minister recalled that after the launch of seven satellites recently, "we felt a desire to name these after Deen Dayal Upadhyay and Shayma Prasad Mukherjee. "After all, have we not seen so many schemes being named after members of just one family. But ultimately we heeded the call of our conscience and ...
