Indian man carries dead wife home from hospital in a final act of love:

A grieving man from the eastern Indian state of Odisha carried his dead wife’s body on his shoulders from the hospital to his village for nearly 12km (7 miles), claiming it’s because he couldn’t afford to pay for an ambulance.

With his teenage daughter sobbing by his side, Dana Majhi wrapped his wife’s body in old sheets from the hospital bed in Bhawanipatna city early Wednesday because hospital authorities reportedly refused to provide transportation for the family. Continue reading »

Monsanto Losing Millions As Farmers In India Rebel & Plant Indigenous Cotton Seed:

Monsanto is losing millions on failed GM cotton. The company illegally pushed a form of Bt cotton into India and Africa more than a decade ago, but farmers are now pushing back by planting their own indigenous seed.

Monsanto is accused of writing laws and then breaking them to enter the market in India, but after more than 300,000 farmer deaths between 1995 and 2013, many of them attributed to Monsanto, the company is finally paying for their misdeeds. The corporation’s greed is linked to farmer suicides throughout Maharashtra, considered the ‘Cotton Belt’ in India.

The Indian government is now actively promoting the use of indigenous seed, and has called Monsanto out for profiteering illegally on Bt cotton seed.

Monsanto has already lost nearly $75 million in royalties this year (5 billion rupees) due to the change in seed choice by farmers. Sales in India have fallen by 15 percent, and though this is a relatively small market share, it is still making a huge impact on the company’s bottom line. Continue reading »

India’s water crisis: 8 liters for 7 days, for drinking and all other needs (RT DOCUMENTARY) :

Almost 16,000 Indian and Pakistani workers are stuck in Saudi Arabian camps without food and water, or visas to leave the country, after construction companies were forced to cut jobs as oil prices plummeted.

There are 7,700 Indians and 8,000 Pakistanis stranded, according to Bloomberg citing the foreign ministries in New Delhi and Islamabad.

More than 4,000 former workers for Riyadh-based construction and management company Saudi Oger have been abandoned in camps, said the Indian Foreign Ministry. It added that India’s Embassy is providing food to workers in 20 camps in Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam. Continue reading »

India Bans Journalists from China’s Xinhua News as Regional Tensions Mount:

Three journalists have been expelled from India including Xinhua’s New Delhi and Mumbai bureau chiefs in what many view as a diplomatic attack against Beijing.

The Hindustan Times reports that India has expelled three Chinese journalists working with the Chinese-owned Xinhua news agency following “concerns” flagged by intelligence agencies. The journalists’ visas were revoked and the individuals were banned from re-entry into India – a move that can worsen relations between the two countries at a time when tensions are at a fever pitch.

Tensions have reemerged in the disputed territory of Kashmir, a Muslim-dominated region that has long been controlled by India, but whose population longs to be reunited with their brethren in Pakistan exacerbating longstanding tensions between the two nuclear powers. Continue reading »

India Moves Nearly One Hundred Tanks, Troops to Chinese Border:

With tensions rising between China and India, New Delhi has deployed nearly 100 tanks to its eastern border.

The mountainous region of Ladakh, in northern India, lies in a tense location between disputed Kashmir and Tibet. In an effort to boost its military presence in the area, the Indian military has sent Russian-made T-72 tanks to Ladakh’s Chinese border.

“The vast flat valleys along the mountain ranges allow for armored movement; besides, there has been an increase in the force levels across the border,” an unnamed military official told NDTV.

The tanks have undergone significant upgrades to be better outfitted for the region’s climate. Continue reading »

India’s ‘Gold Shirt Man’ Stoned-And-Sickled To Death By Mob:

Datta Phuge took the interwebs by storm three years ago when we introduced the $250,000 22-karat-gold-shirt-wearing 32-year-old Indian who proclaimed “I know I am not the best looking man but surely no woman could fail to be dazzled by this shirt?” showing the world that gold is much more than a barbarous relic. Sadly, as The BBC reports, “the gold man” was murdered overnight – found stoned-and-sickled to death near his home in Dighi, India.

Mutiny Among The “Magic People” – India Central Banker Admits “The Ammo Is Almost Gone”:

The self-described “magic people” who “give to the markets” are facing a mutiny this morning as Raghuram Rajan, the head of the Indian central bank, admits central banks and governments of rich countries are running out of ammunition for stimulating their economies… but they can never admit as much. Crushing the dreams of “extreme monetary policy”-setters, Rajan goes on to discuss the sanity of ‘helicopter money’ warning that people will not be ‘stimulated’ to spend but will question: “What kind of world are we in when the central bank prints money and throws it out of the window?”

Doctors link mass suicides, schizophrenic episodes among farmers to pesticide exposure:

Previous reports have linked mass suicides among farmers in India to mounting debt and crop failures as a result of GMO crops, particularly cotton, as it was forcibly converted to patented, transgenic varieties owned by large agrochemical companies. But now we’re learning that pesticide exposure may be to blame for a new wave of suicides among farmers in India.

Some 80 farmers in the village of Badi committed suicide between January and March of this year, according to the Times of India. Home to more than 2,500, Badi village (Madhya Pradesh) has had more than 350 suicides over the last two decades, affecting nearly every family in the village. Continue reading »

America just Blocked India’s Solar Program:

Solar power sees unprecedented boom in the United States – solar power grew by 6.2 gigawatts in 2014; and 1 million American homes have solar panels as of February 2016. However, the United States dragged India to the World Trade Organization claiming that India’s efforts to boost local production of solar cells and solar modules violated WTO rules.

Just recently, a WTO panel has ruled that the domestic content requirement (DCR) imposed under India’s National Solar Mission (NSM), is inconsistent with its archaic treaty obligations under the global trading regime. The requirement in question mandates a percentage of components to be sourced locally, to boost homegrown production of solar cells and solar modules. Continue reading »

10 Dead, Troops Deployed, Water Rationed As Indians Riot: “We Are Here To Die”:

The Jats are angry.

Violent protests by the rural caste have left 10 dead and 150 injured in Haryana, India where the government has sent 4,000 troops and 5,000 paramilitaries with shoot-on-sight orders.

The week-long riots reflect frustration with a lack of employment and university opportunities. “The Jats are demanding quotas for government jobs and university places for their caste, saying they are struggling to find opportunities despite India’s strong economic growth,” AFP writes. “India reserves places for lower castes in measures intended to bring victims of the country’s worst discrimination into the mainstream but the policy causes resentment among other communities, who say it freezes them out.” Continue reading »

Indian Food and Agriculture Under Attack

H/t reader squodgy:

“Seems Monsatan has been part of John Perkins’ Hitmen Group for decades…

Monsanto and the Mustard Seed By Vandana Shiva

(Article in full down below.)

And they’re still at it, destroying economies, cultures, health…who needs war when Monsatan’s about?

Indian Food and Agriculture Under Attack

In 2013, India’s former Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar accused US companies of derailing the nation’s oilseeds production programme. Similar claims had been made before. For instance, we could revisit the 1998 mustard oil tragedy. At the time, Rajasthan Oil Industries Association claimed that a “conspiracy” was being hatched to undermine the mustard oil trade and charged that the “invisible hands of the multinationals” were involved (see the article ‘Monsanto and the Mustard Seed’).

India was almost self-sufficient in edible oils by the mid-1990s. Its farmers met 97% of domestic need. However, its edible oil import bill has increased dramatically since then. By 2013, India was the world’s second biggest importer of edible oils. Food and trade policy analyst Devinder Sharma notes that between 2006-07 and 2011-12 alone edible oil imports rose by 380%.

Former Monsanto Director Reveals Massive Corruption & ‘Fake’ Data Used To Clear Approval Process:

Source: indiatoday.intoday.in

The debate on genetically modified (GM) brinjal variety continues to generate heat. Former managing director of Monsanto India, Tiruvadi Jagadisan, is the latest to join the critics of Bt brinjal, perhaps the first industry insider to do so.

Jagadisan, who worked with Monsanto for nearly two decades, including eight years as the managing director of India operations, spoke against the new variety during the public consultation held in Bangalore on Saturday. Continue reading »

The War on Cash: A Country by Country Guide:

Corbett Reporteers will be no stranger to the war on cash. I’ve made videos discussing it, conducted interviews about it, written articles examining it and dissected it on the radio.

The war has been waged through mainstream propaganda outlets, TV advertisements and even children’s games.

We’ve heard cash is dirtied by drug dealing, tarnished by terrorism, tainted by tax evasion (heaven forbid!) and just plain dirty. Not to mention sooooo outdated. Continue reading »

The 14-year-old is understood to have mistakenly boarded a carriage reserved for army officers on the Howrah-Amritsar Express in the eastern state of Jharkhand on Sunday. Once on board, a junior army officer gave the girl alcohol before another two officers allegedly raped her six times when she went to the toilet.

The Global Economic Reset Has Begun:

In my last article, I outlined the deliberately engineered trend toward the forced “harmonization” of national economies and monetary policies, as well as the ultimate end goal of globalists: a single world currency system controlled by the International Monetary Fund and, by extension, global governance, which internationalists sometimes refer to in their more honest public moments as the “new world order.”

The schematic for the new world order, according to the admissions of the internationalists, cannot possibly include the continued existence of U.S. geopolitical and economic dominance. The plan, in fact, requires the destabilization and reformation of America into a shell of its former glory. The most important element of this plan demands the removal of the U.S. dollar as the de facto world reserve currency, a change that would devastate our current financial structure.

GM Free India Slams Application for GMO Mustard Commercialization:

Following a news report confirming that an application for approval for commercialization of GM mustard has been moved with India’s apex regulatory body GEAC (Genetic Engineering Appraisal Committee in the Ministry of Environment, Forests & Climate Change), the Coalition for a GM Free India reminded the government about the serious consequences of this GMO’s release, and warned the government of serious resistance all over the country.

gmo-mustard

Farmer Unions and citizen groups had earlier started a Sarson Satyagraha urging the government not to jeopardise our food, farming and environment by introducing GM mustard.

This is the first time India would be considering commercial cultivation approval of any GM food crop after an indefinite moratorium was placed on Bt brinjal five years ago in February 2010. Continue reading »

Who’s Really Isolated? Iran Set To Join BRICS Bank, Strengthen Ties With Brazil:

On the heels of the nuclear deal and Tehran’s ground operation in Syria, Iran is stepping up efforts to prove that contrary to Western rhetoric, it is not in fact “isolated.” According to the country’s economy minister, Iran is now set to join the BRICS bank and step up its cooperation with Brazil. This is symptomatic of Washington’s waning ability to exert American influence on global affairs both political and economic.

Indians Urged To Give Up Their “Idle Gold” For The Good Of The Nation:

One month ago, when reviewing India’s ploy to monetize the thousands of tons of gold held by the broader population through the issuance of “gold-backed bonds” (which would need to offer a rate of interest greater than inflation to be attractive but they won’t), we asked if this is “the start of India’s gold confiscation.

As a reminder, as part of the plan, Indians would be allowed to “deposit their jewelry or bars with banks and earn interest, while the banks will be free to sell the gold to jewelers, thereby boosting supply. The deposits can be for a period of one year to 15 years with the interest on short-term commitments to be decided by the banks and those on long-term deposits by the government in consultation with the central bank.” Continue reading »

Whitefly destroys 2/3rd of Punjab’s cotton crop, 15 farmers commit suicide:

BATHINDA: “It was just like the Japanese air strike in the film, Pearl Harbour,” said Naresh Kumar Lehri, a seed and pesticide dealer at Singho village in Punjab’s Bathinda district. “They appeared out of nowhere and left a trail of destruction.”

Lehri was referring to the devastating attack by whitefly, a common pest, on the cotton crop in Punjab’s Malwa region this year. It has affected about two-thirds of standing cotton crop in the state, causing an estimated loss of Rs 4,200 crore.

Polio vaccines causing worldwide surge in childhood paralysis cases:

In April 2012, Aaron Dykes of Truthstream Media reported that statistically speaking, polio had been eradicated in India, but the statistics don’t tell the whole story.

In fact, he noted, there was a spike in “non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP) – the very types of crippling problems it was hoped would disappear with polio but which have instead flourished from a new cause.” How could that happen in a nation where polio had ostensibly been eradicated?

Quite simply, Dykes noted, the new spike was actually coming from the oral polio vaccine.

He further reported: Continue reading »

From the article:

“the plan will allow Indians to deposit their jewelry or bars with banks and earn interest, while the banks will be free to sell the gold to jewelers, thereby boosting supply.”

And again: Only physical(!) gold (and silver) stored outside the banking system is real, everything else is an illusion.


 

gold-confiscation-roosevelt-1933

Is This The Start Of India’s Gold Confiscation (ZeroHedge, Sep 10, 2015):

On April 5, 1933, FDR signed Executive order 6102 which made illegal “the Hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States” in the process criminalizing the possession of monetary gold by any individual or corporation.

This was de facto gold confiscation; De jure it wasn’t, because as compensation for the relinquished gold, Americans would receive 20.67 in freshly printed US dollars for every troy ounce. Anybody who objected faced a fine of $10,000 (just under $200,000 in inflation-adjusted dollars) and up to 10 years in prison.

Once the government was confident it has confiscated enough gold, it turned around and raised the official price of a gold ounce to $35 (about $600 in today’s dollars) devaluing the US Dollar by 40% overnight at a time when currencies were still backed by hard assets. Continue reading »
