By the numbers: The state of the worlds soil in 2022

For this years world soil day, theUnited Nations Food and Agriculture Organization(FAO) reminded us that95% of the food we eatcomes directly or indirectly from our soils. In other words, ultra-processed meat alternatives made with pea protein need the soils nutrients as much as a head of lettuce does. The trouble is, global plates are losing those nutrients as soil degrades at a rapid rate. In the last 70 years, nutrients in food have decreased. The UN estimates that 2 billion people nearly a quarter of the population suffers from a lack of micronutrients. About one-third of the worlds soils are already degraded. This loss makes land less productive and, as illustrated above, puts both the food system and human health at risk. Farming practices that range from tilling to deforestation to overgrazing speed up this soil degradation, which also lessens the soils ability to store carbon something well need to do more of in future to help fight climate change. READ MORE: Why tillage erosion is bigger than wind and water erosion Soil degradation impacts regions all over the world. Heres a quick (non-exhaustive) look at the state of our global soil. 68%: Soil erosion in Latin America Erosion affects more than 68% of soil in South America thanks to the usual suspects: deforestation and over grazing.According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, desertification threatens27% to 43% of territory in Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, and Peru. More than half the land in Argentina, Mexico, and Paraguay are unfit for cultivation due to desertification. Roughly125 million peopleliving in semi-arid land and sub-humid regions are at risk. The UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) coordinator for Latin America and the Caribbean, Jos Miguel Torrico,statedthat the annual costs of land degradation are estimated for Latin America and the Caribbean at $60 billion per year. LISTEN: Soil erosion 6.8 inches: Iowas black gold lost According to the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Iowa has lost an average of 6.8 inches of its topsoil since 1850. Estimates suggest that at this rate, there are only about 60 harvests left before the gold is completely gone. Meanwhile, soil erosion costs the US roughly$37.6 billionin productivity losses each year. Erosion can lead to loss of crops, livelihoods, and biodiversity. 25%: desertified European land risk Roughly one quarter of the European continent is at risk of desertification. Most of this is concentrated in southern Europe. The Mediterranean is by far the most susceptible part of European land to soil degradation and desertification. It has the highest overall erosion rates and the lowest levels of soil organic matter. Recent research notesthat increasing population, rapid land-use changes, associated socio-economic activities, and climate change are imposing high pressures on the regions shallow soils. The region produces much of the worlds olive oils, nuts, tomatoes, and wines. But researchers say the Mediterranean is reaching critical limits for their ability to provide ecosystem services. Such services include farming and carbon capture. 7.2 million tons: Indian crop loss Soil degradation is one of Indias most urgent environmental concerns. Nearly two-thirds of the countrys land is under degradation, meaning a decline in land productivity. The annual loss of crops due to soil erosion in India isestimated to be7.2 million tons or 4% to 6.3% of annual agricultural production. Indiawill soon overtake Chinaas the most populous nation on earth. This could intensify the soil problem even more. 65%: African land degradation Up to 65%of productive land is degraded in Africa, and desertification impacts 45% of the continents land area. Deforestation is an enormous part of this problem, and its a tricky one, too. For example,in Kenyas Olpusimoru Forest Reserve, a complex web of poverty, ethnic clashes, and an expanding population, to name just a few factors, drive rampant deforestation that degrades soils. Net loss of forests in Africa continues increasing, with the latest estimates putting losses at 4 million hectares of forest annually. Editors Note: The author of this article is Jennifer Marston.

We are not allowed to speak in Parliament: Rahul Gandhi

Politics Rahul Gandhi supported Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot's allegation that the media was not giving enough coverage to the Yatra and claimed it was being done at the behest of the union government. PTI Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday, December 7, accused the BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) of suppressing institutions meant to defend democracy in the country and alleged that Opposition members were not allowed to raise issues in Parliament. Addressing a gathering during the Bharat Jodo Yatra, Rahul Gandhi supported Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot's allegation that the media was not giving enough coverage to the Yatra and claimed it was being done at the behest of the union government.India is a democratic country and separate institutions work to defend and protect democracy. These institutions include Assemblies, Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha, judiciary, media...but the BJP and the RSS have suppressed all these, Gandhi said at a corner meeting along the NH52 at Cable Nagar in Rajasthan on the 91st day of his foot march. Gandhi said they decided to take out the Yatra as opposition members were not allowed to speak in Parliament and alleged their mikes were turned off whenever they tried to raise any issue. They have installed their men in all these institutions. If we want to deliver a speech in Parliament whether it is on demonetisation, GST, farmers' bill, or even on China that has occupied our land, our mike is turned off, we are not allowed to speak, we keep shouting in parliament house, the video camera does not turn to our side, Gandhi alleged. The Congress leader is likely to skip the winter session of Parliament, which commenced on Wednesday, due to the Yatra. Gandhi also took a dig at Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, who is the BJP MP from Kota. The Speaker is from Rajasthan and Lok Sabha TV likes his face too much. They keep showing his face for 24 hours, whereas whatever we say is heard by none, the Congress leader said. Eventually, he said, they thought they had only one way left, which was to march on roads and interact with people. Pointing at reporters present there, Gandhi said they try to do their duty but due to the owners (of their media house)... they cannot perform their duty properly. It is not their fault,their remote control is not in their hands but in the hands of owners and in the hands of the government that rules from Delhi, Gandhi said, echoing Gehlot's criticism of media. Gandhi said unemployment and price rise are the biggest issues before the country and alleged that demonetisation followed by GST imposition had broken the backbone of small businessmen. Prices of petrol and diesel always go up in India whether prices of the same are witnessing both rise and fall in the international market, he claimed. Where is this money going, in whose pocket...it is going to 4-5 industrialists in the country, who get all airports, railways and will get other government companies one by one, Gandhi alleged.Their loans are waived in seconds but they (BJP government) cannot exempt even a loan of Rs. 50,000 of a farmer, Gandhi said. He asserted that his party delivers on its promises and has waived loans of 22 lakh farmers in Rajasthan. He also accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of not fulfilling his promise to give national project status to Eastern Rajasthan Canal Project (ERCP). We do what we say. Loans of 22 lakh farmers have been waived, Gandhi said. The Congress government in Rajasthan had pledged to waive farmers' loans in the last assembly elections. The BJP has accused the Congress of failing to fulfil its poll promise. Gandhi said that eight lakh farmers get electricity free of cost in the state. Talking about ERCP, he said, The prime minister had twice in his speech promised to 13 districts of Rajasthan to give national project status to ERCP. He had said he will fulfil it soon. He cancelled it, Gandhi said.Now when the Rajasthan government wants to build the project with its funds, the Centre is stopping the project. The state government has kept aside Rs 9,500 crore for the project, the former Congress president said. ERCP is an ambitious project of Rajasthan which was envisaged during the previous BJP government. It is aimed at providing drinking and irrigation water to 13 districts of the state. The Yatra, which has so far covered over 2,400 kilometers since it started on September 7 from Tamil Nadu's Kanyakumari, resumed at 6 am here on its 91st day on Wednesday. Gandhi marched to Kota from Darra Station Ganesh Mandir. After walking for about 10 km in the district, he stopped at the house of party worker and former deputy pradhan Ashok Meena in Gopalpura on NH-52. Rahul Gandhi ji enjoyed 'gur ki chai'. He had especially requested for it. He got homemade 'gur ki chai'. Rahulji and Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot had the tea and both appreciated the taste, Meena said. The former village pradhan said he informed Gandhi about the water problem faced by farmers in the area and requested for a canal to be built. Rahul Ji asked CM Gehlot to solve the issue, he said. Gehlot, PCC chief Govind Singh Dotasra, and former deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot also addressed the corner meeting. The Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra is scheduled for a night stay at Madan Mohan Malviya farmhouse scheme ground in Jagpura on Wednesday night and will resume on the 92nd day on Thursday at 6 am. They will cover a 24-kilometre stretch to Gudli railway station in Bundi.

More woeful Incident than shraddha, alive woman's breasts chopped and then...

Bhagalpur: Aftab, the perpetrator of the Shraddha Walker murder case, had cut 35 pieces of his love after her murder, but in the story that has come out of Bhagalpur and is shocking the whole country, an inferior man cut a living woman into pieces. That too in the middle of the street. The only fault of the woman was that she used to oppose some of the miscreantsmolestingand abusingher. At the same time, the country has not been able to recover from the incident of rape with Shraddha in Delhi and a similar incident happened again in Bhagalpur, Bihar. Aftab from Delhi had cut Shraddha into 35 pieces after her murder. But Shakeel Miyan of Bhagalpur and his associates cut Jeetji Neelam's body into so many pieces that it was difficult to even look at her. She succumbed to her injuries in front of a mob within minutes of her agony, on the evening of December 3, when Neelam was returning home from Peerpanti market in Bhagalpur. But on the way, Shakeel and his associates stopped Neelam and before she could understand anything, attacked her with all the sharp-edged weapons and cut her into several pieces. The attackers first attacked heron the back and then on the head. After this attack, when she fell to the ground, the attackers cut off both her hands, then her legs, and then both breasts. A sharp object was also inserted into herface. This horrible scene was seen by twenty people and people recorded it. But no one tried to save her. The woman was picked up and taken to the hospital, but due to being cut alive into several pieces, her condition was very bad and she had lost a lot of blood, so the doctor also couldn't save her. After receiving the news, the police also reached the spot and started investigating the case. But the woman's family denied any direct enmity with Shakeel. However, he did say that Shakeel used to sit near his shop and often stare at Neelam, which was opposed by the family members. After that, Shakeel stopped coming to his shop, but now suddenly he attacked her. At present, the police have arrested the criminal Shakeel and his associates. The weapons used in the murder have also been recovered. But the way this incident was carried out in a brutal and brutal manner, everyone is shocked.

'All Muslims should vote for Congress..,' appeals Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid

Ahmedabad: Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid in Ahmedabad, Shabbir Ahmed Siddiqui, has urged Muslims to remain united ahead of the upcoming Assembly elections. The Shahi Imam recalled 2012 when a BJP candidate won from a Muslim-dominated seat. Apart from this, the Shahi Imam has informed that efforts are also being made to make Muslims vote unitedly through social media. Shabir Ahmed has given this statement on Saturday (December 3). Speaking to the media, Imam Shabbir has told that due to the division of Votes of Muslims, the Jamalpura seat of Ahmedabad was also captured by the BJP in the year 2012. According to Imam, the reason for this was the division of Muslim votes among themselves. This time, Shabbir has said that Muslims should make the one who represents them victorious. Shabbir himself will also cast his vote in the second phase of elections on December 5, 2022, in Ahmedabad. In 2012, Congress had given a ticket to a Muslim candidate from Jamalpura's seat. A local leader Sabir Kabaliwala also contested against him. Kabaliwala got around 30,000 votes. In this tussle, the BJP candidate won by 6000 votes. Once again Kabaliwala is contesting from the same Jamalpura. This time he is a candidate from Owaisi's party AIMIM. Questioning the entry of Owaisi's party AIMIM in the Gujarat elections, Imam Shabbir has asked what he is going to do in the assembly. According to the Shahi Imam, Muslims have enmity with the BJP, so at such a time they should not have enmity with the Congress. Imam has openly appealed to the Muslims to unite and vote in favor of the Congress.

Ahmedabad: Voting for the first phase of the Gujarat Assembly elections has been completed.

It is being claimed that the locals also raised slogans in favor of the Congress. This is not the first time Asaduddin Owaisi has faced public opposition in Gujarat. Earlier also, Owaisi was heavily opposed in many Muslim-dominated areas of Gujarat. About two weeks ago, Muslim youths in Surat East had shown black flags at Owaisi's public meeting.

The Constitution and the idea of India - By Aditya Sondhi

The following quotes are excerpts from a speech delivered at the 18th Gen KS Thimayya Memorial Lecture delivered by senior advocate Aditya Sondhi on November 5, 2022 in Bengaluru. Watch the full speech at the YouTube link provided below. The Constitution begins with the words India that is Bharat and one has to give due weightage to the use of this word. It is one question as to what the idea of Bharat is that takes us into a different civilisational expedition. But the fact is that there existed an amorphous concept of Bharat that the Constitution recognises, defines and builds upon. Kumud Pawde, who was one of the first Dalit teachers in Sanskrit, at her Sanskrit Pandita Award ceremony is quoted in Veena Venugopals book Independence Day: A Peoples History as saying: I am a woman .... a Dalit and married to a Shudra. In all three cases, I should not learn or teach Sanskrit according to the shastras. But the constitution of my India allows me to do this. That is the idea of India. I learned of a pending PIL to strike out the words secularism and socialism from its text on the grounds that they were never contained in the original preamble. Does striking them out mean we are not socialist and secular? Secularism is in fact the preamble of not just our Constitution but of our very DNA the days we spent in school, oblivious of religious differences (or for that matter, class differences and caste differences at times, too oblivious) defined what to be Cottonian, Bangalorean and Indian. The spirit of fraternity, equality, the idea of merit, the idea of respect for religion, the emphasis on being and doing good and doing the right thing, enjoying the liberty to think and express oneself were indeed part of the personality of growing up here in the 1980s. A fine indicator of our diversity is language. The reorganisation of states in 1956 came about on a linguistic basis, eroding the hitherto bifurcation between princely states and governors provinces, which paid no heed to the linguistic identity of the people. Potti Sriramulu also known as Amarjeevi or immortal for his fast unto death that led to the creation of Andhra Pradesh, carved out from hitherto Madras Presidency, showed that language and culture trumps politics. The imposition of Hindi has been strongly resisted, especially in the Southern states. EV Ramaswamy better known as Periyar was one such trenchant opponent of language imposition. Asked in 1930 whether India was a single country, he responded in the negative, saying India was a just collection of various castes, religions and languages. It is the Constitution twenty years later that unified us into one. Watch: KST18 | Dr. Aditya Sondhi | The Constitution and the Idea of India The Constitution is, in many ways, Sufi I do not say this in any religious sense, but in the sense that it permits for all religion and is itself embedded in being righteous, spiritual and good (without being aligned with religion itself). For whom conscience trumps religion. Rumi in The Masnavi (in translation by Jawid Mojaddedi) says that while the warriors stand to the Kings left and the treasurer and scribes to the right, the Sufis are seated straight in front as they serve as mirrors to the soul. Our constitution is a mirror to our soul, and we may choose to behold in it all thats good and right. What we perhaps refer to as constitutional morality that ought to guide the mothership forward. In some ways it is easier to define what is not the idea of India. Just as you know using sandpaper on the ball is not cricket, fake encounters by policemen in the name of justice is not the idea of India. The remission of Bilkis Banos rape accused and is not the idea of India. Lynching mentally challenged individuals by branding them child lifters is not the India. Believing in rank superstition, human sacrifice and discrimination, and killing of rationalists is not the idea of India. The beating and killing of a Dalit boy for trying to drink water from a common pot is not the idea of India. Running JCBs through slums in the name of law and order and urban planning is not the idea of India. Incessant farmers suicides - which P Sainath writes so movingly about while we boast of being an economic superpower, is not the idea of India. Foisting charges of sedition on an officer who prevents a political leader from entering the ATC of an airport for trying to force a flight after hours is not the idea of India. Having our fellow citizens indulge in manual scavenging a glorified metaphor for removing excreta from our drains in the name of employment is not the idea of India. The idea of India is not the idea of a Government or the idea of a high powered elite. What the commonest of our citizens aspires for as a haven of compassion and opportunity where dignity pervades that is the idea of India. The rights to privacy, dignity, autonomy, sexuality, bodily integrity, ecology and many others are rights read into the right to life. It surprises me sometimes to see folks read the constitution as though it were some municipal corporation statute, without its elasticity or imagination. We have come a long way from the dark jurisprudence of ADM Jabalpur where the Supreme Court upheld the absolute suspension of fundamental rights on the shallow ground of Emergency powers. The constitutional Courts need never feel helpless as the letter and spirit of the constitution gives them the power of adaption, its suppleness, its play to further civil rights and the idea of justice. Driven, I dare say, by the notion of constitutional morality. The Indian constitution is the most lengthy and the most amended constitution in the world. The precious right to education was introduced by way of the insertion of article 21A leading to the RTE Act, which has in some ways been a game changer. Similarly the introduction of article 371J which provides for reservation to people from Hyderabad-Karnataka region I think is a unique constitutional construct. It recognises the backwardness of certain districts and geographies in the country and provides for their advancement through affirmative action. Similar provisions are available in respect of the north-east as well. The 42nd amendment providing for grassroots representation through the development of the Panchayat system is really the introduction of a Gandhian form of governance that is decentralised, local and bottom-up in contrast to how Nehru and Ambedkar saw it as more centralised in functioning. All of this with the backdrop of a federal structure where the states and the Union are to enjoy their respective autonomy as per the lists in Schedule VII. These paradigms co-exist and highlight the accommodation within the Constitution. It may come as a revelation to some of you that the Indian Constitution does not establish intelligence agencies in India and the all-powerful IB, RAW and others function in what can only be called a constitutional vacuum. We fought this this case to not just regulate these agencies as should be the case in any country that follows rule of law and as is the case in many other countries where intelligence agencies operate within the framework of legislation, for instance the MI6 or CIA - but also to try and provide legal/constitutional legitimacy to these intelligence agencies. There obviously remain gaps in the Constitution and remind us that change is constant and is often welcome. With the emerging axis of a cultural revanchism, a dominant executive and a partial media, the Supreme Court and high courts are going to find themselves more and more in the eye of a storm. How the Courts tackle these vexed issues of sociocultural and political ramifications within the letter and spirit of the Constitution is going to be critical to the development (or erosion) of the idea of India. That said, civil society movements, general awareness of the Constitution, a greater exposure to the Constitution in schools and colleges regardless of curriculum and, I believe, a greater engagement with Constitution in our everyday workplaces and social conversations will go a long way in refining our understanding of the Constitution so that in this upcoming cultural collision, if you will, there is a collective sense of the constitutional idea of India. Aditya Sondhi is a designated senior advocate practising before the Supreme Court of India and the High Court of Karnataka. He has served as Additional Advocate General for Karnataka and has taught and lectured widely. He is also a research scholar, playwright, author, podcaster, and philanthropist.
