  1. If you guys happen to be in Capital region, don't miss Shobana dance performance on 18/11.
  2. @Bollu Red soil generally supports more variety of crops than black wet soil. Polavaram right main canal is more useful to krishna/west godavari border constituencies than the constituencies along the canal in west godavari. All those are low rain fall, low ground water areas. I hope govt will focus more on those areas like Gopalapuram, polavaram, Koyyalagudem, Jangareddy gudem etc once polavaram completes. Similarly, I think left main canal will not be beneficial to the upland areas unless there are projects planned to lift water from the canal. I wish when water is available for these guys, they don't go for rice/sugar cane. They should with govt support grow more plantations.
  3. @Bollu West Godavari wet lands are famous for Banana plantation. May be one of the largest banana producing districts in India. Within AP, Kadapa is on the way to becoming no 1 banana producing district.
  4. @Bollu It is popular misconception that all of east and west godavari is green with paddy and sugar cane. Both east and west godavari has atleast half dry/upland area that is traditionally horticulture based. The traditional crops are mango, cashew and jackfruit. Two decades ago upland guys moved to Tobacco, Palm and cocoa plantation. Now they are switching back to horticulture. And even rice cultivating areas are slowly moving towards integrated farming based on natural farming methods. West Godavari is no longer largest rice producing district in Telugu states. Its Karimnagar now.
  5. @Bollu @whoami Yesterday, I bought Himalayan brand' millets from Indian Grocery store. 2lb packet costs $5. The cheapest option I found so far. I could find Foxtail, Barnyard and Little Millet varieties. There is another brand Mannat selling 1lb packets.
  6. @AndhraBullodu Ya, 24 Mantra vi expensive. Kaani anni paraboiled kaadu. They have paraboiled and non-paraboiled too.
  7. @LION_NTR 24 Mantra brand millets are available in Indian Stores. Im looking for more options
  8. I noticed India map shared by someone that shows mobile manufacturing state wise. Can you please share or post it here?

    Krishnapatnam Port ,Nellore

    Another thing is intention. CBN didn't start these ports or other infrastructure projects to mint money for himself. On the other hand, YSR did start Polavaram but his intention and the way he executed them was different.

    No doubt it is vision and work of CBN in the first place, that is bearing the fruits now. If he didn't do it, it would have taken few more decades. It is actually in resonance with his Vision 2020 to improve AP infrastructure drastically, he went aggressive about roads and ports. It adds to confusion that unlike kakinada and gangavaram ports, krishnapatnam guys didn't mention the history in their website. http://www.gangavaram.com/about-port.htm http://kakinadaseaports.in/?page_id=6 Another source that mentions brief story of KPCL https://www.bseindia.com/downloads/ipo/200933116251KPCL-Disclosure Document -Final.pdf In consonance with the programme of liberalization, State Government of Andhra Pradesh (GoAP) had invited bids from private sector parties for the development of four minor ports in the State, including Krishnapatnam Port, on Build, Operate, Share & Transfer (BOST) basis. GoAP accepted the offer for development of Krishnapatnam Port by the NATCO group-led consortium. GoAP & the NATCO Group of Companies have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in this regard on March 10, 1996. On 15th March 1996, NATCO Group of Companies incorporated Krishnapatnam Port Company Ltd. (KPCL) as a Special Purpose Company (SPC) for the development of the Port. Subsequently the Concession Agreement (CA) was executed between GoAP & KPCL on January 4, 1997. KPCL requested GoAP for certain amendments in agreement in order to make the project bankable and in line with other port concessions given to private developers in the state. GoAP has agreed to certain amendments to the agreement dtd. 04/01/1997. GoAP has approved the DPR on 25/06/1999. The DPR was revised by KPCL and submitted to GoAP on 07/04/2003. Subsequently, the revised CA was executed between KPCL & GoAP on September 17, 2004. Subsequently, the NAVAYUGA Group has joined the consortium as a majority partner. Another source: http://media1.autohaus.de/fm/3576/9909991394updateportsector.pdf Status of Privatized Ports (i) Kakinada Deep Water Port was privatized in March 1999 to M/S ISPL on OMST terms for 20 years. (ii) Krishnapatnam Port was privatized in Jan 1997 on BOOT terms to M/S Krishnapatnam Port Company Ltd.(NATCO) for 30 years. Revised agreement was signed on 17-9-2004. Navayuga Engineering Company has taken 74% equity stake in KPCL and NATCO 26%. (iii) Gangavaram Port was privatized in August, 2003 for development of Deep Water Port on BOOT terms initially for 30 years. The port has started handling cargo.
