  • Drink Delicious Beer Cocktails If You Don't Want to Get Hammered Tonight 

    Beer cocktails are a perfect middle-ground between sobriety and sloshiness. The core ingredients are beer, lime juice, salt, and something spicy, but my favorite iteration includes a lot of clamato juice. When I went to Equator this summer I kept ordering micheladas and feeling very confused about the across-the-board lack of any hint of tomato juice or clamato. This is a take on the drink that is very popular in Quito and other places too.

  • Farmer suicides: Is moving from farms to factories the answer?

    The stir against land acquisition took a tragic and macabre turn when a farmer hanged himself during an Aam Admi Party (AAP) rally in the heart of the national capital. Arguably, the answer to farmers' suicides lies in boosting the agriculture sector through more irrigation facilities, provision of cheap credit and crop insurance, better marketing facilities after eliminating middle men and encouraging big retailers to step in, and making the availability of seeds and fertilizer much easier. Equally important are initiatives like weaning away the subsistence farmers from their lands which have ceased to be productive either through overuse or sub-divisions among successive generations of cultivators. It is only through industrialization that the pressure on such lands can be eased as the peasants move from farms to factories.
