Onion Prices: A Perennial Problem

In response to the exponential hike in onion prices in the mandis (wholesale fruit and vegetable bazaars) and retail markets, the Union Government reintroduced stock limits on October 23 on traders and wholesalers by invoking a provision of the newly-amended Essential Commodities Act of 1955.

Towards Inclusivity in Disaster Management: Reflections on Challenges Faced by LGBTQ+ Communities in Disaster Situation

Dr. Lavanya Shanbhogue talked about inclusivity in disaster management, focusing on the challenges faced by queer communities in disaster and conflict situations. Dr. Shanbhogue draws attention to the complicated relationship between queer communities and the state, noting that despite the fact that the state frequently plays a major role in disaster relief efforts, there has historically been discrimination and oppression of queer communities by the state.
