The Sun entered Zero Degree Sidereal Libra yesterday at 0602 PM, initiating Thula Vishu, as well as Thula Varsha. Vishu or Equinox occus twice on Apr 14 ( Solar ingress into Aries ) and on Oct 17 ( Solar ingress into Libra ).Today is Thula 1, Aslesha upto 25 Nadis and 48 Vinadis and the Tenth Lunation, Dasami.
The indications to Thula Varsha had already begun and it rained heavily day before yesterday. Thula Varsha is the North East Monsoon. As the point in the
We expect more rains in Thula. Vrischika end ( Dec 15 ) will see the end of the Monsoon Season in Kerala. On Dhanu 10th ( Dec 25 ) , farmers will start irrigating their fields, which they were not doing from May 29 onwards.
The North East Monsoon, Thula Varsha, comes as rains in the afternoon normally, with fireworks ( lightning and thunder ). People are warned not to stay outdoors, not to stand behind solitary trees and not to touch window bars. Thunder and lightning had wreaked havoc in some places in Kerala yesterday !
How accurate the Kerala Calendar is was proved true as heavy rains and thunder hammered Guruvayur at 0420 PM yesterday. I disconnected the modem and pulled out of office at 0430 PM. Day before yesterday also I pulled out at 0645 PM, when thunder and rains took over. Thunder can damage hard disks.
The Indian mathematicians have not erred and as scheduled Thula Varsha begam in earnest and it is raining cats and dogs in Guruvayur now.
Fierce rains slashed Guruvayur at 0420 PM onwards and it is raining torrentially.

A - Yes. He is the largest planet in the solar system. 1300 earths can be fit into Jupiter.He played a vital role in the horoscopes of British Sovereigns. He was angular, either rising ( in First ) or culminating ( in Tenth ).

Q - What is Farm Tourism?
In Kerala, which is an agri state, Farm Tourism is promoted as a new tourism product. Without much investment, F T can be marketed, as Kerala has 30 lakh hectares of gross cropped area. More than 33% contain plantations of Tea, Coffee, Rubber, Cardamom et al and more than 33% contain coconut plantation. The State has 350 K lakh hectares under paddy cultivation.
5% of the total land has been allocated for F T..There are schemes which are under way to prepare the plantations/ Farms to receive tourists by presenting a positive image of the Farm and Agri as a whole. The Agri Sector is therefore revitalised and will increase tourist arrivals in the State.
Farm Tourism is an integral part of Eco Tourism but there is a slight difference. While artificially created landscapes are part of Eco Tourism - gardens, pond etc - the goal of Farm Tourism is to show the curious tourist about Nature in her pristine purity. .
