After attacking several states, locust swarms likely to target Karnataka


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, May 27: The swarms of locusts which have destroyed crops in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, are heading for Maharashtra. There is strong possibility of the locusts then entering Karnataka and inflicting huge losses on the farmers here.

The locusts numbering lacs have now attacked Vidarbha region of Maharashtra. Experts in agriculture have warned about the danger of the swarms attacking Karnataka districts located nearer to Maharashtra. The locusts’ entry into Karnataka can be stalled only if the Maharashtra government handles the locusts menace effectively.

Locusts numbering several lacs have already destroyed standing crops in many villages. They entered Maharashtra via Amaravathi in Andhra Pradesh. Even though chemicals were sprayed in these areas to control them, they were not affective.

Punjab and Haryana which are nearer to Pakistan border also run the risk of coming under locust attack.

    This nothing but an 'Torment' from the God to the ruling party that caused millions of migrant laborers dearly,
    First it is pandemic of 'COVID-19' that shut maximum of SME and MSME into billions of losses. Now the swarms of locust going to affect the agriculture sector.
    If government don't act now the great 'femine' is much awaited.

    Exodus Chapter 10 verses 12 to 15 states, “(12) And the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over Egypt so that locusts swarm over the land and devour everything growing in the fields, everything left by the hail. (13) So Moses stretched out his staff over Egypt, and the Lord made an east wind blow across the land all that day and all that night. By morning the wind had brought the locusts; (14) they invaded all Egypt and settled down in every area of the country in great numbers. Never before had there been such a plague of locusts, nor will there ever be again. (15) They covered all the ground until it was black. They devoured all that was left after the hail—everything growing in the fields and the fruit on the trees. Nothing green remained on tree or plant in all the land of Egypt.”

    Alwyn...Should we conclude if done anything wrong on this earth God will punish in certain time. What punishment given to Adam's son Cain who killed his own brother Abel. Question arises..for what Heaven and Hell created if all justice made on this earth only. It means during judgement day there is no meaning left.

    God is merciful one will not get hell easily unless one chooses it. So much purification happens on earth as no impure can go to heaven and then there is a purgatory for those who still need some purification, go through it, before entering heaven.

    Pity you guys link this to religion and selling it here. This is majorily due to the change in climatic pattern across the African and Arabian regions which created favorable conditions for locusts to mass reproduce and rising temperatures due to global warming made the Indian Ocean warm resulting these locusts to migrate rapidly. The govts failed to take precautionary steps and failed the farmers like always. Strict vigilance and spraying of pesticides is a fundamental step to control the locusts. If you care buy a farmer organophosphate and equipments to spray across his field rather sitting at your home couhging up nonsense in SM. Amen

    If one says I love them (locusts) as God is love one is surrendering them to God they will go somewhere else as per God's plan or grace or one need to or collectively need to pray God to drive them away.

    Otherwise how many kgs of organophosphate and how many number spray equipments needed? How many Manhours needed! Probably countless right if they go from state to state?

    Thank you God for sending them away from India!

    If one sees this in the biblical perspective or in spiritual eyes,

    In olden Egypt, they used to worship 10 things, some of those are,
    Water - God turned water into blood red,
    Cattle and Live stock - All died beacuse of God sent pestilences
    Crops - Locusts ate all their crops,
    Sun - there was 3 days of Darkness,
    Finally they were made to worship their King - Everyone's firstborn son died including King's firstborn son.

    Then the Pharaoh the Egyptian King had to release Israelites under the guidance of Moses from their slavery to promised land who were under Egyptian bondage because of their previous disobedience to their God.

    Seems God is angry, wants everyone to depend on him and not to depend on self, things of the world, otherwise there will be plagues and pestilence also scarcity of water, food and light is coming ? That's what God is trying to say with this pestilence and locust plague?

    Muslims do not worship the Kaaba, but it is Islam's most sacred site because it represents the metaphorical house of God and the oneness of God in Islam. Observant Muslims around the world face toward the Kaaba during their five daily prayers.

    You are correct but It is Important to how Creator created things, by whom as Bible clearly says in

    John 1: 1-5 and in John1:14

    1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome.

    The Word Became Flesh

    14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

    Both Good and bad die but depends upon their karma means depends upon good works, charity and repentance of their bad action one would get heaven or hell.

    If God has taken them definitely they would be enjoying heaven, much better than earth, as following scripture suggests

    1 Corinthians 2:9
    However, as it is written: "What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived" -- the things God has prepared for those who love him

    John 11:25
    Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me, even if he dies, will live.

    But what you will have to know how to survive in this critical time and whom God will protect irrespective of religion

    Psalm 41:1–3
    1 Blessed is he who considers the poor;
    The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
    2 The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive,
    And he will be blessed on the earth;
    You will not be delivered to the will of enemies.
    3 The Lord will strengthen him on his bed of illness;

    Mr.Rajesh....As we believe we are all children of God...in what context one can be punished. We are all creator's creation. Some are born poor... Some are born semi-poor, some are born rich. Some are born physically disabled.
    When baby born it grow according to the environment. When all doors closed..a person who stole things to feed his family members rather than die from hunger...how he will be wrong. God never made everybody alike...given all things equal. For survival people adopt one or other way which feels easy and of there capability. Heard before baby born destiny written. How far is it correct.

All are having Jawar Roti and Pyaaj at home to survive..for that reason migrant workers move to there respective homes. In Middle East especially in Saudi Arabia once rich now increased VAT from 5% to 15%. Due to stop of transportation scarcity of items within country. Time as come to depend much on Kajoor with turkish gawa. Herein water is costlier than petrol. How terrorist countries will be funded in coming years when sponsor itself is become kangal.

    Well Pankaj
    There are instances being recorded in the Bible God sending plagues to set his people free from slavery under Egyptian ruler Pharaoh.
    Jewish people around the world celebrate by retelling the biblical story of the Exodus from Egypt — including the 10 plagues that God inflicted on the Ancient Egyptians.

    As the Passover story tells it, after Pharaoh refuses Moses’ entreaties to let the enslaved Israelites go free, God sends a series of ten plagues to pressure the Egyptian ruler. Each time, Pharaoh promises to free the Israelites, but reverses his decision when the plague is lifted — until the last one. The plagues are: water turning to blood, frogs, lice, flies, livestock pestilence, boils, hail, locusts, darkness and the killing of firstborn children.

    Take the example of the doctors, if there is gangrene in the leg to save the life of that person they will amputate the leg, does it mean the doctors are cruel? No definitely not , they are in fact merciful and kind and therefore they amputate the gangrened leg and save the person from greater pain and misery.
    Take the example of a mother making the child to drink bitter medicine, shall we say she is being cruel, definitely not, by doing this so called cruel act she is helping the child to enjoy greater and better health. Similarly it is with God for a greater good he at times chooses certain painful means that's all.
