Mangoes grown in India can again be sold in the European Union, after the 28-nation bloc lifted an import ban on Tuesday. Pest contamination saw the restriction imposed nine months ago.

Mangos zum Verkauf in Neu-Delhi

Brussels on Tuesday moved to allow the import of Indian mangoes to the EU, after its ban nine months ago due to contamination. India is one of the world's largest producers and exporters of mangoes.

The European Commission said New Delhi had made progress on ensuring both clean mangoes and improving its system for certifying plants for export.

"India has provided assurances that appropriate measures are now available to ensure that the exports of mango fruits are free from quarantine pest, like the fruit flies not known to occur in the [EU]," it said.

"The measures will allow the import of mango fruits before the start of the next import season in March."

Last year, EU inspectors found pests in at least 207 fruit and vegetable consignments from India. The ban on mangoes has been in place since last April, and also includes eggplants, taro and two types of gourd. The restrictions for the vegetables remain.

India had threatened to take the EU to the World Trade Organization over the mango ban.

As 2014 slowly curls itself up, giving way to 2015 to enter, let us recap some of the major news events which every Indian talked about. There are some stories which rejoiced us, and made us proud; then there are some events which made us realized how barbaric and inhuman we can be. These are some of the stories and events which affected us, Indians, in some way or the other.

Triumph of Narendra Modi

When Narendra Modi took oath as India’s 15th Prime Minister on May 26th, 2014, hesaid, “It is proof of the strength of our constitution that a man from a poor family is standing here today,”.

BJP won maximum seats after the General Elections ended, and Modi was unanimously elected as the new Indian PM. The fight which Modi and BJP carried through the first half of 2014, and the way they managed to clean sweep the seats in Parliament was definitely one of the most talked about news event in 2014.

Immediately after swearing in, he introduced Ministry of Entrepreneurship, improvedlabor laws, and introduced the concept of Digital India, which can transform the whole IT landscape in the country. As of now, he is the 15th most powerful person on the planet, and 2nd most popular leader on Facebook, just behind Barack Obama.

India Conquered Mars

As on September 24th, Wednesday, India created history when Mangalyaan, our very own spacecraft reached Mars.

We are the first country in the world to reach Mars within first attempt, and that too in a budget which was less than the budget of movie Gravity. The western world was in awe with ISRO’s achievement, and the whole country felt immensely proud of this achievement.

The journey which started in November last year took 10 months and $74 million to reach the red planet. Here are the reasons which makes it one of India’s top achievement for 2014.

Indian Stock Market Crosses Rs 100 Lakh Crore M-Cap

As on November 28th, Dalal Street in Mumbai burst into unprecedented jubilation and celebration as the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) crossed Rs 100 lakh crore or Rs 100 trillion market capital mark, thereby signally a new era for Indian stocks and equities market.

The total market capital of any stock exchange directly indicates the financial health status of the investors. Investment bankers issued statement that investor’s wealth in BSE and NSE has doubled in the last 5 years, a feat which very few stock exchanges in the world can claim.

Emergence of Ecommerce: Flipkart; Amazon; Snapdeal Steals The Show

In a country with less than 20% Internet penetration, which is lowest among the developed countries, Internet companies notched billions of dollars of private investment, thereby signaling a new era of Indian business trends. People are not shying away from buying online, and investors are not shying away from pouring billions of dollars into these companies.

Flipkart, the most successful Indian eCommerce company ever, attracted $1 billion+ investment in 2014 aloneAmazon India pledged to infuse $2 billion in next 2 years and Snapdeal pumped up more funds, along with some high profile associations which included Ratan Tata.

Indian eCommerce industry has never appeared better positioned to create history.

Kashmir Devastated By Floods

The heaven on Earth: Kashmir was devastated by flash floods in September, 2014, which affected both India and Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. More than 250 people in both the countries died, with hundreds still missing and thousands injured. Modi decided to spend the Diwali at Kashmir, overseeing rescue mission and assistance first hand.

Changing Indian IT Industry: Layoffs and Bloodbaths

IT Industry, which is traditionally regarded as fluctuation-free and a safe bet for someone who is looking for stability and ‘job security’ showed the first signals of transformation. Indian IT companies were unaffected during the dot com bubble of 2000s and the recession of 2008, but this time, things are a bit different. There was unprecedented layoffs reported from reputed companies such as IBMTCS andYahoo; and the trend looks dismal.

IT industry is changing, and the news of layoffs and pink slips were talked about everywhere.

Nobel Prize for Peace for Kailash Satyarthi

Kailash Satyarthi, founder of Bachpan Bachao Andolan an NGO which saves children from slavery and forced labor, won the Nobel Peace Prize, which he shared with Malala Yousafzai, the brave heart child from Pakistan who was shot in the head by Taliban but still survived to tell the tale.

Kailash has saved more than 88,000 children from 144 countries and it is due to his efforts that International Labour Organization has adopted Convention No. 182, which is right now the guiding principle for all Governments against child labor and child exploitation.

India is set to dominate in a new post-western world but "that did not necessarily mean that the United States of America and Europe have had it," the last governor of Hong Kong, Chris Patten, has said.

Patten, now chancellor of Oxford university, made the remarks in a speech he gave at a recent alumni weekend, held by the university.

Lord Patten of Barnes, famed for handing back the sovereignty of Hong Kong to the People's Republic of China in 1997 marking the end of British rule, told the audience of Oxford alumni that there had been a major shift in the global balance of economic power and that India and China would dominate this century, creating a new global hierarchy dominated by the East.

 

"Nowadays India invests more in the UK than vice versa," he said.  In fact, India is soon expected to become the third largest economy in the world.

China is currently the second largest economy in the world but, by 2020, in the new post-western world, China would overtake the USA to become the largest economy in the world, Patten said.

When considering whether leadership should come from Europe, the 67-year-old former student of Balliol College, who is also chairman of the BBC Trust, pointed out the currency union was falling apart.  "Why is it that Europe has failed to implement a series of measures to make Europe more competitive?" he asked.

 

Patten, a Catholic, who oversaw the oversaw the Pope's visit to Britain in September 2010, said that populations were falling fast in Europe, especially in Italy, Spain and Poland and the number of people in work supporting those in retirement was falling extremely fast.

Oxford academics from a range of departments delivered lectures showing how they were tackling a range of global challenges from population growth to increased energy consumption, climate change, living on social networking sites, the science behind earthquakes and emerging infectious diseases.

A highlight was a 'Mathematical Tour of Oxford' by Professor Marcus du Sautoy, who had presented the BBC documentary 'The Story of Maths', which had revealed that Indians had made many of the key mathematical breakthroughs in the world before the West had, even before Sir Isaac Newton was born, including inventing the zero, despite common misapprehensions that Math was a Western invention.

Between the 12th and the 19th century AD, Delhi was the capital for many rulers. Siri, Tughlakabad, Jahanapanah, Ferozabad, Dinpanah, Shergarh and Shahajahanabad are the historic ‘seven cities’ that took shape in Delhi. Shahajahanabad, built by Shah Jahan between 1639 and 1648 AD remained the capital of the Mughal Empire until 1857. The eighth city, or the present New Delhi, was built by the British Empire and is the one which is celebrating its 100 years today.
