Posted by Chandrakant in Uncategorized.

Why  is  this  place  in  news  in  India  for  all  the  wrong  reasons ?

This  is  Thuringia  in  Germany . The  bacterium  Bacillus  thuringiensis  is  named  after  the  province . The  Bt  in  the  Bt  Brinjal  controversy  stands  for  Bacillus  thuringiensis .

Superb  crack  by  Rajith  Ravi  and  Freestyler .

7. Freestyler - February 16, 2010

The province = Thuringia> Bacillus thuringiensis = Bt (as in Bt Brinjal)

My guess: It is the Dugong Creek, in Andaman Islands, where in Dec. 2008, around 8 Onge tribesmen died after consuming what is considered to be a bottle of methanol that had washed ashore. Since their total numbers are pegged at around 100, this was a literal decimation of their polpulation.

9. Nishanth Raman - February 16, 2010

The site of the Pune blasts, German Bakery has it’s origins in Thuringia?

10. Kashyap - February 16, 2010
