परिचय

वैज्ञानिक नाम ओरिजा सेटिभा एल. स्थानीय नाम धान, चामल

वैदिक साहित्य एवं पुरातात्विक उत्खननमा धान सबैभन्दा पुरानो उत्पादित बालीमध्ये एक भएको प्रमाण पाइएको छ। हजारौं वर्ष अघिदेखि नै भारत र चीनमा यसको खेती गरिन्थ्यो। धानअन्तर्गत विश्वको करिब ९० प्रतिशत क्षेत्र एसियामा पर्दछ अनि विश्वको लगभग ९० प्रतिशत धान एसियामै उत्पादन र खपत गरिन्छ। संसारभरि १५० मिलियनभन्दा धेरै इलाकामा धानको उब्जाउ गरिन्छ। भारत र चीन दुवैले एकसाथ विश्वको लगभग आधा धान इलाका ओगटेका छन् अनि ६० प्रतिशतभन्दा धेरै मानिसहरू चामल खान्छन्। चामल एसियाको एक प्रमुख खाद्य हो अनि युगौं पहिला एसियामा धानको खेती गरिएको हामीसँग ऐतिहासिक प्रमाणहरू छन् (पार्थसारथी, १९६० र घोष र अन्य, १९६०)। धानको पहिलो बीज कहाँ उत्पत्ति भयो भन्ने विषयमा कसैले पनि ठ्याक्कै भन्न सकेका छैनन्।

2014: The Year in Pretty Much Everything

So, I’m jumping the gun a bit on this, as we’ve still got a couple weeks of 2014 left, but there’s pretty good odds that I won’t see any movies or read any books or publish anything that I don’t already know about or anything else of note between now and then, and if I do, I’ll put up an addendum to this entry. 1,070 more words
