This year, however, Google is seemingly going all out to help celebrate the occasion by streaming Islamic prayers live from Mecca, something it first initiated last year.

"While the yield has been far less than that of last year, the price is either equal to that of last year or at times even less than that of last year," said K.S.Sivaramamurugan, a farmer

Even as the mango season is set for a close, the growers’ woes seem to have no end. We are facing a strange situation which defies ordinary laws of economics, they assert.
