குறள் 1148:

நெய்யால் எரிநுதுப்பேம் என்றற்றால் கெளவையால்
காமம் நுதுப்பேம் எனல்.

கலைஞர் உரை:

ஊரார் பழிச்சொல்லுக்குப் பயந்து காதல் உணர்வு அடங்குவது என்பது, எரிகின்ற தீயை நெய்யை ஊற்றி அணைப்பதற்கு முயற்சி செய்வதைப் போன்றதாகும்.

மு.வ உரை:

அலர் கூறுவதால் காமத்தை அடக்குவோம் என்று முயலுதல், நெய்யால் நெருப்பை அவிப்போம் என்று முயல்வதைப் போன்றது.

சாலமன் பாப்பையா உரை:

இந்த ஊரார் தங்கள் அலரால் எங்கள் காதலை அழித்து விடுவோம் என்று எண்ணுவது, நெய்யை ஊற்றியே நெருப்பை அணைப்போம் என்பது போலாம்.



With butter-oil extinguish fire! ‘Twill prove
Harder by scandal to extinguish love.


To say that one could extinguish passion by rumour is like extinguishing fire with ghee.

Registration Committee monitors Pesticides usage

The government has set up a Registration Committee (RC) under Insecticides Act, 1968 which registers pesticides after considering the data on different parameters like chemistry, bio-efficacy, toxicity, packaging and processing to ensure efficacy and safety to human beings and animals, the Rajya Sabha was informed today. 

In a written reply, Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Sudarshan Bhagat said, ”There are 272 technical pesticides registered under Insecticides Act, 1968 which has been enacted to regulate the import, manufacture, sale, transport, distribution and use of insecticides with a view to prevent risk to human beings or animals and for matters connected therewith.” If pesticides are used as per approved label claims, they do not cause any hazard to human beings, live-stock among others, he said. 
The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India fixes Maximum Residues Limits of specific crops. No pesticide is registered without fixation of “Maximum Residue Limit” for the crop on which it is intended to be used, Mr Bhagat informed. 
Also, the Central government has started a scheme “Monitoring of Pesticide Residues at National Level” under which samples of food commodities are collected and analysed for the presence of pesticide residues, Mr Bhagat said. Implementation of the Insecticides Act , 1968 is the responsibility of both, Central and State governments. 
The Centre is responsible for registration of insecticides whereas, the state governments are responsible for enforcement of the provisions relating to sale, transport, distribution and use of insecticides. The Central and state governments are jointly responsible for quality control, Mr Bhagat informed.
