Study is based on the primary as well as secondary data. Agricultural land use pattern and production is influenced by physical, socio-economic, technological and organizational factors. An effort has been made here to study the changing land use pattern, cropping pattern, pattern of crop diversification, crop combination and ranking of the crops in Pulwama district for the year 2010 - 2011, which is considered to be a normal year from agricultural point of view. The crop data has been computed with the help of Jasbir Singh's method of crop diversification and weaver's method of crop combination.

Durham University, 9-11 April 2013

'[T]he poets of the nineties were entirely missed out of my personal history […] I never read any of these people until it was much too late for me to get anything out of them'.

T.S. Eliot, letter to Ezra Pound, 1924

'[I]t was towards the end of my school days or in my first year or two at Harvard University [that] I was reading the poets of the 'nineties, who were the only poets […] who at that period of history seemed to have anything to offer me as a beginner'.

T.S. Eliot, Saltire Review, iv, 1957

In his introduction to the book Christmas at the Movies (2002), Jeffrey Richards writes:

During the nineteenth century the family reading of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol was one of the rituals of Christmas. In the latter part of the twentieth century, the ritual showing of Frank Capra's film It's a Wonderful Life took its place. This is symptomatic of the process by which cinema became an integral part of the celebration of Christmas in the twentieth century (Richards, 'General Editor's Introduction').
