The description of the plough in the Kṛṣiparāśara has been a puzzle for generations of Sanskrit philologists. What especially pained me was the disfunctional character of this description: among the eight essential parts the ploughshare was missing. The turning up of an until now unknown manuscript from The Library of Congress has brought a basic change: it contains the expected reading phālikā “ploughshare” for pāśikā an otherwise meaningful term “rope” that could have been adjusted to the context only by rather strained explanations.The present paper throws light on the problems concerned in the textual tradition and offers a solution.

The International Atomic Energy Agency's Mission to Kazakhstan studied the present environmental contamination and the exposure risk from nuclear tests performed at the Semipalatinsk Test Site. On this mission, EML scientists collected in-situ gamma-ray spectra, measured external gamma dose rates, and collected soil samples. With the exception of plowshare areas and near ground zero, all the areas visited had external dose rates within typical environmental levels. Measurements within a 15 km radius of ground zero showed elevated levels of137Cs,152Eu, and60Co. The dose rate within ≈1 km of ground zero ranged from 500 to 30000 nGy·h−1.
