DROUGHTS AND FAMINES
=One book said Famines happened about every 40 years in south India
=1520 famine, deccan
=1542, In the first year of the reign of Akbar, there was a great scarcity in
Hindustan. In some districts, especially Delhi it reached an alarming height.
On some occasions even greater extremes were reached with evidence of,
fathers even devouring their own children.^
Women were seen to roast their
children; men travelling in the way were kidnapped by bands of criminals to
be eaten by them. Peter Mundy relates "the men and women were driven to
that extremities for want of food that they sold their children
"many died unwept and unsung and the river Jhelum became a
common graveyard for all of them."
" It has been noticed that people will go to any lengths to 'grab a loaf' in the
time of famine. In the eighteenth century famine in Bengal for example, it is
known that people sold their children, some of them ate dead animals, and some
even consumed their children for a meal. "
=1556, gujarat and deccan, drought induced famine causing political chaos
=1556-1557, delhi area famine
=end of akbar's reign in 1595, 3 year famine in gujarat in deccan worse than the one in 1556
=1594 and 1575, famine and plague
The sources provide details of the famines and the plagues of 1574 and
1594. In the first instance, the inhabitants of Gujarat, both rich and poor
were forced to abandon their homes and fly from the country^ and in the
second, as Nuru-1 Hakk relates, men were driven to eat other men, and the
streets and roads were blocked with dead bodies, for the removal of which
no assistance could be rendered.
= Toward the end of Akbar’s rule, another terrible famine began in 1595 and lasted for 3 years, affecting the same areas. Conditions were worsened by a pestilence “in consequence of the dearth of grain
and the necessities of ravenous hunger,” said a chronicler in Akbar’s court. “Men ate their own kind. The streets and roads were blocked with corpses, but no assistance could be given for their removal” [Sastri and
Srinivasachari, 1982, p. 475].

=Cholera Epidemic, in Goa? in 1543, it is said that deaths from the disease were so numerous that the disposal of bodies was a formidable task
=Cholera Spring 1543-Same as above?
One of the first detailed accounts of a cholera epidemic comes from Gaspar Correa—Portuguese historian and author of Legendary India—who described an outbreak in the spring of 1543 of a disease in the Ganges Delta, which is located in the south Asia area of Bangladesh and India. The local people called the disease “moryxy,” and it reportedly killed victims within 8 hours of developing symptoms and had a fatality rate so high that locals struggled to bury all the dead.
=Numerous reports of cholera manifestations along the West coast of India by Portuguese, Dutch, French and British observers followed throughout the next few centuries.
=1548, severe sindh plague
