An Indian farmer ploughs his field as a smoky fire burns to ward off mosquitos near Ahwa town, some 375 kms from Ahmedabad, on August 5, 2012. The farmers of this region make use of traditional firewood to raise smoke to protect themselves and their bullocks from mosquitoes and insects. This year's monsoon has been more than 20 percent below its average, sparking fears of drought among farmers who remember vividly the failure of 2009, when India suffered its worst drought in nearly four decades.
