Did you Know? India is the home to one of the hottest chills in the world.
India is home to one of the world's hottest chillies, the bhut jolokia or ghost pepper, which is 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce. The chilli, which is grown in the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Nagaland, and Manipur, was certified as the world's hottest in 2007 by Guinness World Records, but it fell out of that position in subsequent years.
On the first day of Navratri, it is customary in Northern India to sow barley seeds in earthen pots.
