A farmer shows turnips to a trader (not in the picture) at her vegetable field in Jammu January 13, 2011. India has the highest food inflation of any major Asian economy, but other emerging markets such as China and Brazil are also battling double-digit food price rises. India's food price index rose 16.91 percent, driven mainly by high vegetable prices, and the fuel price index climbed 11.53 percent in the year to Jan. 1, government data on Thursday showed.

A vendor selling garlic and turnips sits in the back of his truck as he waits for customers at an outdoor fruit and vegetable market located on the outskirts of Beijing December 17, 2010. China's inflation soared past forecasts to a 28-month high in November and showed signs of spreading beyond food prices, putting pressure on the government to tighten monetary policy. China is striding into an era where higher inflation will become a more permanent feature of its economic landscape, a shift that the government, long assumed to have zero tolerance for rising prices, is showing signs of accepting.

TAIWAN VP LIEN CHAN IN TAINAN.
Taiwan Vice President Lien Chan holds a turnip up to express his hope in winning the 2000 presidential campaign in southern Tainan City July31. Lien, tipped to be nominated by the ruling Nationalist Party to succeed President Lee Teng-hui, announced his desire to run in the millennium race. Lien faces strong challenge from presidential hopeful James Soong, former Taiwan governor who had defied the ruling party by running against the party-favoured Lien. Lien also faces challenge from former Taipei Mayor Chen Shui-bian of the main opposition Democratic Progressive Party, who had already announced his desire to run. Turnip in Taiwan dialect sounds like luck.
