Eggplant flower falling
I live in Chennai (India - temp day high -35 degree C, night low -27 degree C). I have planted eggplants in my terrace in growing bags. Soil composition soil 50%, coco peat 50%. Vermicompost and cow dung. I use a seaweed extract as foliar spray once in 10 days. Plants are healthy but the buds bloom dry and fall off. To date have not gotten a single fruit. Please help

It sounds like you are treating the plants well. This could be a pollination problem:
Flowers can also be killed by high heat, especially if the variety you have is one adapted to cooler climates. Also check this article:
Excessive nitrogen (such as from cow dung) could also inhibit fruit production, but since your plants are producing plenty of flowers this is probably not the case.
