#14 — Muzaffarpur’s mighty farmers, Kutch’s greenery and Happy Independence Day!

16th August, 2018



We celebrated our 72nd Independence Day yesterday and we are proud.

Proud of our rich multi-cultural food heritage; that everyday is a new discovery of ingredients, cuisines, and techniques; and of the wonderful people who are a part of our food system.

Yes, we do have a lot of challenges but with these traditions and technology we are seeing ingenious innovations to help us move ahead. #AcheDin?

Nandita Haksar’s book “The Flavours of Nationalism” is an apt read for this week. It talks about the politics of cooking and feeding people and how food just might be the “hope for the future of the Indian democracy”.

Our food issues are indeed many and Anusha’s recent medium post highlights four of them from our recent panel discussion.

Take a look! We are looking forward to hearing from you the most pressing “edible issue” that you are seeing today.

Stay Curious and Jai Hind!
