  • The feel-good "healthy"

    The feel-good "healthy" blarney of the junk food commercials cannot hide the fact that the products they deceptively seek to promote are are essentially still the same : high-sodium/sugar junk.

    The claim of a politician made some time ago which drew a lot of flak from "progressive, rational" people that consuming noodles causes hormonal changes which ultimately leads to rapes, must also be scientifically validated for truth.

    In any case, the biscuits business is really scandalous! Eating flavoured baked maida as a food??? This is one of the most destructive legacies of the hated colonial British and look who's calling we Indians backward!!!

    Last but not the least, aren't the captains of these very junk food industries that are now and then invited as distinguished panelists/speakers to business seminars, functions, Global this meet & that meet - where they are sought out for their pearls of corporate wisdom and also presented with awards. Where does this hypocrisy stop?

    Independence is still a long way to go in our country!
