Good food hunt
by Pro Indian on Dec 15, 2017 03:29 PM

YOu will struggle to get good & fresh food at Goa. On my holiday, we struggled to get good food on the move. Finally we could get good food only after we exited Goa and on the borders of Karnataka. So this article must be boasting about 5 star hotels. But ordinary hotels ard restraus are just fooling u.

most popular food destinations (Goa, Kerala and Lucknow) identified here is noted primarily for its range and quality of non-vegetarian cuisine.

Which means that bigger and bigger segments of middle and upper middle class Indians are rooting for non-vegetarian food !

Whatever happened to the big hype (promoted as an aside by the Sangh Parivar) about India being some exotic and unique island of vegetarianism ?

60% of Indians?
by Aravind Nair on Dec 12, 2017 09:08 AM  | Hide replies

The article mentions "60 per cent of Indians intend to plan a gastronomic getaway in 2018." Wonder whether 60% of the population can afford getaways, let alone gastronomic getaways :-)

True. And how ironic for anyone to make such a claim !

Incidentally, both the NSSO and the World Sanitation Congress (an arm of the UN) have surveyed and recorded that about 64 % of all Indians defecate in the open due to extreme poverty and lack of running water.

We must conclude then that a large segment of Indians, who cant even afford to have functional toilets, can still afford gastronomic getaways !
