be done for it to be a success Thousands of villages across the country continue to be deprived of internet connectivity — the widening digital gap between country’s urban and rural parts needs to be bridged (‘Need tech push to bridge divide: PM’ IE July 2) For this the government needs to pool in resources with private players The Centre and states should collaborate as arguing over “rights of way” is a waste of public time and money M Jeyaram Sholavandan Strategic silence The prime minister’s silence on the allegations of the Congress about the BJP ministers may be strategic (‘In a corner’ IE Telescope July 2) A PM cannot speak about daily accusations when most of them are sourced from the tweets of a disgruntled businessman Perhaps he is waiting and collecting evidence to silence the Congress once and for all However timing is of the essence in politics and a “silent too long” PM could cost the BJP YG Chouksey Pune Dignity sacrosanct The SC has ruled out any kind of mediation in rape cases by stating that the dignity of women is sacrosanct This would give relief to victims and their families The culprits using muscle or money would often force victims to reach a compromise and thus escape the law Instead of giving relief to the culprits law officers ought to ensure they are adequately punished because no one has the right to encroach upon the dignity of others Arun Goyal Patiala Secure Rights This refers to the article ‘Because of the 44th amendment’ (IE July 2) Every Indian will be relieved by the emphatic assertion of lawyer Shanti Bhushan that the 44th Amendment to the Constitution has practically plugged the possibility of another suspension of important fundamental rights under Articles 19 and 21 Of course nothing can prevent a despot from annulling the Constitution itself The most shocking detail of Bhushan’s narrative however is the fact that four of the five judges on the constitutional bench of the Supreme Court went to the extent of saying that “even if a person was illegally deprived of his life for no reason there was no legal remedy” VChandramohan Mumbai For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More

role in curbing smuggling and inflow of fake currency notes at the borders and said Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System is essential for border security He said the family of each killed trooper should get Rs 1 crore as compensation and asked all the Director Generals of paramilitary forces to contact him if this is not implemented The Home Minister asked BSF personnel not to believe everything they see on social media and avoid posting content on it "It is our responsibility to protect the unity and integrity of our country" The Home Minister also pointed out that some BSF troopers at the event were not wearing their caps "The forces should pay special attention to the discipline and should be alert about their dress code" the Minister remarked Delivering a message to those trying to join the paramilitary forces and army he said "a passion to serve the nation must be in their mind" "National self-esteem is very important for anybody along with personal self-esteem and nobody shall ever compromise with his self-esteem The national self esteem cannot be compromised when any foreign power tries to disturb peace at the Indian borders" Singh said he does not consider the BSF as an ordinary organisation but considers it as the "first wall of defence" Appreciating the BSF’s civic action programme the Minister said about 35000 troopers have been promoted to Head Constable He also said that the recently launched web portal to redress the grievances of the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) personnel will be personally monitored by him once a month to

13000 However the report itself says that this price leak is not from their usual sources so it needs to be taken with a pinch of salt The specifications in the report are more in line with what has already been leaked earlier According to NPU Nokia D1C will sport a Snapdragon 430 processor Adreno 505 GPU Android 70 Nougat and will come in two display sizes; one will be a 5-inch Full HD version

agreement with Nokia for mobile phones and tablets and a slew of devices are planned for 2017 According to HMD Global CEO Arto Nummela “India is key market for Nokia’s next phase of this journey” This

years ago when a Bolivian friend cooked it for us in Costa Rica Until then I had only read about quinoa on international food websites As I inspected the traditional Andes super crop I noticed how the quinoa looked like translucent flat beads each grain fluffy and distinct It reminded me of the broken wheat khichdi we eat at home and my friend Stephanie Weiss and I began exchanging notes on prep methods I ended the conversation by saying that I couldn’t wait to tell my friends back home that I had tried this heritage grain Read More Little did I know that by the time I returned from studying climate change like the rest of the world quinoa would have caught the fancy of hipsters in India Quinoa burgers quinoa salads quinoa what have yous’ were everywhere People were spending as much as a week’s fruits and vegetables budget in buying quinoa Not only that we were scattering Mexican chia seeds over our morning oatmeal and buying tossed kale concoctions from salad bars All food flown from different parts of the world piling precious carbon miles onto our plates In fact reading restaurant menus was like watching a star-studded film – Kissa Kinoa Kous Kous aur Kale ka According to Stephanie now an environmental researcher and consultant in Bolivia as the demand for quinoa spiralled across the world it led to a change in consumption habits in the places of production mainly Bolivia and Peru “It became more profitable to sell quinoa rather than eat it” she said “This has an adverse impact on nutrition and tradition According to the Bolivian government only 15 per cent of the quinoa produced in Bolivia is consumed within its borders currently” This salad with kale has more edible flowers than all the flora at a Lal Bagh flower show (Source: Klass im garte/Flickr) Our eating habits and culinary fads are having a colossal impact on communities in South America “The craze for quinoa has had a direct impact on the price increase for local markets in recent years It’s also led to degradation of the fields with declining fertility increased pests and diseases lack of respect for natural cycles soil” says Arafat Espinoza Ortiz an agronomist in Peru Food miles and sustainability aside our “let’s eat what’s trending” consumption phase has even led to quinoa and chia seeds being grown in India Often these are market-driven decisions sometimes pragmatic or ecological ones An organic farmer from Amravati in Maharashtra shared that they are all disillusioned with cotton and are looking at growing foods that the market wants “We don’t want to grow cotton” Rahul Bole said “Tell us what to grow next something like baby corn something that the market likes The Mumbai market especially” Bole’s community is contemplating growing kale or marketing their free-range eggs The chia seed rage has spread thick and fast among food faddists who use it to make everything from puddings to smoothies (Source: T Tseng/Flickr) Look at grocery stores and hypermarkets a little carefully the next time: All of them have begun stocking alternatives including bajra idlis mixes ragi biscuits and packets of little fox millet The quinoa trend has fuelled a resurgence in India’s ancient cereal crops – millets A more sustainable option millets aren’t thirsty crops like paddy Rather they are hardy healthy and versatile when it comes to cooking them Also look at menus with a more discerning eye Restaurants are making local seasonal and indigenous fare an integral part of their menu Gondhoraj lemon Gobindobhog rice and moringa leaves prominently feature in the Bangalore-based Toast and Tonic’s menu Millets of Mewar in Udaipur makes Nutella-drenched millet pancakes aloo tikki and kebabs while Smoke House Deli has a fabulous health menu with

to work your way through a salad (Source: Jessica Splenger/Flickr) Accept food logic As Somji an organic and Fairtrade cotton farmer with Chetna Organic in Telangana put it “All you city people love to eat rice We don’t eat that For us it’s jowar and makki We eat the food of our ancestors – millets” Once you start looking up ingenious foods you realise how much a part of our diets they are hipster trends not withstanding Until now they weren’t cool enough rather they were something just made in our home kitchens Gujaratis for instance make crisp delicious puris out of rajgira atta which is made from the seeds of amaranth Moringa leaves may have now caught the fancy of international chefs but we have been cooking them with dal in the south for ages And then there’s ragi and jowar rotis hearty and healthy rotis that deserve to be eaten more It’s a paradox in many ways – at one end there are concerns about sustainability food miles and the impact on smallholder farmers; but at the other end of the spectrum it has created a market for traditional produce Producers are expanding to newer international markets compelling them to adopt more ecological fair trade practices And chefs and cooks are experimenting with traditional produce tossing in diversity into our diets Stephanie dug up a quote from Delgado F and Delgado M Vivir y comer bien en los Andes Bolivianos: “The importance of quinoa in strengthening food security and sovereignty lies in the traditional uses and customs recipes and culinary techniques adapted to this grain and inherited by generations” Which is pretty much what we could do with indigenous foods in India as well – celebrate them by cooking with them – for the farmers the climate and for us For news updates follow us on Facebook Twitter
