The Universe in One Tangerine: A Politics of Inter-being 17.6.2017 DNA: India
I have always been a fan of salted cashewnuts—a very expensive treat anywhere in the world. When I was a child, the canteen of Metro Cinema in Bombay had them and if we were very good and very lucky, we might get to eat them during the interval. Those were the only salted cashews I had ever eaten. As an adult, it felt luxurious finding them readily in American supermarkets and of course, on the road in Sri Lanka—still an expensive treat, but available! Like others, I eat cashew nuts quickly and thoughtlessly, as if to catch them before they disappear.   Recently, I got to meet people who work in this sector. They do not like to eat cashew nuts. Perhaps this is because they cannot forget the work that goes into making the nuts look and taste as we like them. They are peeled by hand, stinging and staining the hand. Processing them is laborious. It is not as if cashews grow on trees all the time! It is a short season, and the trees take a long time to get to the point where they yield fruit. Into that long ...

Bovine slaughter ban not meant to hurt any community: Harsh Vardhan 5.6.2017 DNA: India
The Centre has received several suggestions on its recent ban on cattle slaughter and is now contemplating ways to respond to it, Harsh Vardhan, Environment Minister told reporters on the sidelines of World Environment Day celebrations.

The new rules under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act were not intended to affect the food habits of a particular community or hit out at the slaughter business," the minister said. Vardhan also said that the US pulling out of the Paris Agreement does not change India's commitment to fighting global warming and climate change. "India's commitment to the different elements of nature is not because of any agreement; it is inherent to us, built over thousands of years. We have been working tirelessly on the issue for many years, even before the Paris Agreement was signed. The PM has reiterated that our stance will not change," he said. During the celebrations, the minister also released a mobile application which has the GIS of ...
