Kitchens of Kerala 20.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Food offers one the ultimate comforts in life, believes Lathika George, author of The Suriani Kitchen. Although she watched her mother dole out some excellent Kerala dishes during her growing up years in Mumbai, Lathika wasn't always a foodie. "We would have traditional Kerala food for lunch everyday and Goan or Western food in the evenings. My mother was a great cook," she says nostalgically. It was only after marriage that cooking started to interest her. "My husband is a chemical engineer and we were in Kuwait for the first three years of our marriage. Missing India and our families, we gravitated towards the foods that reminded us of home — the cuisine of Kerala. That's when you realise how the ordinary flavours of home cooking make the best memories and form lifelong connections. Writing about my culinary heritage was, I guess, a natural step towards documenting these food memories for my children and for anyone interested in the culture and cuisine of the Syrian Christian ...

'No order to deny foodgrain for lack of Aadhaar' 20.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
On the defensive over the death of an 11-year-old girl in Jharkhand due to starvation, the Modi government on Friday made it clear that it had not made mandatory the linking of ration cards with Aadhaar for receiving benefits under the food security law.

"We have been saying time and again, there is no order to deny foodgrain to the poor through the PDS for lack of Aadhaar seeding," Consumer Affairs and Public Distribution Minister Ramvilas Paswan said.

Reports said Santoshi Kumari died after starving for four days as her family hadnt got ration for four months.

Toxic cloud of Hydrogen Cyanide and Benzene spotted on Saturn's moon Titan 20.10.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
 Scientists using data from NASA's Cassini mission to Saturn have found evidence of a toxic hybrid ice in a wispy cloud high above the south pole of ringed planet's largest moon, Titan. The finding is a new demonstration of the complex chemistry occurring in Titan's atmosphere - in this case, cloud formation in the giant moon's stratosphere - and part of a collection of processes that ultimately helps deliver a smorgasbord of organic molecules to Titan's surface. Invisible to the human eye, the cloud was detected at infrared wavelengths by the Composite Infrared Spectrometer (CIRS) on the Cassini spacecraft. Located at an altitude of about 160 to 210 kilometres, the cloud is far above the methane rain clouds of Titan's troposphere, or lowest region of the atmosphere. The new cloud covers a large area near the south pole, from about 75 to 85 degrees south latitude. Laboratory experiments were used to find a chemical mixture that matched the cloud's spectral signature - the chemical fingerprint measured by ...
