Mumbai: Rotten chicken supplied to Chinese carts 8.8.2018 DNA: Mumbai
A chicken-meat shop in Sewri was caught supplying around 25 kilos of rotting meat to roadside Chinese carts. The Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) and Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), acting on a complaint by social activist Bala Vengurlekar, raided a shop owned by Nimish Dagal in Bara Devi slum in Sewri on Tuesday. "Chickens that had died during transportation were purchased by the shop owner and sold it customers, instead of freshly-butchered meat," said FDA Joint Commissioner (Food) Chandrashekhar Salunkhe, adding, "As soon as we got the information, our inspectors went to the shop to inspect it and seized 25 kg of raw chicken meat." The meat was sold at Rs 30 per kg and Dagal did not have a registered licence. The FDA has filed an FIR against him under the Food Safety and Standard (FSSAI) Act.

DNA Mumbai Anniversary: Rebelling against the times, these artists have carved a niche in Art World 27.7.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Alyque Padamsee: Brand new forever At the recent Mumbai launch of Pavan K Varma’s Adi Shankaracharya, when the floor was thrown open to questions, veteran theatre person and ad-guru Alyque Padamsee asked Varma why radical Hindutva found so many takers.  The nonagenarian did not wait for the mike, he did not preface his question with esoterics and the booming voice he threw could be heard across the auditorium, leading to applause. But that’s him. There are mavericks and there is Padamsee. Never one to shy off calling out social evils, he has often been the voice to go to for mediapersons as both social observer and commentator. Alyque’s grandfather was conferred the title ‘Padamsee’ by the government when he distributed all the food in his granary in the village he headed as sarpanch during a famine. And then it became the family name.  The advertising fraternity has variously named him ‘ad-man of the century’, ‘brand father of Indian advertising’, and even ‘God’. He has not only created over 100 brands, ...

In Pics: Italian photographer faces backlash after series depicting 'India's hungry dreaming about food' goes viral 25.7.2018 DNA: Popular News
A series of photographs by an award-winning Italian photographer seeking to show underprivileged Indians alongside fake food has been widely discredited as “poverty porn”. Alessio Mamo, a Sicily-based photographer, had submitted a series of  photographs showing a group of poor children and adults in Uttar and Madhya Pradesh. While explaining the photographs on his Instagram handle, Mamo, who uses the subject ‘Dreaming About Food’ says, “Despite economic growth, a majority of the Indian population still lives in extreme poverty and disease. Behind India’s new-found economic strength are 300 million poor people who live on less than $1 per day. Government figures may indicate a reduction in poverty. But the truth is, with increasing global food prices, poverty is spreading everywhere like a swarm of locusts. These pictures are taken in rural areas where conditions are worse than in the cities and where close to 70% of India’s population reside today. Statistics show that 2.1 million children under 5 years ...
