Cabbages & Kings: An open letter to my fellow Parsis 21.10.2017
"You succumbed to his persistence Spent time you had to waste — Victim to his insistence — But one can"t fault his taste..." From Aas Paas Rhymes by Bachchoo My Dear Bawajis and Banuon, Wallas and Wallis, Four score and seven years ago... no, sorry, 1,200 years ago, our ancestors, landed in Sanjan, Gujarat, fleeing the harshness of the Arab conquest of Persia. There is some story about the king of the territory demonstrating the lack of space in his kingdom by calling for a brimful cup of milk. Then the Zoroastrian leader of the boat-people called for a lime and squeezed it into the milk — and lo and behold the milk curdled, as milk must, and became yoghurt, causing the king to repent and say: "We need a bit of yoghurt, you are welcome." I have always thought this story somewhat improbable. Why would the king think that a boatload of immigrants would flood his schools with kids and his National Health Service hospitals with their halt and lame? Besides, ...

Dev 360: Hungry India - Are we angry enough? 21.10.2017
Do we really trail North Korea and Iraq in the malnutrition stakes? There have been outbursts of anger at India being ranked 100th out 119 countries in the latest edition of the Global Hunger Index by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI). Experts are quarrelling over the methodology and evaluation parameters and in a hyper-polarised India, it comes as no surprise that the hunger scores have triggered jousts between supporters and critics of the Narendra Modi government. Has malnutrition really worsened since 2014? The short answer — we don"t know because we don"t have the most recent data. But does the commotion over such ranks really matter when Santoshi, an 11-year-old girl in Jharkhand, died begging for rice last fortnight? According to a Web portal, the girl died crying for bhaat (rice). Her family didn"t have any. Her family"s ration card was reportedly cancelled because it was not linked to their Aadhaar number, say local Right to Food Campaign ...

Fasting every two days may help fight obesity  One day of fasting after every two days may help to fight obesity and other metabolic disorders, suggests a recent study. According to researchers, an intermittent fasting regime, up to 16 weeks, without otherwise having to count calories may help fight obesity and other metabolic disorders. Such fasting already shows benefits after only six weeks. The findings indicated that intermittent fasting in mice helped to kick-start the animals' metabolism and to burn fat by generating body heat. The research, in general, has shown that unhealthy eating habits and sedentary lifestyles are leading to development of lifestyle-related metabolic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity. The reserchers exposed the groups of mice to 16 weeks of intermittent fasting. The recurring regimen saw the animals being fed for two days, followed by one day without anything to eat.Their calorie intake was not adjusted otherwise. Four months later, the mice in the fasting ...
