Changing Food Habits: Fodder For Thought

dians consumed tea or coffee everyday. Despite the sweltering heat, only 4% of Indians take to cold drinks on a regular basis, although it must be noted that these drinks are gaining popularity among the young.

The survey also revealed that alcohol consumption is quite popular among the middle-aged and is avid in communities where drinking is not a taboo.13% of the country’s population drink regularly. It is estimated that alcoholism, in our country, is here to stay unless appropriate measures are taken to bring it under control. The majority of the people surveyed support a government ban on alcohol.

India, being the land of extremes, is seeing a rising trend in childhood obesity producing a new breed of juvenile ‘jumbos’, while having its share of ‘tapeworms on diet’ in the form of the underprivileged among the dalits, the adivasis, the urban and the rural poor, who struggle for two square meals a day.

Some hard truths that have emerged from the survey should not be undermined. With 45% of Brahmins breaking the ground rules of their belief by consuming meat, and with ‘aggressive’ vegetarianism being used to coerce the ‘minority’, are we not becoming a land of the intolerant hypocrites? Is the proverbial Indian tolerance melting into a myth? Although a ban may help to curb the bane of alcoholism, it must be treated as an abominable social evil and dealt with accordingly.

Let us leave behind the days when dietary choices decided the destiny of the nation and look forward to a blazing tomorrow that is unblemished by inequality, thereby, saving our great nation from the brink of a civilzational collapse.
