Matter of taste
Our vegetables have become blemish-free, resistant to pest and long-lasting. But they have lost their flavour in the process.
My readers will recall my defense of non-vegetarianism in India. As I had said, the discussion about the food we eat is more about how we grow food and how much we eat. It is not about the food—in this case, meat—per se. Livestock is also an asset of farmers, I hold, and if we take away their ability to sell it for meat, we make them poorer. It demonitises their important asset. Many of my readers had responded in anguish to my position. I want to keep discussing manufacture of food with you, but this time, from the other side of the fence.
