Top News Name: First Food: Culture of Taste Edited by Sunita Narain and Vibha Varshney Publisher: Centre for Science and Environment Pages: 217 Price: Rs 950 The other day at the neighbourhood shop the greens attached to the last of the winter moolis caught my eye As I moved towards the cash counter armed with a few of the freshest pieces dreaming of mooli saag steamed with split yellow pea dal I saw the vendor ripping off the greens and throwing them aside without a single word of protest from the customer It was a moment of reflection for me I realised people had forgotten to eat their greens Even those that came free with the vegetable It’s heartening to note then that there are others aware of their roots The genesis of India’s cuisine lies in its roots shoots and leaves at once healthy nutritional and medicinal As an ardent advocate of indigenous natural foods I was delighted when the Centre for Science and Environment(CSE)’s second book in the First Food series – The Culture of Taste – landed on my plate for review On the same lines as First Food: A Taste of India’s Biodiversity this one explores our country’s rich bounty of biodiverse foods that today run the risk of being lost forever under the onslaught of packaged and “chemicalised” food Says Sunita Narain of the CSE: “We are the products of created food habits [and have] moved from nutritious food to convenience food” The book begins with our indigenous greens a huge variety spread out across India in seasonal abundance each used or cooked in a way unique to each region and treated differently in each family This was what your grandmother cooked in her kitchen and what your mother insisted you ate Many of these are what is termed “forage or uncultivated foods” They didn’t need to be cultivated proliferating on their own in lush natural biodiverse habitats Yuval Noah Harari in his book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind talks about pre-historic and historical foraging societies whose secret for survival and protection from malnutrition starvation or disease came from their varied diet They were not dependent on any single kind of fixed foods as we are today — rice roti one or two dals potatoes two or three familiar vegetables meat or fish For the forager food was not only varied it was seasonal nature’s way of provided the necessary nutrition as well as a shield for the body So in the Indian context the forager may have eaten fruits berries and wild mushrooms for breakfast; waterbody greens and fish for lunch; and wild roasted yam and spit-roasted rabbit for dinner The menus changed with the seasons Cut to what our grandmothers and given my antiquity my mother fed us through the seasons — raw fresh turmeric and baby neem leaves to strengthen immunity fresh seasonal greens rich in minerals and vitamins that prevent and cure anything from allergies to arthritic ailments cleanse the body of toxins or excessive sugar; various vegetables with lots of ginger whole spices and seeds to guard against stomach ailments; and foods that cooled the body in summer and warmed it in winter The Culture of Taste takes us on a fascinating culinary journey with leaves flowers seeds and last but not the least fruits and vegetables Did you know that you could eat peepal leaves The tender pink leaves that appear for a very brief time towards the end of March are a delicacy among tribal communities and consumed raw or cooked Known for their curative and laxative properties they treat fever heart disease and dysentery as well as mumps and boils Chewing young peepal leaves strengthens the teeth as well The book springs many such surprises Through centuries literature and music have waxed lyrical about the beauty and romance of the parijat or harsinghar flower Not many have told us though that its leaves are beneficial for the liver the flowers come with diuretic properties and a paste of the seeds is used to treat boils Drawing on such indigenous wisdom and knowledge the book explains in detail the habitat seasonality and properties of each such plant how communities across the country use them providing easy-to-execute recipes at the end of each chapter Edited by Narain and conceptualised by Vibha Varshney the book features writing by well-known nutritionists scientists and natural foods practitioners such as food historian Pushpesh Pant nutritionist and food consultant Sangeeta Khanna journalist and natural foods advocate Aparna Pallavi farmer and writer Shri Padre scientist Chandra Prakash Kala among others It doesn’t end here There’s more useful data that touches upon preservation and packaging points of sale and a detailed glossary It is a laudable effort in connecting the dots between food nutrition and nature but there are a few oversights A compilation that throws such critical light on the country’s vanishing greens should have had a cover to match immediately drawing one’s attention If it’s food it must look delicious for we eat with our eyes first Instead a grey academic exterior hides the brilliance within Secondly while many of the pieces touch upon the different names of the plants in different regions a glossary with plant names in common languages would have gone a long way in making people look for them So how do I ask my vegetable vendor if he can get me garadu in Haryana Or narale in Bengal I tried but was met with blank stares Lastly as in the first book of the series eastern and north-eastern India known from ancient times as the “green bowl” of the country have not been represented well Ayurvedic texts from the 6th century BC have detailed the plethora of greens vegetables and fruits found in the region — a mindboggling variety of more than 500 most of which can still be found and are consumed Neither does it discuss greens like the fiddlehead fern and those belonging to the “bitters” category in Ayurveda or the diminishing use of fruits like the chalta or elephant apple or plants like the roselle Having said that I look forward to the third book in the series For these are books everyone should buy and read Former journalist Pritha Sen is a Gurgaon-based development consultant who

to become president of Grinnell College in Iowa NIH Director Francis Collins announced today Kington came to NIH a decade ago to be director of NIH’s behavioral sciences office and was named acting director after Elias Zerhouni resigned in October 2008 He returned to the deputy position when Collins took the helm in August 2009 A physician with a PhD in health policy and economics Kington was an unfamiliar face to most biomedical researchers when Zerhouni chose him to be deputy director in 2003 As NIH’s chief ethics officer he played the role of bad cop after a scandal erupted over industry

"It was a no-win situation" says Alan Schechter a basic researcher at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease who helped lead a protest against the rules In the end NIH slightly relaxed the rules but many scientists still consider them extreme In the past year Kington has been NIH’s point person on a move to apply tighter conflict-of-interest rules for extramural grantees As acting director he also faced another daunting though more enjoyable task: Doling out $104 billion that NIH received in the economic stimulus package in 9 months on top of its annual $30 billion budget "He had a very tough job and he learned over time By the last 2 or 3 years he was widely respected" says Schechter Ann Bonham chief scientific officer of the Association of American Medical Colleges praises Kington’s efforts to share information with university leaders in the course of disbursing the stimulus money "He handled that magnificently" Bonham says "He created a calming influence during a trying time" In an e-mail to senior staff members Collins called Kington "an ‘unsung hero’ of the NIH Many aren’t even aware of the innumerable battles he fought on behalf of our agency on behalf of our staff and in defense of science Raynard’s modest and self-effacing manner belies a lion-hearted champion of the NIH mission" For social media platforms like Facebook and
