This ‘Basic Conversation’ is a part of the critical response of INTER-ACTIONS to the contemporary development models that have radically altered the way we deal with the basic human need of food. Our speed-infested time has filled the realm of food with exploitative, gendered, and even fatal enterprises. So, we find sodas and maggis selling best in the market, even as everyone knows they are harmful, and that their advertisements misrepresent. We see food processing centres becoming major agents of environmental pollution and degradation of nature. But what is the way out? Does critiquing alone help? Do protests bring awareness to producers or consumers of new age foods?
