AID INDIA and a couple of NGOs are organizing Brinjal festival and is designed to draw big public attention to the critical issue of GM foods that pose threat to our health and our biodiversity. The reason for singling out ‘Brinjal’ is that the first GM crop being pushed into our market is Bt Brinjal. Let’s work towards making it a success, which will be a step towards demanding our right to safe food.
I will not be in Bangalore for the festival due to my personal travel to Chennai, but would ask my readers to visit the same. We are also trying to create awareness campaign at Forum Mall this weekend. Meet Brinjal, badanekayi, the king of vegetables which comes with its own crown!
