Updated: May 11 2015 4:15 pm Related News With an increase in the number of obese and overweight people from 857 million in 1980 to 21 billion in 2013 the growing epidemic of obesity despite information overload uprecendented interest in this area and increased body consciousness is a paradox Sadly the co-morbidities associated with obesity are increasing rapidly even for those with lower body mass index and people who are not overweight Non-alcoholic fatty liver polycystic ovaries (irregular menstruation) and impaired glucose tolerance are some of the common problems one is seeing these days Along with the rapid rise in auto-immune diseases and malignancies it seems that the lifestyle disease burden is staring us in the face more than ever before Food addiction although controversial has recently gained attention in scientific literature and falls into the realm of atypical eating disorders It has been implicated in craving binging and obesity Its recognition may be useful in management of complications like diabetes obesity heart disease and other chronic conditions Food addiction implies that there is a biochemical condition in the body that creates a physiological craving for specific foods This craving and its underlying biochemistry is comparable to an alcoholic’s craving for alcohol (a refined carbohydrate) It suggests that specific foods especially those which are rich in fat and sugar and/or salt are capable of promoting addiction More recently even gluten is being recognised as one among them These foods seem to affect the same addictive brain pathways that are influenced by alcohol and drugs Highly palatable foods are not addictive per se but become addictive following prolonged restriction/ binging These could be as diverse as refined carbohydrates processed foods cheese chocolates sugars and milk proteins Relevance of food addiction may be path-breaking in the treatment of overeating and obesity which so-far has been associated with eating disorders caused from emotional problems that could be treated by psychotherapy or counselling While this may be true for many individuals who have used food to manage their emotions or deal with stress the problem is more complex for the true food addict The key feature of any addiction is loss of control In food addiction loss of control is manifested by either more frequent or larger meals Although anecdotal reports are abundant few studies have been able to document addictive properties of foods meeting rigorous scientific criteria While some may argue that all foods are addictive it is proposed that some foods are more addictive than others Tecent findings suggest that it may also be the way in which foods are consumed (eg alternating access and restriction) rather than their sensory properties that leads to addiction In other words palatable foods alone are not responsible because even non-palatable foods can be addictive Ishi Khosla is a

leader gets the chance to proudly display his ignorance on the floor of the Parliament with live television beaming it into a million homes But then Rahul Gandhi is no ordinary politician The Gandhi dynast is insured from repeated failures cushioned against dubious statistics immune from bad data indifferent to public ridicule and forever guaranteed an unquestioned pass from an entrenched servile mainstream media that is determined to package and repackage a failed brand Arun Jaitley and Rahul Gandhi PTI The Congress vice-president frequently takes power naps inside the floor of the House only to rise up on occasions and deliver catchy slogans such as ‘suit-boot ki sarkar’ or ‘fair-and-lovely’ On Thursday he sought to needle the Centre on price rise by relying on an old spoof ‘Arhar Modi’ — a take on Narendra Modi’s 2014 campaign slogan ‘har har Modi’ which was first heard during the campaign trail of last year’s Bihar Assembly polls It is not clear yet whether Rahul’s jibe will gain currency during the upcoming elections or even if it does whether that will benefit the Congress But the glee on display in certain sections of the media which latched on to it and sought to define it as a ‘game-changing moment in Indian politics’ spoke volumes about how the Congress’s famed ecosystem is alive and kicking This is not to say that price rise isn’t a sensitive issue Prices of essential commodities have seen a sharp spike with dal shooting through the roof It affects all and the poor who rely on pulses for protein are the hardest hit Political parties and leaders are well within their rights to put on mat the government of the day if it fails in its job to contain it But there are two problems with Rahul Gandhi’s opportunistic stance One the Gandhi scion failed to provide any reliable data to back up his claim that the government has indeed failed to manage prices with all factors remaining constant He leaned solely on rhetoric It is a bit rich because when in power the Congress was guilty of the grossest economic mismanagement In its two terms the UPA royally screwed the Indian economy and left behind a trail of destruction which the current government is still struggling to fix Two while targeting the Prime Minister on Thursday and asking him to "set a date for lowering of prices" he displayed a breathtaking lack of basic knowledge in how economy functions The metaphor is a great political slogan but miserable explainer of a complex process But let us concentrate on the first point In 2014 in an exhaustive article titled ‘How UPA turned NDA’s economic growth into shambles’ columnist and author Vivek Kaul wrote in Firstpost how economic growth during the UPA rule fed on the economic growth during the NDA rule and how the government to follow will have a tough time turning it around Kaul made two basic points One UPA 1 capitalized on the tailwind provided by Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s NDA government but eventually killed off the all the engines of growth by the end of its second term Two the "massive" 85% and 105% economic growth during fiscals 2009 and 2010 were primarily the result of huge public spending The UPA inherited a 79% economic growth and an average 48% rate of inflation from the NDA The index of industrial production a measure of the industrial activity in the country was growing at 8% in early 2004 The fiscal deficit for the year 2003-2004 came in at 45% of the GDP In all these metrics the UPA left the country poorer despite enjoying consecutive good monsoons towards the end What’s more the writer pointed out how fiscal deficit for the year 2013-2014 was projected to be at 46% of the GDP which was "understated to the extent of Rs 200000 crore" So the scion of a dynasty whose government recklessly spent money killed the growth engines and then cooked the books now accuses another of ‘mismanaging price rise’ As the Union finance minister pointed out in his rebuttal to the Congress vice-president the UPA left the economy in a dire state with Consumer Price Index (CPI) and food inflation at double digits Wholesale Price Index inflation around 6-7 per cent and limited growth prospects In contrast inflation was brought down for 18 straight months with the country has witnessed negative WPI inflation That Arun Jaitley forgot to mention RBI governor Raghuram Rajan’s role in this battle is another matter altogether Now to come to the second point The FM said on Thursday that if steps to increase pulse production had been taken in the past decade then dal prices wouldn’t have reached the Rs 180-mark The crux of the problem in spiraling dal prices lies in a mismatch between demand and supply As MD and CEO of Rural Agri Ventures Girish Aivalli writes in his article on why ‘India needs a pulses revolution’ lentils in India recorded less than 40 percent growth in production in the past 40 years while its per capita availability declined from 60 grams a day in the 1950s to 35 grams a day in the 2000s whereas India needs an estimated annual growth of 42 percent to ensure projected demand of 30 million tonnes by 2030 Which is why India has the highest production highest consumption and is also the highest importer of pulses Jaitley pointed out in Parliament on Thursday: "While the demand is for 23 million tonnes the production was 17 million tonnes leaving a gap of six million tones which would be procured from Myanmar Mozambique and Tanzania" He also said steps are being to create a buffer of 20 lakh tonnes Now why is demand outstripping supply There are several reasons Apart from the immediate reason that India has suffered consecutive bad monsoons which has affected the production there are long-standing systemic issues at play The government’s current incentive structure is such that it rewards farmers for growing rice wheat and sugarcane all water intensive crops by providing much of the subsidies on fertilisers power and irrigation to these crops These subsidies amount to more than Rs 10000/ hectare If the same amount were given to pulse growers they would be incentivised to produce more Then there is the question of lack of assured procurement which crops like rice and wheat enjoy but pulses doesn’t This lack of support mechanism for procurement and marketing has been a major impediment to the propagation of pulses Then there are issues related to low yield As Avialli points out: "Low genetic yield of Indian pulses and their vulnerability to pests and diseases is a major hindrance to adoption of pulses by farmers Being rain-fed pulses often experience drought at critical growth stages The risk of low productivity and income is too high for farmers to bear The lack of drought- and disease-resistant varieties of pulse seeds is alarming" Point is these are endemic problems which Indian economy suffers from with little to no focus on resource-saving technologies For being the dominant party in power the Congress would do well to introspect how pulses production came to be historically ignored under its watch Merely blaming the government with cheap slogans won’t serve any purpose By: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Updated:

GANESHOTSAV devotees who haven’t memorised the Ganesh aarti need not go looking for a copy of the aarti sangrah — a booklet containing the aarti which has shlokas recited daily during the ten-day festival A smartphone application will now make it easier for them to remember the verses With a website to showcase Ganpati Bappa from various homes online also in the works the popular elephant-god is all set to go viral Developed by the founder of Utsavaarambh — a social networking website connecting Ganesh mandals — the App is set to be launched on August 5 Last year the group had developed virtual reality applications for six major mandals across the city Taking it ahead the founders of the application claim the App will further help devotees get a better festival experience “Our application named Majha Morya Aarti Sangrah will contain all the aartis shloks pooja vidhi (practices) for Ganpati sthapana and also visarjan We have been able to feed in up to 20 regularly sung aartis in the App till now Users can make use of the section with the list of items (samagri) required for pooja” Aniket Bilare founder of the application said For Bilare the application meant an efficient use of technology in ensuring that nobody misses out on religious practice “In comparison to the religious knowledge of our previous generations not all of us have memorised the aartis or shlokas Also not everyone takes the effort to buy the shloka book The App will be a one-step tool to collect all the aartis and understand the words and their meaning” Bilare added The App will also be tied-up with the organisation’s event called social media cha Raja wherein they plan to request participants to share their household Ganpati decoration pictures “These pictures will be posted on our social media platform and the one with maximum engagements will be elected as the winner of the competition We also invite photographs of different Ganpatis on the site from which we will choose the best” he added The group also plans to create Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) applications for more than 15 popular Ganesh mandals in the city including Dongricha Raja Fortcha Raja Chinchpoklicha Chintamani and Girgaoncha Raja The applications will also try to give messages on social causes such as women empowerment saving the girl child and afforestation “We are also planning to make a database of all dhol-tasha pathaks in the city The aim is to ensure different talents associated with the religious cause come under one roof and are given exposure People like photographers and artists who have previous work to show can associate themselves with this group” Bilare added The future plans of the group include introducing an e-commerce application and website that will help
