Why a Brinjal Festival?
With Bt-Brinjal on the verge of approval as the first GM food into Indian Food Chain, Genetically Modified (GM) food crops pose a grave threat to the diversity and to our health as consumers. There is also a threat for the traditional way of cultivation of brinjals so far in India. The Brinjal Festival is an attempt to bring a better consciousness and respect for our rich diverse food. We should make informed choices about food, one of the most fundamental right.
