Understanding Milk: Sifting the Real from the Clones

Exercise choice, but shun activism- it hurts the farmer, it hurts the poor, it hurts nutritional security, and it hurts common sense. Let your choice be an INFORMED one, based on facts and science not merely on belief and sentiments. And please do allow the others too to exercise this right of choice, especially the overwhelming numbers who like, and are conditioned to begin, and maybe even end, their day with a glass of milk; curd, paneer, ice cream et.al. served their way during the day. And please do understand, against the backdrop of widely prevailing hunger and malnutrition, very few are able to even exercise a choice of food, leave aside the dream of emulating food elitism such as veganism.

Cooperatives 2.0

Jayaraj has just got Ernakulam-based Bharath Agro Processing and Marketing Cooperative (BAMCO) registered as a multi-state cooperative society. The first supermarket under the new entity has been opened recently. With over two dozen Grameen Samrudhi stores mentored by Sahakar Bharati since 2017 also being brought under the BAMCO umbrella, the society is all set to have its presence felt in the state.
