India

Where are we going?!?

I am in India on a long vacation (not really planned it to be long, but ending up to be one 🙂 ). One does notice a lot of changes each time one visits the country. What hit me this time was how people are going toward unhealthy eating habits more and more…
One particular ad kinda jolted me. It is for a packed fresh(oxymoron?!?) fruit juice which ends with a mom-son duo saying “Ab koi paani nahi maangega! (no one would ask for water anymore!)” I have been reading about how you must take the whole fruit instead of the juices because of sugar content and less fibre etc.., And here I am looking at an ad that says no one would ask for water ( Obviously there are articles over articles claiming how important it is to drink water…am sure it is more so in a hot country like India!!)
So, I guess along with the spending power, increase in loans, traffic and all else…ill-health is also being spread
Hope we improve economically and learn not to repeat the mistakes made by places we are trying to emulate…
