Around the Platter

 “Food is our common ground, a universal experience.”
In a society which is surging towards the globalization in every aspect, there are significant transformations taking place in our consumer culture. As we are into innovations in food-processing, our eating habits are redefined; with genetically modified crops coming into the kitchen, there are a lot of debates and discussions about the consequences and future food patterns. With the increased gap between rural-urban lifestyles, the consumption of food is being reduced from ritual to compulsion. Our urban community has developed into a more cosmopolitan culture, which is influencing in our consumption methodology.

Around the Platter is an attempt to envisage these concerns using pictorial sequences culminating with the idea of ‘feed the world’.
