Khao badan banao

The poster from Manik's room in the film Suraj ka Satvan Ghoda, the Seventh Steed of the Sun - a classic masterpiece.

Going up on our wall very soon!!

 The  signficance is in the 80s average middle class sustaining and surviving  on a day to day basis. The undernourished and underprevileged class shifting between the fight to survive and the search of a bigger purpose. The one who dreams to be healthy in body and mind. 
Yes, the choice of stomach and the mind and the fight continues. And now  the middle class has risen.  This rise of middle class is nothing but the rise of standard of living. TV, Microwave, Car being available to everyone and that changes the logo to - 
Khao Badan Ghatao...
as in fat reduction or replacement food. 

Sad reality. From less we jumped to excess, the just fine line of  perfection only briefly touched in the 90s... They say Food will turn into pills one day, but no one i know eats for nutrition.. Everyone eats to taste the gorgeous tasty food. A big splash of salad also gets boring after sometime. Food and humans have a much deeper relationship than only survival. Its like eating and cooking are for pleasure as well as sadness - celebration foods or comfort foods.
Food, body, mind and soul...
so khao, soul banao...
