A Feast for the Future

Close your eyes and imagine the not too distant future: The Statue of Liberty is up to her knees in water, the streets of lower Manhattan resemble the canals of Venice, and hurricanes arrive in the fall and stay until summer. Now, open your eyes and see the beautiful planet that we will destroy if we do not do something. Now is the time for change. Our future is in our control if we take actions, ranging from small steps, such as not using plastic straws, to large ones, such as reducing fossil fuel consumption and electing leaders who take the problem seriously.

 Hosting a dinner party is an extraordinary way to publicize what is at stake. At my potluck, I would serve linguini with clams. The clams would be sautéed in white wine sauce. The pasta tossed with a light coat of butter and topped with freshly shredded parmesan. I choose this meal because it cannot be made if global warming’s patterns persist. Soon enough, the ocean will be too warm to cultivate clams, vineyards will be too sweltering to grow grapes, and wheat fields will dry out, leaving us without pasta.

I think that giving my guests a delicious meal and then breaking the news to them that its ingredients would be unattainable if Earth continues to get hotter is a creative strategy to initiate action. Plus, on the off chance the conversation gets drastically tense, pasta is a relatively difficult food to throw.

In YES! Magazine’s article, “Cooking Stirs the Pot for Social Change,” Korsha Wilson says “…beyond the narrow definition of what cooking is, you can see that cooking is and has always been an act of resistance.” I hope that my dish inspires people to be aware of what’s at stake with increasing greenhouse gas emissions and work toward creating a clean energy future.

 My guest list for the potluck would include two groups of people: local farmers, who are directly and personally affected by rising temperatures, increased carbon dioxide, drought, and flooding, and people who either do not believe in human-caused climate change or don’t think it affects anyone. I would invite the farmers or farm owners because their jobs and crops are dependent on the weather. I hope that after hearing a farmer’s perspective, climate-deniers would be awakened by the truth and more receptive to the effort to reverse these catastrophic trends.

Earth is a beautiful planet that provides everything we’ll ever need, but because of our pattern of living—wasteful consumption, fossil fuel burning, and greenhouse gas emissions— our habitat is rapidly deteriorating. Whether you are a farmer, a long-shower-taking teenager, a worker in a pollution-producing factory, or a climate-denier, the future of humankind is in our hands. The choices we make and the actions we take will forever affect planet Earth.

Apple Pie Embrace

It’s 1:47 a.m. Thanksgiving smells fill the kitchen. The sweet aroma of sugar-covered apples and buttery dough swirls into my nostrils. Fragrant orange and rosemary permeate the room and every corner smells like a stroll past the open door of a French bakery. My eleven-year-old eyes water, red with drowsiness, and refocus on the oven timer counting down. Behind me, my mom and aunt chat to no end, fueled by the seemingly self-replenishable coffee pot stashed in the corner. Their hands work fast, mashing potatoes, crumbling cornbread, and covering finished dishes in a thin layer of plastic wrap. The most my tired body can do is sit slouched on the backless wooden footstool. I bask in the heat escaping under the oven door.

 As a child, I enjoyed Thanksgiving and the preparations that came with it, but it seemed like more of a bridge between my birthday and Christmas than an actual holiday. Now, it’s a time of year I look forward to, dedicated to family, memories, and, most importantly, food. What I realized as I grew older was that my homemade Thanksgiving apple pie was more than its flaky crust and soft-fruit center. This American food symbolized a rite of passage, my Iraqi family’s ticket to assimilation. 

 Some argue that by adopting American customs like the apple pie, we lose our culture. I would argue that while American culture influences what my family eats and celebrates, it doesn’t define our character. In my family, we eat Iraqi dishes like mesta and tahini, but we also eat Cinnamon Toast Crunch for breakfast. This doesn’t mean we favor one culture over the other; instead, we create a beautiful blend of the two, adapting traditions to make them our own.

 That said, my family has always been more than the “mashed potatoes and turkey” type.

My mom’s family immigrated to the United States in 1976. Upon their arrival, they encountered a deeply divided America. Racism thrived, even after the significant freedoms gained from the Civil Rights Movement a few years before. Here, my family was thrust into a completely unknown world: they didn’t speak the language, they didn’t dress normally, and dinners like riza maraka seemed strange in comparison to the Pop Tarts and Oreos lining grocery store shelves.

 If I were to host a dinner party, it would be like Thanksgiving with my Chaldean family. The guests, my extended family, are a diverse people, distinct ingredients in a sweet potato casserole, coming together to create a delicious dish.

In her article “Cooking Stirs the Pot for Social Change,” Korsha Wilson writes, “each ingredient that we use, every technique, every spice tells a story about our access, our privilege, our heritage, and our culture.” Voices around the room will echo off the walls into the late hours of the night while the hot apple pie steams at the table’s center.

We will play concan on the blanketed floor and I’ll try to understand my Toto, who, after forty years, still speaks broken English. I’ll listen to my elders as they tell stories about growing up in Unionville, Michigan, a predominately white town where they always felt like outsiders, stories of racism that I have the privilege not to experience. While snacking on sunflower seeds and salted pistachios, we’ll talk about the news- how thousands of people across the country are protesting for justice among immigrants. No one protested to give my family a voice.

Our Thanksgiving food is more than just sustenance, it is a physical representation of my family ’s blended and ever-changing culture, even after 40 years in the United States. No matter how the food on our plates changes, it will always symbolize our sense of family—immediate and extended—and our unbreakable bond.

Grace Williams, a student at Kirkwood High School in Kirkwood, Missouri, enjoys playing tennis, baking, and spending time with her family. Grace also enjoys her time as a writing editor for her school’s yearbook, the Pioneer. In the future, Grace hopes to continue her travels abroad, as well as live near extended family along the sunny beaches of La Jolla, California.

Nourishing Change After Tragedy Strikes

In the Jewish community, food is paramount. We often spend our holidays gathered around a table, sharing a meal and reveling in our people’s story. On other sacred days, we fast, focusing instead on reflection, atonement, and forgiveness.

As a child, I delighted in the comfort of matzo ball soup, the sweetness of hamantaschen, and the beauty of braided challah. But as I grew older and more knowledgeable about my faith, I learned that the origins of these foods are not rooted in joy, but in sacrifice.

The matzo of matzo balls was a necessity as the Jewish people did not have time for their bread to rise as they fled slavery in Egypt. The hamantaschen was an homage to the hat of Haman, the villain of the Purim story who plotted the Jewish people’s destruction. The unbaked portion of braided challah was tithed by commandment to the kohen  or priests. Our food is an expression of our history, commemorating both our struggles and our triumphs.

As I write this, only days have passed since eleven Jews were killed at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. These people, intending only to pray and celebrate the Sabbath with their community, were murdered simply for being Jewish. This brutal event, in a temple and city much like my own, is a reminder that anti-Semitism still exists in this country. A reminder that hatred of Jews, of me, my family, and my community, is alive and flourishing in America today. The thought that a difference in religion would make some believe that others do not have the right to exist is frightening and sickening.  

 This is why, if given the chance, I would sit down the entire Jewish American community at one giant Shabbat table. I’d serve matzo ball soup, pass around loaves of challah, and do my best to offer comfort. We would take time to remember the beautiful souls lost to anti-Semitism this October and the countless others who have been victims of such hatred in the past. I would then ask that we channel all we are feeling—all the fear, confusion, and anger —into the fight.

As suggested in Korsha Wilson’s “Cooking Stirs the Pot for Social Change,” I would urge my guests to direct our passion for justice and the comfort and care provided by the food we are eating into resisting anti-Semitism and hatred of all kinds.

We must use the courage this sustenance provides to create change and honor our people’s suffering and strength. We must remind our neighbors, both Jewish and non-Jewish, that anti-Semitism is alive and well today. We must shout and scream and vote until our elected leaders take this threat to our community seriously. And, we must stand with, support, and listen to other communities that are subjected to vengeful hate today in the same way that many of these groups have supported us in the wake of this tragedy.

This terrible shooting is not the first of its kind, and if conflict and loathing are permitted to grow, I fear it will not be the last. While political change may help, the best way to target this hate is through smaller-scale actions in our own communities.

It is critical that we as a Jewish people take time to congregate and heal together, but it is equally necessary to include those outside the Jewish community to build a powerful crusade against hatred and bigotry. While convening with these individuals, we will work to end the dangerous “otherizing” that plagues our society and seek to understand that we share far more in common than we thought. As disagreements arise during our discussions, we will learn to respect and treat each other with the fairness we each desire. Together, we shall share the comfort, strength, and courage that traditional Jewish foods provide and use them to fuel our revolution. 

We are not alone in the fight despite what extremists and anti-semites might like us to believe.  So, like any Jew would do, I invite you to join me at the Shabbat table. First, we will eat. Then, we will get to work.

essay on village food

As a kid, I remember asking my friends jokingly, ”If you were stuck on a deserted island, what single item of food would you bring?” Some of my friends answered practically and said they’d bring water. Others answered comically and said they’d bring snacks like Flamin’ Hot Cheetos or a banana. However, most of my friends answered sentimentally and listed the foods that made them happy. This seems like fun and games, but what happens if the hypothetical changes? Imagine being asked, on the eve of your death, to choose the final meal you will ever eat. What food would you pick? Something practical? Comical? Sentimental?  

This situation is the reality for the 2,747 American prisoners who are currently awaiting execution on death row. The grim ritual of “last meals,” when prisoners choose their final meal before execution, can reveal a lot about these individuals and what they valued throughout their lives.

It is difficult for us to imagine someone eating steak, lobster tail, apple pie, and vanilla ice cream one moment and being killed by state-approved lethal injection the next. The prisoner can only hope that the apple pie he requested tastes as good as his mom’s. Surprisingly, many people in prison decline the option to request a special last meal. We often think of food as something that keeps us alive, so is there really any point to eating if someone knows they are going to die?

“Controlling food is a means of controlling power,” said chef Sean Sherman in the YES! Magazine article “Cooking Stirs the Pot for Social Change,” by Korsha Wilson. There are deeper stories that lie behind the final meals of individuals on death row.

I want to bring awareness to the complex and often controversial conditions of this country’s criminal justice system and change the common perception of prisoners as inhuman. To accomplish this, I would host a potluck where I would recreate the last meals of prisoners sentenced to death.

In front of each plate, there would be a place card with the prisoner’s full name, the date of execution, and the method of execution. These meals could range from a plate of fried chicken, peas with butter, apple pie, and a Dr. Pepper, reminiscent of a Sunday dinner at Grandma’s, to a single olive.

Seeing these meals up close, meals that many may eat at their own table or feed to their own kids, would force attendees to face the reality of the death penalty. It will urge my guests to look at these individuals not just as prisoners, assigned a number and a death date, but as people, capable of love and rehabilitation.  

This potluck is not only about realizing a prisoner’s humanity, but it is also about recognizing a flawed criminal justice system. Over the years, I have become skeptical of the American judicial system, especially when only seven states have judges who ethnically represent the people they serve. I was shocked when I found out that the officers who killed Michael Brown and Anthony Lamar Smith were exonerated for their actions. How could that be possible when so many teens and adults of color have spent years in prison, some even executed, for crimes they never committed?  

Lawmakers, police officers, city officials, and young constituents, along with former prisoners and their families, would be invited to my potluck to start an honest conversation about the role and application of inequality, dehumanization, and racism in the death penalty. Food served at the potluck would represent the humanity of prisoners and push people to acknowledge that many inmates are victims of a racist and corrupt judicial system.

Recognizing these injustices is only the first step towards a more equitable society. The second step would be acting on these injustices to ensure that every voice is heard, even ones separated from us by prison walls. Let’s leave that for the next potluck, where I plan to serve humble pie.

The Empty Seat

“If you aren’t sober, then I don’t want to see you on Christmas.”

Harsh words for my father to hear from his daughter but words he needed to hear. Words I needed him to understand and words he seemed to consider as he fiddled with his wine glass at the head of the table. Our guests, my grandma, and her neighbors remained resolutely silent. They were not about to defend my drunken father–or Charles as I call him–from my anger or my ultimatum.

This was the first dinner we had had together in a year. The last meal we shared ended with Charles slopping his drink all over my birthday presents and my mother explaining heroin addiction to me. So, I wasn’t surprised when Charles threw down some liquid valor before dinner in anticipation of my anger. If he wanted to be welcomed on Christmas, he needed to be sober—or he needed to be gone.

Countless dinners, holidays, and birthdays taught me that my demands for sobriety would fall on deaf ears. But not this time. Charles gave me a gift—a one of a kind, limited edition, absolutely awkward treat. One that I didn’t know how to deal with at all. Charles went home that night, smacked a bright red bow on my father, and hand-delivered him to me on Christmas morning.

He arrived for breakfast freshly showered and looking flustered. He would remember this day for once only because his daughter had scolded him into sobriety. Dad teetered between happiness and shame. Grandma distracted us from Dad’s presence by bringing the piping hot bacon and biscuits from the kitchen to the table, theatrically announcing their arrival. Although these foods were the alleged focus of the meal, the real spotlight shined on the unopened liquor cabinet in my grandma’s kitchen—the cabinet I know Charles was begging Dad to open.

I’ve isolated myself from Charles. My family has too. It means we don’t see Dad, but it’s the best way to avoid confrontation and heartache. Sometimes I find myself wondering what it would be like if we talked with him more or if he still lived nearby. Would he be less inclined to use? If all families with an addict tried to hang on to a relationship with the user, would there be fewer addicts in the world? Christmas breakfast with Dad was followed by Charles whisking him away to Colorado where pot had just been legalized. I haven’t talked to Dad since that Christmas.

As Korsha Wilson stated in her YES! Magazine article, “Cooking Stirs the Pot for Social Change,” “Sometimes what we don’t cook says more than what we do cook.” When it comes to addiction, what isn’t served is more important than what is. In quiet moments, I like to imagine a meal with my family–including Dad. He’d have a spot at the table in my little fantasy. No alcohol would push him out of his chair, the cigarettes would remain seated in his back pocket, and the stench of weed wouldn’t invade the dining room. Fruit salad and gumbo would fill the table—foods that Dad likes. We’d talk about trivial matters in life, like how school is going and what we watched last night on TV.

Dad would feel loved. We would connect. He would feel less alone. At the end of the night, he’d walk me to the door and promise to see me again soon. And I would believe him.

Bittersweet Reunion

I close my eyes and envision a dinner of my wildest dreams. I would invite all of my relatives. Not just my sister who doesn’t ask how I am anymore. Not just my nephews who I’m told are too young to understand me. No, I would gather all of my aunts, uncles, and cousins to introduce them to the me they haven’t met.

For almost two years, I’ve gone by a different name that most of my family refuses to acknowledge. My aunt, a nun of 40 years, told me at a recent birthday dinner that she’d heard of my “nickname.” I didn’t want to start a fight, so I decided not to correct her. Even the ones who’ve adjusted to my name have yet to recognize the bigger issue.

Last year on Facebook, I announced to my friends and family that I am transgender. No one in my family has talked to me about it, but they have plenty to say to my parents. I feel as if this is about my parents more than me—that they’ve made some big parenting mistake. Maybe if I invited everyone to dinner and opened up a discussion, they would voice their concerns to me instead of my parents.

I would serve two different meals of comfort food to remind my family of our good times. For my dad’s family, I would cook heavily salted breakfast food, the kind my grandpa used to enjoy. He took all of his kids to IHOP every Sunday and ordered the least healthy option he could find, usually some combination of an overcooked omelet and a loaded Classic Burger. For my mom’s family, I would buy shakes and burgers from Hardee’s. In my grandma’s final weeks, she let aluminum tins of sympathy meals pile up on her dining table while she made my uncle take her to Hardee’s every day.

In her article on cooking and activism, food writer Korsha Wilson writes, “Everyone puts down their guard over a good meal, and in that space, change is possible.” Hopefully the same will apply to my guests.

When I first thought of this idea, my mind rushed to the endless negative possibilities. My nun-aunt and my two non-nun aunts who live like nuns would whip out their Bibles before I even finished my first sentence. My very liberal, state representative cousin would say how proud she is of the guy I’m becoming, but this would trigger my aunts to accuse her of corrupting my mind. My sister, who has never spoken to me about my genderidentity, would cover her children’s ears and rush them out of the house. My Great-Depression-raised grandparents would roll over in their graves, mumbling about how kids have it easy nowadays.

After mentally mapping out every imaginable terrible outcome this dinner could have, I realized a conversation is unavoidable if I want my family to accept who I am. I long to restore the deep connection I used to have with them. Though I often think these former relationships are out of reach, I won’t know until I try to repair them. For a year and a half, I’ve relied on Facebook and my parents to relay messages about my identity, but I need to tell my own story.

At first, I thought Korsha Wilson’s idea of a cooked meal leading the way to social change was too optimistic, but now I understand that I need to think more like her. Maybe, just maybe, my family could all gather around a table, enjoy some overpriced shakes, and be as close as we were when I was a little girl.

We received many outstanding essays for the Fall 2018 Writing Competition. Though not every participant can win the contest, we’d like to share some excerpts that caught our eye.

Thinking of the main staple of the dish—potatoes, the starchy vegetable that provides sustenance for people around the globe. The onion, the layers of sorrow and joy—a base for this dish served during the holidays.  The oil, symbolic of hope and perseverance. All of these elements come together to form this delicious oval pancake permeating with possibilities. I wonder about future possibilities as I flip the latkes.

The egg is a treasure. It is a fragile heart of gold that once broken, flows over the blemishless surface of the egg white in dandelion colored streams, like ribbon unraveling from its spool.

If I were to bring one food to a potluck to create social change by addressing anti-Semitism, I would bring gefilte fish because it is different from other fish, just like the Jews are different from other people.  It looks more like a matzo ball than fish, smells extraordinarily fishy, and tastes like sweet brine with the consistency of a crab cake.

—Noah Glassman, Ethical Culture Fieldston School,  Bronx, New York

I would not only be serving them something to digest, I would serve them a one-of-a-kind taste of the past, a taste of fear that is felt in the souls of those whose home and land were taken away, a taste of ancestral power that still lives upon us, and a taste of the voices that want to be heard and that want the suffering of the Natives to end.

—Citlalic Anima Guevara, Wichita North High School, Wichita, Kansas

It’s the one thing that your parents make sure you have because they didn’t.  Food is what your mother gives you as she lies, telling you she already ate. It’s something not everybody is fortunate to have and it’s also what we throw away without hesitation.  Food is a blessing to me, but what is it to you?

—Mohamed Omar, Kirkwood High School, Kirkwood, Missouri

Filleted and fried humphead wrasse, mangrove crab with coconut milk, pounded taro, a whole roast pig, and caramelized nuts—cuisines that will not be simplified to just “food.” Because what we eat is the diligence and pride of our people—a culture that has survived and continues to thrive.

Everything was placed before me. Rolling up my sleeves I started cracking eggs, mixing flour, and sampling some chocolate chips, because you can never be too sure. Three separate bowls. All different sizes. Carefully, I tipped the smallest, and the medium-sized bowls into the biggest. Next, I plugged in my hand-held mixer and flicked on the switch. The beaters whirl to life. I lowered it into the bowl and witnessed the creation of something magnificent. Cookie dough.

250 Words Essay on Traditional Food

Introduction to traditional food.

Traditional food is an integral part of our cultural identity, encapsulating centuries of history, customs, and rituals. It forms the bedrock of our culinary heritage, providing a unique lens to appreciate our ancestors’ wisdom and creativity.

Significance of Traditional Food

Traditional foods are often nutrient-dense, prepared from locally sourced, seasonally available ingredients, thus promoting sustainability. They are typically unprocessed and free from artificial additives, which contributes to their nutritional superiority over fast or processed foods.

Traditional Food and Cultural Identity

Food traditions are intertwined with cultural identity. They are a form of non-verbal communication that conveys social norms, family values, and regional characteristics. For instance, the Japanese tea ceremony, an embodiment of Zen philosophy, showcases the nation’s respect for tranquility and simplicity.

Threats to Traditional Food

Despite their significance, traditional foods are under threat due to globalization and the rise of fast-food culture. The homogenization of diets has led to the erosion of food diversity, posing a risk to our culinary heritage.

Preserving traditional food is not merely about safeguarding recipes but about preserving our cultural identity and promoting a sustainable lifestyle. Embracing traditional food is a step towards a healthier and more sustainable future, replete with a rich tapestry of diverse culinary experiences.

500 Words Essay on Traditional Food

The essence of traditional food.

Traditional food, often viewed as a cultural artifact, is a reflection of a community’s history, environment, and values. It not only satiates one’s hunger but also connects us to our roots, providing a sense of belonging and identity. As the world turns into a global village, the significance of traditional food has become more evident than ever.

Traditional Food as Cultural Identity

Every region has its unique traditional food, shaped by local resources, climate, and historical events. These foods tell a story – a narrative of survival, adaptation, and innovation. For instance, the Japanese cuisine, known for its simplicity and respect for natural flavors, is a testament to Japan’s minimalist aesthetic and reverence for nature. Similarly, the spice-laden Indian cuisine reflects the country’s diverse cultures and the historical spice trade. These foods, hence, are more than just sustenance; they are a symbol of cultural identity.

Health Benefits of Traditional Food

Traditional foods are typically made from whole, unprocessed ingredients. They are often nutritionally balanced, containing a mix of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats necessary for human health. Furthermore, traditional diets are usually adapted to local conditions and are therefore more sustainable. For example, the Mediterranean diet, rich in fruits, vegetables, and olive oil, is associated with longevity and reduced risk of chronic diseases. It is a diet perfectly adapted to the sunny, coastal regions where these foods are easily grown.

The Role of Traditional Food in Sustainable Development

Traditional food systems can contribute significantly to sustainable development. They promote biodiversity by using a variety of local crops, thus ensuring the conservation of indigenous plant species. Traditional farming methods are often more environmentally friendly, reducing the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides. By supporting local food production and consumption, traditional food systems also help to reduce carbon emissions associated with food transportation.

Preservation and Promotion of Traditional Food

Despite the myriad benefits of traditional food, it is threatened by the homogenizing effects of globalization and the rise of fast food culture. Therefore, it is imperative to preserve and promote traditional food. This can be achieved through education, culinary tourism, and policy measures. For instance, schools can incorporate food education in their curriculum, teaching students about the cultural and nutritional significance of traditional food. Culinary tourism can help promote traditional food by showcasing it as a unique cultural experience. On the policy front, governments can provide incentives for local food production and consumption.

Traditional food is a treasure trove of cultural heritage, nutritional wisdom, and sustainable practices. Its preservation and promotion is not just about maintaining cultural diversity but also about ensuring our health and the health of our planet. As we move forward in this globalized world, let us not forget the value of our traditional food, the stories it tells, and the connections it nurtures.

Feature image of Short Essay on My Village

In origin, I’m from Bangladesh. But after the partition, my family came and settled in a remote village in Murshidabad. Presently, I stay in Kolkata with my parents, but several times I have heard my father remember his childhood days in the village.

During the vacations, I often visit the village. People are so innocent there and all of them love us so much. They care for their nature and do not harm it like the urban people. Also, they have still kept their tribal festivals intact. I love to enjoy their traditional food and this bonding between my people in the village. Whenever I visit my village, it has always been so ni experience.

Since my childhood days, I used to fantasize about spending my life in our ancestral village. Staying in a village has never been an opportunity for me because I am born and brought up in the city. We hardly get a chance to meet my ancestral people in the village of Murshidabad. The story goes back to the partition of India when my great grandparents migrated from Bangladesh and settled in Murshidabad to protect their families. At that time they were extremely poor and had a humble income to spend their days. They were followed by many others.

The village is now much more developed than it was when first inhabited. When I visit the village with my parents, during the vacation, it gets quite enjoyable to meet them after a long time. The clean air and water are beautiful with pure fruits and vegetables to eat. The reads are of red soil and soft to walk over. The humble neighbour of that village is the main reason I love my village. 

Some of our relatives still live in the village. Their primary profession is agriculture. During my visit, my cousins took me to show the agricultural fields. It was totally a mesmerizing experience. The entire horizon was green and such a peaceful life that I could never experience in the city.

Life in a village is much different from what we experience in the city. The urban lifestyle does not provide us with all views of the Earth. The world has much more greenery and beauty than it seems to us. The city definitely gives a modern life, better infrastructure, more communication, and quick connections. But it also takes away the natural goodness from us.

I find myself extremely lucky to think that I am from a village. I stay in a distant village in the suburbs of Darjeeling. The best part of living in a village is that I can stay far away from the daily crowd of the city. The city is too confusing and suffocating for me. I cannot bear staying there even for a week. I always crave the peace I get in my own village. The village called Kasaimara is extremely beautiful in its flora and fauna. The air is clean and pure like the innocent people of my village.

We do not have many modern amenities like the city. We often face problems with network and communication, we do not have good schools or hospitals. But still, the peace of nature allows us to live a long and healthy life. I love to take long walks up the hill slopes in the morning or often cycle all the way. It saves the cost of taking any gym practice and is also helpful in maintaining a healthy body and peaceful mind. 

Due to no pollution, we always have a majestic view of the mountains from our village. Around 50-50 families live in our village. For weekend and holiday picnics, all our villagers come together and celebrate with our ethnic music and dance. It is not like the mechanical life of the city. Everything we do here has a spontaneous charm and is full of life.

The environment of my village is so beautiful. The people work hard to preserve ethnic integrity. We have a rich history o folktales and myths. As a child, I often heard my grandparents tell me stories about them. They are precious and innocent like the people. They easily befriend other members, even from a different community. My village celebrates our own tribal festivals with great enjoyment and pomp. I am extremely lucky that I am a proud villager of India. We do not have many facilities, but at the end of the day, we are at peace with ourselves and others.

 I have tried to write these essays in very simple language for a better understanding of all kinds of students. If anyone still has any doubts regarding this topic, kindly let me know through some quick comments. To read more such lessons, keep browsing our website.

essay on village food

Essay: Feeding the nation, the village, or the world

Over the past decades, Colombia’s dominant agricultural vision has been that of becoming a food powerhouse: a nation that could “feed the world” . However, while Colombia’s exports of some tropical produce have increased, this expansion overseas has not led to improvements in the living conditions of the millions of people in rural areas who still experience poverty and food insecurity and malnutrition.

Agrarian movements have long sought to put forward alternative visions of the food system under the narratives of i) feeding the nation and ii) feeding the village . These alternative visions are based on a more localised approach to agriculture and food consumption that values aspects such as people’s proximity to food production, protection of local environmental resources, urban-rural links and the importance of promoting rural and urban well-being through healthy diets.

This essay explores the tensions between these alternative visions of food provisioning. It is written by Dr Felipe Roa-Clavijo, Assistant Professor at the School of Government of Universidad de Los Andes.

essay on village food

About the author: Dr Felipe Roa-Clavijo is an Assistant Professor at the School of Government of Universidad de Los Andes. In his research, he analyses the debates around food provisioning from the perspective of agrarian movements, the state, consumers and the food industry.

Introduction

Agriculture plays an important role in Colombia for both its food exports and domestic consumption. The country combines different types of agriculture and food production that include small-scale agriculture, family farming, agro-industry, and the food industry, as well as a diversity of producers from peasants to medium farmers and corporations. There are also a variety of actors involved in the process. Smallholders for example produce coffee, fruit, and vegetables for both domestic consumption and exports. Large agriculture produces sugar cane, palm oil, banana, and plantain mainly for export, and the food industry produces processed and packaged foods with both domestic and imported inputs.

Over the past decades and following the trajectories of neighbouring countries such as Brazil and Argentina, Colombia’s dominant agricultural vision has been that of becoming a food powerhouse: a nation that could “feed the world”. To this end, the country has embarked on expanding its participation in agricultural global markets via free trade agreements. This is a process that started back in the 1990s with the adoption of globalisation policies and new regulations on international trade. Following the recommendations of multilateral organisations such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, the national government cut most of the finance and support it previously offered to smallholders and also withdrew all state projects of agrarian reform and land re-distribution. As a result of these decisions, the social and economic situation of millions of smallholders and rural dwellers has stagnated.  Following these international guidelines and in a new stage of market liberalisation, Colombia signed in the last decade free trade agreements with the European Union, the United States, and economic blocs such as South America’s Pacific Alliance, among others.

As a result, while Colombia’s exports of some tropical produce have increased, this expansion overseas has not led to improvements in the living conditions of the millions of people in rural areas who still experience poverty and food insecurity and malnutrition. More than 50 percent of the national households (54%) live in food insecurity conditions, and nearly 60 percent of adults (56%) are overweight according to the latest National Food Security and Nutrition Survey (ENSIN, 2017).

People living in rural areas, those who work in and depend on agriculture as their main livelihood, experience worse conditions than their urban counterparts. Both monetary and multidimensional poverty are higher in rural areas, being 44 and 31 percent respectively compared to 37 and 10 percent in the urban areas.

Furthermore, the country is in a continuous struggle to build a more peaceful, inclusive, and prosperous society. Having signed, in 2016, a peace deal with Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC), the oldest guerrilla movement of the western hemisphere, the national government is now working on implementing the agreement. Its first chapter, the Comprehensive Rural Reform, seeks to address the structural problems of the countryside by providing access to land, implementing special programmes to support smallholder agriculture, and investing in public goods and social programmes for rural areas such as education, health, and infrastructure.

The government’s new approach also encompasses fresh thinking on food. Whilst the dominant vision has been that of “feeding the world” with an export-oriented approach to food and agriculture, agrarian movements have long sought to put forward alternative visions of the food system under the narratives of i) feeding the nation and ii) feeding the village. These alternative visions are based on a more localised approach to agriculture and food consumption that values aspects such as people’s proximity to food production, protection of local environmental resources, urban-rural links and the importance of promoting rural and urban well-being through healthy diets.

Why is it relevant to look at these tensions and particularly at alternative visions of food provisioning? Because recent socio-political and economic transformations in the country have created a space for alternative voices to be heard. Furthermore, in the context of global shocks such as the pandemic of COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine, which have disrupted food systems in various ways, many countries around the world are rethinking their dependency on the global market and are looking for ways to foster stronger and more resilient national food systems. The ongoing debates in Colombia about feeding the village, the nation or the world can provide important insights for these global concerns.

Emerging tensions and competing visions in food systems

In the following paragraphs I outline both the ‘old’ globalist vision for food production, which I call ‘feeding the world’ and the alternative visions that are now gaining more traction, ‘feeding the nation’ and ‘feeding the village’. For each of these, I explore the main actors that promote these visions and the context in which they emerged, their main pillars, and their implications for food and agriculture.

Feeding the world

Over the past decades, the dominant food system vision in Colombia has been that of seeing the country as an agricultural and food powerhouse: a highly agricultural, agro-industrial and food industry country with strong ties to international trade. The main promoters of this vision have been the national government, the agroindustry, and the food industry.

These stakeholders’ vision of the food system has two main pillars. First is the expansion and maximisation of the opportunities provided by globalisation. Actors in this alliance seek to increase international trade, both imports and exports. To this end, and in full support of this vision, previous national governments have embarked on expanding global markets by signing Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with other countries. Over the past 10 years Colombia has signed FTAs with, among others, Canada (2012), the United States (2012), the European Union (2013) and Israel (2017).    

The second pillar is a productivist approach – the goal of maximising agricultural and industrial production through a diverse set of technologies. For agroindustry actors, this implies relying on Green Revolution technologies including high-yield crop varieties, fertilisers, and pesticides. With this approach, Colombia has become in the past decades a lead producer and exporter of tropical produce, including palm oil, coffee, sugar, beef, and avocado. For the food industry this implies accessing low-cost primary agricultural products – both domestically-produced and imported – to increase the production of processed foods. The food industry in Colombia is a lead producer of pasta, cookies and canned foods at the national level, and a lead exporter of candies.   

This perspective of the food system aligns with and has received significant support from international and multilateral organisations such as the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). Back in 2015, the IDB published a report called The Next Global Breadbasket: How Latin America Can Feed the World: A Call to Action for Addressing Challenges & Developing Solutions that lays out a vision of a dynamic and export oriented agro-industry and which has been influential to policymaking in the region.

The vision of a dynamic international and domestic food market based on industrialised methods and technologies has been key in shaping Colombia’s economic strategies over the past three decades.

Feeding the village and feeding the nation

  This dominant, concentrated and consolidated view of the food system has, until recently, lead to the side-lining of other perspectives, mainly coming from poor and marginalised farmers who have different priorities, values and interests to the larger, more powerful stakeholders mentioned previously. These alternative visions see the food system’s role as being, respectively, to feed the village and to feed the nation. Promoted mainly by small and medium farmers, these visions emphasise the importance of local production and consumption, short distribution circuits, agroecology, environmental protection, and the national market. As we will see below, both visions are overlapping but have, at the same time, key differences.

Two main groups promote these alternative visions, both of which emerged nearly 10 years ago. The first is Cumbre Agraria Campesina, Étnica y Popular (Agrarian, Peasant, Ethnic and Worker´s Summit – CACEP), which is an alliance of local organisations and cooperatives, including peasant groups, indigenous and African-Colombian communities, that promotes a vision around feeding the village. Their vision is that of a localised food system – feeding the village – in which families, communities and cities are inter-connected by local food production and in which food systems use a diversity of indigenous and African-Colombian traditions and knowledge. They also emphasise the importance of protecting the environment. To this end, they promote the use of agroecological farming practices, as well as the protection of forests, soil, and water.

The second group is Dignidad Agropecuaria por Colombia (Agrarian Dignity for Colombia – DAC), which promotes a vision around feeding the nation. Its members are mainly medium-size farmers and agricultural entrepreneurs. As an umbrella movement, its main sub-groups are organised by agricultural value-chain, mainly those of dairy, potato, onion, coffee, and legumes. Their main vision is to “feed the country” by supplying these staple foods to the national market. For this reason, they adopt a nationalist agenda, and oppose food imports of all agricultural products that could be produced in Colombia. In this endeavour they have had intense discussions with the national government due to the current imports of dairy products, mainly from the European Union, and potato, mainly coming from Peru.

CACEP and DAC are aligned in certain areas but disagree in others. For example, under the discourse of food sovereignty, both groups seek to defend national agriculture and take a protectionist approach against food imports. However, whilst for DAC this protectionist approach is about having control over the domestic market, for CACEP it is about human rights and social justice. In line with and connected to social movements such as La Via Campesina, CACEP seeks social justice by advocating for land distribution, the reduction of inequality and poverty eradication for rural dwellers.

In other words, while both social movements advocate for alternative visions of the food system, the values and identity that inform their political agendas are different. DAC members consider themselves to be rural entrepreneurs. They approach agriculture from a business-oriented perspective which values aspects such as efficiency and productivity. In this same line, they promote conventional methods of agricultural production, mainly through the use of Green Revolution technologies. Because of this, another discussion that they have had with the government is about the price of agricultural inputs. Colombia is a net importer of fertilisers and pesticides and hence is subject to international price fluctuations. DAC is demanding that the government protect them against this price instability, particularly when the price sharply rises. In this endeavour, it has been successful in getting the government to respond, at least in extreme cases, to the fertiliser price spikes, by taking measures to alleviate such costs.     

In contrast, CACEP members see themselves as diverse rural communities that belong to different indigenous, African-Colombian and peasant groups. For them, agriculture is not just a business activity. Rather, it is embedded in their core identities – and provides meaning to their culture and to the territories that they inhabit. Connected with this is the fact that CACEP promotes agroecological principles in farming and the protection of the environment, particularly of soils, water and forests. To this end, they advocate for the government to design policies and support agroecological production at a national scale, an element of their agenda that up until now has not been successful.

In spite of the lack of representation in both the executive and legislative branches of the state, the main space for contestation of CACEP and DAC has been social mobilisation in the streets. In my book, The Politics of Food Provisioning in Colombia , I analyse the agrarian protests that took place in 2013 and 2014 and the agrarian negotiations that lasted until 2018 between these agrarian movements and the state. Since then, and in spite of the little progress that has been made in the negotiations of their agendas, there have been more social protests, both rural and urban, urging the national government to address the worrying inequality experienced by millions of people across the country, particularly in rural areas.

But times are changing

In August 2022, President Gustavo Petro was elected as the first left-wing president in the history of Colombia. He takes office alongside the country’s first ever African-Colombian Vice-President Francia Marquez. In line with the visions of both CACEP and DAC, they won the Presidential office on the basis of many promises, among them to eradicate hunger everywhere, to exploit the country’s full agricultural potential with a social justice perspective and to strengthen the nation’s path towards food sovereignty – a term that has been controversial and neglected in the past. Petro’s new government will give space in the political debate to discuss food sovereignty.  

The new government, in line with the visions of DAC and CACEP, is now putting forward some strategic approaches that include three main elements. First, renegotiating free trade agreements, so that the country, particularly its agricultural sector, is not at disadvantage compared to other countries. While the particular actions have not been specified at this point in time, this probably refers to providing more financial support and technical assistance to smallholders, elements that were withdrawn decades back as part of the deals’ agreements.

Second, prioritising domestic agricultural production with an emphasis on reducing grain dependency. The first announcements of the government point to the design of a programme to increase domestic wheat and corn production, since Colombia is currently highly dependent on imports from Canada and the United States.

Third, doubling the efforts to eradicate hunger through a special presidential programme that will provide humanitarian assistance to populations in need, and special support to vulnerable communities to build resilience and long-term food security.

At the core of the political transformation is the fact that some agrarian leaders who are part of the national agrarian movements mentioned above and who have been mobilising for over a decade, have now been elected as Congressmen. The leaders from both DAC and CACEP ran for Congress in the March 2022 election. These leaders, Robert Daza and Cesar Pachón, were elected with Pacto Historico – the political party of the new President – and inaugurated on 20 th July. Both of them have promised to work towards the interests and visions of their agrarian movements as Congressmen. Together, they are already working on a legislative package that includes the recognition of peasants (along the lines of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Peasants and Other People Working in Rural Areas ), agrarian reform and agroecological production.    

Where next?

It’s been only a few months since the start of the new Congress and the new government. The main changes are yet to be seen in the coming months and years. However, the fact that a new government and Congress that has alternative visions of the food system has been elected represents significant political change. The next four years will be full of intense debates about food and food systems transformations.

In this context, it will be interesting to see and analyse how dominant visions of feeding the world interplay with the new government and Congress visions of feeding the nation or the village. Will the government continue to be a strategic ally of agroindustry and food industry companies? What will be the relationship between the government and agrarian movements? Furthermore, in the context of climate change and environmental degradation, will environmental protection and practices such as agroecology, water and soil conservation feature at all in the political debates and in the practical implementation of socio-economic programmes?

One would expect that given the new political landscape, marginal visions of the food system, particularly those alternative perspectives addressed in this piece, will now take more of a centre stage. The key aspect is whether those who hold leadership positions now can translate those visions into concrete outcomes that improve living standards, produce healthy food, and help the planet.

Finally, recently elected presidents in Latin America include Gabriel Boric in Chile and Luiz Inacio Lula in Brazil, both of whom are politically aligned with Gustavo Petro. It is therefore likely that they will seek to forge alliances to strengthen both the region’s position as a global food exporter and their efforts to reduce hunger and malnutrition, which have been deteriorating in the last years.

My village essay 10 Models

My village essay, below we will introduce you to the topic of an integrated essay consisting of 150 words. And we will not forget to present an essay on the village and write an article on making the village the best consists of 300 words.

When writing this topic, we will take into account that we provide content suitable for all educational levels. There are a large number of good words and terms that you will find in this topic, and you will not feel any difficulty in reading the article or understanding its meaning, because we will write it in easy terms.

My village essay

My village is the little place where I was born and raised. And there are villages in huge numbers in all countries of the world. Each village has its own beauty that distinguishes it from the rest of the villages. Because of this beauty, the people of this village are attached to it, because they were born in it and have lived there for many years.

When you are born in a place where you spend the best days of your childhood, you are attached to it and it is not easy to forget it. In the village we get to know friends, and thus make friends and make the most beautiful memories with them.

What is meant by village?

A village is a place of small size and located in an area very far from the city. The area of ​​the villages varies from one place to another. There are villages whose area does not exceed a few meters. Their population is so small that their homes can be easily counted.

There are villages that are slightly larger in area, where they are inhabited by a larger number of residents, but despite its area, it will remain a village because it possesses the components of a village.

What are the components of a village?

The village has features or components that make it distinct from the city, including that all its residents are relatives and know each other in a remarkable way.

Everyone sits in front of their homes and hangs out under the moonlight on summer nights. They gather in the winter to talk, make fires to keep warm, and cook food for everyone.

As for the markets in the villages, they are limited and people do not go to them except on a specific day of the week, and there everyone meets and exchanges conversations.

In the village you will not feel lonely because if you are sick or do not go out of the house, you will find everyone knocking on your door to ask how you are.

And when you want to hold a party for any purpose, all the people of the village will dress elegantly and come to watch the party.

These gatherings on feasts and official occasions make the villagers very happy. Gatherings make people feel less alone, giving them a chance to play, have fun, and make beautiful memories.

Disadvantages of the village

As the village has advantages, it also has disadvantages, including that job opportunities are almost non-existent, because it depends on agriculture only and does not have any other field.

If the villagers do not turn to agriculture, they suffer from unemployment as they migrate to the city in search of new jobs.

One of the disadvantages of the village is that all the secrets are easily revealed, due to the integration of the residents with each other.

This merger makes everyone as one person and there are no boundaries between them, which makes them lose their privacy.

Another disadvantage of the village is that it does not have any shops for the residents to buy their necessities from. When the villagers need to buy normal clothes, they turn to someone who sews these clothes for them, who brings them cloth from the city. But if they want to wear luxurious clothes, they must go to the city to buy it.

As for household appliances and household utensils, you won’t find them in the village. These days the village has begun to advance, but the residents still depend on the city to buy their needs.

At the end of an article about my village, we got acquainted with the nature of the village, which is characterized by a charming atmosphere, dominated by nature and calm. But we also talked about the problem of lack of privacy for the villagers.

The most serious problem is the lack of suitable jobs for the youth of the village, but they are forced to work in agriculture or migrate to the city. Migration causes young people to leave their village and stay away from their parents, which brings them grief and loneliness.

My village paragraph

I live in a small village on the banks of the Nile. The Nile River is the longest river in the world and has a beautiful landscape. The Nile River was the reason for the rise of the Egyptian civilization, as it provided the ancient man with stability and food. So several picturesque villages were built next to the river. These villages depend on agriculture, which makes them have an attractive appearance, as they are distinguished by their green color. When you reach our village, you will find the Nile in front of us and the plants behind us, which makes you feel very comfortable.

My village is one of the villages with a small population, so all the residents of the village know each other. We go out in the evening to sit with our relatives and neighbors by the house. At night the weather is good and the view is beautiful. Silence reigns throughout the village and we hear only the cockroach and the frog. We are so used to these sounds that we can no longer live without it. When we travel away from the village we feel sad and lonely and come back very quickly.

My village essay in english 150 words

Villages are areas with a small population, and are characterized by beautiful landscapes and have no pollution because there are no cars inside or factories. As for my village, it is a village located above the mountains and highlands. The place where I live is full of rocks and wild animals. Despite the harshness of living in our village, we love it and are used to it. The work we have is herding sheep.

When I was young, my father took me with him to graze sheep on the mountaintops. My father owns a huge herd of sheep, which he takes out every day to find food for them. Amidst the rocks, sheep find their food from wild plants and herbs. When these sheep grow up, we take the wool from them and use it to make home furnishings. As for the meat of these sheep, we sell it in the city. There is a great demand for our sheep meat because of its quality and good taste.

Our Village Essay

Our village is the most beautiful village in the continent of Africa, where we have strange customs and traditions of our own. These habits are inherited from our ancestors and we have not abandoned them until today.

In the past, we used to be a small village, where we used to suffer from poverty and lack of work. But with the progress that has taken place all over the world there have been tremendous developments for our village. We got to know the whole world through the Internet, so tourists began to visit us, which significantly improved our financial condition.

The reason why tourists come to visit us, which enables us to earn foreign currency, is that we preserve an ancient form and heritage that is unmatched these days.

This form is to wear a multi-colored outfit and make a large number of braids in the hair. As for the ear, we pierce a part of it and hang several accessories in it, so that they are of different sizes.

As for the women, they make clothes and hand-made furnishings decorated in all colors. That is why tourists buy from them to decorate their homes.

Paragraph on my village

We live in a village characterized by fishing. There are a large number of fresh lakes around us, where there are large numbers of fish. The villagers make their own fishing boats and go out every day to fish.

When I was in elementary school, my father told me that if I didn’t pass school, I would go fishing with him. I loved school, so I excelled in my studies and became one of the first.

My dad needed help at work, but when he saw me sticking to school he said I’d only go out with him on vacation.

Working in the fishing profession is hard work due to the heat of the sun in the summer and the strong winds in the winter. I go out with my father on vacation to help him, but I would rather not be a fisherman like my father. After he fishes, my father goes to the city near us to sell fish. Sometimes he manages to make good money, but most of the time he can’t find fish because of the weather.

My village essay 150 words

The villages gain their fame due to their nature and are unaffected by the city. When the people of the city feel depressed because of the pollution and the noise, they go to the villages to get some rest.

There are several types of villages. Including what is characterized by agriculture and green landscapes. There are villages located on lakes and near rivers, where there are water and waterfalls. This allows visitors to swim and stroll by the water.

But my village is a bit strange because it is home to a large number of crocodiles. We have several types, including small and large. Our village became famous for these creatures, which attracted a huge number of lovers of predators.

Visitors come constantly to take a tour around the lake. You can walk near the crocodiles and take pictures. As for the danger, accidents happen all the time. But accidents happen when a tourist violates the laws of the place.

Your village essay

I used to live in a small village with my family but now we have moved to town. This village is located in a place with many monuments. The village had huge temples and a large number of ancient statues.

Because of the history of the village in which I lived, many tourists came to visit us. They were coming from all over the world.

As for working in my village, we sell local food to tourists. My mom used to make pancakes and kofta for them. They liked these foods and ordered large quantities of them.

As for my father, he owned a horse and a decorated wagon. He used them to take tourists on a guided tour of the village. The wagon worked day and night, attracting residents well. These simple jobs were providing us with a good income.

As for me, I used to talk to foreigners and learn their language from them. We learned a lot of languages ​​because of our dealings with tourists. I miss my village, we left it and went to town to finish our studies.

Making my village better essay

I hope to make my village better than it is today. The way to improve the conditions of my village is to take care of its infrastructure, such as electricity and sewage networks. We will not forget the importance of clean drinking water, which protects the villagers from the risk of pollution and kidney disease.

When the infrastructure is improved, the health of the population will improve, and the village will advance and become more like a city.

There must be job opportunities within the village, including the establishment of suitable projects for young people to work in. When projects are opened in the villages, they must fit the capabilities of the village, such as projects for raising different birds and animals. The most important of these animals are cows that produce meat and milk. One of the most important birds is the chicken, which produces meat and eggs. It is possible to build factories for processing and packing different types of vegetables.

My village essay in english for class 9

Each village has something that distinguishes it from other villages. As for the village to which I belong, there are large areas of land that have been planted with flowers.

When I was born I found flowers everywhere. We grow all types and colors. This soil that surrounds our village has a great potential for flower cultivation.

Everyone works in the fields and everyone has a role in taking care of the crop, and when it is ripe we start the harvest season.

The harvest season is the official feast of our village, when the villagers gather throughout the day and we share food and drink. A competition must be held on this day to choose the best crop.

Cultivation of flowers differs from one person to another, which is why some farmers are able to produce a crop that meets international standards, to be sold for a large sum of money.

As for the crop, we sell it to merchants, who transport it carefully and deliver it to the consumer in all countries of the world.

Write an essay on my village

Indian Cuisine: Personal Experiences Essay

Indian cuisine.

Like in any well-defined culture, food is an important aspect of the Indian way of life. Food is an important part of the Indian social fabric and families take pride in serving the best Indian cuisine and sharing it with their friends and kinsmen. The Indian cuisine has a wide variety of dishes and it is distinctly known for its reliance on spices. Nevertheless, Indian food encompasses diversity that comes from the vastness of its geographical origins. Furthermore, Indian food is influenced by climatic conditions of various areas, ethnicity, religion, culture, and economic class (Srinivas, 2011). Vegetarianism is a vital component of Indian food. This paper is an evaluation of the Indian culture through its cuisine.

The significance of food within the Indian culture dates back to about 7000 BC. However, by around this time most of the foods that make up the modern Indian cuisine were non-existent. Spices and most of the other condiments that characterize Indian food today were introduced to Indians at around 3000 BC. Some of the spices that became part of Indian food in 3000 BC such as pepper, mustard, and turmeric are still in existence today. Other types of food that have become staples in Indian cuisine were introduced to Indians through cultural interactions. For instance, foods such as potatoes, chilies, and tomatoes were introduced to India by immigrants but these items later became key components of Indian cuisine.

A typical traditional Indian meal is composed of about two or three main meals that are accompanied by several side dishes. Indian foods are often classified in accordance with their region of origin. Differences in Indian food are characterized by their areas of popularity namely eastern, western, northern, or southern. The most important components of Indian food are rice, flour, spices, and pulses. The most common spices in India are of the curry variety and they are often put in vegetables and other dishes.

Food in the Indian culture has a spiritual significance because it is understood to be a key component of all lives. For instance, the ancient texts of Rigveda contain a hymn that praises food and refers to it as the ‘Lord of all creatures’. Furthermore, “it is stated in the Prasna Upanishad that God created food and all the individuals, vigor, rituals and activities depend on it” (Narayan, 2005, p. 65). Within the Indian culture, breakfast is an important meal that mainly consists of a tea or coffee beverage. Dinner is the most ‘ceremonial’ meal of the day whereas families engage in social talks. It is common for Indians to engage in dietary restrictions in accordance with religious values. Most people eat Indian food when they are seated in the floor or on low-lying seats.

My research of Indian food revealed various cultural aspects about India that were hitherto unknown to me. One of the facts that appeared interesting to me was the age of most Indian cuisines. Through my research of Indian food, I discovered that some of the main foods that make up the Indian cuisine have been in existence for thousands of years. This ‘antiquity’ is quite uncommon among western cultures where most cuisines are almost ‘fads’ (Kittler & Nelms, 2011). For example, in my country the suitability of any cuisine depends on how ‘fashionable’ it is. It was also interesting to learn that ‘Indian food’ is not a term that applies to all the food that is found within the ‘sub-continent’ of India. I learnt that there are regional variations within Indian food in accordance with their area of origin.

Popular media such as the television show ‘Big Bang Theory’ often puts Indian food in competition with other foods such as Chinese and Italian cuisine whereas food from India always comes off as being inferior. My research into Indian food included eating Indian food for the first time. My experience with Indian cuisine showed me that people who consume it tend to overstate the effect that spices have on their digestive system. On the other hand, I found some of the breads that were served as part of Indian food to be quite tasty. After enquiring about what else was offered as part of Indian cuisine, the server informed me about sweets and other confectionaries that are popular in India.

Consequently, I became aware of the ‘fun’ side of the Indian culture where confectionaries are enjoyed by both adults and children. The manner in which Indian food is served is also a strong indicator of the importance of hosting within this culture. Food is presented with outmost care and as a precious commodity. For instance, even food stands that serve Indian food do not necessarily offer ‘rushed’ service to their customers. Nevertheless, my most important experience with Indian food was learning that it is strongly tied to the people of Indian ethnicity. This fact was realized because eighty percent of the people in the Indian restaurant that I visited including customers and servers had authentic connections to Indian culture. I also realized that there is a general lack of capitalist intentions surrounding Indian food as there are with other cultures and their foods such as Chinese, Mexican, and Italian cuisines.

Continue reading this article for the best essay on My Village.

What is a Village?

A village is a small community or settlement typically located in rural areas, characterized by its close-knit social structure, traditional way of life, and intimate connection with nature. Serving as the foundational unit of rural society, villages are often comprised of clusters of houses, farmland, and communal spaces, such as markets or gathering areas. At the heart of every village lies its people, who share a sense of belonging and mutual dependence. Residents of a village often know each other personally, fostering strong bonds of friendship, kinship, and cooperation. This close social network forms the backbone of village life, providing support during times of celebration, hardship, and everything in between.

Economically, villages are often agrarian, relying heavily on farming, livestock rearing, and other traditional occupations for sustenance and livelihood. Agriculture plays a central role in village economies, with farmers cultivating crops and tending to livestock to meet the community’s needs and generate income. Additionally, cottage industries and small-scale businesses may thrive within the village, providing supplementary sources of employment and commerce.

Culturally, villages are rich repositories of tradition, folklore, and heritage, with customs and rituals passed down through generations. These cultural practices form an integral part of village identity, shaping everyday life, festivals, and ceremonies. Village festivals and fairs serve as occasions for communal celebration and expression, showcasing local art, music, dance, and cuisine.

Environmentally, villages often enjoy a symbiotic relationship with the natural world, as agriculture and traditional practices are closely attuned to seasonal cycles and ecological rhythms. Villages are frequently nestled amidst scenic landscapes, surrounded by lush fields, forests, rivers, and mountains, which provide sustenance, natural resources, and recreational opportunities.

500 Word Essay on My Village

My village is a picturesque heaven, with colourful flowers blooming along the pathways, birds chirping in the trees, and clear streams gurgling through the meadows. The air is fresh and sweet, carrying the scent of wildflowers and earth after a gentle rain. The sky above is a vast canvas of blue, dotted with fluffy white clouds that drift lazily in the breeze. Everywhere I look, nature’s beauty surrounds me, filling my heart with joy and wonder.

One of the most enchanting features of my village is its sense of history and tradition. Ancient stone houses with sloping roofs line the cobblestone streets, their walls whispering tales of generations past. The village square is a bustling hub of activity, where villagers gather for festivals, markets, and celebrations. The church steeple stands tall against the sky, its bells ringing out melodies that mark the passage of time and special occasions in our community.

What truly sets my village apart is its strong sense of community and togetherness. Neighbours know each other by name and greet each other with warm smiles and friendly waves. During harvest season, everyone comes together to work the fields, share meals, and celebrate the bounty of our labour. Whether it’s helping a neighbour mend a fence, sharing vegetables from our gardens, or organizing games for all to enjoy, the spirit of unity and support shines brightly in our village.

As I explore the nooks and crannies of my village, I am greeted by scenes straight out of a storybook. Children play in the streets with handmade toys crafted from nature’s treasures – sticks, stones, and leaves – their laughter echoing through the air. Elderly residents sit on benches outside their homes, sharing stories and wisdom passed down through generations. The local market buzzes with activity as vendors sell fresh produce, colorful crafts, and homemade treats that showcase our rich cultural heritage.

Despite its idyllic charm, my village faces challenges that require our attention and care. Economic changes, environmental issues, and shifting populations pose threats to our traditional way of life. Young people are drawn to cities in search of better opportunities, leaving behind aging populations and dwindling resources in rural areas. Balancing progress with preservation is a delicate dance that calls for creativity and cooperation from all villagers.

In conclusion, my village is a treasure trove of beauty, history, community spirit, and challenges that shape who we are as a close-knit community. Its natural wonders, rich traditions, strong bonds among residents, and obstacles faced reflect the joys and complexities of rural life. As a Class 5 student growing up in this enchanting village, I am grateful for the lessons it teaches me about nature’s wonders, friendship’s value, history’s importance, and unity’s strength. My village will always hold a special place in my heart as a place of wonderment and belonging that fills my days with joy and discovery.

Village Life Essay

Village life is known to be calm and pure as people are closer to the nature in villages; however, it also has its own set of challenges. Though, the people living in village areas lead a peaceful life they are devoid of many modern amenities that make life comfortable. Traditional village life is devoid of the comforts that a city life offers.

Though, today almost every village is well connected with roads; transportation is still scarce and if present, is of poor quality. Light and water might not be an issue for modern village, but they lack behind the cities on availability of other civic amenities. Villages have poor drainage system and no waste disposal mechanism at all, making the residents more prone to diseases and infections. On top of that, poor health care facilities add to the villager’s woes.

Short Essay on Village Life – Essay 1 (200 words)

People living in the villages mostly indulge in agricultural activities and stay away from the hustle and bustle of the chaotic city life. They lead a simple life. A day in the life of a villager starts early morning. People usually wake up around 5 am and start with their daily chores. Since most of the people in the villages sleep on their roofs they are woken up as the day light breaks. They may even be woken up by the crowing of rooster.

In most of the villages, it is the male members who go out to work while the females sit at home and complete the household tasks such as cleaning and cooking. Children get ready and head to the schools located nearby. The male members are mostly involved in farming and other agricultural activities. They either have their own farms or work for the landlords who hire them. Cycles are the most common means to travel from home to work. This is the reason why the pollution level in the villages is far low compared to the cities.

Farmers toil hard in the farms. Many of them go home for lunch others have their lunch in the shade of a tree. All in all, life in a village is slow yet peaceful.

Essay on Village Life: Pros and Cons – Essay 2 (300 words)

Introduction

Villages are known for their beautiful natural surroundings. They remain unperturbed even today when there is so much of chaos and competition around. People in villages lead a simple life and are content with whatever little they have. However, while the village life offers numerous advantages, it also has its set of disadvantages.

Pros of Village Life

Here is a look at the pros of village life:

  • Peaceful Surroundings

Villages offer a peaceful environment. Unlike the cities, people in villages don’t seem to be participating in the mad race to reach the top. They are satisfied with what they have and lead a peaceful life.

  • Less Pollution

People in the villages prefer walking down to the market, schools and other places or commute via cycle. There is hardly any car or motorcycle in the villages. Besides, there is no industrial pollution in the villages as farming is the main occupation there. This is the reason why these are less polluted.

  • Socializing

People in villages are very social. They value and respect each other. They visit one another quite often and celebrate all the occasions together. This is good for the growth and development of the children as well as a plus for the elderly people who are often isolated in the cities.

Cons of Village Life

Here are the cons of village life:

  • Lack of Amenities

The infrastructure of villages is quite poor. Many villages lack even the basic amenities such as electricity, sanitation facility, medical facilities and means of transport.

Lack of Education

Many villages do not have any schools or encompass only primary schools. People hesitate sending their children to towns and cities to seek education and hence most people in villages remain uneducated.

  • Gender Inequality

There is a lot of gender inequality in the villages. Women are mostly confined to the household chores and are not allowed to express their opinion on any matter.

Thus, village life has both pros and cons. The government must take initiative to develop the villages a bit so that life there can become more comfortable.

Essay on Village Life and City life – Essay 3 (400 words)

Village life is calm and peaceful while city life is fast paced. There are many other differences between village life and city life. There are pros and cons attached to both village life and city life. Here is a closer look at what each of these has to offer.

Village Life

Village life is quite slow but peaceful. Villagers lead a simple life. They live in harmony with each other. They value relationships and make efforts to maintain the same. They are well aware about the people living in their neighborhood and stand by them in their hour of need.

Villagers also give special importance to their customs and traditions and follow them religiously. The festivals in villages are celebrated collectively and thus the joy and happiness during that time doubles up.

People in villages are mostly involved in agricultural activities. Some of them are artisans and are involved in preparing various kinds of beautiful handicraft items.

Villagers may not be equipped with modern day technologies and gadgets but they have their own ways of enjoying life.

Many of the villages around the world are devoid of the basic amenities such as electricity, sanitation facilities, hospitals, schools, etc. Villagers face numerous challenges owing to the lack of these amenities. Most of the villagers do not give much importance to education. They are content with the basic education they acquire in the village schools.

City life is quite fast and competitive. People living in the cities get all the modern day facilities that are required to lead a comfortable life. However, they need to toil hard to earn a good living.

People in the cities are involved in various kinds of jobs. There are different kinds of businesses and jobs available for people with different educational qualifications and skills. The work opportunities in cities are far greater compared to villages.

The infrastructure of cities is good. Cities encompass good schools, colleges and medical facilities. People living in the cities give much importance to education and ensure their children seek higher education.

However, people in the city are not as cordial as those living in the villages. People here are so busy with their own life that they do not matter much about those around them. This is the reason why many people living here enjoy high stand of living but do not lead a satisfying life. The stress level of people in the cities is high.

While the village life is considered stress-free compared to the city life, it has its set of disadvantages. Many villagers these days are shifting to cities to seek better jobs and raise their standard of living.

Essay on Village Life in India – Essay 4 (500 words)

Indian villages are beautiful and serene. Majority of the Indian population resides in villages. The villagers lead a peaceful life amid greenery away from the mad rush of the cities. The needs of the villagers are less so they are satisfied with whatever little they have. While the villagers in India enjoy a pollution free environment and are closer to nature however they do face certain challenges.

Simple Living

There are thousands of villages in India. Every state in India encompasses hundreds of villages. The culture and traditions followed in Indian villages differs from state to state. The way the villagers dress up and the kind of things they eat is different in different regions. However, their way of living is largely the same. The villagers in India lead a simple life. They are hard working and enjoy the simplicities of life.

The roles of men and women in the Indian villages are well defined. The women in the villages stay at home and take care of the household chores. They cook, clean and may even be involved in sewing and knitting. The male members of the house go out to earn their livelihood. They are mostly involved in agricultural activities. Some of them also indulge in creating handicraft items. The day in the life of a villager begins early and ends early too. They wind up their tasks by evening and go to bed early.

Lack of Basic Amenities

Though the life of villagers in India is largely good however it can be challenging as many villages in the country lack basic amenities. Many villages in India do not have electricity. Even those that have power supply experience long power cuts leading to a lot of inconvenience. The villagers in India also face sanitation problem. Houses in many villages in India do not have washrooms thus it gets extremely difficult especially for the women.

Many villages do not have hospitals and nursing homes. Even those that have hospitals do not have good nursing staff.

Our villages would become more beautiful if such basic amenities are made available here.

Not much importance is given to education in the villages. Though slowly and steadily schools are being opened in villages, many villagers do not send their children to study. They particularly do not feel the need to educate the girl child as they believe she needs to do the household chores as she grows up and thus there is no need for her to go to the school. This is a sad situation and this mindset must be changed.

Even most of those who get the right to education only acquire primary or secondary education as most of the villages do not have higher secondary schools. In order to seek a graduation or post graduation degree, the children need to relocate to a big city. Most of the villagers hesitate sending their children to the cities for the fear of losing or distancing them.

Life in Indian villages is largely good. People lead a simple life and are there for each other in sickness and health. However, our villages lack basic amenities and living without these can be quite challenging.

Long Essay on Village Life: Problems and Solutions – Essay 5 (600 words)

Villages may appear green, serene and pollution free however life in these places can be quite challenging. There has been a lot of technological advancement in the last few decades. We are enjoying a comfortable life in the cities and have access to everything that makes our life convenient. However, the villagers don’t enjoy such comfort and convenience due to lack of the modern facilities.

Problems of Villages

Here is a look at the problems of villages:

  • Poor Infrastructure

The infrastructure in villages is not good. The roads and bridges are not built properly and this hampers their connectivity with towns and cities which is a hindrance in establishing good business. Schools and hospitals in the villages lack good staff as well as facilities. Many villages do not have power supply or face a lot of power cuts. Communicating with people living in other areas can also get quite difficult for the villagers due to poor telecom infrastructure in these areas.

Sanitation is another grave problem in villages.

  • No Importance to Education

Many villages do not have schools. Thus, people in villages do not get a chance to seek education. Even those villages that do have schools do not see much attendance as people in villages do not understand the importance of education. They engage their children in household activities or farming just to have helping hands.

  • Patriarchal Structure

In villages, men are considered to be the head of the family and the women in the house must follow their instructions. All the decisions are taken by the male members of the family. Women are mostly confined only to the kitchen and other household chores. They are not allowed to go out and work. They cannot even express their feelings or opinions about anything. The cases of female foeticide in the Indian villages are also quite high.

  • Solutions to the Problems

Here are the solutions to the problems faced by the people living in villages:

  • Education should be Made Compulsory

The government must make education compulsory for everyone. Good schools should be opened in villages and the government should ensure that no child in any village remains uneducated.

  • Adult Education

Adult education should also be promoted. Night schools must be opened for this purpose and adults must be encouraged to seek education. This is of utmost importance as only when the adults are educated they would understand the importance of education and educate their children.

  • Roads must be Built

Roads and bridges should be built so that there is proper connectivity between the villages and cities. This will encourage the farmers and artisans to expand their business and make healthcare facilities easily approachable to villagers.

  • Power Supply a Must

In today’s times, it is impossible to grow and develop a region if there is no power supply or constant power cuts. This is one of the most basic things needed to progress in any field. Thus, government must ensure that people in villages are not devoid of it.

  • Sanitation Facility

In order to maintain proper hygiene and good health, it is essential to have good sanitation facility. The government must promote the need to have good sanitation facility and must also ensure each village has it.

  • Better Healthcare Facilities

There is a dire need to provide good healthcare facilities in every region. The government must ensure that every village is equipped with good hospitals and well educated and experienced healthcare staff.

There are a number of serious problems being faced by the villagers. People in the villages are devoid of various facilities which are a hindrance in their development. The government must make efforts to facilitate the villages with modern facilities so that the people living in those areas can also enjoy a clean and comfortable life.

Village life is the best place to get a relationship between nature and the earth. A village is a place in which we can see a natural area.

The town is a lot of buildings and many factories. In the city, there is very less possible to provide a connection between natures. It can be combined but will be in the form of damage to nature, which is the biggest problem for the environment . Now we see that metropolis people are also trying to regenerate nature. This is by planting trees in the background and the surroundings.

Many people think it is impossible to live in underdeveloped rural areas or village life, while modern city life can provide a person with almost anything imaginable. However, such an active and vibrant lifestyle is not for everyone. Many people do not strive for crazy success and luxury and want their lives to be simple and bright.

The village is an ideal place to live if you are looking for harmony with nature. People have everything for a minimum life requirement. Villagers are simple satisfying with their life needs, and they always stock with fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, water, and clean air.

Written contracts are less important than the word of honor. Crimes in the rural community are rare. Because there is a little secret, stolen goods cannot be used and are difficult to remove.

Essay on Life in an Indian Village

The villages are the souls of our country, and more than 60% of the population lives in villages. There are more villages and small towns in India than in metropolitan areas. Census 2011 reports the number of villages in our country is 6,49,481. In this essay on Life in an Indian Village, we will further explore the life one leads in a village and how it is different from city life and the advantages and disadvantages of the same.

Short Essay on Life in an Indian Village

The villages of India are major contributors to agriculture, thus making India an agricultural land. Life in an Indian village is called rural life and city life is considered urban life. Life in an Indian village for students and children is different from those growing up in urban households. The children are often led to their family occupation of agriculture and work as farmers. Farmers are the most undervalued people in our society. They work doubly hard to supply food on our plates and don't even get paid half of what they deserve. They work without any modern machines, for long days starting even before sunrise and end their days long after dusk. They toil in the scorching heat and in the rain. The most difficult aspect of a farmer's life is mostly dependent on climatic conditions. Also, one of the other ways of earning a living in the villages is by housing cattle like cows, sheep, goats, and poultry.

People's attraction to rural life

The agricultural lands and open fields and rustic lifestyle makes the villages more scenic and peaceful. People living in metropolitan areas often go on holidays to such scenic countryside locations where they can breathe fresh air due to its unpolluted environment. The village life is slower and not steadfast, unlike the city life, this is one of the main reasons for millennials now who when on holiday from work prefer this kind of lifestyle for a short period of time and take such breaks. On the other hand, organic food has now gained much popularity and this also encourages others to adapt to the countryside way of living where one eats more nutritious food and lives a healthier lifestyle.

Long Essay on Life in an Indian Village

Life in an Indian Village for Students and Children

There are other aspects of living in an Indian village where one has to deal with scarcity on a regular basis. Scarcity, be it lack of electricity, good connecting roadways, transportation; homes built with mud or clay which can be unreliable, along with lack of proper healthcare facilities. Life in an Indian Village for Students and Children is especially hard as along with the aforementioned problems, they are also deprived of basic education, due to which they lack career opportunities.

In some parts of India, there is only one primary school that children from the nearby villages attend. Even gaining primary education is very difficult because the parents are not very keen to send their children, especially girls and want them to join them in their family's line of occupation to earn some extra money for their livelihood and girls are held back from attending school as they are required to support their mothers in household chores.

The importance of primary and secondary education should be spread in villages, highlighting the fact that it creates several career opportunities for both boys and girls. There is not much growth in the agricultural sector as well due to lack of education and training in modern ways to enhance the agricultural produce.

Cultural & Traditional Values

Unlike the cities, the villagers don't live their lives secluded; they enjoy getting together, living like a close-knit family, and helping each other in adversities. This sense of community and belonging is greatly valued. Even with so many problems, life in an Indian village is one to look forward to, as the Indian culture is very much intact and the celebrations are huge. When all as a community celebrate together, with folk music, dance, and songs, all festivals are celebrated with a lot of zeal, especially the harvest season. India should take pride in such rich culture and traditions.

In Life in Indian Village Essay, it is also important to explore the advantages and disadvantages of leading such a life.

Advantages of Life in an Indian Village

One experiences a stress-free life surrounded by beautiful nature and leads a happy life in the Indian villages.

The air is pure and fresh due to low levels of pollution and no release of harmful gases as their mode of transport is usually a bicycle or a bullock cart.

Life in an Indian Village is a healthy one as one is always doing some chore which keeps one fit and the seasonal fruits and vegetables grown naturally in the villages keep one energized.

Disadvantages of Life in an Indian village

Lack of good infrastructure, lack of schools and well-trained and experienced teaching staff hinder the progress of the few children who attend the school.

It is very difficult to break old customs and traditions and change the mindset of the elders of the family, who are usually the decision-makers and their rigid attitude makes it harder for newer generations of children.

The villages are in dire need of basic amenities like hygienic sanitation facilities, electricity, etc.

Many such issues can be resolved when the government, along with citizens, take accountability and encourage education, especially in agriculture and farming, as it is the main occupation in villages and in ways to incorporate modern technology with traditional tools. With the help of many government programs that can primarily focus on the building of schools and hospitals, education could help them earn a living which will eventually lead to a reduction in the poverty rate and increase productivity, thus increasing the GDP of our country.

In today's world, most of the people from villages leave their homes and move to cities to either study or earn a living. But the fact is life in the village area is actually enjoyable and more peaceful than in any other metropolitan city. Villages have a natural beauty to them, and they are simple, calm yet beautiful. The people living in the villages mostly go to the fields to earn their daily living, they are generally hardworking and their day starts very early than most other people living in the cities or town. They work hard in the field the whole day and just get some rest when it is dawn.

The one most relaxed thing about villages is that they are free from the heavy traffic of city life. Villages are found to be more peaceful, calm, quiet, and full of greenery, where one can always breathe fresh air and stay healthy without any pollution problems. Most of the handcraft labor people are from villages such as farmers, other works as potters, carpenters, blacksmiths, etc. The Bulls are used for farming and other activity in the field and, are also considered as their sacred god since they are the ones who help in ploughing the field, cultivating crops, and earning money for them.

He puts in a lot of manual labour and is persistent in his task.

Villagers lead fairly straight-forward lives. Most villages are located away from the bustle of urban culture. Because a village is surrounded by trees, flowers, mountains, streams, and farmlands, it is possible to appreciate the beauty of nature there.

My village is a small town with only 500 residents. My village is a short distance from Ghazipur, where I currently reside. I return to my village once a year for my Dussehra break. During this time, my dad and I visit our ancestral home, where Durga Puja is annually celebrated. Large trees line either side of the road that leads to the settlement, and they are so vibrantly alive that it seems as though they are dancing with joy to welcome us to their hamlet. I've never witnessed a scene that stunning. At the village's entrance, there is a temple where frequent prayers, rituals, and other acts of worship are performed. A sizable pond is located close to the temple, and it is encircled by mango, champak, and peepal trees. All of the people are drawn in by the aroma of the flowers and mango blossoms. My ancestors lived behind the peepal tree.

School | My village has a primary school where the local children attend classes with great enthusiasm. I enjoy observing them while classes are in session, but the school is currently closed in observance of Durga Utsav.

Medical Centre | A doctor and a nurse work in a modest dispensary. Simple ailments like fever and stomach ache can be treated by them. People must travel to the nearby town for complex illnesses and medications.

Grocery Store | The essentials for sustaining oneself are accessible in a tiny food store. In addition to the food store, there is a tea shop with some munchies. Even during other times of the day, the tea stall is never empty and serves as the main gathering place for the entire town in the evening. There are always plenty of people there conversing, drinking tea, and sharing the latest news.

A tiny rivulet is my favorite location. There are acres of grasslands and hills beyond the rivulet, which is why I love visiting and spending time there. It will make the ideal image for a painter to create. Everyone bathes and swims in the river, both young and old. The locals' primary line of work is farming. My village's tranquil atmosphere always makes me feel really happy whenever I visit. Here, I may eat some organic fruits and veggies that are fresh. My village's residents are kind and cooperative, and they don't have any resentments. They behave as if they are one big family that always looks out for one another. This act of kindness is uncommon to find in the metropolis.

My village is a modest home for contented folks. They coexist peacefully and in harmony here. The villagers must have a reliable source of upliftment because they work so hard. For example, schools and clinics in the village should be kept up and expanded. Farmers should be assisted by giving them financial support, educating them about contemporary agricultural methods, and providing them with information about the true market value of their crops. I would thus ask the government to step up and improve the village's farming, educational, and medical infrastructure.

This study illustrates the spatio-temporal dynamics of urban growth and land use changes in Samara city, Russia from 1975 to 2015. Landsat satellite imageries of five different time periods from 1975 to 2015 were acquired and quantify the changes with the help of ArcGIS 10.1 Software. By applying classification methods to the satellite images four main types of land use were extracted: water, built-up, forest and grassland. Then, the area coverage for all the land use types at different points in time were measured and coupled with population data. The results demonstrate that, over the entire study period, population was increased from 1146 thousand people to 1244 thousand from 1975 to 1990 but later on first reduce and then increase again, now 1173 thousand population. Builtup area is also change according to population. The present study revealed an increase in built-up by 37.01% from 1975 to 1995, than reduce -88.83% till 2005 and an increase by 39.16% from 2005 to 2015, along w...

Land use/Cover Change in Russia within the context of global challenges. The paper presents the results of a research project on Land Use/Cover Change (LUCC) in Russia in relations with global problems (climate change, environment and biodiversity degradation). The research was carried out at the Faculty of Geography, Moscow State University on the basis of the combination of remote sensing and in-field data of different spatial and temporal resolution. The original methodology of present-day landscape interpretation for land cover change study has been used. In Russia the major driver of land use/land cover change is agriculture. About twenty years ago the reforms of Russian agriculture were started. Agricultural lands in many regions were dramatically impacted by changed management practices, resulted in accelerated erosion and reduced biodiversity. Between the natural factors that shape agriculture in Russia, climate is the most important one. The study of long-term and short-ter...

Annals of The Association of American Geographers

Land use and land cover change is a complex process, driven by both natural and anthropogenic transformations (Fig. 1). In Russia, the major driver of land use / land cover change is agriculture. It has taken centuries of farming to create the existing spatial distribution of agricultural lands. Modernization of Russian agriculture started fifteen years ago. It has brought little change in land cover, except in the regions with marginal agriculture, where many fields were abandoned. However, in some regions, agricultural lands were dramatically impacted by changed management practices, resulting in accelerating erosion and reduced biodiversity. In other regions, federal support and private investments in the agricultural sector, especially those made by major oil and financial companies, has resulted in a certain land recovery. Between the natural factors that shape the agriculture in Russia, climate is the most important one. In the North European and most of the Asian part of the ...

In recent decades, Russia has experienced substantial transformations in agricultural land tenure. Post-Soviet reforms have shaped land distribution patterns but the impacts of these on agricultural use of land remain under-investigated. On a regional scale, there is still a knowledge gap in terms of knowing to what extent the variations in the compositions of agricultural land funds may be explained by changes in the acreage of other land categories. Using a case analysis of 82 of Russia’s territories from 2010 to 2018, the authors attempted to study the structural variations by picturing the compositions of regional land funds and mapping agricultural land distributions based on ranking “land activity”. Correlation analysis of centered log-ratio transformed compositional data revealed that in agriculture-oriented regions, the proportion of cropland was depressed by agriculture-to-urban and agriculture-to-industry land loss. In urbanized territories, the compositions of agricultura...

Despite harsh climate, agriculture on the northern margins of Russia still remains the backbone of food security. Historically, in both regions studied in this article – the Republic of Karelia and the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) – agricultural activities as dairy farming and even cropping were well adapted to local conditions including traditional activities such as horse breeding typical for Yakutia. Using three different sources of information – official statistics, expert interviews, and field observations – allowed us to draw a conclusion that there are both similarities and differences in agricultural development and land use of these two studied regions. The differences arise from agro-climate conditions, settlement history, specialization, and spatial pattern of economy. In both regions, farming is concentrated within the areas with most suitable natural conditions. Yet, even there, agricultural land use is shrinking, especially in Karelia. Both regions are prone to being af...

Essay on Healthy Food in 300 Words

‘Food is a source of energy for every living being. Even plants require food in the form of sunlight, water, and minerals from the soil. As humans, we all want to eat our favorite and most delicious food, which is mostly unhealthy. Healthy food, on the other hand, is not preferred by all, as some people don’t consider it tasty. Healthy food is known for its rich fiber and protein content. There are several benefits of eating healthy food, which are very important for our growth, body functioning and to live a sustained life.’

‘A healthy diet is generally a balanced diet of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and vitamins. Proteins and fats are required for energy, carbohydrates support our bodily functions and physical activity, and vitamins and minerals help boost the immune system, and support normal growth and development.’

‘India is one of the largest producers of healthy foods. In India, the Northern Plains, the Central Highlands, and the coastal areas are known for their rich production of healthy and nutritious food. Uttar Pradesh is the leading producer of sugarcane and wheat, West Bengal of rice, Karnataka for coffee, and Rajasthan of millet. We are surrounded by so many natural and healthy food resources, which can help lead a healthy and sustained life.’

‘Healthy food helps maintain a good body weight. It’s all about balancing what we eat and drink with the energy we burn. Sure, filling our plates with good food is important, but watching how much we take helps too.’

‘Eating healthy food is not just advice to live a healthy life. It’s a way of life that we all must adhere to. Adding fruits, vegetables, and dairy products to our diets will help us maintain good body weight, boost our immune system, and enhance our cells and body functioning.’

This is a picturesque place, we had a meeting with our Chinese colleagues. In spite of the fact, that it was a business meeting, we had a nice informal conversation and our friends felt comfortable in their zone of comfort – Chinese environment. This is... first of all portraits of Mao and details of décor – everything is created according to Chinese culture! More

Many thanks for your feedback. We are really happy that your visiting of our restaurant was great! Will wait to see you again, thank you!

Not the best Chinese place in Moscow. Nothing bad and nothing good, thats why the mark is average. Accept cash only, which is in my opinion is kinda ancient. Service was ok, personnel also fine. More

Dear Anatoly S, Thank you for your feedback and for your opinion. We are located not in Moscow, but in Moscow region. We are glad you enjoyed our service. We hope to see you again, and we hope you'll change your opinion to the best!... More

Good chinese restaurant in this location , but the taste of meal could be better. Not authentic chinese food, More

Dear Egor, thank you very much for your attention! We are very pleased to receive your reply. We cook not authentic chinese food, but it's more adapted version. But if you would love to order an authentic version, please, feel free to ask your waiter... More

Giant grocery store in West Baltimore shutting down, turning Edmondson Village into a food desert

By Dennis Valera

Updated on: May 17, 2024 / 7:03 AM EDT / CBS Baltimore

BALTIMORE -- Neighbors in one west Baltimore neighborhood are figuring out what to do for groceries, due to the Giant Food location in Edmondson Village closing next month.

The company announced the closure Tuesday. It's the neighborhood's only full service grocery store, so it's closure has left shoppers surprised.

Darlen Jackson lives so close to the Giant on 4624 Edmondson Ave. that she can walk there with ease.

"In the wintertime, on bad days, I can walk up here and back," Jackson said. "This is the only place I get my medicine from."

Even other shoppers who are able to drive expressed concern about the impact, with no other major grocery store within a mile of Edmondson Village.

"This is the only Giant I can walk to. There is another one, but it's about a couple miles down the road on Route 40. There will be people who miss this location," said Iheon Wuka.

WJZ asked Giant why this specific location is closing, but the company didn't provide a clear answer.

In a news release, the company noted the store's June 13 closure is happening a week after the location at 4622 Wilkens Ave. is reopening. With that location around two miles south of the Edmondson Avenue location, Giant is hoping shoppers head over there.

"We believe the expansion and enhanced amenities at our newly remodeled Wilkens Avenue store offers a fantastic replacement for our Edmondson Avenue location," said Ira Kress, president of Giant Food, in a statement.

Jackson, however, feels having to go to a new location isn't fair.

"How can I get there if I don't drive? I don't know the buses that well like that. That's a long way from here," she said.

Baltimore City Councilman Kristerfer Burnett represents District 8, which includes Edmondson Village. He said been in contact with Mayor Brandon Scott's office, the Edmondson Square plaza's owner, as well as other city departments about trying to attract a replacement -- especially with the neighboring Edmondson Village Shopping Center's multimillion-dollar redevelopment in the works.

But, Burnett is also figuring out how to deal with the immediate impact. Some things he's looking into include launching a farmers market and helping transport Edmondson Village residents to the Wilkens Avenue Giant location.

Giant confirmed workers at Edmondson Avenue have been offered transfers to work at other locations. Also, pharmacy customers will be notified to move their prescriptions.

Red Lobster website lists 87 locations 'temporarily closed' in 27 states: See full list

Red Lobster has abruptly closed dozens of restaurants across the country.

A look at the restaurant chain's website reveals 87 stores temporarily closed across 27 states , with some of them having their kitchen equipment up for auction on an online restaurant liquidator.

The liquidator, TAGeX Brands, announced Monday it is auctioning off equipment this week from 48 locations that have closed. The website says auctions are live and will end periodically on Thursday, and that each winner will receive the "entire contents of the Red Lobster location they bid on."

USA TODAY reached out to Red Lobster on Tuesday and did not get a response prior to publication.

Here's what we know about the closures, including where they're happening and why these restaurants are closing.

Red Lobster considered filing for bankruptcy in April

The seafood chain considered filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month in an effort to restructure its debt,  according to Bloomberg .

The company had been getting advice from law firm King & Spalding as it looked to shed some long-term contracts and renegotiate leases, Bloomberg reported, noting that Red Lobster's cash flows had been weighed down by leases and labor costs, among other issues.

Red Lobster suffered big losses with 'Ultimate Endless Shrimp' promotion

In 2023, the seafood chain's " Ultimate Endless Shrimp " deal became more popular than expected, inadvertently becoming a key factor in a $11 million loss in the third quarter.

The limited-time promotional deal, in which guests picked two types of shrimp to enjoy nonstop for $20, landed a permanent spot on Red Lobster menus in June. Red Lobster's parent company, Thai Union Group, said in November 2023 that the chain was headed toward a $20 million loss for 2023. Now the endless shrimp deal costs $25.

Thai Union Group CFO Ludovic Regis Henri Garnier said in an earnings report call that the company was aware the initial price for the endless-shrimp deal was cheap. The offer was intended to draw customers into restaurants, but orders exceeded expectations, he said.

"We wanted to boost our traffic, and it didn't work," Garnier told investors in November 2023, according to  Restaurant Business Magazine . "We want to keep it on the menu. And of course we need to be much more careful regarding what are the entry points and what is the price point we are offering for this promotion."

No trace of ethylene oxide in MDH, Everest spice samples: FSSAI

 alt=

New Delhi: Food regulator FSSAI has not found any trace of ethylene oxide in samples of spices of two major brands MDH and Everest that were tested in 28 accredited laboratories, sources said. According to them, reports from six other laboratories are still pending. Last month, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) started taking samples of spices in powder form of all brands, including MDH and Everest, from across the country in view of quality concerns flagged by Hong Kong and Singapore.

The Hong Kong's Center for Food Safety (CFS) had asked consumers not to buy certain spice mix products of MDH and Everest, citing the presence of ethylene oxide beyond the permissible limit. These products are MDH's Madras Curry Powder, Everest Fish Curry Masala, MDH Sambhar Masala Mixed Masala Powder, and MDH Curry Powder Mixed Masala Powder. Ethylene oxide, is a cancer causing chemical, that is used as a steriliser to prevent microbe attack. It can extend the shelf life of food items.

According to sources, a pan India drive was initiated on April 22 through all the commissioners of food safety of states and Union Territories and regional directors of FSSAI. It included extensive inspections of the spice manufacturing units and also sampling and testing of products manufactured for sale and distribution for consumption in the domestic market. Sources said the samples of Everest spices were picked up from their two manufacturing facilities. As many as 25 samples from MDH have been lifted by FSSAI from their 11 manufacturing facilities, they said. Each of the products sampled was analysed for compliance with various quality and safety parameters including pesticide residues. These samples were also analysed for Ethylene Oxide (ETO) at NABL-accredited laboratories notified by FSSAI.

The laboratory reports received so far were examined by the scientific panel at FSSAI and observed that the samples showed no traces of ethylene oxide, sources said. Similarly, test reports of over 300 samples of spices of other brands were also examined by the scientific panel and those also conclusively indicated no presence of ethylene oxide, they added.

The scientific panel comprises eminent scientists from the Spice Board, CSMCRI (Gujarat), Indian Spice Research Institute (Kerala), NIFTEM (Haryana), BARC (Mumbai), CMPAP (Lucknow), DRDO (Assam), ICAR, National Research Centre on Grapes, (Pune).

The Spice Board has also issued guidelines to the spice exporters for using ETO as a fumigant for sterilising spices to deal with microbial contamination as per the standards of importing countries, sources said.
