Weather experts predict interruption of heavy rain in Karnataka



The Siasat Daily: Latest Hyderabad News, Telangana, Entertainment, India

Bengaluru: After enjoying two sunny days after 15 long days of unrelenting heavy rain, Karnataka saw the bad weather return on Wednesday. Clouds dominated the sky in the evening, followed by light showers in southern Karnataka, including Bengaluru.

However, as a major reprieve for the people of Bengaluru and Karnataka, experts have predicted that there will be no heavy rain in the coming days.

They have forecast light showers for two more days in the southern region of Karnataka.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) said there is no warning situation for Karnataka until November 28.

Senior Advisor to the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Center (KSDMC), Dr. GS Sreenivas Reddy, told IANS that the southern interior areas, especially those on the border with Tamil Nadu, will witness light to moderate rainfall, including Bengaluru.

“Karnataka will not witness incessant rain as before. Adjacent areas of Tamil Nadu will witness light to moderate rain, but not much.

“The rains are due to cyclonic circulation. It is located in the southern part of Tamil Nadu and currently circulates over the sea. It is likely to create a low pressure area tomorrow (Thurs) and then move toward northern Sri Lanka and southern Tamil Nadu. Two days of cyclonic circulation will be active, and that influence will be a bit on Karnataka. Tamil Nadu and Kerala will get more rain,” he said.



Vegan restaurant trend shouldn’t put global cuisine on the back burner




Vegan restaurant trend shouldn't put global cuisine on the back burner

The restaurant industry as a whole has never received as much attention as it did during the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a rare day when the news cycle didn’t include a story about restaurant closures, job losses, food shortages, a shift to takeout, and the debate over which restaurants should receive financial support, why and how.

But if there was a trend in restaurants during the pandemic, it would be the move towards vegan restaurants, incorporating even the most meat-centric cuisines into their menus.

Veganism – eating no animal products or foods that rely on animal by-products, such as wine filtered with oyster shells – has made its way into the Capital Region restaurant scene, with a huge influx of plant-based restaurants thriving under this business model. In Troy, Burrito Burrito turns the Tex-Mex main course into a meat-free option and Meadowlark offers vegan exclusive catering, while The Hollow Bar + Kitchen in Albany has served as proof that a vegan restaurant can thrive. The result is a new cache of vegan restaurants in Albany – Bar Vegan, Wizard Burger, Healthy on Lark, Subculture – playing for the meatless people. Others (Troy Beer Garden, Herbie’s Burger) have included vegan items in their menus to cater to all taste buds and food preferences.

Eaters and food writers herald the transition to plant-based cooking as new and innovative, but in reality veganism is as old as food itself, even here in the Capital Region. That point is overlooked if we focus solely on the wave of new restaurants offering vegan options.

“For thousands of years, Indian, Asian and Middle Eastern foods were not vegan as a fad. It’s something we’ve always done,” said Aneesa Waheed, executive chef and owner of Tara Kitchen Moroccan restaurants in Schenectady, Troy, Guilderland and Wildwood, NJ. In her restaurants, her menu consists mainly of vegetable-oriented dishes that avoid animal products. the native ingredients used in Moroccan cuisine. Although fish, chicken and lamb are available in certain preparations, the menu is largely vegan and vegetarian, much like traditional North African cuisine.

This pattern is repeated locally elsewhere. While Lark Street and North Pearl Street in Albany have become hubs for vegan dining, long-standing restaurants just steps away serve vegan fare as main menu items. At Mamoun’s Restaurant on Washington Avenue, most dishes are made vegan, although they are not promoted as vegan. Nearby, at Umana Yana, veganism is in a collection of recipes centered on the south of the world, not as a principle, but as a tribute to the traditions surrounding those recipes.

“This is a matter of representation in veganism. Inclusion is very important,” said Andrea Shaye, operations manager for Capital Region Vegan Network. The organization offers a restaurant guide to establishments not normally included in the conversations about veganism, but Shaye said including those restaurants is vital in providing context on the long, robust history of vegan food and culture. The network also organizes the annual VEG OUT festival.

“There is so much power in the history of veganism, especially in religions like Buddhism and Jainism, that is not always seen in the media. It needs to be sorted out,” Shaye said.

Politics, economics, environment and religion dictated a culture’s eating habits. For most of history, meat and animal by-products were a rare commodity. While cheese and dried fish emerged as a means of preserving food, what we today call “farm food” stems from the limited or nonexistent use of animal products in cooking. Environmental conditions also limited the availability of meat, while some religions (such as Buddhism and Hinduism) prohibit or discourage the consumption of animal products. The recipes that emerged from these cultural constraints are the foundation of vegan cuisine.

“The vegan food culture, in a practical sense, goes back to human time. The practice of not eating meat, culturally around the world, is based on poverty. Unless you were extraordinarily rich, you would never have eaten meat. It just wasn’t feasible,” says Kristen Hartke, a vegan-focused food writer and recipe developer from New York City.

We still see these recipes on local menus: falafel. Greens and beans. Stewed lentils. Beans and rice. Steamed Paksoi. Nearly every ethnicity represented in restaurants in the Capital Region offers, in part, vegan dining options.

The marketing power of veganism has caused these restaurants to be overlooked as part of the larger vegan scene. As many as six percent of American eaters report being vegan or following a mostly plant-based diet, and the global plant-based industry in 2019 is valued at $4.5 billion, according to Plant Based Food Association reports. That number continues to grow, fueled by lab-developed products designed to mimic the usefulness and texture of animal foods.

“What’s interesting is that we’re seeing this paradigm shift. A lot of money is being put into technology-based food. Like other forms of technology, it’s only accessible to those with wealth and access,” Hartke says, adding that many forms of modern veganism defy the roots of vegan culture.

Vegan dishes, like any other meat or dairy based product, have as much history and fame in our local food culture as any other cuisine. The new vegan restaurants, which are mostly white-owned, overlook the deep history of non-white ownership of veganism, both as a cultural resource and a business venture. Talking about the rise of veganism as if it were a sudden fashion trend, without establishing the context of global veganism in our restaurant scene, could be considered cultural oppression.

Action for Sport in National Lottery Community Fund grant of £10,000




Action for Sport in National Lottery Community Fund grant of £10,000

A BRADFORD charity that gives donated sports shoes, boots and trainers to underprivileged children in the district has been awarded a £10,000 raffle grant.

Action for Sport has received funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, the UK’s largest funder of community activities.

The charity was co-founded by Clive Michallat, who has been a scout with the Bantams for over 15 years, and Andrew Kenure and started in March last year. The donations of football boots or trainers from the charity are given to children to use for their own sporting activity.

Mr Kenure said: “Without National Lottery players, projects like ours could not exist.

“Clive and I have made huge personal sacrifices to get this project started, but we couldn’t go ahead without the funding.

“Everything we do, from cleaning the boots to paying for our insurance, costs money and we couldn’t cover all those costs ourselves.

“The funding will also allow us to expand into other areas of Bradford where we have not yet worked and hopefully enter secondary schools as well.”

“And it’s a real ‘sliding door’ moment because you think, what would that boy’s life be like if he didn’t have those boots?

“Would he have developed diabetes over time or gotten into trouble as a teenager? The impact on children’s lives of getting them involved in sports really cannot be underestimated.”

Mr Michallat said: “Recently we went to a school and a parent approached us and said, ‘You just don’t know what you’re doing. My son is like any other kid when he puts on those football boots. His confidence has increased, he has joined a local team and he makes more friends and hangs out with a lot of different people.’”

Joe Dobson, Head of Funding for Yorkshire and Humber at The National Lottery Community Fund, said: “Thanks to the National Lottery players, this vital funding will have a huge impact on the lives of young people in Bradford.

“The past year has been incredibly challenging for communities and we applaud the volunteers and groups who have been a lifeline for so many.

“As we all look to the future, we are excited to see how local groups will use this funding to further support their communities to thrive and prosper.”
