REVIEW FOR BRINJAL FOOD FESTIVAL
Can you imagine 25 delicious dishes next to each other, all made of brinjal? Or 50 varieties of brinjal on display, of different shapes, sizes and colors? The Centre For Sustainable Agriculture (CSA), Association For India's Development (AID) - Hyderabad, and Chetana Organic, are jointly organizing a Brinjal Food Festival on the 8th of March. The event, for which more than 5,000 people are expected to turn up, is being organized in order to draw attention to the danger of Genetically Modified (GM) food crops, which are endangering naturally grown vegetables. It is on for the whole day, from 11am to 8pm.

Apart from displays of different kinds of brinjal, and dishes cooked with the vegetable, the festival also consists of other programs. There is a brinjal cooking competition with celebrity judges, a screening of Mahesh Bhatt's film 'Poison On The Platter', and quizzes and skits. Visitors get to meet brinjal farmers (those who do not use pesticides), join a consumer group to buy pesticide-free and GM-free food, and be part of associated activities in campaigning against GM foods.

Volunteers or organizations wishing to participate are invited. Entry is free for women, on the occasion of International Women's Day.
