  9. 9. - 9 - Gaothan Voice april 2014 EAST INDIAN PUNCH THE MOUTHPIECE OF THE MOBAI GAOTHAN PANCHAYAT EAST INDIAN JAVNACHA CHASKA, DOSA NEM CHINESE KA ZHAILA PECHKA Its time we promote East Indian Food s we move around our lovely city Bombay or maybe go to Vasai, Raigad or Thane we see plenty of food outlets but the one missing is our East Indian food. South indian food is spread across and internationalfood Abe it Chinese, Thai, Lebanese, Italian are all available in Bombay. So why is the food prepared by the indigenous people not available or promoted on a big scale? MGP has been constantly appealing to promote our food but somehow we have not taken it seriously. We spend our monies on foods prepared by other regions but shy awayfrompromotingourveryown. The time has come my dear East Indian people to promote our food with its rich taste and variety. If we don’t work towards promoting out food it will die a slow death and we will be feasting on dishes without the East Indian flavor. Its time all of us Big or Small, Wealthy-Middle Class-Poor, Men and Women, Seniors and Minors all come together to promote our food. We at MGPare pretty sure that if we do our little bit we will see the face of East Indian Food in somestreetcornersandastimepasses ineverycornerofournativetown. To give East Indian Food the perfect lift we need to promote it in three sectors: Restaurants and Hotels, Packaged food and Fast food stalls. We have come across our community members who are keen on starting an East Indian Restaurant but want inputs and support to begin the venture.An East Indian Restaurant should have the East Indian home ambience, with our lovely music, at times live performances, stewards in our traditional dress and a lugra lining at every space. Some of our high profile community members should float this initiative by floating in an investment scheme for all interested investors. The first East Indian Restaurant will always be a talking point not onlyinournativetownbutacrosstheworld. Packaging foods through self help groups has great potential. Here a group of women will produce East Indian foods like bottle masala, pickle, dry fish and papad and end it to their central centre for packaging and quality checks. Here we can encourage the self help groups for investment our promote micro finance schemes for our community members. The packages food space has great potential and if promoted can take our East Indian food to greatheightsandmakeitapreferredchoice. MGP has met various authorities like the Chief Minister, Mayor, MP’s, MLA’s and Corporators for allotment of East Indian food stalls in the lines of Zunka Bhakar and Shiv Vada pav stalls.As usual the politicians just ignored us and its time we take things seriously. If they have taken away our lands under the disguise of various legislations then we have every right to demand back what was rightfully ours. Similarly we donated our church lands and so space for a East Indian food stall should be considered across all parishes. We have met the Cardinal and Bishops with our community demands and we look forward to their support. The East Indian Food stalls can sell fast foods withtheEastIndianconnecttopromoteourfooditems. Lets not these plans not remain mere dreams but lets make them a reality. This will happen only if each one of us put in their hearts, their little money, their expertise, their time and whatever little they can to make East Indian Food well known. Things will always be tough and challenging but its time we take the risk before its too late. MGP ensuresallthosewho promoteEastIndianFood whateversupportwecanaswehaveaheartforourcommunity. My dear people, the time has come to make our fugyas, rotyas, lapsi, chinchoni, fugath, chitaps, moile, kolim, aatvan,khudiwellknown acrosstheworld.ItstimewegiveothercommunitiestheEastIndianTaste.
