Iconic ‘sandesh’ gets a facelift in election season

first_imgKolkata: The “sandesh” has been dressed up. It is on a catwalk either as the Trinamool’s “jora ghash phul” (twin-flower), BJP’s lotus, Congress hand symbol or the hammer and sickle of the CPI-M. These “election sweets” are just flying off the shelves at Balaram Mullick and Radharaman Mullick, one of the oldest confectioners in the city, or Shibani Sweets at Sodepur in the northern suburb. With the humble “nakuldana” (flour-sugar balls) and “laddoo” taking the centre stage ahead of the Lok Sabha polls in rural Bengal, the confectioners in Kolkata are not leaving any opportunity to bank on the frenzied ambience. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari Puja”Sandesh” (cottage cheese sweet) is readily coming up in any form you wish. They have been flying off the shelves since the election drums were rolled. “We have been making these sweets during elections for many years. This year too the response is very good,” Poppy Mullick of Balaram Mullick and Radharaman Mullick said. Asked which party-themed sweet was selling the most, she jokingly said “no comments”. Regarding the bulk orders placed by the party workers, Mullick gave a hint that “the ruling Trinamool Congress topped the chart.” They have priced a sweet of 250 gm at Rs 150. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayThe Sodepur sweet shop, which specialises in theme-based sweets during football and cricket World Cups, is offering decorative trays filled with huge sweets replicated as party symbols. Trinamool’s twin-flower, BJP’s lotus, the hand symbol of Congress or the hammer and sickle of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) — they have all been given a sweet twist. “We are offering the big trays for Rs 800-2,000 each while a small sandesh is priced at Rs 70,” said Sanjib Das, a staff at Shibani Sweets. Das is elated as this year the shop is getting “huge response”. He mentioned that the customers are so impressed that they are asking for larger sizes. “The ‘Trinamool sandesh’ is in great demand. Sweets of other parties like the BJP, Congress and the CPI(M) are selling too,” Das said. Orders can also be customised as per the customers’ demand. The shops also ensure that the customers get fresh sweets, so after placing the order, one has to wait for a little time. Almost 14-15 men are toiling hard to churn out these sweet delicacies laced with aesthetic appeal at Shibani Sweets. “This is just the beginning, I am sure that as the election heat picks up, the demand will keep soaring. We will try our best to deliver,” Das said. While Mullicks will stick to sweets with party symbols, Shibani Sweets will try to come up with sweets replicating leaders’ faces if demanded. Amidst the high voltage campaigns, these sweets will add a dash of goodness and will be savoured by the supporters and the members of the winning party and candidates, the shop said. Trinamool Congress’ Birbhum district president Anubrata Mondal’s directive to party workers to hand over “nakuldana” and water to people to keep them cool and the BJP’s decision to distribute “laddoos” among the people as a counter move has added to the sweetness of the electoral contest in the state. The seven-phase Lok Sabha elections in the state will be held between April 11 and May 19. Votes will be counted on May 23.last_img read more

Regional parties to get more LS seats than Cong, BJP: Akhilesh

first_imgLucknow: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Monday said that regional parties will get more seats than the Congress and the BJP in the ongoing Lok Sabha polls.”I think regional parties will get more seats than the Congress and the BJP. The next PM will be from the regional parties,” he said at a press conference here. When asked whether he was in the race for the top post, Yadav said, “I am not in the race for prime ministership, but will be happy if next PM is from UP.

We will declare candidate from the Varanasi seat soon.” The SP is contesting the Lok Sabha polls in an alliance with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD), keeping the Congress out of the “gathbandhan”.

This time people of the state will shatter his pride and send him to ‘Math’ (Gorakhnath Math).” He said the BJP leaders have “lost their mental balance” after the alliance and it reflected in their language. Asked about PM’s scheduled visit to Kannauj later this week, Yadav said, “The PM and CM should tell the people of Kannauj what their governments have done for them.” On Bhopal BJP candidate Pragya Singh Thakur over her remarks against slain Maharashtra ATS chief Hemant Karkare, he said, “Such people are fielded to divert the attention of the people.

Why starch in bananas potatoes may be good for health

first_imgConsuming foods such as bananas, potatoes, grains and legumes that are rich in resistant starch may help check blood sugar, enhance satiety as well as improve gut health, a study has found.Resistant starch is a form of starch that is not digested in the small intestine and is therefore considered a type of dietary fibre.“We know that adequate fibre intake – at least 30 grams per day – is important for achieving a healthy, balanced diet, which reduces the risk of developing a range of chronic diseases,” said Stacey Lockyer, Nutrition Scientist at British Nutrition Foundation, a Britain-based charity.  Also Read – Add new books to your shelfApart from occurring naturally in foods, resistant starch is also produced or modified commercially and incorporated into food products. Unlike the typical starch, resistant starch acts like a type of fibre in the body as it does not get digested in the small intestine, but is is fermented in the large intestine.This dietary fibre then increases the production of short chain fatty acids in the gut, which act as an energy source for the colonic cells, thus improving the gut health and increasing satiety. According to the researchers, there is consistent evidence that consumption of resistant starch can aid blood sugar control. It has also been suggested that resistant starch can support gut health and enhance satiety via increased production of short chain fatty acids.“Whilst findings support positive effects on some markers, further research is needed in most areas to establish whether consuming resistant starch can confer significant benefits that are relevant to the general population. However, this is definitely an exciting area of nutritional research for the future,” Lockyer said.The study was published in the journal Nutrition Bulletin.last_img read more
