As I found the last packet of Maggi in home, I was delighted inspite all the claims of Maggi containing lead & MSG- harmful substances, I couldn't resist the desire to give a proper good bye hug by savoring it plateful & paying full attention without watching TV. These were the thoughts that ran across my mind while enjoying the last plate of Maggi. :
OK baby we will do it one more time, the world need not know, just for the old times sake we need to do it one last time, for the thrill in it.
We ate Maggi when we were hungry in middle of night, in hostel when nothing was available & this was the only food which used to bring excitement & joy. In outings & trips where the conventional food doesn't get transported easily. We enjoyed Maggi when we were desperately hungry when there was nothing in stomach or after cooking experiment failed. This was the plan B in case your newly learnt dish turns out bad. This was backup plan for newly weds. There are jokes on net that 90 percent of women removed Maggi as their cooking skill after this ban happened.
But on a serious note, we need to wake up to understand the ingredients in the foods we eat. This Maggi was clearly the case of nestle under reacting & Govt overreacting. But we should react appropriately to other food stuffs we consume. How many of us care to bother the ingredients mentioned on the food stuffs ? There are so many local & international companies making & selling products which are not quality checked. There are local delicacies which are consumed from many years or even generations. What about them ? I suggest govt & the food committees do at-least top 100 food stuffs quality checks first, then the later can follow.
