A Welcome Price Hike!
Price hikes have gone thru a number of transformations – from shocking news, to hurting jokes and finally, now to cruel norms. Prices of essential commodities are shooting upwards but since they are indispensable, their consumption continues. However, this news sounds like a positive exception.
The crazy use of oil and Ghee in our domestic food chain has been at the center of a lot of disorders and health issues in our society. Think of a paratha at a Quetta hotel and you will get a mental image of a crisp red fried peta bread dripping with Ghee. Think of Nihari from a shop, and you would see an inch deep layer of reddened Ghee covering your dish. The lavish use of trans fats is somehow afforded by the labor class as they are generally involved in tough physical jobs but for the rest of us, it is a recipe of disaster in waiting.
