The Ultimate Love

fotolia_39427420_subscription_monthly_xxl

We talk about love, we talk about different kinds of love, like loving your parents, loving your children, loving your husband or wife, having a love for a place or a thing etc. We also celebrate these loves on particular occasions like Valentines’ Day, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Any particular community or state Day etc. And we express our love through gifts, get-togethers, functions etc. But in all the things sometimes we miss to give due credit to a particular thing which appears in all of these celebrations i.e. food.

Food is something which plays an important role in any kind of celebrations or festivities. It is something which plays an important role in any kind of expressing love. A mother showers her love on her children by making special delicacies which the kids like the most. A lover cooks something exotic to impress his/her partner, devotees prepare unique delicacies for their deities and so on. Infact during off moods, it is famously said that when you are upset and depressed one should eat to recover since the opposite of Stressed is Desserts.
Keeping the ultimate love to its practical use, Raindrops Basmati Rice produces one of the finest and authentic basmati rice so that expressing love doesn’t loose its shine.

Beyond Differences

rice_lead Social intolerance is a big reason for diverse tensions prevailing in modern societies. And it is a major social problem in developing nations especially where number of cast, class, creed and religion co-exist in a given and bounded geographical area. In fact this is a major hindrance in national stability, solidarity and national security.

Due to the same reason various governments, media and civil society organisations undertake many programmes, projects and interventions having an objective of securing solidarity among different communities. Since it is an important work which requires high level of skills and good dissemination of communications and information, interventions sometimes takes years to produce desired effect, since all the programmes designed are area specific.

But Raindrops Basmati Rice goes beyond these interventions in its approach towards attaining a better solidarity among different communities as raindrops basmati rice is the common ground where all the sections of the society, no matter to which caste, class or creed they belong to, meet. child_eating_rice
