S2E6 Lumière Wise Wednesday with Vijaya Chakravarty 

April 12 @ 6:00 pm 6:30 pm IST


Our Guest, Vijaya Chakravarty, is an Author and a Landscape Designer at Harit Landscapes. Vijaya Chakravarty started her career as a lecturer at St. Xavier’s College. She combines writing with teaching, research, and practice. Vijaya tries to promote traditional conservation practices through her books.  In this conversation with Deepa Soman, she speaks about her book ‘Wild Forgotten Foods. She shares about vegetables & fruits, which are forgotten and have disappeared from our food plates, leading to a loss of dietary diversity. It is not enough to hand over a healthy planet to future generations. We must help them acquire the skill sets to take care of it. Identification of wild edibles, propagation, and learning to cook them are essential skills.
