BATTLE OF THE PRICES 1947 vs 2018

While I could draw up a comparison list of 1947 items and their pricing from Independence to present day, I decided to use the cinematic survival guide of Roti, Kapda, Makaan.

But when you think 2018, the definition of essential survival products is very different. Its not the price of grain, clothes or housing that determines our life, Instead its the lifestyle itself! So here’s what you would have paid for the current lifestyle in 1947!

THERE’S NEVER A BETTER WAY OF ESCAPING REAL LIFE THAN A LITTLE SONG N DANCE…

72 years gone, despite over 2000% appreciation on some items, we still make most of the above purchases without batting an eyelid.  What a time to be ALIVE!

WHAT’S FOR BREAKFAST SUPERWOMAN?

In the battle of marketing vs healthy, marketing always wins- by telling you what is good for you, beneficial for you and even a weight watcher for you. So believe me as we go buying the imported quinoa’s of the world, there is a whole segment of superfood right here, under our nose that has not been hyped by Marketeers yet.

One such understated, ancient grain ( It was the staple food of the Aztecs and is high in protein and among the grains with highest fiber) is Amaranth or Ramdana as we know it. You may think you’ve never seen or eaten it, but think Navratra’s and you’ll know what I am taking about.

SUPER FOOD: AMARANTH/RAMDANA

So here’s this week’s 2 minute healthy breakfast that you’re going to love, specially coz it has a chocolate option!

THE MAGIC AMARANTH POTION 

Take 50gms or 2 ram dana ladoos

1/4 cup water

1 tbsp honey/2 cubes of a dark chocolate

Chia seeds/ Flax seeds/ Dryfruit of choice ( Optional)

METHOD

Add the ram dana, (or if using the ladoo, crush into small pieces) to a saucepan , add water and boil for 3 minutes. You can choose to keep it watery or a porridge kind of consistency, by adjusting the water. Add honey and choice of seed and eat. If you’re adding chocolate, avoid the honey. Warning- since its dark chocolate it’s not going to be very sweet. But hey how else can you eat chocolate guilt free?
