BrainSTARS April 2014 Calendar

Dear friends of BrainSTARS

This is the time of the year when many communities living in different regions of India celebrate their new year festivals with families and food plays a huge role in these celebrations. The different cuisines cooked during these festivals are deeply connected to the regions – they are symbolic as well as manifest a culture of eating that has developed around the crops, vegetables, fruits, meat, fish etc grown in the region.

Ugadi is the new year festival of Karnataka. Bevu-bella is a special dish prepared during Ugadi to symbolise the myriad bitter sweet experiences of life and how each of us should take them in our stride.

For our April calendar, we focus on the main ingredients of bevu-bella – unripe mangoes, tamarind, jaggery and neem flowers – and look at their cultural, agricultural and scientific aspects.

This series of calendars is conceived by our team and designed by the excellent people at Ladyfingers Co.

    Dear friends of BrainSTARS
    Summer has blazed into Bangalore and we are witnessing temperature soar in a way we would have never imagined possible in this garden city. It has raised many questions about the nature of our relationship with our environment and the kind of city we are leaving for the younger generations.
    However, we don’t want to be killjoys either. We want our children to have wonderful summer memories and there is no better way to do it than the BrainSTARS way – science it up or maths it up!
    We have taken one of summer’s best fruits – watermelon – and maths it up a bit with a little help from the good old bucket. If you can answer Kudums’ question in our May calendar, we have a surprise gift for you. The first five correct entries win one surprise gift each. That’s what we call good summer fun!
    Go to our facebook page (facebook.com/brainstars), like it if you still haven’t liked it, recommend it to five friends, give us the right answer in the comments section of our facebook photo post of this calendar and you are all set to win!
