Aarav Srivastav is standing at the crossroads of his life. Despite being one of the brightest pupils in college, he finds himself at the losing end, whether it´s personal or professional. Srimaya is an ill-fated mother; she has a daunting task of getting her only son Aarav released. He is detained by Dubai authorities. Sameer inherits one of the biggest infrastructure development companies of the country. He proves his father wrong by not making mistakes while undertaking this colossal responsibility. Ranvijay, a real estate baron and narcissist, is desperate to make extra cash by devising unethical strategies. Though belonging to the same group in college, Aarav and Sameer aren´t on cordial terms. Sameer marries Aarav´s love interest Saina, while Aarav can´t resist Ranvijay´s assistance for avenging the injustice meted out to him. A deadly war ensues when both get trapped in maze of deception where the only thing matters to them is building an identity of his own outpacing the other´s. This is the world of apparent friends, where conscience is fragile and intentions are prejudicial, where ideals are burnt and ego is appeased, where love is evident and slyness is wide spread, where trust is elusive and hate is contagious. 1.

As globalization alters our relationship to food, photographer Gregg Segal has embarked on a global project asking kids from around the world to take his ´´Daily Bread´´ challenge. Each child keeps a detailed journal of everything they eat in a week, and then Segal stages an elaborate portrait of them surrounded by the foods they consumed. The colorful and hyper-detailed results tell a unique story of multiculturalism and how we nourish ourselves at the dawn of the 21st century. From Los Angeles to Sao Paulo, Dakar to Hamburg, Dubai to Mumbai we come to understand that regardless of how small and interconnected the world seems to become each year, diverse pockets of traditional cultures still exist on each continent, eating largely the same way they have been for hundreds of years. It is this rich tapestry that Segal captures with care and appreciation, showcasing the page-after-page charm of Daily Bread. Contrasted with the packaged and processed foods consumed primarily in developed nations, questions about health and sustainability are raised and the book serves as a catalyst for consideration of our status quo. There´s an old adage, ´´The hand that stirs the pot rules the world.´´ Big Food is stirring the pot for children all over the world. Nonetheless, there are regions and communities where slow food will never be displaced by junk food, where home-cooked meals are the bedrock of family and culture, and where love and pride are expressed in the aromas of stews and curries.
