The covid-19 Pandemic has taken the World by storm and it has brought about unprecedented changes in our lifestyle. In the modern world with hectic lifestyles dominating we cannot do away with food packaging and innovative stationery items.
The pandemic has thrust upon us a new normal and brought about changes necessary to avoid getting infected and keep safe. This paradigm shift has increased the new stationery product range and modified the existing one. The regulatory mechanism has increased the usage of some essentials as imperative. Industries too have geared up their products in order to meet the expectations and demands of consumers and food packaging is one of them.
Yes, green technology is being promoted globally.
The subheading Food packing technology includes the information that self-cooling, self-heating and water-soluble packaging are possible in the not-too-distant future.
Would such environment- and user-friendly packaging technology be available within the next five to 10 years or sooner or later in the century?
Zoonotic diseases are mostly due to eating exotic meat which is not at all popular in India. In some countries they will eat everything that is alive or even dead. We should not consume wild animals whom we are not accustomed to since there is no immunity for the microbes present. India is predominately vegetarian almost 30 % are total vegetarians.
Cast system in India was based on profession although it is dying a slow death now (Exploited by politicians now). It seems the tribal communities in India faced isolation but that is not true now...they have special reservations and quotas. Social interaction between caste was not prevented but the extreme lower caste did face discrimination they now have special reservations and quotas in many sectors for their uplift. Most of the societies in India do not practice any kind on discrimination but being a large country people in some places need to practice greater level of acceptance.
Yes the article states truth if you read about conservation ethos promulgated during the Vedic Era.
In earlier times India had lot many plagues some of which had occurred elsewhere as well. But to be honest I have no idea of their origins as we do in case of Pandemic now.
There's a book out about historic pandemics. Of course, bubonic plague is mentioned, with the suggestion that Europe suffered because of the black death being transmitted by land and sea routes from Asia. It notes as culprits the Mongol Empire from Asia into eastern Europe, the Silk Route, the spice traders and Yunnan province in China.
Some time ago, I read an article suggesting that India was victim, not spreader, of the bubonic plague. So I searched the internet and found that article, from summer 2007, by Lakshmikanthan Anandavalli, The Black Death in Medieval India: A Historical Mystery, partially available on the Medievalists website and totally available through a link there to Tangents: The Journal of the Master of Liberal Arts program at Stanford University.
Is there a tradition orally or among "ordinary people," or is there some scholarship within northern and western India, about the Black Death pandemic occurring later and less severely in the subcontinent in the 16th century (because of European transmission through port cities), and not at all in the 14th century with the rest of the Asian and European world?
It seems to me that the caste system, as a possible antecedent to social distancing (;-D), and the general cultural and religious respect for animals and resources make the Anandavalli article plausible.
Both gloves and masks are necessary in pandemic rather always for food handlers.
pateluday, Thank you for the practical information and product lines.
Are such food establishments as convenience stores, drive-throughs, food stands, grocery stores and restaurants supposed to have their employees paying attention to packaging and wearing gloves and masks? In terms of grocery stores and markets, customers put on masks, not gloves, and touch items, such as canned goods, packaged foods and unpackaged produce, they may buy or may put back down.
Protection t this time is a complex issue, and must address a multitude of issues. This addresses one that is not often thought of, and has merit.
