Cooking is indeed a great word. Greatness of this word extends to culinary art as well as art of concocting stories out of incidents everywhere (but we will talk about India). If we talk about food, Indian recipes in Hindi are all too famous. Some people may also feel that India is synonymous to its spicy food. People abroad are very much aware of the range and flavor we offer. People who are in love with this art follow recipes book reviews from every corner of world to know which book would be better to take and start experimenting with its dishes. If we talk about media, Hindi news channels and newspapers have got skills to translate news into flattering piece of publication/story. Thanks to God that this generosity in cooking is kept in check even with lots of experimentation.
Why do people come up with cooking? Mothers and wives do it as their duty and a way to show their affection. Some take cooking as their profession (of course we are talking of food here) and become Chef. Indian Recipes in Hindi is more of a routine to earlier category when they flip through newspaper. They are very much aware of common ingredients and comfortable in making something new out of the same. Recipe Book reviews in Hindi also help them in this task (by choosing right book) if they are looking out of newspapers and Food Channels. Chefs on the other hand are trained for experimentation. They rely on instinct and their knowledge of flavors honed over years.
Now if we see same cooking from point of view of representation of Hindi News, story is not much different as it may seem in a cursory glance. Media people get whiff of happenings of surroundings. Then story telling skills play their crucial role. As readers and viewers of such a representation of news we have become accustomed to them. Indians love spice and so they are served like that.
