“The food of India is time tested. It is attracting international attention… Your idli, your sambar, your dosa are becoming international. Pizzas and burgers will not be able to stand before them in the long run,” said Naidu according to the report by India TV News. “Goan fish curry has no parallel. Nobody can beat it. Once you get used to it, you will be tempted because it is time tested,” he added. Goa commences a four-month long fest today where one can experience Goan and Portuguese culture and cuisine.
“India is one of the oldest civilizations in the world, surviving civilization, lively civilization. Roman, Egyptian, Greek, other civilizations are also there. What is the position of those civilizations and what is the position of India’s civilization (now)? India is strong. India is very dynamic because India believes in ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ (world is one family),” said Naidu.
