Chatpate Raz, an exciting look at the Spices of India

Chatpate Raz, a 13 part series comes straight out of the Indian Spice box. A fascinating potpourri of culture, history, wellness & medicine, traditional wisdom & cuisine, agriculture and above all, scientific research.

What seems to the modern mind like little more than seasoning to conjure a meal is so much more. Spices have influenced the way people eat, how they live and where they live. They have cured and healed. They have launched ships of explorations, led to the discovery of continents and even fuelled wars.

Even in today’s modern world, when the globe has shrunk and everything is available everywhere, in a time where Spices have become mere condiments due to their attainability, a silent revolution is brewing in laboratories to use the power of Spices to a healthier life, to better crops.

From cutting edge pharmaceutical research to traditional wisdom that forms the very base of Reverse Pharmacology. It’s a Series that has something for each one! Here traditional wisdom and Scientific research are not at logger-heads, but complementary!

CHATPATE RAZ is looking at the intriguing spices to unravel answers:

How do Spices reach our Spice Box? Where do they grow?

Why would plants produce such aromatic compounds?

What do Spices mean to food & nutrition?

Why is turmeric the most researched spice in the whole world?

Could the treatment of Alzheimers & Parkinson, Diabetes & Hyper tension be hiding in our Spice Box?

Why does pepper make us Sneeze & Chilli, Cough?

Why are Spice Plants called Living Pharmacies?

Why should the Western Ghats be protected

Do chillies cause Ulcers or protect us from it?

How does our sense of taste & smell work?

Do we love spices because they are good for us, or because they are good for us, so we have come to love them?

What would Cardamom do without the bee?

Which spice is the Great Medicament?

From the exotic Saffron that grows in Jammu & Kashmir to the pungent pepper that stays confined to the three southern states. A fascinating journey in the world of spices blending in culture, art, cuisine, even mythology.

“Science This week”

 

With an innovative idea to explore and depict happenings in the field of science and technology in India, Vigyan Prasar has come up with a challenging task of producing weekly science news “Science This week” telecast through, DD India. A first weekly current affairs/news based video programme “Science this week” is being telecast every Sunday from DD India at 11:00 AM. It’s for the first time in the history of Indian television that a science news slot not only occupies the space of effects but also the space of causes. This is what science is all about. Rather than sensationalizing a particular news item, the weekly news sensitizes the masses by projecting the true science behind it. Like the Super Moon did no harm to the earth as was predicted by many news channels. Similarly, Tsunami doesn’t happen due to divine intervention. The voice of eminent scientists and experts from the field of science and technology give credibility to the reports. The weekly news has many segments for varied interests of the viewers.
