Pebbles In The Rice! - Poem by Subbaraman N V

Pebbles in the rice
Surely not a spice
Housewife's slice
Every day's prize!

Accident or deliberate
Adulteration is unfortunate
Physically seen or unseen
Adulteration is atrocious!

Consumer is killed
Gradually is grilled
Laws do not prevent
In all fields present!

Sinners are adulterators
Greater are abettors
Passive are officials
Evasive are politicians!

Conscience should prevail
Consumers should assert
Abettors should resent
Adulterators should relent!

    Wow, this explains it all, doesn't it? As an American just visiting Kolkata, India, I ran into this problem first-hand. I think it is no 'accident', though, 'Consumer is killed' for sure, and how can the politicians just evade the problem? So as a consumer, I AM going to 'assert' here. I wrote up a story of my experience, 'A Call to Indian Merchants and/or their Suppliers to Stop Putting Rocks into their Rice! ' (http: // . I've also included photos there, what I think should be done about it, as well as a little research on the subject, even quoting this poem here. It all goes together. Already Reported Reply
