The Mela is expected to be attended by personalities from the film world, musicians, writers  and intellectuals.

The Safe Food Mela is part of a nation-wide campaign called INDIA FOR SAFE FOOD (, which seeks to promote chemical-free farming and alternatives to toxic technologies like synthetic pesticides and Genetically Modified foods.  India continues to use many pesticides that have been banned in other countries and many of these are known to be carcinogenic, endocrine-disrupting or reproductive-toxicants. Many studies including in the public sector laboratories, show our food, water and soil, and even breast-milk are contaminated with pesticides.

The Mela in Kodambakkam will have organic outlets from around the city setting up their stalls with a variety of products (fresh greens, millets, traditional rices, honey, snacks etc.), as also food-stalls selling tasty ready to eat organic fare.  Awareness material about toxics in foods, traditional and safe foods, and urban gardening will also be on display.
