Every fortnight, The Intersection narrates stories that meld culture, science and history in India. Through interviews, anecdotes and original research, Padmaparna Ghosh and Samanth Subramanian bring alive the rich breadth of human imagination and knowledge, making for a riveting listening experience. The incessant punning — well, that’s just a bonus.
The burgeoning Indian army contingent fighting in the Second World War faced problems apart from just the ones it encountered on the field of battle. The Indian recruits were found to be sickly and deficient in essential nutrients. The Intersection investigates how nutrition research has evolved since then and how the Indian army overhauled its diet, while simultaneously overcoming the challenges posed by our country’s diverse food culture and habits.
