FOOD COMPANY INTRODUCE RAJAN DISHES

A Bengaluru-based food company has introduced two offbeat dishes in its menu to celebrate the legacy of outgoing RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan, who has left his own distinct mark on the central bank. Zzungry said it had introduced limited edition of "Ulundu kozhukattai" and "Kova kozhukattai" that are inspired from the cuisines of two states in the country that hold great relevance in the life of Rajan. The dishes priced at Rs 100 and Rs 150 will be available in the menu from August 26 to September 2 just before Rajan's sign off from his tenure as the chief of the central bank, it said. His current three-year term ends on September 4. "This is a unique gesture from Zzungry to appreciate the commendable work done by Dr Rajan. He has touched the lives of commoners and entrepreneurs like us in a positive way," said Ashish Kalya, Co- Founder, Zzungry. Ulundu kozhukattai is a delectable savoury rice flour dumpling stuffed with medium spicy mixture of urad dal, tempered with curry leaves and spices, steamed and served with chutney. The dish is inspired from the cuisine of Madhya Pradesh where Rajan was born, a statement said here. The other dish "Kova kozhukattai" is a sweet rice flour dumpling stuffed with cardamom flavoured mixture of khoya with dry fruits, simmered in rose flavoured milk, that is served as a dessert. The sweet dish is inspired from the cuisine of Tamil Nadu that connects to his origins, it said. RBI Deputy Governor Urjit Patel has been appointed as successor of "rockstar" Rajan, who vigorously pushed through major reforms in RBI including implementing an inflation target and cleaning up debt-ridden banks. He also courted controversies for his public comments on some issues.

DHIRUBHAI ENJOYED IN WEALTH CREATION

Leading businessman Anil Ambani today said more than creating wealth for himself, his father late Dhirubhai Ambani derived greater happiness from creating wealth for masses. "If you ever asked what part of being an entrepreneur he (late Ambani) enjoyed the most, he would say, 'I enjoy creating wealth. But what I enjoy even more is in creating wealth for the people of the country,'" the Anil Ambani Group chairman said while addressing an industry event here. It can be noted that the late Ambani, who had a humble beginning as a primary school teacher's son in Gujarat, is regarded as the father of capital markets and the equity cult, who made millions of investors millionaires with the IPO of Reliance Textile Industries in 1977. A person who had put in Rs 1,000 then in the IPO is worth over a million today, going by the price of RIL. Stating that the launch of Kothari Pioneer Mutual Fund, which was country's first private MF in 1993, was his (Dhirubhai's) id…
