    What is so special about bread? Eat Kurrakan Pittu, Thalapa,
    Sorghum . , Manioc , Bathala, Jack fruit ,Del Etc. Our ancestors during ancient times did nor eat Bread . Bread is a Western corrupt nutritional conspiracy, hoisted on us by the Colonials.

    I can remember sometime back the way to emphasise that someone was poor in stories was to say that they used to eat bread for all three meals.
    but now see what has happened. poor will never survive this regime.

    Soon bread will be out of the reach of the common man and parents will name their children 'Paang' in memory of the bread they once enjoyed.

    sunda Monday, 29 October 2012 05:46 AM

    The flour price increase is it not illegal. I thought some one in the government said they cannot increase flour prices.

    Prima is given the right to increase flour prices at will.govt has no control over it.This is the danger of monopoly.Free market allows demand and supply to decide price and result in more competition giving competitive benefit to consumers.Govt should intervene in this. via DM Android App

    sapphire Monday, 29 October 2012 05:53 AM

    who comes first to say he will not allow prima company to dance, now mouth shut prima dancing.All these before election. After election for taxes and another increase through taxes. How cunning and our masses are foolish.

    sapphire Monday, 29 October 2012 05:56 AM

    Now bread is cake and cake is bread, not the change of the world, it is only the change in SL.

    Please serve bread and plantains to home visitors, parties and any officials/ministrials functions/celebrations. Eat cake with dhal or any curry for all the three meals. Earlier bread was known as poor mans food, but now it is known as rich mans cake.
