JPNN|New Delhi | Feb 23, 2014|Union Minister Farooq Abdullah Sunday batted for encouraging migrant Kashmiri Pandit families to return to the Valley, saying nothing can keep them away from their "roots"."Inshallah, I'm sure time is coming when people

are going to come back to their roots. That time is coming. It will happen. Nobody can keep that away. It will happen," the National Conference chief told news agency. The Minister for New and Renewable Energy was here to attend a three-day cultural extravaganza "Shuhul Taaph-V" organised by Kashmiri Education Cultural Science Society (KECSS), which saw performances by various artists from the community, besides an art exhibition and award distribution ceremony."Such cultural gatherings would help bridge the physical distance from one's own motherland. It will generate passion that will take us to our roots. It makes you realise that you have roots and those roots will attract you back," he said. The beats of the 'tumbak' and sarangi's sweet symphony could not hold back Abdullah from singing along some famous Kashmiri tunes with the artists who were performing. "It's a great thing. It keeps the culture of Kashmir alive. It helps Kashmiris know each other and the biggest thing is that it gives opportunity to young artists to show their art," the Union Minister said on the importance of having a cultural meet."The big achievement is that this organisation has tried not only in India but even abroad to bring people, who belong to Kashmir, together," Abdullah said.PTI

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
