Some days ago I had received an email on the slow down culture. This had got me thinking. The concept is very current and has made remarkable inroads in the popular imagination of people inEurope…here’s the site. It was founded by Carlo Pertini, an Italian Food and wine journalist in 1986 to tackle the fast food culture and super market homogenization when McDonalds ( Golden arches of gross)opened a fast food outlet at the foot of the spanish steps (Piazza di spagna) in Rome.
The movement is fast catching up the world over.Today the organization is active in 50 countries and has a worldwide membership of over 80,000. Care to join the movement? It’s not an easy option though, even as more people are opting to join the slow food movement in a nation known for its fast food.
Song for this post : Radiohead – The Tourist ( which has a chorus…”Hey man slow down, slow down/Idiot slow down, slow down”)
