The World on Your Platter

by: Prerna Lulia, 11th Grade, Narsee Monjee College of Commerce & Economics, Mumbai, India

True inclusion is when everyone is not only invited to the table, but encouraged to contribute to the meal.

Artist Statement

The platter contains delicacies from around the globe—from vegan to meat, healthy to junk, and spicy to sweet. Yet, all of them add a unique charm, like seven colors completing a rainbow. We all may hail from different ethnicities, cultures, races, genders, but we all, without fail, require sustenance to live. Our hunger unites us. Our primal need doesn’t question diversity. Isn’t that food for thought?
