Question

Vistara on board service better then Jet Airways. Is Jet Airways gound handling better then Vistara? Is it just a matter of time Vistara becomes India's No. 1 full service Airline? Your thoughts.

Posted By: Manish Sharma  |  Posted On: 19 Oct 2018  |  City: NEW DELHI

Answer

 Hard to say. I can't judge anything other than the Premiere service where Vistara is far ahead of Jet once the plane takes off. On the ground, however, it is not in the same league. 
 

Question

Please consider doing a piece on Pastas. I am not sure in which Olive oil / oil it is most likely to test the best.

Posted By: Manish Sharma  |  Posted On: 19 Oct 2018  |  City: NEW DELHI

Answer

 I did one years ago. But I don't eat much pasta these days so I am not sure I am fully qualified to do a new piece. 
 

Question

Were you surprised to hear about Jaswant Singh & family moving to Congress. this was unimaginable a decade back.
Its obvious that Jaswant Singh contributed strongly to both the BJP & the Govt in the roles he had
and its very unfair the way he was treated
Why do you think this transpired the way it did?

Posted By: Biren  |  Posted On: 18 Oct 2018  |  City: Boston

Answer

 I think he had two problems. Firstly, he was a misfit in Modi's BJP, anyway. And secondly, his son, who has joined the Congress, has always had a liberal outlook that is more in tune with the Congress'. 

Question

have you watched any Indian food programs of late? Why are they so subpar compared to their western programming. It cant be just the budgets alone no?

Posted By: Huma  |  Posted On: 14 Oct 2018  |  City: Kuala Lumpur

Answer

  I suspect that the budgets are crucial though, to be honest, I haven't watched much Indian food programming recently. Netflix has taken over all my food show watching. 

Question

Hi Vir, I read your fantastic article on DC vs Marvel. I thought you might be interested to know that in the video game space also Marvel has defeated DC with its Spider-Man game. Couple of years ago, DC dominated in the video game space with its batman games

 Thank you. That's really interesting. 

Question

I recently saw an ep of chef's table based on a French chef Alian Passard who owns a 3 Michelin starred restaurant in France. It was roughly based upon how he gave up serving meat in the restaurant & reinvented the whole menu based on veggies&fruits

I believe I have an intrinsic love for meat & several times wondered why he took the decision. In times of veganism and vegism, & top chef's deciding to take meat off their shelves, it makes me rethink my love for meat
Your take on this issue?

Posted By: Gagan  |  Posted On: 09 Oct 2018  |  City: New Delhi

Answer

 It's an old episode. Meat is back on Passard's menu. 
 
That didn't last very long. 

Question
