Atma Ram Singh, aged 72 years has worked for 24 years for Indian Navy as a colour painter. He has three sons well settled in Ludhiana, but he doesn’t stays with any of them.
His only problem is that he doesn’t get the freedom with them which he enjoys staying alone.
He lost his wife way back in 2003 and when I asked him, “Why do you work, you must be getting pension?”, he said- “agar baitha rahega to jaldi zindagi pura ho jayega” (If I will keep sitting I will die earlier). He is very thankful to the government for granting him his current job.
I asked him, “Don’t you feel the loss of dignity, sweeping the floors everyday?” to which he replied-“koi kaam chota ya Bada nahi hota” (no work is big or small). I admire the window through which he sees life.

Hunger pangs in the middle of the night? Too hungry, but too lazy to cook? Want a quick snack? For all of this MAGGI is our saviour in yellow armour.
But have you ever given a thought to what makes MAGGI a hit among people of all age groups and across the locations? How is the inimitable taste of MAGGI Masala produced? What are the different measures taken to ensure that the MAGGI you consume is not just a treat for your tongue but is also of great quality?
Well, since MAGGI has been in our kitchens for the last 35 years, they are now giving us a chance to see their kitchens as part of the initiative “From our kitchen to your kitchen”.
In “From our kitchen to your kitchen,” the consumers will be taken on a virtual tour through a four-part digital video series, and a dedicated website. Not only this, but MAGGI has also brought onboard the famous duo of Rocky and Mayur, veteran foodies. Their panache and experience add ‘masala’ to the consumer’s virtual journey.
In their industrial scale kitchens, the preparation of MAGGI Noodles starts with the mixing of flour, water, etc. The dough is then passed through a series of rollers to form thin sheets. These sheets are cut into fine noodle strands, which are then waved, folded and cooked to form the noodle cake we are so familiar with.
Feeling hungry yet?
The noodle cakes are then sealed and packaged along with the Masala Tastemaker sachets.
Today, the world is moving ahead at a breakneck pace, and it is reflected in how we choose what we eat. MAGGI has opened its doors to the consumers through this transparency initiative. The aspect of accountability also comes in the picture and MAGGI makes sure that through and certified quality checks are put in place.
If you want to see how MAGGI is made, or if you want to hear from the Quality Assurance officers about the various quality checks while Mayur and Rocky be their jolly selves, you can watch the engrossing video series. Also, for the more curious of us, MAGGI has explained engagingly in the videos, interesting details, and nuances regarding spices, process, cooking, nutrition, and everything that MAGGI-lovers desire to know.
MAGGI understands that the consumer of today is very informed and highly conscious of what he/she is consuming. Respecting the same sentiment, through this initiative, MAGGI wants to give its consumers insight into what they are eating and to provide for deeper conversations and connection with the brand.
