The Mela is expected to be attended by personalities from the film world, musicians, writers and intellectuals.

The Safe Food Mela is part of a state-wide campaign and awareness program lauched by Safe Food Alliance which seeks to promote chemical-free farming and alternatives to toxic technologies like synthetic pesticides and Genetically Modified foods and educate consumers about the perils of poison on our plates and help them go organic.
