On Eating aspires to create an archive of various cultures of eating that characterise the Indian subcontinent. In this most basic need that keeps us alive is art, history, politics, sociology, science, literature, poetry, and spirituality.

In this multilingual genre-agnostic journal, we will feature stories about various eating cultures in India. Our aim is to create a journal of contemporary writing about eating in English and the Indian languages (also translated into English) as well as contemporary art on the subject.

The artwork will not be illustration alone, but a commentary on the subject in its own right. We also plan to make older writing available in English translation.

On Eating will feature one long essay/story/commentary/poem/film along with new artwork every month.
