“Briyani For the Hungry” – Dr Pillai (Baba)’s Hunger Relief Project in Goa

January 2, 2011


Namaste everyone,

Dr Pillai (Baba) has always put foremost priority on the alleviation of poverty / on feeding the poor and that is why He set up the Tripura Foundation (


Chicken Briyani

A Briyani Dish

When He was in Goa, Dr Pillai (Baba) came up with the revolutionary “Briyani For the Hungry” Food Project to feed the very poor families of Goa with Briyani. Briyani is regarded as a rich-man’s food – it is a nutritive rice dish that has been marinated for long hours with spices and meats (such as chicken, lamb, goat or fish) or vegetables and served with a variety of tasty accompaniments such curries and chutneys.


The initial “Briyani for the Hungry” Project will start on 3 January 2011 (which is Hanuman’s Birthday) and 100 poor families will be served with food packets of Briyani. 

Dr Pillai (Baba)’s project is revolutionary because He wants to give the very best for the very least. These poor families have never experienced such good food. On a daily basis, their diet usually consists of a gruel of watery rice and a few vegetables. Giving the poor families Briyani will give them an opportunity to eat food that they would never imagine being able to afford. 

In time, Dr Pillai (Baba)’s vision is to expand the “Briyani for the Hungry” Project to other parts of India starting with Chennai.
