Despite all the fears that that Mumbai is turning into a more parochial place, the city remains relatively cosmopolitan in its street food, which comes from all over the country. Despite this, politics is sometimes an ingredient of the snacks that the city loves so much. For instance, the Shiv Sena has attempted to provide employment for its cadres by usurping space on the pavements by helping them set up vada pav stalls.

Daane Daane Pe...,a 30-minute documentary by students at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences in 2013 (including Scroll reporter Mridula Chari), uses interviews and animation to pick at the notion that food can belong to one person or another.

On Monday, the film won the silver award in the Student Category at the Indian Documentary Producers Association in 2015.
