Last Updated: Thursday, June 21, 2012 - 11:15

Rio de Janeiro: Jayanthi Natarajan, India`s environment minister and principal interlocutor at the Earth Summit who is assisting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, it appears, has enough food for thought but little to stomach.

A vegetarian, Natarajan, who has been here since Sunday, has been longing for some good green food, which is not easy to come by in Brazil`s exciting commercial capital where some 90 heads of state and government have converged to address, among other issues, hunger and poverty in a green and sustainable manner.

"You can say India`s environment minister is longing for some good vegetarian food. Not easy," Natarajan told journalists, when asked about personal experiences during her stay in Rio.
"The last thing I want to see on my plate now is pizza and pasta," she added.
