Michelin star chef and restaurateur Vikas Khanna has been running massive food distribution drives amid the pandemic. In a recent interview, a BBC anchor enquired whether Khanna's 'sense of hunger' came from his upbringing in India. The US-based Indian chef's reply has gone viral on Twitter. Khanna told the news anchor that he was from Amritsar, where community kitchens can feed the entire city, which is why his sense of hunger is not from India but actually his beginnings in New York. He spoke about his struggle of starting out as youngster in the city of New York post the 9/11 period when getting jobs as a brown person was especially challenging.
