Western countries have a history of claiming their ownership on the discoveries made in India centuries ago. Leaf plates aka pattal or dunna is the latest invention by Germany and everyone among you who are reading this right now will laugh out loud because we all are using Dunne ever since we are born.
It’s as hilarious as it gets that a German company called Leaf Republic has claimed to invent biodegradable Leaf plates after years of designing, prototyping and testing.

We indians have been making these since time immemorial. This happens when we don't give much importance to our culture and tradition. For so many years we have been following western footsteps, when we should have promoted our own culture & tradition (which is better) to them !
