How not to waste food grains?



How not to waste food grains?

It is a harsh reality that a large section of India’s populace goes to bed without proper meals every day. If they could manage bread, there is no Sabzi on them. If they get Daal Roti there is no milk or any standard diet for their children. This is not the situation in villages alone, people in metropolitan cities too are facing similar situation.    

If we go by the data, the Global Hunger Index drawn up by the International Food Policy Research Institute says that half of India’s children are malnourished, a record worse than the world’s symbol for deprivation, sub-Saharan Africa. India is ranked 66th out of 88 countries in the Index. Moreover World Food Programme report suggests that more than 455 million Indians survive on US$ 1.25 ((Rs 56) approximately a day or less.

The other side of the fact that several million tones of the food grains is rotting in different part of the country, thanks to the mismanagement of the government agencies.  Of the 59 million tonnes of grain stored by the FCI and state agencies across India, 42 million tonnes is in covered buildings. Grain stored under tarpaulin has been rising. It was 9.4 million tonnes in 2008; 16 million tonnes in 2009 and 17.8 million tonnes in 2010.

We invite our readers to suggest the government and its agencies as how not to waste precious food grains and how these grains could be utilized to feed poor people in the country. Send your view with your full address in not more than 200 words at
