Running hand to mouth- Mid day mealIn one of the far flung area in North East India, in a Government School, when teachers announces to students that today they are going to have a Mid Day Meal, they reply back 'Is this a sick dream'? Or 'Is this some kind of joke'?
When they hear this particular word 'meal', they naturally assume that they will have a great time filling their stomach to the fullest so that they could be happy. Do you like meal?
Well... Who can survive without meal and who doesn't like meal. Everybody do... But, how often do you realize that some people and children's starve for food even in this century. Can you believe it? Here, I am referring to POVERTY as one of the major factor responsible.
Coming to our point...
Why mid day meals are not properly implemented at Govt. Schools in India, especially in the remote towns, and far flung areas? The higher authority should refer to MDM Rules 2001 and 2015.
The Govt. Schools are showing negligence to this particular programme or scheme.
