Indians waste as much food as the whole of United Kingdom consumes!From the above statement, it may seem that we Indians are from the lands of Rajas and Maharajas. So each soul in our country must be stuffed with extra food and therefore we all are wasting a whopping Rs 50,000 crores worth of produced food every year!
But, welcome to reality, even in as early as 2013, 20 crore Indians went to sleep hungry on any given night. And come 2017, India has been ranked 100 out of 117 countries on the Global Hunger Index, behind China (29th rank), Nepal (72), Myanmar (77), Sri Lanka (84) and Bangladesh (88). Even North Korea ranks 93rd while Iraq is at 78th position.
Such is the state of affairs in our country. Who is responsible? We are. Who is going to correct the situation? We are.
