What is hunger?
According to politics, humanitarian aid, and the social sciences, hunger is the need for a sustained period of nutrients for a person’s physical or financial capabilities to eat enough food.
*Hunger in India* .
India has been facing serious hunger crisis for a long time. As per the Global Hunger Index report 2020 which was released by Washington-based International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), India has slipped down to 101th rank among 116 countries based on three key indicators:-
(i) Prevalence of wasting and stunting among children under 5 years of age
(ii) Child mortality under 5
(iii) The proportion of undernourished in the population.
*Causes of hunger in India.*
✓Failures to invest in agriculture, supporting small farms, to name a few are some of the causes which have stunted the smooth sail of India, a fast-growing economy in the world. The rate of malnutrition is worse in India.
✓Failure of food schemes. A disparity between the real execution of schemes for the greater good of citizens.
✓The inefficient management of food available. According to a report by the United Nations, 40% of the total produce is either lost or wasted.
✓Poverty is one of the most critical factors that contribute to the prevailing hunger crisis in India. The shocking fact remains that two-thirds of the people living in India are poverty-stricken.
*How can we improve?*
India needs a practical multi-dimensional approach to win over the food crisis.
✓Government must ensure that small and marginal farmers can grow more crops in a year.
✓The government should be implemented schemes to reach the lowest strata of uneducated, unaware and unemployed citizens like One Nation, One Ration Card.
✓Last but not least people contribute to provide food to needed people.
