impressions on my mind coasting through life's journey...

India a Food Donor, really?

Dr. Bhaskar Dasgupta makes an interesting point in his article.

He explains why India inspite of having problems such as malnutrition and starvation in it's own country has gone from a net recipient to a net donor in the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). While we make enough to feed everyone, we do not have good systems in place to make sure it reaches everyone.

Dweep Chanana makes the argument that this is not aid for itself but by participating at world level India is trying to gain certain secondary benefits such as leverage in strategic places.

At the end of the day whatever the reasons be it is still a sad day when people die of malnutrition and starvation in a country which is going through an economic boom.
