Hunger, Starvation and Aadhaar
Global Hunger Index 2017 is a grim reminder of the huge disconnect between India's relatively high levels of growth and its low ranks on human development
It took the death of 11-year-old Santoshi Kumari from Jharkhand’s Simdega district to remind the country that hunger and starvation of young children is still a reality in India. This was not the first such incident. Last month, three brothers in Karnataka also died under similar circumstances. The children died not only due to lack of food, but also because of the apathy of a government which has put all its effort in denying the story and framing flimsy excuses rather than addressing the issue.
