Feeding mouths, fighting hunger!

Hunger, by far, is the number one case of deaths in the world. Aids, Cancer, etc follow it. There are 820 million hungry people in the world which is a very sad figure, and the worst is one- third of this number is the population from India. There are millions who die of hunger every year. There are again millions who sleep due to hunger every night. What worse could it get ? This problem really needs to sorted out and we as social human beings can do our best to serve the society and the needy people.

The main question that arises before everyone of us is that "Can we fight the cause and eradicate hunger ?"

Well, the answer is YES, and yes because people like you and me can be the first possible ones to fight this issue and make the world a better place to live in. You and me can fight it out with the organisations that have been long fighting the cause and serving millions of children in the country.

A little donations from us can bring the change in the society by working along with these governmental and non-governmental organisations. It is essential that we our least bit to bring in the changes in the society and work for its upliftment in the best possible ways.

We humans are rational and provided with those beautiful brains, and the best beautiful thing that we can do with the brain is think good for the humanity and do the best for it and make efforts to eliminate hunger and poverty from the society of India.

Let's not take this problem of hunger and poverty to the future years and solve it out right here. We all can do our bit by creating awareness among the elites and educated ones about the best of initiatives that can be taken to eradicate hunger.

Another could be to make donations to the organisations such as those of Akshay Patra Foundation that does a marvelous job in eradicating hunger from the classrooms by bringing them the quality and hygienic food. A good care is taken to serve a nutritious diet to the children in the schools. This has led to reduction in the dropout rates in the number of children from the schools which is ultimately is a boon for our country raising the literacy percentage.

Less or more, efforts have to be made from everyone like you and me, to fight the evils like hunger and poverty from the society.

Eradication of Hunger - #BlogToFeedAChild

It was my first day at hostel back in 2006 and as soon as I entered my mess, there were so many posters and notices planted on the walls at several places. 

The poster read "Do not waste food. There are millions who do not get to see it." And, I was the one getting to see it, watch it, have it, enjoy it and do a lot with it. Till that date were the lessons being taught in the school and home, but as kids we generally do not pay attention to them. Not that I wasted food earlier, but the poster had a huge impact on me, the reason being, I was told that now since I am going live a hostel- life, I should be a responsible child and pay attention to the important details in life. And, right there after seeing the poster, there were lots of thoughts ran down the street of my mind. It was happening because I had the hostel food for the first time in life, and I never thought much about food, for I was always pampered and served whatever and wherever I wished to.

I made a promise to myself, I shall never waste any food and shall always love and respect it as I am one of the lucky one to have it at my disposal as and when I need it. Since that day, I have almost never and ever wasted food, and my family is proud of this habit.

It is essential that we pay importance to little things in life, and larger ones fall in place itself. Why I mentioned this statement is that, in order to have a fulfillment of the dream of a well nourished, educated and well developed India, we must start from the base level where the least and the best possible as the responsible citizens we could and should do is elimination of classroom hunger and ensuring their proper education as this would remove the poverty from all levels of society.

Firstly, it is important to have a will to contribute to the welfare of the society and make the best possible efforts to be a part of it. Like Akshay Patra Organisation and several other NGO's, we can do our little bit by donating and promoting these great initiatives.

Secondly, ensuring proper awareness for the poor masses so that they send their kids to school and get them educated, with the promising meals like those provided through Mid-Day Meal Scheme and Akshay Patra organisation.

Thirdly, organizing activities for children where they shall be eager to make their way to classrooms, and have their meals and education simultaneously. There must be certain kind of motivation developed into these kids so that instead of skipping school and classes, they are excited to join and learn from them. 

There must be obsession fused into the children in-order to shoot out this menace of hunger from the country. Let's not just watch it from a distance and instead make efforts in order to contribute in making changes to the society in whatever manner possible.


Hunger Elimination from Classroom!

I fairly remember the statement so well that my GrandFather usually used to quote, given by Mahatma Gandhiji, "There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread."

For once, can you imagine for how long one can stay without food, getting no proper nourishment and going hungry for the longest possible duration. Well, it is difficult for us to even ponder ourselves into that situation. Here, 'us' refers to those who can at the least afford to read this article. 

Starvation is worst possible menace as I could think over all the possible threats to human in the world. There dwells no peace of mind, no desires of living, no adequacy of life without the  purpose of living. What does a person is here for in the midst of all this? This does no good to humanity and society at a large.

Making sense to all this, there is a lot of population of India, especially the poor and poverty ridden children, for whom either the meals or education are the two options among which the choice is to be made. With no doubts, a human would first look to meet the hunger and the body requirements which would ultimately get him/her drifted to other matters of importance.

It is important to feed the children of this country in order to ensure their higher enrollment in schools and give their contribution to education and do things of importance that would bring a change in the growth and development of not only the individual but also the society at a large.

It is essential that the educated and well-paid masses of the country contribute a little to the society for the elimination of classroom hunger and make the best of efforts to pave the children of this country on the imagined path of 100% literate India. 

The great initiative by Akshay Patra Organisation making their best possible efforts to collect funds from governments and other organisations for giving the best quality food to the hunger-struck children and shifting their mindsets towards education, is laudable. Such organisations are a great boon to the society as this would eliminate the problems of beggary and poverty. This is in-turn leading to the progress of these poor masses.

A cent-percent educated India would in short time be eliminated of the grave problem of hunger and this would take them to shoot for better heights and ensure the proper growth of future generations and India.

I am going to #BlogToFeedAChild with Akshaya Patra and BlogAdda.
