The Rotten Food Figures Which Startled Me

September 3, 2010
I wrote about the millions of tons of food grain getting rotten in open in godowns and the apathy of poor man of the country, in my previous post. 

Just happened to read this article in The Times of India and was startled by the figures.  Could not help sharing with you all. Have a look.

For a nation to go ahead, one has to mix economics in the right proportions. Distributing free food is not good economics. It will hamper the farmer's will to farm and will only earn him peanuts. Free food was never an incentive to the farmers. rather, what is this issue all about? distributing rotting grains to the poor so that they will die eating them? what is to be done is to acquire land and build infrastructure and store grains more effectively
