Have you Ever Thought About the Food Consumed by 80 Crore People?
One must look at the food consumed by those with excellent financial status. There you will find everything. The kitchen will be as big as the house of a family living in a slum. The platter will include all kinds of food - rice, dal, roti, and vegetables. Non-vegetarian dishes like meat and fish will also be available. When you are looking carefully at all this, at the same time, think about those who are given 5 kg wheat and 5 kg rice under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana (PMGKY). Think about those 80 crore people who would go through starvation if they did not get this much government help. How much food do these 80 crore people need, and how much do they get?
