The Food Corporation of India which is responsible for implementing the Public Distribution System Scheme faces immense problems regarding its storage facilities. The problem can be divided into two parts: 1) Wastage of Food due to poor storage facilities 2) Wastage of money due to lack of storage facilities 1a) One of the reasons for the wastage of food is that grains are not moved out of the warehouses in time and distributed. Due to this inefficiency in transporting gr...

The National Food Security Bill was signed into law on the 12th of September 2013. Its aim is to try and eradicate hunger in India by providing cereal grains at highly subsidized rates of Rs 3, Rs 2, Rs 1 per Kg for rice, wheat and millets respectively. The entitled quota is 5Kg of food grains per person per month. The bill covers 67% of the population and will provide food to about 820 million people at these subsidized rates. The major question is whether 67% of the people of I...

The midday meal scheme is an ambitious remedy the government is using to deal with the situation of education and nutrition of the children of India. Acknowledging this effort of the government, nearly 120 million children across the country make use of this scheme. However, the lackluster performance regarding the implementation of this scheme has served as a deterrent towards its use and has eclipsed the incentives of the scheme. Ignorant actions of a principal of a school in...

Though Kerala has 100% literacy rate, apt climatic conditions like abundant water and fertile soil for agriculture, the people there don’t have enough rice to eat. Why? According to the statistics, 84% of food grain comes from other states like Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, which means that, Kerala does not produce even one-fourth of the total requirement of rice. There is also a hike in the price of rice, which has increased from Rs. 12 per Kg in 2007 to Rs. 25 per Kg in 2010...

Hi, I wonder why it is so difficult to make everybody educated! Well, what do we mean by education? Is it just the ability to read, write and do some basic mathematics? Do we need schools for it? If so, why aren't people in developing countries educated with all the plans to educate their people? Is it because their government hasn't planned well or could not implement the plans? What should the people do? Can they do this on their own, can't they? I know of some people who hav...

Beggars are very common in our lives, especially in Indonesia. I don’t know what it is like in other countries, maybe it will be the same in other developing countries. Let's look at Depok, as one of the cities in West Java as it is actually very close to Jakarta. You can find beggars everywhere in the city I live. They beg in the streets, in front of the shops, and come house-to-house to get money. Beggars come in many forms of people. She or he can be a child, teenager, or...

Should we have to live in fear of the government? Should children grow up in a society which represses their rights to free speech? Of course not! Government's job, by definition, is to protect and preserve the rights of its citizens. Recently, Edward Snowden, the supposed "whistleblower" was nominated by Norwegian lawmakers for the Nobel Peace Prize. Suddenly, the whole world starts freaking out saying things that fall into one extreme or the other. You have on one hand people say...

Hello all..Here is my first time to tell and write to all of you about this theme. I have to chosen to write this theme because I hope that we can take better action for the next generations. There are so many children who can't study in school as usual. The the main problem is the mostly because of poverty within their family. But on my mind, the government is slow to start a movement for children's education, especially for poor families that cannot pay education fees. Whose fault is that? Is...
