Where is the problem?

Hunger is the worst weapon of mass destruction in the world which does not kill soldiers, but innocent children

This year’s global hunger index, developed by the Washington DC-based International Food Policy Research Institute, says that global hunger remains at a “serious” level. India has ranked 67th, two ranks below that of last year, in the index as one of the most hungry nations, eight ranks below Pakistan and only three ranks above Bangladesh. The index ranks countries on a 100-point scale — from the “no hunger” score of 0 to the “most hunger” of 100 — combining three indicators: the undernourished as a percentage of the population, the proportion of underweight children below the age of five and the mortality rate of children under five. Values between 20 and 29.9 are “alarming”. That is where India stands, with a score of 23.7.

If India is 'progressing' & growing', why are we slipping behind on this index?

Even if we are to question the accuracy of this report, the fact that we are in the lower bottom means something is wrong somewhere. Is that 'somewhere' anywhere near us?

Nurturing to Deserve

By Nurturing something, you earn the right to reap the benefits from it.

Nurturing a Plant, a Family or a Nation is all equally challenging and interesting. Choose the one that gives you Happiness today. 

Directional Relevance

Wanting Things is a form of Misery.
Happiness in Western Culture is about wanting something & getting it. But Craving is never ending. So, as long as we look at Western Culture as the model of Growth, our sufferings will persist. And to change our direction of Growth in today's globalized world is like steering a 40 feet truck for a U-turn.  It can happen when all beings including Humans can collectively work towards it!
Happy Ugadi 2017!
