A society gives away its true nature by the way it treats its children I believe. Indian Government started a project, years ago, to provide underprivileged kids with mid-day meals.

That became a dark stain on every thinking Indians conscience I believe. Those who read the news will sadly agree with the pessimists that Indian society has shown all possible methods by which adults can rob little children of their food even if someone else is paying for that.

There are full-fledged rackets of the grain and other ingredients of the meal especially the fuel, apart from that the food is often cooked in lethal surroundings, where deadly creatures can fall in it and get cooked and served, or the ingredients can be replaced by lethal things by mistake, or shower of rain can make kids go back home hungry.

We should remember one thing, quite often this is the only square meal these kids were supposed to have away from their overcrowded, too poor households even that can be stolen! If we think of human greed our souls will shudder with horror.

In this one case at-least, we can’t blame the politicians, leaders, ministers- we are the ones to be blamed, the entire society because we steal the food, directly or indirectly. By doing the act or allowing it to happen.

    1. Our, business friendly parties, always say they want to cut red tape and government is hampering business in what they do best (raking in profits). But who is supervising the supervisors. In a poor country, with a free market mentality, were a bribe can facilitate some action, often the wrong action too. Dear Stewart, in an ideal world your advise is the right one and I would say the same.

  1. We all have heard of the poisoning of the school meals case. It is horrible and I’m frusterated hearing similar cases all the time. It is not the ideal world we think it is.

  2. What a shame for children to be abused. It breaks my heart. I will pray that our God, Jehovah, Jesus, will intervene to protect the children. Blessings to you, Trisha, for having the courage to speak out.

  3. I feel so proud of you to bravely talk about these horrific atrocities against the innocent, so that more and people learn about the truth and something can be done to stop the future mishaps. Bravo! My friend.
