  • Dear Stakeholders,

    Dear Stakeholders, Yes,creating access for FOOD should be viewed in three ways as: @ At the stage of production: It is necessary to provide water, seeds, fertilizers, machinery, loan / subsidy support and other guidance to the farmers with true concept of LAB to LAND for the production of food grains in terms of both quantity and quality. @ At the stage of Storage and Marketing: After production, the producers should get better access for storage and to sell in the market with out middle men and thus to provide benefit both to the producers as well as to the buyers. @ At the stage of Distribution: When the grains were procured, the same need be stored with in suitable environment and later to distribute to the needy through open market and PDS. At present, most of the food crisis are due to good policies with poor implementation. This crisis should not be viewed in isolation. The comprehensive approach / strategy covering the above mentioned three phases certainly results for better production, storage, marketing and distribution and finally to control the food crises in terms of both quantity and quality. WATER is the key natural resource which is the basic need for improving the Food production and thus to work for the development of the people as well as the community. Tuning to the concept of Raite Raju (Farmer is the KING)and Agriculture is the backbone of our country, we all need to work for the comprehensive strategies which finally works for better FOOD Security. Looking forward for better approaches / strategies both for production and distribution and thus to minimize the FOOD crisis..... with thanks

  • The fact that you have just

    The fact that you have just two or three states who have been successful in reaching food to the poor calls for either drastic reform or admission that the PDS is a failure. Can we change the nature of people or governments in India?

  • The whole situation about

    The whole situation about reaching the food security moves around the people ONLY. They are:
    @ the producers,
    @ the consumers
    @ the makers
    @ the implementors
    @ the monitors / auditors
    .... it is the people who has to dictate terms and conditions to get their rights for better living with sustainabiltiy and quality...

    So we all need to educate & empower the people to get their share as a RIGHT
