In India, as of July 22, we had over 91 million metric tons of foodgrain ‘surplus’ or buffer stocks lying with the government – and the highest numbers of the world’s hungry. Talk of bloody coexistence.
The government distributes very little of that grain free, but sanctions the conversion of huge stocks of rice into ethanol – to make hand sanitiser.

Ahh, talking this makes me eligible to be labelled a Maoist and Naxalite now. I can be arrested under UAPA for harbouring anti-national thoughts.
