Reuters: “India’s malnutrition plight: The effects are more dire than we think “

February 19, 2013 § Leave a comment

Here is a link to my OP/ED.

November 19, 2012 was the former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s birth anniversary and to commemorate it, President Pranab Mukherjee together with celebrity Bollywood actor and UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambassador Aamir Khan will launch one of the Government of India’s most ambitious campaigns to combat malnutrition. This will mark a very important step to invest in the early childhood development of the country’s children. 

India has more malnourished children than sub Saharan Africa. The statistics are frightening and do not augur well for the country’s human development.
