I am not here to discuss the statistics of poverty or how and where we waste so much food because we all had enough of this and we the educated professionals and non-professionals have enough knowledge of the similar.
All I am here to ask you one question- “DO YOU HAVE EXTRA”
Millions rather I must say billions across the world are living in poverty and below the poverty line. I really do not know what the difference between below and above poverty line is because in my eyes poverty is poverty. The fire of belly makes you do everything from theft, murder, prostitution or name any act on earth where you need to get impervious to the harsh reality of world and ready to sell your SOUL.  When you are left forlorn on earth to explore and only you can help yourself and you have only two ways: Accept it or leave it and then who doesn’t want to live? Does anyone want to die on earth? Fear of dying is I believe the biggest fear on earth.
It leads to biggest crimes and gruesome activities like physical and sexual exploitation, violence, epidemics, uneducated and deprived population which burdens the shoulder of not only the country but also the mankind.
We all who are blessed by almighty on earth with all the basic necessities on earth and sleep with our stomach full often tend to forget the fact that billions outside are unfed and hence not being able to sleep. The constant veils of hunger pangs only add to their tease and misery. We do not mind leaving extra in our plates if we do not like something or leaving food  in our plate when we are not in a mood to eat something as well as we do not mind throwing them away  in garbage at times.
So- “DO WE HAVE EXTRA”?  Yes indeed we have and if we utilize it properly and improve our habits which we are always reluctant to change just because it demands to be out of comfort zone we can definitely contribute our bit to ease down their misery.
Ø  If you have children start teaching the importance of food to them right from their initial days of upbringing so that they respect the food and think twice before they waste later on in their life.
Ø  In case you have accumulated some food which needs to be disposed off then please collect and deliver it to the needy whenever you come across because in India we do not have any dearth for the similar.
Ø  Stop disposing them in plastic bags rather dispose them in the nearby corners so that stray animals can have their share and they do not gulp down the plastic bags and then later on die with painful cancer and other disease. In this way they will also stop spreading disease further as well.
Ø  Try to donate food often as possible to NGOs and other social abodes.
So DO YOU HAVE EXTRA? Then please contribute and pass on to others to create parity of distribution. Feed a mouth today and collect prayers for tomorrow. Donate not because you have to do some extra but because “YOU HAVE EXTRA”.
