DO YOU HAVE EXTRA?




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”.
PLEASE DO NOT WASTE WHEN YOU HAVE EXTRA!!!

  4. Yes!

    After a long time read this kind of blog post. Loved it. Mani you are really good blogger indeed I can say a good person on earth who think about poor people. If every rich people or who survive them selves and "Have Extra" can help who really need it. If so then no one will fight on earth and every where we can see the love for each other.

    I know every people will think that like me. But no one start to do in practically. Even I can't every time. I had done some social activities locally and anonymously. But not every time. We people rush towards money, and just to fulfill our wish only....

  7. A thought provoking post. Rather than statistical investigations we should start acting. And the actions can begin from small initiatives as well. I admired your this very post which is so emphatic, while your posts on your other blog is emphatic in other tender way. :)

  8. I agree with u here that majority of population on earth is living in dire conditions... we all r among the blessed ones who have a good life.

    In a way we all can manage to have lil 'Extra' in our lives.. but problem is that we all speak, discuss, write even think about it almost all the time, but when it comes to really doing it, we prefer that someone else should take the initiative. I count myself in such kind of people too...
    but from today I'll try if not everyday than someday I can take time out for those in need :)

    lovely read Mani !!

  9. I often talk to people about corruption and other reasons we have failed to build the country we want to live in...
    I often say, I give a damn to corruption... No matter what they do they are filling one house maybe only theirs... What I hate more is wastage, every year tonnes of food grains are degraded by poor stocking practices...
    We need to check wastage!

  10. Comendable thoughts Mani. In fact the world has no lack. We have in surplus but it is just not distributed well and is rather wasted more. keep it up

  11. Its bitter truth , we in the 21st century talk about science n all but when it comes to the poverty index ..all mouth shuts down to make the poorer suffer even more . I think what is needed is the governance , food is in abundance ..but not getting to the deserve ppl ..

    It has to be a Individual approach how one can contribute to the people's good who are underprivileged ...All require what we Call "Dhrid Echaa-Shakti " ..to make it possible ..if its not be initiated now ..then when ..why there is so much of a difference ..when we all born the same way ..so y such a difference ..just because ..one doesn't have the ..resources ..then who is responsible its the policy of govt which also ...makes it tougher ..

    There should be an Exemption from Education fees ..till 12th grade at least..then it will be upto the child how he/she goes about their future thereafter...

    There has to be ..control on Pvt edu firm on the fee structuring which is becoming more of a paisa vasool industry.

    Food is the birth right of a child , when he is born he cries for it ..it don't mean he is made to cry rest of life for it.

    It's upto us how we set the examples for the next gen to follow... take only that much which suffice your need ..and don't waste it.

    Nice post. :)
