Actuallythe term hunger itself is very confusing and means different things to different organisations and policymakers First and foremostit evokes images of the extreme discomfort associated with lack of food On the other handthe United Nations Development Programme defines it as a condition in which people lack the basic food intake to provide them with the energy and nutrients for fully productive lives The GHI takes into accountin equal weightsundernourishmentchild underweight and child mortality The indicatorundernourishmentis based on the share of the population with insufficient (relative to a norm) calorie intake Child underweight is defined in terms of wasting and stunted growth and child mortality in terms of death ratesboth reflecting an unhealthy environment It is much too simplistic to assumewithout evidencethat either being underweight or mortality is due to undernutrition (signifying deficiencies in energyproteinessential vitamins and minerals) Child stunting and wastingand mortalityis equally if not more likely to be due to infections and illnesses due to insanitary conditions that result in inadequate absorption of nutrients These in turn may be linked to inadequate maternal health or childcare practicesinadequate access to health servicessafe water and toilet facilities Thussupply of food may be a necessary but not a sufficient condition for the improvement of a part of the hunger index The GHI is too simplistic and does not take into account the complexities of the problembut sways opinion-makers in developing countries It is already a much accused and abused index which has lost respectability because of its various deficienciesincluding the weighting priority and database used The index is also prone to dramatic change in case of unreliable data of even a single partial indicator For examplethe cause of such a dismal GHI for India is mainly data on child underweightwhich is the worstnext only to Timor-Leste To improve Indias ranking on the GHIwe have to identify the causes of stunting and wasting and to eliminate them Thus the solution is to improve the supply/ availability of clean-safe drinking water; improved sanitationpreferably piped sewerage systemseptic tanks or pit latrine with slabsto avoid the outbreak of waterborne diseases like diarrhoeadysentery and cholera; and improved personal hygiene According to the WHOless than 30 per cent of households had access to piped drinking water and nearly 60 per cent of Indians still practised open defecation in 2006 We also need better governance of medical facilities in rural areasproviding more effective primary health centres for maternal and childcare Even with respect to foodthough per capita availability of cereals has improvedthat of pulses has declined from 69 grammes per day in 1961 to 39 grammes in 2011 Pumping free cereals into a leakage-prone system will not improve even calorie intake as these have a near-zero price elasticity and low income elasticity The need is to directly address these serious issues and not the imposition of a simplistic FSB that is driven more by ideology than pragmatic problem-solving As there is no free luncha huge hike in subsidy would either lead to higher taxes or higher debt or lower capital expenditure It also detracts attention from the really hungry who constitute less than 2 per cent of the population but are dispersed across the country in remotehilly locations and need to be painstakingly identified and reached directly Virmaniformer chief economic advisorGovernment of

Varuga nilayana aatchi tharuga ("welcome daughter of Pandit Nehru give a stable regime") to buttress how long-standing the tie-up between the two parties was The phrase was used by DMK’s rivals to corner it for joining hands with Congress after a bitter episode of confrontation with that party during Emergency of 1975-77 He said the working of both DMK and Congress is "proof" of a spirit of give and take and reciprocation His comment assumes significance as senior Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram had said that DMK had given seats which were not sought by Congress Congress sources said Chidambaram was busy in campaign in Alangudi and hence could not attend the election rally in Chennai on Thursday at Island Grounds Karunanidhi recalled how former Prime Minister

other As reported by The Times of India on Friday MNS chief Raj Thackeray will be "interviewing" NCP’s Sharad Pawar in Pune on 3 January and the duo is expected to talk about the politics of the state caste-based issues farmer suicides etc Given that both Pawar and Thackeray have been critical of the BJP-led state government they are also expected to launch an offensive against Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ administration The getting together of Pawar and Thackeray would worry Fadnavis especially since his ally Shiv Sena is also threatening to walk out of the alliance The BJP weakened in the Legislative Assembly without the support of Sena isn’t likely to appreciate any possible mutual admirationbetween NCP and MNS Sharad Pawar and Raj Thackeray Meanwhile the MNS cadre too is said to be "baffled" about the new-found affection between Pawar and Thackeray The Times of India report recalled that Pawar had ticked Thackeray off by publicly stating that "those who rise at noon" can’t make good politicians But the fact that they are willing to share the dais today means a possible political realignment in Maharashtra may be on the cards "This (Pawar’s criticism of Thackeray) was back in 2006 Eleven years later Pawar saheb is willing to share space with Raj saheb for a public interview Surely Pawar saheb has something up his sleeve" a senior NCP functionary was quoted as saying in the report The NCP was in an alliance with the Congress in Maharashtra which they ruled for three successive terms Two days ago the two said their alliance is still strong and they would look forward to contesting the 2019 Lok Sabha elections together "We (Congress and NCP) will fight the 2019 elections as an allianceand will come to power A change is already happening in Gujarat and will soon spread to the rest of the country" former Maharashtra chief minister Ashok Chavan was quoted as saying by The Economic Times With the MNS and NCP also sharing warm vibes with each other a three-party alliance cannot be ruled out in Maharashtra with Congress NCP and MNS joining hands to battle the saffron government which is already heading for a split with Sena planning to walk out Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray’s son and the party’s youth face Aditya Thackeray was quoted by the media as saying earlier this week that it will walk out of the Fadnavis government "The Sena will quit power in one year and come back to power on its own strength (Sena president) Uddhav will decide the time when the party will quit power" Aditya said "Once that is done (the decision on quitting power
