Kill Hunger (भूख मिटाओ)

Kill Hunger (भूख मिटाओ)




Millions of Indians were facing hardships and after effects of Covid-19 first wave. They were trying to come out, and before they can stand out, the second wave shattered them so hard that Dal-Chawal became poor people’s oxygen to survive.

The second wave is an addition of crisis. With millions of families already in deep distress due to the first wave, we must look beyond the issue of oxygen and pay attention to abject hunger among the millions of people in the country.

Let’s start with the unfolding disaster, and contrast it to March and April of 2020. In Covid-19 first wave, lack of food and rations was the big visible crisis. But this visibility was limited to migrants whom we could see and till the time they were in the larger cities, we were able to provide them food. As soon as they moved 100 km away and even further into villages, they were out of our radar. As soon as they became invisible, their needs were largely ignored by governments, agencies and the media.

The first wave of the pandemic was proof that Indian villages — comprising more than half of the country’s population — are not really part of development agendas, and even in times of crisis they come last, after the needs of the big cities have been attended to. Farmers are merely seen as providers of our food, and distressed farmers as migrant workers or labour in our factories, buildings and homes.

We remember several conversations with many corporates, HNI peoples and funding agencies last year where their entire funding focus was on the distribution of ration kits in the metro cities. It was hard to convince them that the problem extended outside these large urban centres — that even a Faridabad, Ghaziabad is a part of the NCR — leave alone districts in rural areas. We would often tell them that problems are not just in Mumbai, Delhi, Gurgaon and Gachibowli — our offices might be there — but the larger problems are being faced in Giridih, Midnapur and Gadchiroli or in any remote areas of the country. The large value funds were available more for the cities than for rural India.

Now in second wave, the story is slightly different

The second wave has brought on a health crisis. The conversations, therefore, are about oxygen cylinders, concentrators, ventilators, ICU beds, drugs and so on. In the absence of proper infrastructure and interventions, we have become dependent on each other during this wave, contacting friends and families on WhatsApp to save our loved ones. What we are forgetting, however, is that there is has been suffering and stress for more than a year now, with families already in deep distress due to lack of livelihoods, reduced income, no access to sufficient food.

Hunger is a continuous disaster for large parts of our population

In the second wave, most states imposed lockdowns. Governments have been in denial about the distress--stating that there has been no national lockdown. If we had learnt lessons from the national lockdown, we would have been able to alleviate the distress during the second wave to a large extent. We should have provided similar food security measures for ration and non-ration card holders. Unfortunately, it seems no lessons were learnt to tackle the second wave.

PMGKAY was restarted by the central government [to last] until June [2021] and then extended until Diwali for ration card holders, but it has not restarted the Atma Nirbhar scheme for non-ration cards, who are often the poorest and most marginalised.

But for most lower-income families in cities or villages, their oxygen is dal chawal.

They don’t have anywhere to access food because the issue of hunger has been completely ignored. Not just in villages, but in cities as well. Many of the migrant workers who had come back from the villages after the first lockdown was lifted can no longer afford to go back. They have stayed back despite not having proper work, and hence no food. But this time around, there is no arrangement for food and, unlike last year, most do not even have the savings to make it through this wave
