I was just scrolling the google search to see the status of children dying of malnutrition or hunger and was shocked to find the following beginning brief:
836 million Indians survive on less than Rs. 20 (less than half-a-dollar) a day. Over 20 crore Indians will sleep hungry tonight. 10 million people die every year of chronic hunger and hunger-related diseases.

Only eight percent are the victims of hunger caused by high-profile earthquakes, floods, droughts and wars. However, if we go further ahead and search for statistics of the adivasi population or children, the situation is more horrific. Why to go to the far distant villages of the rural belt of India for finding hunger starved or malnourished children dying or suffering of hunger related issues but anguishingly you can find them loitering in and around the huge dustbins and their shelters either eagerly searching foodstuffs or earning petty amount for themselves and their hapless families living in abject poverty by keenly segregating the rubbish.

There are hundreds, even thousands of children working as ragpickers in and around Delhi devoid of basic health facilities segregating degradable and bio degradable wastes, having a totally bleak future thus remaining completely illeterate and finally dying due to malnutrition as a ragpicker only.

Many of them die on roadsides shivering in acute cold during winters or extreme summer due to heat strokes. Who cares? Now see the topsy tervy development, the news flows in that the nearing super star of Bollywood and son of former Cricket captain late Nawab Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan is gifting his son Taimur a swanky car of whopping Rs 1.3 crore on Children’s day. What a grand gesture from a traditional rich prince turned dynastic actor son of the Nawab/ cricketer father n popular actress mother.

Undoubtedly extraordinarily, lucky are Taimurs’ the excessively pampered new borns. Good luck to him but what about millions of those who leave every thing to their fate? May all live long, healthily and prosperously. AMEN.

No one can deny that there is no hindu terror says Kamal Hassan in one of his column
The TV channels are abuzz with one more TRP enhancing story pertaining to a comment of Bollywood veteran actor Kamal Haasan in one of his regular columns’ of a Southern periodical mentioning that ,”no one can deny that there is no hindu terror,” inviting number of heated and angry protests from the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party asking the actor to seek public apology for his highly objectionable remarks in his regular column castigating serious aspersion on Hindu community without any credible evidence in support of his derogatory statement.

The former Janata Party (S) president Subramanium Swamy who’s now in BJP and himself a knowledgeable man on law apart from being a professor as well, Subramaniam lashed out at the actor trying to become a politician, Kamal Hasan, calling him a pompuous idiot with no logics while giving bite to one of the television channels.

Extremely furious and angry over the actor’s anti hindu remarks the fire brand leader who’s popularly known as the Nehru Gandhi family’s ardent opponent having filed a case of alleged misappropriation of funds of National Herald against Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Subramaniam Swamy accused Kamal Hasan as a man without morality and ethics whether they are the financial or personal morals and demanded that NIA should step in to investigate him for his baseless, concoted and fabricated charges against Hindu community. Subramanium Swamy sad he has no thought in his head.

The actor is a morally corrupt person, and is without personal or financial morals. Selfish motives are always a driving force for him added Swamy. Swamy expressed the concern that the hindu population is decreasing every year and said that it would be better if Kamal Hasan converts himself to a Muslim.

He was replying to the reporter of Times Now channel after being asked to give his reaction to the actor’s anti hindu remarks in one of his newspaper columns. It may be recalled that the prominent celluloid actor of the South and Hindi films Kamal Hasan has been in the front page news recently when he met AAP CHIEF and Delhi CM Arvind Kejrival and discussed possibilities of his entry in active politics but showed his primary interest in joining Super star Rajnikant’s party in case he forms his new political formulation in the South.

It is however not clear as to in what context the actor has expressed this view point in his newspaper column as I have not gone through it till the time of writing this news item.
