The right to food is a fundamental human right. How then do we account for the over 800 million food insecure people in the world of which approximately 350 million reside in India? The problem, especially in India, is often not lack of food but lack of access to it.
This book brings together the thoughts of India's foremost thinkers on the issue of food insecurity.
