A study on global food wastage by Institution of Mechanical Engineers, UK revealed that India could add Rs. 6.2 lakh crores to its economy if the losses are curbed by improving facilities. It is really sad to know that Indian government has millions to spend on aircrafts and sports but overlooks such a crucial matter at the country’s very heart itself.
Surprisingly the government alone cannot be held responsible for the cause. A lot of food is wasted at our homes too, because sometimes we tend to buy things more than it is needed. We, without realising the fact that the loud attractive advertisements are meant to attract us, end up buying those extra free products. So the next time you visit any grocery shop, be careful enough to assess the advertisement that reads 'buy two and get one free!'
