Global hunger index - Our ranking fell ; your thoughts?

At 107th rank, we are lower than srilanka, Nepal , Pakistan and just slightly above Afghanistan. Which kind of makes it hard to believe

Your thoughts on the report?

Perhaps true, perhaps not.

True because, despite many government initiatives, non government organizations are doing their part, we are a large country, so not everyone is not fed, possible.

False because, if the surveys are done by foreign agencies, there is a possibility of them having ulterior motives, not the agency per se, but the people who fund, possible.

I believe this report should be torn and thrown into dustbin
How can, Sri Lanka which is dependent on humanitarian aid from India, be above India

Maybe they are self sufficient with food produce, better than us in this one aspect, while economy may have collapsed.

Read a few points about their crisis, but unable to recollect if they also import some food items, among other things :thinking:

They were self sufficient but not any more. In the name of 100% organic farming, they destroyed their entire agriculture. Now India and some other countries are providing them with food, medicines, petroleum, gas etc
