    One thought on “Ash in the Belly : India's Unfinished Battle Against Hunger”

    1. Harsh Mander puts forward a passionate account of the hopelessness, indignity and despair that most of our population goes though everyday in the face of hunger. He starts each chapter with a real-life account which makes us understand the issue as more than merely statistics and numbers. Some are stark images of sleeping hungry:‘Half the week we are able to eat roti or rice with either vegetable or dal. The other half, it is just roti, or rice boiled with salt and turmeric. But there are four [...]

    2. Unless you are a completely self absorbed member of India's westernized, urban, alienated, "this-country-stinks" elite determined to get ahead at any cost with no limits on who you will trample underfoot to get to where you want to get, Harsh Mandar is mandatory prescribed text! "Ash in the Belly" is an outstanding symposis of the reach, nature, causes and consequences of hunger in India and you would want to read it even if it was badly written, which manifestly this book is not. Harsh Mandar i [...]

    3. This was a very small book to begin with and every chapter was strewn with narratives of heart wrenching stories of hunger induced death, so that was bit of a dampener as I was looking at more of factual and data filled substantiation of the book's contention. Now, don't get me wrong, Mr. Mander does a good job presenting the data too but not enough to justify the weight this book carried - to provide an unequivocal supporting argument for FSB. Unfotunately, in my humble opinion it fell short by [...]

    4. This is an excellent book in many ways. I have worked in the field of nutrition, have travelled in villages, have walked the streets with my camera, and have seen hunger on the streets of India. However, I have not experienced hunger. What Harsh Mander does very well, is that he clearly highlights the issues, and he gives voice to the stories of those who experience hunger every day. This is something that most of us cannot imagine. I have seen cruelty on the streets, I have seen a little girl w [...]

    5. This is a well researched book which demonstrates the problems and reasons why India continues to struggle with hunger, poverty, the caste system, people with disabilities, the elderly, medical care, religion (specifically Muslim), and women's rights.While they have taken steps to feed the hungry and employ the impoverished, there is much corruption, made easy by a decentralized system of distribution and control. The covering up of the number of people who continue to die each day of starvation [...]
