Starving India

The recent death by food poisoning of 23 Indian children has led to a widespread anger throughout India.

The children who were served food as part of a free school meals scheme died rapidly from the effects of the poisoning, some of them in their parents' arms on the way to hospital. 'Several parents who lost children in the tragedy said they had trusted the school to serve their kids their only solid meal of the day.'

In a country where 42 per cent of children are underweight the free school meals are considered crucial.    But their supply has been blighted by corruption.
