Save the hungry

It has been learnt from the recent Oxfam report, as I learn from my teacher Prof. M. Zahidul Haque of SAUB, that every day 925 million people go hungry. It is very alarming news, no doubt. But one thing is inspiring that the Agricultural Science is remarkably advancing in developing super yielding cereals and genetically modified crops. It is also true that to meet the food demand, chemicals are being used improperly which leaves adverse effects on the environment.

The developed nations have surplus food grains, if they distribute this food rationally, it is not impossible to feed the hungry people of the world.
