Sneha Deepika Dantuluri Edward Keller & Darcy Bender Design for the Century December 17, 2015 FOOD CRISIS Food not only distinguishes and represents a culture, but can also reflect one 's personality, lifestyle, and socio-economic status. It is the rudiment of mankind and people cannot survive without it. Food crisis is becoming increasingly severe in this days. Every 3.6 seconds, the time it takes you to take a bite of food, a person dies of hunger or malnourishment (Vision). Hunger is a problem that has been around since the beginning of time, but it is everything but yesterday’s issue. It is very real today and the numbers of starving people are still growing. One would think this issue is because that there is not enough food for everyone in the world, but there is more than enough to go around. The global food crisis is unacceptable because it is caused by a number of easily solvable problems. In the near future this is going to be a more dominant critical issues which needs to be addressed and resolved. Significantly, there has been nothing comparable to the 30 million or more who perished from starvation during China’s tragic “Great Leap Forward” (1958-1961). However, while India may not be a starving country, large swathes of the population, especially children, are still malnourished. India is the second largest country in the world in agricultural produce with highest percentage of arable land area. It also ranks first in the gross irrigated croplands.
