Subject: Colossal wastage of food in the lavish Indian
We all talk of changing our country for betterment but how little
do we do in this regard. Out of so many things that go unnoticed
in our dear country, here is one issue that I wish to chalk out.
It is strange how Indians spend
savings on their weddings.
The wedding market in India is flourishing, with approximately 1,
50, 000 crores per year. The shocking part is that all this
wastage is happening when our own country, India, is a host of
the biggest armies of starving people in the world. Such wastage
should be censured and people should be educated against wastage
of food in such a manner. In social functions and gatherings,
guests should not squander food by piling up their plates
excessively. The size of the servings should be limited according
to the appetite. Besides, the hosts should also be responsible by
giving the caterers the exact number of guests to arrive, so that
the food is cooked accordingly and there is no wastage.
I cannot help but point out as to how people do not even bother
which means "please
respond", a French phrase,
to confirm their visit on being invited. Thus, the host, not sure
of the number of guests to arrive, prepares food in abundance
leading to inevitable wastage. Indian marriages are not just
famous for their traditions and customs but also because of their
grand fiestas. I hope that the new generation understands the
gravity of the situation and abandons old fashions and deals with
such issues practically.
