BBC World News and The Times of India newspaper released information today on the most recent statistics from the Global Hunger Index. India scored extremely poorly, behind many war-torn African countries including Congo, Rwanda and Sudan. It was claimed that India scored so badly due to the levels of malnutrition amongst children under the age of 5. India would like to regard itself as a developing country, with the potential to become a world super-power. I hope the government take note of these statistics and address the levels of poverty in the country.
