India consistently holds top ranks in most of the reports on poverty. In terms of sheer number of hungry people we even beat countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. We don’t have to see those reports to understand the situation in India. However, for many, this hunger and common man’s fight for survival is a mere a joke. Otherwise they would have thought twice before organizing tomato festival in Vadodara.
This party which saw the wastage of more than 5 tonnes of tomato also witnessed a participation of close to 3,000 people.
Well, there is nothing legally wrong in organizing a tomotino (just like the one in Italy) festival in India. But, living in a modern society can we simply turn our eyes away from the life of our fellow beings and support these kinds of monumental wastage?
