Think ,Eat and Save
India is growing more food but also wasting up to 67 million tonne of it every year, a government study shows. That’s more than the national output of countries such as Britain. And enough food for Bihar, one of India’s larger states, for a whole year.The value of the food lost – Rs 92,000 crore -- is nearly two-thirds of what it costs the government to feed 600 million poor Indians with subsidised ration under the National Food Security programme. Why does this matter? Lower supplies raise inflation and hurt the economy by reducing farmers’ returns on investments, said Amit Vyas, an economist with GB Pant Institute. Fruits, vegetables and pulses -- the main drivers of food inflation -- are wasted the most, found the study by Ciphet, the farm ministry’s harvest-research body. Being perishables, they are prone to rotting. Gluts, pests, weather and lack of modern storage are the other reasons for wastage.The study was done to update findings two years ago that revealed enormous levels of food being chucked along the supply chain.The picture is more alarming for individual crops. One million tonne of onions vanish on their way from farms to markets, as do 2.2 million tonne tomatoes. Overall, 5 million eggs crack or go bad due to lack of cold storage. The results provide fresh estimates of the value of wastage and also put a question mark on policies that focus on increasing output with little investment in technology to preserve food. The big takeaway from Ciphet’s study is not just waste, but what can be done to stop it. The report recommends on-farm training and cold-storage investments. Some of the technology is homegrown and cheaply available, but underutilised, it states.After harvest, produce goes through a series of operations, from farm to market. “Each operation and handling stage results in some losses. Thus a huge quantity of agricultural production is reduced from the food chain,” the study says.

Child Marriage in India -Reported By Adarsh Kumar
Child marriage in India has been practiced for centuries, with children married off before their physical and mental maturity. The problem of child marriage in India remains rooted in a complex matrix of religious traditions, social practices, economic factors and deeply rooted prejudices. Regardless of its roots, child marriage constitutes a gross violation of human rights, leaving physical, psychological and emotional scars for life. Sexual activity starts soon after marriage, and pregnancy and childbirth at an early age can lead to maternal as well as infant mortality. Moreover, women who marry younger are more likely to experience domestic violence within the home. With support from the National Institute of Public Cooperation and Child Development (NIPCCD), this study’s major objectives were to: Assess the prevalence and incidence of child marriages, especially in the selected states of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh Analyze the various socioeconomic and cultural factors leading to child marriage Analyze constitutional and legal measures against child marriage and their implementation The study used both secondary sources and primary data in order to establish attitudes and beliefs regarding child marriage with in communities, as well as attitudes and practices of key institutional actors such as police, government departments, community workers and Panchayat members. Field visits and discussions revealed a multitude of factors that help sustain and even endorse the custom of child marriage, despite legal barriers. First,social groups follow traditions from previous eras without questioning contemporary relevance. Early marriage allows parents to waiver 'responsibility' of settling their children. Secondly, economically weak and large families encourage the practice as it helps send off girl children early, while marriage of a boy brings an additional hand to assist in household and economic activities. Third, members of communities practicing child marriage tend to have little to no formal education. Belief in religious scriptures and the idea that these contain prescription for early marriage drive families to fulfill this "obligation." Fourth, early marriage ensures full "utilization" of fertility and childbearing capacity. Last but not least, strong caste ties limit the availability of suitable marital partners. As soon as parents identify a match, they make haste in conducting the marriage. As a result of the findings, the study recommends the following: Increase awareness generation: All stakeholders should be sensitized and convinced about the negative impacts of child marriage. Gender sensitization programs: Gender training programs should be spread throughout the district for police and NGOs. Primary and secondary education for girls should be promoted. Checking loopholes in the law: Shortcomings must be corrected to strengthen the law. Training: Child Marriage Prevention Officers need to be trained for vigilance. Special police cells: Task forces must be set up to focus on cases of child marriage. Increased authority for NGOs: NGOs should be given the authority to report and intervene in cases of child marriage.

Child Labour Bill
The Cabinet on Wednesday approved amendment in Child Labour Act which said children below 14 years can work in non-hazardous industries provided it is only during holidays or after school hours. The original Child Labour Law banned employment of children below 14 in only 18 hazardous industries. The amendments also make it clear that children between 14 and 18 years will also not be allowed to work in hazardous industries. The changes in the labour law also provide for stricter punishment for employers for violation. While there is no penalty provision for parents for the first offence, the employer would be liable for punishment even for the first violation. In case of parents, the repeat offenders may be penalised with a monetary fine up to Rs 10,000. In case of first offence, the penalty for employers has been increased up to two-and-half times from the existing Rs 20,000 to up to Rs 50,000 now. In case of a second or subsequent offence of employing any child or adolescent in contravention of the law, the minimum imprisonment would be one year which may extend to three years. Earlier, the penalty for second or subsequent offence of employing any child in contravention of the law was imprisonment for a minimum term of six months which may extend to two years. After the Cabinet approval, the government will move official amendments to the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Amendment Bill, 2012 in Parliament. While child rights activists were opposed to the dilution saying it will promote child labour, those involved in business maintained that children need to be trained in traditional arts at an early stage or they will not be able to acquire the required skills like weaving and stitching. The age of prohibition of employment has been linked to age under Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009. Exceptions have, however, been made in case of works in which the child helps the family or family enterprises. The condition is that such enterprises should not involved any hazardous occupation. Another condition set forth is that they should work after school hours or during vacations. Moreover, exemption has also been given where the child works as an artist in an audio-visual entertainment industry, including advertisement, films, television serials or any such other entertainment or sports activities except the circus. This exemption is also conditional and stipulates taking up prescribed safety measures. By Adarsh Kumar Shakya
