Too Full? Here have some cake.

 Some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy and active life. That’s about one in nine people on Earth! And the vast majority of the world’s hungry people live in developing countries like India!! 

“Google and Facebook are tough acts to match when it comes to creating fun and innovative activities for employees. But Droom, a Gurgaon-based startup, is not far behind. Recently, the company, an online marketplace for used automobiles, organised a cake-smashing session for its 80 member team. Some 250 pastries and 50 cakes were hurled between employees, bosses included.”

Food waste in India

 Cake punching Earth5R

If only they could take all that cake and feed some hungry kids. Sigh!

We complain and then sit back. Hungry people bother us but not so much that we go out of our way to help them.

I might sound like a stuck up asshole right now, but we’re all humans, the only difference is that we are a little more privileged and they? We all know how many ducks we give about them.

It takes little, very little efforts on our parts to make the world a better place. The world is a distant dream, let us just start with making our locality a better place.

Each one feed one, no one should have to go to sleep hungry. It is the least we can do…humans for humanity.
