Description

A fresh report by the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization says the global food price index slightly fell in 20-14 compared to the year before. But it seems that's not the case for India as many Indians are coping with persistent food price rises. The surge in prices comes despite a good start in seasonal monsoons. Its 8 pm in the evening, vineeta a slum dweller is preparing for dinner, few chapattis and a plate of tomato gravy is in the menu tonight, she says it’s hard for us to think about having good food because we can’t afford it since our income is the same as before. She adds that her husband is a laborer and earns 200 rupees a day while they have two kids. Price rise is not good for us she says.
