In Totagalu area of Jangamakote village in Chikkaballapura district, travelling after dusk is mostly forbidden for women and girls. Men also avoid stepping out of their home unless it's absolutely necessary. Reason: The area doesn't have a single streetlight. As crimes on streets were rampant, residents began thinking twice before stepping out. And that's when children decided to get things fixed. The route they took was simple: Makkala Gram Sabhas.


Children, their parents, anganwadi workers, supervisors from department of women and child development, auxiliary nurse midwives, teachers, police officers, school development and monitoring committee members, local NGO representatives and jurisdictional GP members are compulsorily required to be present at the sabhas. Children could raise any issue that affects their lives. Officials and panchayat members take note of the same and initiate action.

India continues to perform miserably on the Global Hunger Index ranking toward the very bottom. The key parameters taken into account for this ranking include under-nourished population, wasted and stunted children under 5 years of age. The numbers for India are pathetic on these counts: 'wasted children' about 15% and 'stunted children' about 39%. Students or children of teachers and parents reading this are likely the more fortunate ones. Yet if these fortunate children grow up without learning the value of food and importance of not wasting it, that would be a calamity too. Teach your children not to waste food. There are so many going hungry. Serve only as much as you need. Eat all you take for yourself. We simply cannot afford to not take this lesson.
