Poor people in India sell out the pulses they receive through public
distribution system (PDS), in turn leads to serious malnutrition in
children. It’s a chilling analysis of how our public life and
behaviour leads to disastrous consequences. The following is a superb
piece of analysis linking South Asians’ poor performance in the
Olympics then childhood malnutrition and then a scathing analysis.

We do worse in the Olympics than countries far poorer than us, and our
children are much less well-fed. I’d guess that these two facts are
connected.” [from the article]
