Tan Chin Chew Aloysius's insight:

The method of using food subsidy is actually one of the best ways to wipe out poverty in india once and for all. By using the food subsidy against poverty, it can fill up the subject's gap twice, making india thriving from the rest with talented people.

KOLKATA: India needs to focus on its children if it is to emerge as a global power.
Tan Chin Chew Aloysius's insight:

This article describes the bitterness of poverty on india"s poor part of the population. Poverty is cruel and destroys goodness life has to offer. India has a lot of talented people ranging from scientists to engineers.

This article explains how poverty affects people around the world with respective reasons. People who do not have money have the worst problem as they depended on free materials to live and if they have a job, their pay would not be that high as an average working adult. According to racial comparison, the blacks suffer more from poverty than the whites(No offence intended). In the worst cases, poverty can even cause major riots. We must all start playing a part in fighting against poverty to reverse the widening gap between the rich and the poor.
