    Teachers play a vital role in anti-malnutrition mission ‘AahaarKranti’

    New Delhi : India faces an ironic problem of hunger despite abundance. Studies estimate that the country produces four times the calories that it consumes, yet many people are malnourished. The root cause of this phenomenon is a lack of nutritional awareness in all sections of our society.

    To spread the message of the need for a nutritionally balanced diet and to understand the importance of economically accessible local fruits and vegetables, a science NGO `VijnanaBharati (Vibha)’ and an association of Indian Scientists and Technocrat working abroad, Global Indian Scientists’ and Technocrats’ Forum (GIST) have recently launched aprogramme called AahaarKranti, with the motto: UttamAahaarUttamVichaar.

    The effort is supported by the Department of Science and Technology’s Vigyan Prasar, Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR)’s Pravasi Bharatiya Academic and Scientific Sampark (Prabhass) programme and various central and state government ministries, and government agencies.

    After defeating hunger with the Green Revolution and creating untold fortunes in rural India with the White Revolution, it’s time to bring in the Aahaar Revolution for better health, longevity, prosperous farmers and India’s stature as a Vishwaguru. AahaarKrantiaims to achieve this.  It was formally launched on April 13th, 2021.

    Teachers, whether at schools or Aanganwadis,  or in their communities, are likely to be a pillar of this Kranti. As the next milestone in its journey,‘Guru Poornima’would be celebrated  withan event where the various  educational modules that have been prepared for teachers across the breadth of India would be rolled out, with the ambition of reaching 31.5 crore school children.It would mark the beginning ofan on-the-ground action, led by teachers and volunteers.
