There are over 300 million people in India who do not have enough food to meet their basic nutritional requirements. With further intrusion of the market economy and increasing corporatisation of Indian agriculture, it is suspected that millions more will go hungry in the first decades of the new millenium. 'Harvesting Hunger' is a journey into this impending world of hunger and famine, an exploration of the deepening crisis of food security in the country.
