Now this is some real funny news I’ve ever heard… Mr Bush has problem with the eating habits of Indians..
“Indian food habits were contributing to spiralling prices of commodities, which in turn, were worsening the global food crisis. PTI”
News says “Mr Bush had praised the fast growth of developing countries but pointed out that India’s growing middle class was pushing up consumption leading to higher food prices. He said that prosperity in countries like India is good but that it led to demands for “better nutrition.” “That’s bigger than America... and when you start getting wealth, you start demanding better nutrition and better food. And so demand is high, and that causes the price to go up,” Mr Bush said. He had also pegged the Indian middle class at 350 million people who were pushing up food prices. US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had also linked the growing wealth of Indians and Chinese in pushing up food prices. ”
Mr Bush’s remarks had led to outrage among India’s political classes with defence minister A K Anthony calling it a `cruel joke’.
“Mr Anthony had further pointed out that the policies of the US which included diversion of agriculture land for bio-fuel purposes, was contributing to the global food shortage.”
Its always true.. things beneath the nose are hardly seen.. such is in the case of Mr Bush.
How could he not see the food waste they create in terms of bottled/canned/processed food that reaches expiry and is never consumed but wasted and the obese Americans consumption ( not forget the obese statistics of Americans..)
-- 63% of Americans are overweight with a Body Mass Index (BMI) in excess of 25.0.-- 31% are obese with a BMI in excess of 30.0.-- Childhood obesity in the United States has more than tripled in the past two decades.
Above figures are taken from the following link
Where as Wiki says obese Indians to be just 5% of country’s population and majority of people still living under poverty line, who can barely manage to get two times meals..
Mr Bush is standing up and sticking to his image like a blond… (we ve lost the track of the count also)
Why don’t you control your own resources before pointing fingers… !!!
