A careful look at the facts makes it clear that Modi never did compare the state to the country. He had balanced the infant mortality rate among the state's scheduled tribe community with that of a sub-Saharan African nation, and in that, he wasn't off the mark at all.

As it happens, such a comparison was done earlier by the Economic and Political Weekly (EPW), a highly respected policy and governance publication as also by a rival political leader who happens to be a communist and a former Chief Minister of Kerala.

In an issue on "continuing deaths of infants and children due to malnutrition in Attappady" EPW focused on the state government's indifference towards addressing issues affecting the tribals in the region.

Quoting several surveys and reports (some as recent as 2013) the publication states that "Attappady can be called Kerala's sub-Saharan Africa".

Here's the particularly telling extract from the EPW report:

"A recent survey conducted by Thampu, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) dealing with tribal rights, found that out of the 300 tribals affected by malnutrition 200 were children. K.Venugopal, the district medical officer, said that 412 cases of anemia and 67 cases of malnutrition had been noticed by the health department (The Hindu: 2013). The Integrated Tribal Development Programme conducted a survey between 11 April 2013 and 19 April 2013 in Attappady, covering 7,565 households and a population of 23,599, and found that the number of tribal people with anemia/malnutrition was 463/69, the number of children aged below five with anemia/ malnutrition was 68/57 and lactating mothers with anemia and malnutrition was 62/0 (The Hindu: 2013). The UNICEF Report (2013) observed that weight of the mothers at delivery ranged between 39 and 45 kgs. The Ekbal Committee (2013) said that most women had undergone abortion more than once and almost all children examined suffered from anemia and malnutrition. Difference between the nutritional status of Kerala's general rural populace and that of Attappady could be as high as 50 per cent (Suchitra: 2013). Considering these dismal statistics, Attappady can be called Kerala's "sub-Saharan Africa”.

जान लीजिए ..!!
क्या इससे पहले देखा था की..
➖किसी प्रधानमंत्री का सगा छोटा_भाई (श्री प्रल्हाद
मोदी ) बिना किसी सुरक्षा के आश्रम एक्सप्रेस की
जनरल बोगी से दिल्ली जाकर राशन की दुकानदारो के मार्जिन बढ़ाने के लिए आन्दोलन करे ?

➖आज भारत में एक ऐसा प्रधानमंत्री है..!! जिसके
परिवार के सभी सदस्य अपने मेहनत से कमाया हुवा
खाते है ..!!
नरेंद्र मोदी जी के अन्य चार भाई..!!
➖एक भाई पेंशन याफ्ता है..!!

इकलौती बहन का पति एलआईसी में क्लास थर्ड
से रिटायर है..! और वो गुजरात के एक छोटे से गाँव
में रहता है...!
नरेंद्र मोदी की ‪#‎भतीजी‬ ने प्रथम श्रेणी मे ग्रेजुएशन करने के बाद अच्छी नौकरी की आस मे निवास जाकर नरेंद्र मोदी को अपनी
इच्छा जताने पर..मोदीजी ने अपनी जेब से 101₹
देते हुये कहां था..!!
" बेटी एक अकेली आप हकदार नही..बल्कि सारे
# गुजरात की बेटीयाॅ मेरी है..! मै उनके साथ अन्याय नही कर सकता..!! आपको मेरा आशिर्वाद
है..स्पर्धा परीक्षा की तैयारी कर अपना मुकाम स्वयं हासिल करो..! "

आज जरा मंत्री क्या बन गये..अरे मंत्री छोड़ो.
..जरा सी सत्ता क्या हासिल कर ली..! अपने
परिवार..सगे..संबंधी..मामा..भांजे..जिजा..साले.
.सबको फायदा पहुचाने और कमाने की होड लग जात है..!!

अब आप ही बताये..ऐसे कालजयी_व्यक्तित्व का
मै सम्मान नही करू तो क्या करु..?

यदी मेरी बातों से आप संतुष्ट नही है..तो मुझे बताए..
➖अरविन्द_केजरीवाल के घर वाले क्या करते है ?

➖लालू_यादव के घर वाले क्या करते है ?

इनके अलावा जिनका भी नाम आपको याद आये उनका नाम बताएं..

67 साल पहले एक गुजरातीने देश को अंग्रेजों से मुक्त किया था..

अब 67 साल बाद एक गुजरातीने देश को कांग्रेस से मुक्त किया है..

पहले वाला गुजराती 'नोटो' पर छा गया,

अभी वाला गुजराती 'वोटों' पर छा गया..

ऐ दोस्त खिडकिया खोल

के देखने दे मुझे ..

मेरे वतन की नई तस्वीर बन

रही है..

🌻आज भारत फिरसे आजाद हुआ..

➖पहला इग्लेड की रानी से..

और आज

➖" इटली की नौकरानी से "

➖जो पढ़ सके न खुद, किताब मांग रहे है,

➖खुद रख न पाए, वे हिसाब मांग रहे है।

➖जो कर सके न साठ साल में कोई विकास देश का, वे 1 साल में जवाब मांग रहे है।

➖आज गधे गुलाब मांग रहे है, चोर लुटेरे इन्साफ मांग रहे है।

➖जो लुटते रहे देश को 60 सालों तक,

सुना है आज वो 1साल का हिसाब मांग रहे है?

ये??

वर्षों बाद एक नेता को माँ गंगा की आरती करते देखा है,

वरना अब तक एक परिवार की समाधियों पर फूल चढ़ते देखा है।

वर्षों बाद एक नेता को अपनी मातृभाषा में बोलते देखा है ।

वरना अब तक रटी रटाई अंग्रेजी बोलते देखा है।

➖अब तक एक परिवार की मूर्तियां बनते देखा है।

वर्षों बाद एक नेता को संसद की माटी चूमते देखा है,

वरना अब तक इटैलियन सैंडिल चाटते देखा है।

वर्षों बाद एक नेता को देश के लिए रोते देखा है,

वरना अब तक "मेरे पति को मार दिया" कह कर वोटों की भीख मांगते देखा है।

➖पाकिस्तान को घबराते देखा है,

➖अमेरिका को झुकते देखा है।

इतने वर्षों बाद भारत माँ को खुलकर मुस्कुराते देखा है।


आप सभी से निवेदन इस मेसेज को पुरे भारत हर एक नागरीक तक पहुचाने में मेरी मदद करे
नाम इसलिए उँचा हैं.. हमारा क्योंकि..
हम बदला लेने, की नही 
बदलाव लाने, की सोच रखते हैं..

समझदार व्यक्ति वह नहीं जो ईट का जवाब पत्थर से दे ।

समझदार व्यक्ति वो हैं जो फेंकी हुई ईट से अपना आशियाना बना ले ।

Carnivores Vs Herbivores...
 
Reasons why I did not eat meat for 19 years (12% of millennials have already given up meat in America):

The Survival of Humanity Argument

Veganism reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which is key to preventing ocean acidification.  If the ocean is too acidic, plankton dies and with that 50-80% of the oxygen we breathe is gone, making life impossible ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/gwKRRDiX3nc

The Hunger Argument

Number of people worldwide who will die as a result of malnutrition this year: 20 million 
Number of people who could be adequately fed using land freed if Americans reduced their intake of meat by 10%: 100 million 
Percentage of corn grown in the U.S. eaten by people: 20 
Percentage of corn grown in the U.S. eaten by livestock: 80 
Percentage of oats grown in the U.S. eaten by livestock: 95 
Percentage of protein wasted by cycling grain through livestock: 90 
How frequently a child dies as a result of malnutrition: every 2.3 seconds 
Pounds of potatoes that can be grown on an acre: 40,000 
Pounds of beef produced on an acre: 250 
Percentage of U.S. farmland devoted to beef production: 56 
Pounds of grain and soybeans needed to produce a pound of edible flesh from feedlot beef: 16

The Environmental Argument

Cause of global warming: greenhouse effect 
Primary cause of greenhouse effect: carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels 
Fossil fuels needed to produce meat-centered diet vs. a meat-free diet: 3 times more 
Percentage of U.S. topsoil lost to date: 75 
Percentage of U.S. topsoil loss directly related to livestock raising: 85 
Number of acres of U.S. forest cleared for cropland to produce meat-centered diet: 260 million 
Amount of meat imported to U.S. annually from Central and South America: 300,000,000 pounds 
Percentage of Central American children under the age of five who are undernourished: 75 
Area of tropical rainforest consumed in every quarter-pound of rainforest beef: 55 square feet 
Current rate of species extinction due to destruction of tropical rainforests for meat grazing and other uses: 1,000 per year

The Cancer Argument

Increased risk of breast cancer for women who eat meat daily compared to less than once a week: 3.8 times 
For women who eat eggs daily compared to once a week: 2.8 times 
For women who eat butter and cheese 2-4 times a week: 3.25 times 
Increased risk of fatal ovarian cancer for women who eat eggs 3 or more times a week vs. less than once a week: 3 times 
Increased risk of fatal prostate cancer for men who consume meat, cheese, eggs and milk daily vs. sparingly or not at all: 3.6 times.

The Waste Argument

Animal agriculture produces millions of pounds of waste daily in America alone.  A 2500 cow farm produces more poop than the city of Minneapolis (almost half a million people).  This has to be gotten rid of.  It can be infested with mad cow disease at times, swine flu, bird flu perhaps if not beef.

The Cholesterol Argument

Number of U.S. medical schools: 125 
Number requiring a course in nutrition: 30 
Nutrition training received by average U.S. physician during four years in medical school: 2.5 hours 
Most common cause of death in the U.S.: heart attack 
How frequently a heart attack kills in the U.S.: every 45 seconds 
Average U.S. man's risk of death from heart attack: 50 percent 
Risk of average U.S. man who eats no meat: 15 percent 
Risk of average U.S. man who eats no meat, dairy or eggs: 4 percent 
Amount you reduce risk of heart attack if you reduce consumption of meat, dairy and eggs by 10 percent: 9 percent 
Amount you reduce risk of heart attack if you reduce consumption by 50 percent: 45 percent 
Amount you reduce risk if you eliminate meat, dairy and eggs from your diet: 90 percent 
Average cholesterol level of people eating meat-centered-diet: 210 mg/dl 
Chance of dying from heart disease if you are male and your blood cholesterol level is 210 mg/dl: greater than 50 percent

The Natural Resources Argument

User of more than half of all water used for all purposes in the U.S.: livestock production 
Amount of water used in production of the average cow: sufficient to float a destroyer 
Gallons of water needed to produce a pound of wheat: 25 
Gallons of water needed to produce a pound of California beef: 5,000 
Years the world's known oil reserves would last if every human ate a meat-centered diet: 13 
Years they would last if human beings no longer ate meat: 260 
Calories of fossil fuel expended to get 1 calorie of protein from beef: 78 
To get 1 calorie of protein from soybeans: 2 
Percentage of all raw materials (base products of farming, forestry and mining, including fossil fuels) consumed by U.S. that is devoted to the production of livestock: 33 
Percentage of all raw materials consumed by the U.S. needed to produce a complete vegetarian diet: 2

The Antibiotic Argument

Percentage of U.S. antibiotics fed to livestock: 55 
Percentage of staphylococci infections resistant to penicillin in 1960: 13 
Percentage resistant in 1988: 91 
Response of European Economic Community to routine feeding of antibiotics to livestock: ban 
Response of U.S. meat and pharmaceutical industries to routine feeding of antibiotics to livestock: full and complete support

The Pesticide Argument

Common belief: U.S. Department of Agriculture protects our health through meat inspection 
Reality: fewer than 1 out of every 250,000 slaughtered animals is tested for toxic chemical residues 
Percentage of U.S. mother's milk containing significant levels of DDT: 99 
Percentage of U.S. vegetarian mother's milk containing significant levels of DDT: 8 
Contamination of breast milk, due to chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides in animal products, found in meat-eating mothers vs. non-meat eating mothers: 35 times higher 
Amount of Dieldrin ingested by the average breast-fed American infant: 9 times the permissible level

The Ethical Argument

Number of animals killed for meat per hour in the U.S.: 660,000 
Occupation with highest turnover rate in U.S.: slaughterhouse worker 
Occupation with highest rate of on-the-job-injury in U.S.: slaughterhouse worker

The Survival Argument

Athlete to win Ironman Triathlon more than twice: Dave Scott (6 time winner) 
Food choice of Dave Scott: Vegetarian 

The Fear-Stress Hormones Argument

When animals suffer for seconds/minutes during the sudden slaughter death, they release stress-fear hormones that age and sicken usgoo.gl/yxY4h. Fear hormones as well as astral vibrations that contaminate their flesh also prompt us into human-human conflict more often; we and animals share a lot of hormonal pathways, as neuroscience shows. Bill Clinton is vegan (goo.gl/0NjdS) and so are some CEOs (http://goo.gl/7laCI). Gandhi, Tesla, Edison, Einstein, Newton, DaVinci were vegetarian: goo.gl/IMJQJ

The Amazon and other Key Forests Argument

Rainfall and preventing desertification is achieved thru a complex hydrologic cycle that involves forests.  If we wipe out all forests, we are in big trouble, since forests generate 20-50% of the oxygen we breath and ensure we get rain.  Beef uses 160 times more land and 200 times more water per calorie than wheat, lentils, beans, potatoes do. Beef requires 28 times more land and 11 times more water than chicken and pork ► http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/jul/21/giving-up-beef-reduce-carbon-footprint-more-than-cars.   If people go vegan or just without beef, you help save lots of water and forests.  

ESP-Telepathy Argument

It has been noticed that telepathy and other ESP functions become enhanced when meat is given up ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/UuoSukYzycu.  See also the telepathy and biophotons connection ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/1e7bYQEWmsa.  The MIT paper on biophotons in fresh fruits and veggies ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/ef6UA8yGtLk

Space Exploration Argument

How can astronauts go in space and raise cattle on their spaceship to get to Alpha Centauri?  lol.  You got to be kidding me.  The nice thing about veganism is that with vertical urban farms, people can get local food (fresh - picked up 2 hours before, thus very rich in biophotons) easily in any area and Earth can thus feed 50 billion vegans easily.  Going off-planet is a lot easier too when there are more scientists/engineers working on space travel, terra forming planets, etc.  Creating perfect weather, eliminating deaths from natural disasters, etc all these things require a lot of science.  

The Longevity Argument

Vegetarians and vegans were shown to live 7-12 years longer than non-vegetarians (take your B12 or a normal vitamin pill with B12 in it, as it's scarce in vegan foods and get B12 even if you eat meat and are over 50, because animal foods B12 is harder to assimilate as people age).  The Longest living people in North America are the vegetarian Adventists in Loma Linda, who reach 105 often.  Here is a Loma Linda doctor (I talked to him) who did surgeries at 95: http://goo.gl/MQqn3, after decades of being vegan.  This shows meat is not needed for longevity.  Mahatma Gandhi was vegetarian, just like 500 million people in India today and Albert Einstein, Leonardo DaVinci, Nikola Tesla, Isaac Newton, Pythagoras.  Did you know India is the most vegetarian country in the world?  :)  RED MEAT CAUSES CANCERhttp://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/11316316/Red-meat-triggers-toxic-immune-reaction-which-causes-cancer-scientists-find.html

The Flu and other Diseases Argument

Without incredibly toxic and filthy factory farms, there will be no frequent epidemics of swine flu, bird flu, mad cow disease, etc.

The Poop Argument

There is fecal matter in virtually all American beef according to Consumer Reports ► http://www.inquisitr.com/2368247/all-ground-beef-in-the-us-is-contaminated-with-fecal-matter-according-to-consumer-reports/.  Also much of chicken meat has poop in it ► http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kathy-freston/chicken-contamination_b_1655170.html

The IQ Argument

It's been noted that people with higher IQ are far more likely to give up meat.  "Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”  Einstein. On a similar note he stated, “Our task must be to [widen] our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” And on the day he became a vegetarian, Einstein wrote in his diary, “So I am living without fats, without meat, without fish, but am feeling quite well this way. It always seems to me that man was not born to be a carnivore.”  For more quotes on giving up meat from world's most amazing people, see this post ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/CapnTqw8Xix
