This is one of the most interesting articles I have read recently--it is a must read

Last year two young men from America decided to move to India and live on the income of an average poor Indian. Tushar suggested one evening — “Let us try to understand an ‘average Indian', by living on an ‘average income'.”

"What changed for them was that they spent a large part of their day planning and organising their food. Eating out was out of the question; even dhabas were too expensive. Milk and yoghurt were expensive and therefore used sparingly, meat was out of bounds, as were processed food like bread.

They found that they could not afford to travel by bus more than five km in a day. If they needed to go further, they could only walk. They could afford electricity only five or six hours a day, therefore sparingly used lights and fans.

So what did these two friends learn from their brief encounter with poverty? That hunger can make you angry. That a food law which guarantees adequate nutrition to all is essential. That poverty does not allow you to realise even modest dreams. And above all — in Matt's words — that empathy is essential for democracy."

Just reading this article is making me think about what I can to do to be less wasteful in my life and cut costs so that I can reach out and help others. I hope that it will make you think a little bit also! If you found it interesting please consider sharing it.
