In the past 2 decades, India has seen a significant growth with a population of over 1.3 billion. Food gain production has doubled up almost two times. There is plenty of food in our country yet the poor are starving. Despite having so many resources to boast industrial and economic growth, the nation still has nothing to show for people starving day in day out.
According to a survey, 190.7 million people go hungry every day, 3,000 children die every day from poor diet-related illness in India. It is no surprise that “Rich are getting richer and Poor are getting poorer”. It is difficult to explain the conditions of poor people who can’t afford to buy food and thereby they fail to meet the caloric demands of the body.
Day by day, their stomachs keep growling but they are left with no other option as they survive somehow eating from garbage. Celebrities on TV channels claim that they are donating a whopping amount to the poor and needy, but on ground level, the truth is different.
There is a saying that ‘if you feed others who are in an empty stomach, then you are considered on par with God. When nobody came forward to feed the hungry stomachs, a Hyderabad citizen, identified as Hyder Moosvi hit the headlines for feeding the poor every month. Isn’t this man a wonderful soul? or maybe there is no adjective or superlative to describe him in one word.
He spends Rs.1.2 lakh from his own pocket not just once but every month only to feed the poor and help the needy. Now this man deserves huge media attention. Several other media keeps running behind celebrities. But, we need to promote this man for his priceless work. Let’s really hope that one-day higher authority would come forward to resolve all the problems.
Hyder Moosvi turned a good Samaritan since 2015, by providing food packets 8 to 10 times on a monthly basis. Whenever he sees poor people starving for hunger, he immediately buys the food and distributes to them for free of cost. This goes to show that he is indeed a man for the society. He instilled faith that ‘humanity’ still exists on this planet.
“We started food distribution in the year 2015, but at that time we use to distribute eight to ten times in a month. From 31 March 2017, we started distributing food daily at Dabeerpura bridge. People who can’t afford food come here from various places, stand in line and take food packets. We are really happy to serve those in need,” he told ANI
