Food for Thought

All on a suuden, everyone is talking of food.

By way of explanation for wheat shortage, Sharad Pawar , Minister for Agriculture, picked on South Indians for taking to chapati eating habit.
Minister for Commerce Kamal Nath thinks that poor people have suddenly developed enhanced appetite. Hence the government is faced wth the new challenge of providing additional meal per day for 15 million people.
And now, the President of America feels anxious about Indian middle class eating healthy, causing global food and economic crisis.
Food riots breaking out in different parts of the world. Food items being rationed even in developed countries.
And the Big brother expects the rest of the world to take care of global food requirements, while he converts food to fuel in order to deal with rising oil price as also to presrve his own oil reserves.
At the bottom line, it's all about food.
When Einstein said “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones", I guess he had no inkling that World War III may be fought over food.
Is our civilization heading back to its primordial ways ?
Who is the fittest that will survive?
