Courts & Hunger

by Sanjay Parikh
4.4 out of 5

Author Sanjay Parikh
Publisher Vani Prakashan
Synopsis Hunger is THE indicator of inequity, not hidden but exposed in a civilisation. Most of it is man-made. This book will not only sensitise the people about the truth of hunger and starvation but explain it with socio-economic roots keeping in view the national and international legal regime. The book shows the path how a meaningful judicial intervention can provide socio-economic justice to the poor and deprived. Sincere intervention and dedication for a human cause by Shri Sanjay Parikh is commendable. —Medha Patkar, Social activist Not so long ago, the KBK region of Odisha was a symbol of starvation. It has come a long way, without quite ending hunger. The interventions of the Supreme Court and National Human Rights Commission played an important role in this journey. They also paved the way for larger steps towards the right to food in the entire country later on. This recollection of the events, from one of the main players, is an invaluable account of these historic efforts. —Jean Drèze, Economist and Social scientist
