My Story: I Noticed That They Were Barefoot And So I Bought Them Slippers

I met this neglected and extremely poor family. I had just finished a lavish lunch (with food wastage) and saw them outside the restaurant. They were estranged, messed up, hungry etc. My heart cried and I opted to offer them something. I noticed that they were barefoot and so I bought them slippers.

On discussion, I came to know that they were farmers. Unfortunately, the situation of farmers in our country is very horrible. They wanted food and the father said “भाई, हमें थोड़ा बचा-कूचा खाना दे दो.”

They were asking for leftover food!

Those who grow food have nothing to eat. And, after that day I promised myself never-ever to waste food on my plate. This is the least I can do to respect the farmers’ dignity. God is everywhere and also it’s in food.

I learned one of the biggest lessons of my life – LOVE FOOD HATE WASTAGE!
