Respected principal, Deputy Principal, Teachers and Dear friends
This is FIZAH NOORJAHAN..Wishing a pleasant morning to you all
Today I shall give a short speech on WASTAGE OF FOOD
My mother recently had shown me the pictures of starving children in Ethiopia and Somalia and had explained to me about their sufferings due to scarcity of food. I was so touched that I chose this topic for today.
According to Indian philosophy food is equal to God. But are we giving the same amount of respect to food these days? Frankly, most of us do not. We fail to remember that millions of poor people are dying in hunger when millions of tons of food is being thrown away and wasted for no good reason.
Wasting food is not good for anyone in anyway. It is harmful to the economy, it is harmful to the environment and also it is against our own ethical justification. Scenes at the parties, gatherings and get-togethers have become very pathetic. The evil of wasting food has even crept into our homes these days. The food that goes into the waste basket after every meal from a home is enough to feed at least one hungry person.
Yes dear friends even a single grain of food is too precious to waste.
So let us start a silent revolution from our homes to stop wastage of food. Also let us resolve to teach others about the crime of wasting food during parties and celebrations. Gandhiji once told that if God were to appear to the millions of hungry people, it would be in the form of food. So, please don't waste food. If things are going wrong, we have to put them on the right track.
Thank you for your patient attention.
Hope you enjoy the day ahead
