Hunger manifests itself in different forms though generally it is associated with the hunger for food and trust me a lot of us feel hungry for other things as well. It may sound funny to you but the truth is hunger for food is only one side of the picture. There are people who are hungry for ‘flesh’ and then there are people who are hungry for money. There are also some individuals who happen to be hungry for fame as well.
hunger for anything related to selfiness

For a purely scientific mind; hunger may simply be a matter of our body communicating to our brain the need for nourishment in order to sustain itself. But hunger has an emotional dimension as well. You may have heard the term hungry for love; in reality hunger stands for deprivation of any element. If you are lacking something then hunger for that particular element is natural. Children who are orphans appear hungry for emotional attachment and love from elders. They search in vain for that love and guidance which can only come from parents. So their ‘hunger’ is very much valid and cannot be ignored just because it does not concern food.

I will revert back to earlier lines when I specifically mentioned that hunger is a signal of something lacking within us. It could be food but we cannot limit hunger only to food or nutrition. Emotional hunger is even worse to deal with than the simple hunger for food. If you are deprived of food your body will physically become weak but if you enter the state of ‘emotional hunger’ then you may end up losing control of your mind over your body and everything else.
Hunger for wealth may lead to hunger for food; sounds confusing right but it is not for people who are hungry or let’s say greedy for money can be divided into two broad categories; One who is rich but still crave wealth and the second who does not have money but desire it to an unnatural extent. The former are more likely to cause ‘hunger for food’ for they are those people who in spite of being rich do not wish to help other human beings. 
They wish to spend 1000 bucks on a dress rather feeding 10 hungry mouths for a day. They keep their wealth close to their hearts and do not lend a helping hand to anyone; I am afraid they are those who are responsible for hunger to an extent.
To fathom the entire concept of hunger and its different shades is no easy task; also to understand its effects on various quarters of the society is not easy too. Everywhere around the world hunger exists in all forms and to confine this phenomenon to a particular region will be a gross injustice. 
However when we talk about South East Asia and India in particular; hunger is abundant in all of its manifestations but the hunger for food definitely tops the list. Unfortunately we have become so inhuman that we no longer care if our neighbor is sleeping on an empty stomach or not. All we care is about our own ‘hungers’; sad but true!


  1. once upon a time I live near a place in manila called squatter area. I've been there for two weeks gladly the study we were conducting finish in two weeks. I really feel for those people who sleep with hungry stomach, So i convinced my my mates to let them wash our clothes and we can give them money, they were happy and I am happy that we were able to help but what gets me is that once we gave them the money they would go straight to the store to buy some booze... they would ask all the neighbors to feast with them only to be broke again the next morning. I try to tell them to save a little but they say it's their money... All I'm saying is that sometimes the reason why somehow they feel no body cares is their own doing.

  2. You have brought up some great points. Especially when you mention spending $1000 on a dress instead of $10 to feed someone who is hungry.

  3. You definitely put things in perspective. I have never spent that kind of money on clothing, shoes or purses.

  4. This is a great reminder to be thankful for what we have and to help others when we can.

  5. I guess we are all hungry for something. We need to once in awhile stop along the way to help others.

    I am trying to think what I am hungry for right now, not fame, not food since I just ate... Right now, I am at a loss.

Why is Society important?

Why is Society so important? Why do we care a lot about society? Why we do all the things considering society in mind? What about society irritates us? Why we are judged for every single step we take? Why it is so important? These questions often come in our mind when we are judged by the society. We begin to curse society due to its negative impacts in our lives. Of course, we are the ones who create society and we are crucial members of it as well. Global societies are generally incorporated with different cultures and religions, and it is a fact that a community would look awful with the same type of people; we are not robots. The basic nature of the term "society" is democratic , then why we force cultural expectations in it? I am including relatives also in society, because apart from our neighbors, colleagues, and other people who comes into the circle of social interaction, relatives are also part of it; they are also living under the same socially accepted norms.

What is Nature Poem / Nature Poetry

What is Nature Poem / Nature Poetry Nature poem or poetry is an expression of composing poetry that centers principally on anything related to nature, for example; emotions, images, ideas, and a lot of natural concepts. Both poems and poetry are written matters, which is also a form of writing. However, you can't consider a writer as an poet. One needs rhyme and meter to write the appropriate pattern of poetry or a poem. The nature poetry or nature poem is not restricted to the rhyme or meter; Figurative terminology and exclusive kinds of styles can also be accepted gracefully. I am a writer and I don’t know how to write nature poem. However, I can describe what are nature poem/ natural poetry. So as mentioned above, content writing and poem writing are different subjects. Therefore, not every writer can write poetry. Haiku is the most common as well as a typical kind of nature poetry. Haiku poems are usually short and they normally favor natural elements; weather, seas

Beggar Mafia in India

Beggar Mafia in India Beggars in India Organized begging is a form of human trafficking that is highly practiced in India. Around 60,000 children go missing in India each year, however, there are probably way more that are not accounted for. The children are forced to work for beggar mafia's, which are organized criminal groups. The mafia usually only takes children that are ten years of age or younger. It is recommended that tourists, as well as natives, do not give the beggars any type of money. By giving them money, the mafia keeps making more and more money, which means they will be kidnapping more kids. "Arms-for-Alms" Scandal The CNN-IBN news channel underwent an investigation and caught three doctors on video agreeing to amputate limbs of child beggars for  as low as $200 or 10,000 rupees. However, the price usually ranges between $200-$800 or 10,000 to 40,000 rupees. The doctors would typically sew the muscles shut which causes gangrene t
