We certainly don't.. India is a food surplus country..

In 2020, India had export 65 million tons of grain.
China's grain output is 670 million tons and India's grain output is 320 million tons. The population of the two countries is similar. If India is not hungry, why doesn't China can export food? even China imports 140 million tons of grain every year.

(670+140)/(320-65)=3.18
China's per capita food consumption is 3.18 times that of Indians. If Indians are not hungry, then the Chinese must have three stomachs.

India Falls To 101 From 94 In Hunger Index Behind Pak, Nepal: Report
Global Hunger Index: "People have been severely hit by COVID-19 and by pandemic related restrictions in India, the country with highest child wasting rate worldwide," the report said

18 countries, including China, Brazil and Kuwait, shared top rank with GHI score of less than 5
New Delhi:
India has slipped to 101st position in the Global Hunger Index (GHI) 2021 of 116 countries, from its 2020 position of 94th and is behind its neighbours Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal.
Eighteen countries, including China, Brazil and Kuwait, shared the top rank with GHI score of less than five, the website of the Global Hunger Index that tracks hunger and malnutrition said on Thursday.
The report, prepared jointly by Irish aid agency Concern Worldwide and German organisation Welt Hunger Hilfe, termed the level of hunger in India "alarming".
In 2020, India was ranked 94th out of 107 countries. Now with 116 countries in the fray, it has dropped to 101st rank. India's GHI score has also decelerated - from 38.8 in 2000 to the range of 28.8 - 27.5 between 2012 and 2021.
The GHI score is calculated on four indicators -- undernourishment; child wasting (the share of children under the age of five who are wasted i.e who have low weight for their height, reflecting acute undernutrition); child stunting (children under the age of five who have low height for their age, reflecting chronic undernutrition) and child mortality (the mortality rate of children under the age of five).
The share of wasting among children in India rose from 17.1 per cent between 1998-2002 to 17.3 per cent between 2016-2020, according to the report.
"People have been severely hit by COVID-19 and by pandemic related restrictions in India, the country with highest child wasting rate worldwide," the report said.
Neighbouring countries like Nepal (76), Bangladesh (76), Myanmar (71) and Pakistan (92) are also in the 'alarming' hunger category, but have fared better at feeding its citizens than India, according to the report.
However, India has shown improvement in other indicators such as the under-5 mortality rate, prevalence of stunting among children and prevalence of undernourishment owing to inadequate food, the report said.
According to the report, the fight against hunger is dangerously off track. Based on the current GHI projections, the world as a whole - and 47 countries in particular - will fail to achieve a low level of hunger by 2030.
Food security is under assault on multiple fronts, it said, adding that worsening conflict, weather extremes associated with global climate change, and the economic and health challenges associated with the COVID19 pandemic are all driving hunger. "Inequality -- between regions, countries, districts, and communities -- is pervasive and, (if) left unchecked, will keep the world from achieving the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) mandate to leave no one behind," the report said.

Promoted

Further, the report noted that it is difficult to be optimistic in 2021 because the forces now driving hunger are overpowering good intentions and lofty goals. Among the most powerful and toxic of these forces are conflict, climate change, and COVID-19 - three Cs that threaten to wipe out any progress that has been made against hunger in recent years, it added.

India produces 3x less food than China, has equal population, yet is food surplus country???


India must be a truly spiritual land inhabited by spirits who need no food

China has to import lots of food to feed her vast population while India exports food, Indians don't eat food much.

Also cultivated land in India is 9 times of Pakistan and 17 times that of Bangladesh. So this population comparison is useless. With more population India also has more area to cultivate and feed its people.

Even China has less arable land than India but with same population Chinese food consumption per capita is 3 times that of India.

China produces 3 times as much and it still imports food for its people yet India produces 3times less and is an exporter... As I said before India does not add up no matter how you slice and dice.
They consume a lot of ‘’democracy", they don't need much food.

I think he meant food products in general . China is the global top producer of almost every food category, wheat, rice, meat, eggs, fish, vegetables , fruits.... by a huge margin, but because of the size of the population, China is still the world biggest food importer.
