The Aahaar Kranti mission is designed to deal with the peculiar problem being faced by India & world-hunger & diseases in abundance. According to estimates, country produces as much as 2 times the amount of calories it consumes. Still many people especially children in the country are malnourished. The main cause of this is a lack of nutritional awareness.
