World Food Day- What if there was no food!

Today is 16 October and World Food Day. We all know how significant is food for our survival. But what if there was no food in our lives?

1. People who live-to-eat would not be here.



2. The famous 'way' to a man's heart would not be through his stomach.

3. People had lesser tasks and world had been free from the national/worldwide issue of "What to cook in the next meal".

4. There would be less expenses and more disposable income for other needs and luxuries.

Average US Citizen spends $302 and average Urban Indian Rs.2,630 per month on food: Source Google.

5. We had only four senses. No Food, No Taste!!!

6. There would not be any lunch/dinner/coffee dates.

7. Earth had been over-burdened without food cycle, though there had been no mass killing for production of meat.


8. There would be absence of kitchen in homes which would mean some more space for other things you love except food.

9. Source of energy was from small regular naps throughout the day, sunlight or may be through electric-shocks- Ouch!!!

10. No birthday cakes, no pies/chocolates/muffins in gifts i.e. no grand sumptuous celebrations!

Since life had been colorless, odorless and tasteless without food, I am glad we are blessed with tastes, taste-buds and food.
Eat healthy and stay healthy and remember:
“We are what we eat'!!!

P.S. If you can think of more points please add on to the list!

Author's Note: There is plenty of food on earth for every being here yet many suffer with hunger badly. While some struggle with what they will choose to eat today, others suffer with what will they eat. Talking about India here, a vast population sleeps on hungry stomach. We all see beggars begging for food on streets and have heard the stories of people turning into criminals for one loaf of bread. We all internally feel miserable when we deny them for the money they ask for from us but we have been advised not to give them money, reason being mafia working behind them. If you see a beggar and want to give them something- give them things in kind. You see a hungry soul while walking and if you have money, buy him some food. You want to do charity- either donate in an institution or distribute packets of biscuits or something else to the needy. Though some beggars throw away the food you hand over to them but not all do so.

Let no body die of hunger. Spread the word. A very happy world foods day.

  1. The world without food will be so sad! The though over senses is disturbing - I can totally relate to it, as half of my taste buds do not work!
    I love the energy sapping nap (wonder how would people go on those romantic long drives) and fast food thought (lazy/old man's misery) Haha!

  2. Some interesting thoughts. Except for no. 3 "What to cook for the next meal", I'd want our world to have food always :D

    1. Thankyou Shilpa. Ah! Ditto I wish no one stays hungry in the world!!! By point no. 3 I meant about those brainstorming sessions where we often stuggle with 'what to cook' because of having too many options. :D

  3. What a thought provoking post, Shesha. Food is so central to our lives and if we didn't depend on it so much, our lives would be so different as you've described. We need it for survival but it's so much more than that, isn't it? Great post.

  7. Thank you for enlightening me; never knew it was world food day ! for our country, there are people who don't get one meal a day on one side and on the other side, I see so much of food being wasted... its a reminder for us to share when we have more, rather than wasting, and if you see a hungry person, give them something to eat; of course we eat in order to live .... nice post!
