Since March 2010, in what is now one of the most in-depth editorial projects in Indian journalism, Hindustan Times has sent reporters across the nation to investigate and chronicle the depth of the issues that make India one of earth's most unequal nations: hunger and poverty. Reported from cities,
streets, villages, court rooms and government offices, nearly 100 stories have tracked hunger and examined policies, finances and implementation failures. As India's food-security situation continues to be "alarming", according to the Global Hunger Index rankings for 2011, and as a national debate grows over how many Indians are poor, HT strengthens the "Tracking Hunger" series by focusing on the main effect of poverty - malnutrition.
