India's result in nutrition will improve soon: UN expert 26.5.2017 deccanherald.com
India may have an abysmally low rank in a global index on battling hunger, but a United Nations expert believes that it will change for the better -- sooner rather than later. UN assistant secretary-general Gerda Verburg, on her maiden visit to India, said she was highly "impressed" by the countrys pace and "inclusive working" method.

It is my expectation not only in the Global Hunger Index (GHI), but also in nutrition," Verburg told PTI.

Ask questions to those in power, says Prez Pranab Mukherjee 25.5.2017 deccanherald.com
There is a need to question those in power as it is fundamental to preserving the nation and a truly democratic society, President Pranab Mukherjee said here today. He also underscored the need for greater accommodation in public discourse as a democracy will be the "loser" if people refused to hear voices other than their own. Delivering the Ramnath Goenka Memorial Lecture, he said all stakeholders in a democratic system, from parties to business leaders, citizens to institutions, have to realise that asking questions is good and healthy.
