Swaminathan S A Aiyar, in Times of India, writes that the ban on food exports form countries like India is one of the main reasons for the fueling of the prices across the world.
IMHO, every country will first protect its own interest than that of the world. That’s what the “Western World” has been doing for ages.
During the British Territory days, East India Company / British Government always wanted the “Lagaan” irrespective of what was the state of the crops. They cared a damn about the weather. They cared a damn about whether crop was good or something wrong happened.
Now if the countries protect their own interests, what is the harm?
I object to Aiyar’s article making this item as an agenda… an item to even think about.
