Case studies

The historical perspective up to 1950. The traditional Indian food problem was one of wide fluctuations in production with periodical famines resulting from crop failures. But famines were generally confined to certain regions and the problem was largely a result of inadequate means of transport which prevented the quick movement of foodgrains to famine areas. With the development of railways and roads which enabled rapid transportation of food to the areas suffering from crop failure, famines of the disastrous kind and severity of the early days were largely eliminated.
