DESTINED TO STARVE?

Originally published in Food Security: Past and Present, part of Famine and Dearth in India and Britain project blog (http://foodsecurity.exeter.ac.uk/).

In 1770, tremendous corporate pressure from East India Company led to a devastating Famine in Bengal. In the agrarian and artisanal economy of mid-eighteenth century Bengal, though labouring peasants were most affected by famine, the daily waged labourers like lime stone workers, boatmen and small businessmen died first. Local economic exchanges at the lowest layers of the economy ground to a halt, without much help.

The significance for present-day concerns is striking. The vulnerability of unorganized sector workers, migrant workers, and artisans remain same in the current situation, as it was almost three century ago..

DESTINED TO STARVE? is a four page comics connecting the suffering of people from the lower section of economic pyramid from the 18th Century and the present day in a single thread.

Cafe Mythbusting: The neuroscience of mental health disorders: 

FEATURE IMAGE revised

At a café in Kolkata, a gang of PhD dropouts talks about the neuroscience of mental health with their psychiatrist-friend. Argha Manna illustrates the genetic basis for neuropsychiatric disorders and the effect of environmental factors on them! A spat on Facebook led to an interesting discussion between four friends on mental health issues. The meandering conversation covers the possible genetic basis for a heightened risk of developing a mental health disorder, ranging from mitochondrial dysfunctions to epigenetics, and how science has just scratched the surface of this sensitive and multivariable issue.
