India Asia Food Crisis

  In this July 31, 2011 photograph, tomatoes and other vegetables are brought by farmers to a wholesale vegetable market at Solan district of Himachal Pradesh 200 miles (320 kilometers) north of New Delhi, India. For the tomato farmers of northern India, trucking produce to New Delhi's wholesale vegetable market is a race against time. India, the world's second largest producer of vegetables and fruits, loses an estimated 40 percent of that harvest to lack of cold storage and inadequate infrastructure. India's food minister calls the rotting food shameful in a nation where hunger is so prevalent that nearly half the children are malnourished and underfed. (AP Photo/Mustafa Quraishi)
