HJS educates the Karnataka Govt. on providing eggs to school children

Udupi: Karnataka Government had decided to provide eggs to school children under its ‘Government Nutritional Diet Program’. Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has been protesting against this decision. A delegation of HJS, under the leadership of Shri. S. S. Bhat, the local spokesperson of HJS met the Deputy Chief Minister of the State in this connection. A representation was also given to him on behalf of HJS to withdraw such decision. The Dy. CM heard them out and agreed that it was necessary to take review of the decision and assured that he would convey the demand of HJS to the concerned authority. A copy of the representation has been given to the Deputy Commissioner for forwarding it to the Chief Minister as also to the Education Minister of the State.

HJS has mentioned the following adverse effects of giving egg to school children:

1. Children can be given uniform to develop feeling of equality; but where matter of food is concerned, they are divided into two groups as vegetarians and non-vegetarians. So the principle of equality cannot be made applicable here.

2. Children have the tendency of copying each other’s habits etc. Therefore, even those children who are vegetarians will also feel like eating eggs.

3. Instead of providing things like eggs that is a ‘tamasik’ food, children should be given ‘sattvik’ food like milk and bananas etc.

4. Eggs will have to be given either in boiled form or in the form of omelette. Therefore, teachers would be busy in making dishes of eggs rather than teaching.
