No one has asked me why I decided to switch to the social sector and the education sector in specific, 10 years ago, but I will tell you the story anyway.
So 11 years ago I used to be a journalist covering the health and education beats in Chennai. [1/n]
I had once visited a govt school for a story during the lunch hour when midday meals were being served. While waiting to speak to the HM I loitered around to where meals were being served and saw big fat worms that kids were removing from their rice and then eating the rice
Appalled, I sensed a story there, called our photographer, surreptioutiously took pictures of the worms in the food, spoke to ICDS, did a history of mid day meals and wrote a story about this which became quite popular
