Food is the basic necessity for human survival and evolution. A region with different food species and their abundant growth and availability demonstrate better consumption pattern of different food items. The purpose of this study has been to identify food varieties and energy consumption ratio among people with low and high income levels among thirty randomly selected Bengali Hindu families of Kolkata, east India. In addition the study also investigated the influence of income on the availability and abundance of different food items and their corresponding amounts. The survey indicated that people from low income groups demonstrated lack of key nutrients in their regular diets with symptoms of deficiency diseases. Income has a direct effect on the consumption rate of foods. Low income and illiteracy were found as the two main factors of difference between the two economic classes. The study further highlights that higher income was associated with better consumption of nutritious food. The current volume will be useful for those involved in research and development in food, food preferences and food habits, nutrition sciences, ethnicity, socio-economic and cultural relations.
West Bengal is a multi-ethnic, multi-lingual and multi-religious state of India. Muslims, comprising about 27% of the state's total population, are the principal and largest minority of this multi-religious state. Sociologists and social anthropologists have studied the social organization of many Indian communities such as the Tribals and the Hindu castes but unfortunately such studies on the Muslims of West Bengal as well as India pertaining to their society, economy, culture and ethnicity are very insignificant causing ample loopholes in our perception and information on this very large minority from empirical point of view owing to lack of fieldwork. The present book is an attempt to examine the socio-economic and educational situations of the Other Backward Class (OBC) Muslims of West Bengal. Moreover, an especial attempt has also been made here to find out the factors contributing as blockage in their development and social change. As the book is an outcome of a doctoral research, it is mainly based on primary data. Moreover, various relevant published and unpublished literature have also been consulted besides authors' empirical observations of the people under study.
In Mauritius, complex linkages between ethnicity and poverty exist. In an economic domain, discrimination emerges as a critical factor, affecting experiences with poverty and exclusion. Discriminatory processes play a role in the creation and maintenance of an ethnically-segmented labour market, and also reduce the mobility potential of education. In a political domain, the ethnically unrepresentative state distributes key resources and services with bias and some people face additional obstacles in their access to state institutions and resources. In a social domain, ethnic values play an important role in the social exclusion and isolation of some people within their ethnic groups. The causes and manifestations of poverty differ according to ethnicity. For Creoles, their experience with income poverty is largely shaped by their economic and political exclusion as a group. They are discriminated against in the economic domain, and are inadequately represented in state bureaucracy and politics. For many Hindus (especially widowed Hindu female-heads), and ethnically-mixed persons, an inability to draw upon social networks leads to poverty and further social isolation.
