The title of the story hunger is quite appropriate. The entire story revolves around the theme of hunger. The wrost consequence of unemployment is proverty and the deaths due to hunger and starvation. Rizwan, the main character of the story is an educated unemployed youth.
kasim, the rag seller belongs to a proverty-stricken household. He is uneducated ans works as a manual labourer. There have been several deaths in his family due to starvation.
Thus, the central idea running through the story is the problem of hunger.
However, we are suprised when the story begins- we are told that the people were eating and drinking. But, gradually the author leads us to discover the underlying message that she wishes to convey.
hope this helps.. :)
