Human beings are driven by many phisical, emotional, and pshycological forces which spring from within us . Hunger is one such drive and the most basic one. Consequently , food is considered to be the most basic need of human beings. Nature supplies us with abundant food, but we have made our culture so that there is a great divide between the select rich people and the starving many. The select few have all the luxury of food and the starving many do labour each moment for a grain, yet many sleep hungry. It is this inequality of our culture which is proclained in Nasira Sharma's short story "Hunger" where we see the poorest of poor labourer kasim and the amateur journalist Rizwan fighting with their hunger.
