Are thousands of Indians being forced to leave their villages for cities and towns because there aren't enough jobs at home and farm incomes are drying up? Agricultural experts call this 'distress migration.' India's urban population has risen much more than the rural population from 2001 till the latest census. Is it just a trend or a threat to India's food production and food security?
