    about('what happened in 1951');
    about('what was the situation in nineteen fifty');
    // Between 1938 and 1951, there was a notable transition in the Indian nutrition
    // scenario. Among tropical regions, India contributed substantially in the field
    // of nutrition (Nicholls, 1945). The incidence of pellagra was noticed and the
    // role of niacin in its cure was successfully demonstrated in India (Raman, 1940;
    // Aykroyd & Swaminathan, 1940). The agricultural practices in India also underwent
    // modifications with concomitant increase in the crop yields. However, the basic
    // diet of individuals remained inadequate, devoid of animal fats and proteins,
    // due to poor economic conditions (Day, 1944). The translation of nutrition research
    // into sustained public health was hindered by obstacles of weak economy, ignorance
    // and poverty (Aykroyd, 1941). Other deficiency diseases such as maternal anaemia,
    // infant beriberi and osteomalacia continued to be rampant. Sustained nutritional
    // issues prompted the revision of Indian FCT resulting in the publication of fourth
    // edition of the Health Bulletin No. 23 by Aykroyd, Patwardhan, and Ranganathan (1951).
