At least 67 children have died from malnutrition in the drought-hit Thar desert region since December 2013. The Thar desert, which runs up to the border with India, is dominated by subsistence farmers who depend on beans, wheat, and sesame seeds for survival, bartering surplus in exchange for livestock.
