We can often see beggars At the corners of streets or roads with shabby clothes sitting on the ground, stretching out their hands And there would also be a bowl or something concave with some coins in it . Some of them seem to be disabled, some of them carry their children and beg money for them, others sing sadly in front of you. we would feel sorrow while we see such people and cannot help having compassion for these beggars, so we give money to them. Nevertheless, It would be better not giving money or to pay sympathy to the beggars because we do not know if they are really beggars or homeless or most of them are just too lazy without devoting their strength to work and also some of them are drug addicted who will spend the money on drugs or alcohol.
As the word beggar means a person that begs for money or food, it does not mean the same as homeless or poverty stricken. There is no proof that those who are lying on the streets are actually homeless. They could go home, into the warmth, with their loving family but they don’t do it. According to some news reports some beggars are even richer than other people who give them money. These people make money readily by cheating on other kind people. such people do not beg , but make their living by other means. By giving money you are encouraging those who are homeless to stay on the streets,
The beggars are doing the beggary as they are lazy to work. The main causes for them are that they’re poor and being unable to hold a regular job due to all sorts of problems like mental,emotional, physical, educational, and so on. Easy money is an extreme attraction for the lazy one sitting around all day collecting spare money off of passersby. With such an easy come they don’t eager to work at all . By giving money to these sorts of people, far from helping them not only you are encouraging them to be lazy but also you are encouraging others to do the same.
Your kind offer will lead them to more serious laziness than ever. we can’t know how the beggars use the money they received. We give them money for the purpose that they can buy food and clothes . However, some of them don’t buy necessities but they use it on alcohol, tobacco and drugs. Thus, we are encouraging them to continue their bad habits using too much drugs and alcohol or helping them commit crimes and may cause them to die.
It’s foolish Just making you feeling better be the reason of helping beggars . After all, the most helpful way to assist beggars is according to this Chinese proverb that it is better to teach them fishing than giving them fish.
Beggars are commonly found in India. They are seen in every town, city and village in India. The core areas of activities are the places of pilgrimage and worship. They sit on your heels on the banks of rivers, near temples and other busy places. They wander from street to street, from one locality to another and beg for food and money. They accept with grace whatever is given to them. But, sometimes they pursue people so consistently that people get tired of them.
Some people give money or food to beggars in order to get rid of them and not due to pity. Some beggars are so young and strong they do not justify charity at all.
There are few justifiable cases of begging. Those who are paralyzed, lame, deaf, dumb, and blind or disabled, are unable to earn their living. Some are pitiable states that evoke pity and compassion. These poor beggars are well versed in the art of singing religious songs. Some beggars have very melodious voice. Their sweet voice attracts the passing persons. These singing beggars are mainly in the trains and buses and they fascinate travelers through their hymns and devotion.
Sometimes, a deaf and dumb beggar is seen. It is also common to see a beggar who is suffering from leprosy. These people, suffering from leprosy are carried from one place to another in a manually driven cart. These beggars are well acquainted with human psychology and beg according to the inner way of thinking of the people. While many of the begging cases are justifiable, some beggars also cheat innocent women. They sometimes even steal the money and jewelry of these women.
The number of beggars in India is increasing. These beggars are living on the earnings of other people. It’s a pity that even strong and fit people in India resort to begging. They further indulge themselves in drinking and gambling. Their bodies become sick. They carry the infection with them and wander from place to place. Therefore, are answerable, to a large extent, for the spread the diseases and immoral values.
Begging by healthy and fit people must be banned in India by law. Legislation should be enacted to stop this profession. However, the justifiable cases should receive help and must be gainfully employed. Street begging is really a nightmare for India. The modern Indian people will not be won over by any religious sentiment. Therefore, the beggars are not treated the way they expect to be treated.
