Hidden story of Begging Business in India

Buy Book Hidden Story of Begging Business in India  to Know more on this Topic

Today everyone around the world is aware about the growth story of India, however very less people are aware about the increasing trend of begging in India. Present beggars of India are much superior to their previous generations. In simple words, we can say that these beggars have brought professionalism in their jobs. I am not kidding; it is true and happening everyday around us. In some of the big cities turnover from the begging is millions of rupees every day and number of big shotguns of the society are managing this business.

It is very easy to see these beggars performing various new and old tricks for begging in buses, busy markets, and parks and around public places. Some of the beggars of India are so intelligent that they use all kinds of the psychological and emotional tricks to make people feel sympathetic with them. An average good beggar earns around rupees 200 to 500 per day and some expert beggar even fetch more handsome deals. In India, it is very easy to find number of beggars who have earned good fortunes with begging.

As per an articles published in the leading Indian daily, a women beggar was able to save good many, buy few insurance policies, marry her two daughters and a son, and contracted a three room home. These are not some of the stories in isolation, there are number of other baggers who have achieved similar or better heights. Most of these beggars are masters in playing with our emotions and making us to pay them. An average beggar beg at least in front of 1000 people in a single day and at least 100 people among them give these beggars from single rupee to ten rupees.

However the major problem is that most of the people are so much busy with their daily lives that they do not give any attention to this field. Overall begging is a great resource generator for many people and many people in India are happily employed with the begging work. However, in this rosy picture there are hidden many ugly facts which requires our immediate attention. These ugly facts are exploitation and torture of number of innocent children and people for forcefully pushing them in to this business.

Recently during my bus journey, I got to see a small girl with one burned and stinking hand carried away by a slightly bigger girl. The small girl was unconscious and it was very difficult to conclude that this girl was alive or dad. However the older girl was busy in begging on her name. Now by giving money to these beggar, we silently encourage more such kind of children to be burned, tortured and defamed. Begging needs an immediate attention from all of us, otherwise human exploitation will go on unnoticed behind this flourishing trade.
