Do we see all this in begging?

I think, we all India have learned to live with begging and we do not mind seeing large number of beggars in torn clothes and ugly faces begging in front of us. Begging has long history and tradition in India. In some religion, religious people used to collect their food by begging and rest of the time they devote to the meditation. Moreover, in number of religions, it is also believed rightful act to help the needy people by giving them money, cloth or food. However, today which beggars we see in front of us are not religious people or true needy person but some routine beggars whose job is to beg every day. In simple words, we can say that these beggars are earning their livelihood by begging.

The amazing fact in this whole finding about begging is that “Begging has even become a good earning source for number of people”. There are number of beggars who move around us and look very needy and socially isolated but in reality they are biggest exploiters of human emotions. They present such a sympathetic picture of them in front of us that we mostly feel forced to give them money. Numbers of similar examples are present and we all see them but we mostly ignore them because of great art of these beggars. I am describing one of my experiences for your help. This experience is about a beggar who does not have both hands and mostly wear religious outfit. He used to beg money in the buses around Ludhiana bus stand.

Mostly people find him so sympathetic that in one bus he get around 15-30 rupees. It takes hardly 5 minutes in a single bus and soon departe to nest bus. In an hour, he covers at least 7 to 8 buses and he works for around 10 hours. If we calculate all this then he earn from Rs 1050 to Rs 2400 in a single day and Rs 31500 to RS 72000 in a month. All this may look surprising but it is a big reality and real figures could be much larger then these numbers. Now there are number of questions which arise in front of us. Why this hand less person needs so much many? If he do not have both hands then who counts and control his money? Why this person poses as a religious person? Why he only moves in to a bus when it is full? Hardly anyone of us have answers of these questions but one thing is clear that begging has today become a more deep rooted profession and good way to earn money.

Benefit of Adding Fastag to the Vehicle (Paytm Fastag)

  Today, India is progressing in every field and we are seeing many new improvements coming to our lives. One such improvement is mandatory to use of fastag on all vehicles in India. With this change, we can see the saving of time of commuters and saving of valuable fuel. As per the Indian transport minister, with the use of fastag on vehicles, we can hope to see a saving of Rs 20,000 crore. I hope that it will improve the management of vehicles on the various toll plazas. I have many bad experiences on various toll plazas due to manual operation and high rush.  Already, toll collectors and people are finding this scheme of fastag very helpful. I have already installed fastag on my both vehicles two years back. So far, Paytm fastag is the most used fastag in India because it is linked to the Paytm wallet which makes it easy to add cash and make payments. I am also using Paytm Fastag on one of my main vehicles and my experience is very smooth with it. It is very easy to buy Paytm Fasta

Book review- "Wings of Fire"

“Wings of Fire” is an autobiography of former President of India and an eminent scientist Shri A P J Abdul Kalam. It is very important for every Indian and especially for youth to read this autobiography. It is not because he is a former president and an eminent scientist, therefore every Indian should read it, however this autobiography really has good knowledge to share with us, a knowledge which is very difficult to get elsewhere. This autobiography is different in many ways as it tells us many lessons with true examples. This book tells us the story of a Muslim boy, who became the President of a Hindu dominated country by hard world and dedication. It gives us an inside look into the lives of Muslims in India and relationships between Hindu and Muslim communities in India. It tells us, how common Hindu and Muslim respect each other’s religion. “Wings of Fire” is the story of a small boy achieving his dreams despite all the odds. This real story tells us the role of family, re

  Presently, India is seeing a new surge in the cases of Corona Virus, and the number of people dying from Coronavirus is already rising. So far more than 1.5 Lakh people have died from Coronavirus in India and it is a big number. When Coronavirus just entered India then I wrote this post that Is India ready for Corona Virus?  In the post, I discussed many points related to this virus. Two months back, it looked that Coronavirus is slowly going away from India and the active cases of Coronavirus decreased below 10,000 per day. However, now the number of cases in few states of India like Maharashtra, Kerala, Punjab, etc started to see an increasing trend which is alarming well for India.  Already, we have suffered a big loss from Coronavirus and we can't expect more blow from it. We suffered many ways from the Corona pandemic and many people suffered big financial losses due to lockdown. Therefore, no one wants to see again the time of lockdowns.
