On Radio they were asking about the beggars and begging - should we encourage it? There was some policeman who shared his opinion and he said something really good. When we see the beggar, we imagine our kids and then we feel sympathy and we give them money. He asked people to STOP imagining this because until we stop, begging will never go away from India. Imagining a better India, please kick the concept of begging out.
From other perspective, yes, I guess if we don't give money to the needy then how will they survive? I don't know how they will survive, but one has to lift his spirit up by doing something that he can, instead of giving up and begging. I don't have much to say nor do I know the real solution to this. However, I still can not agree that begging is the last option they have.
I surely discourage begging and beggars.
