Street Childrens


I know that most of us had experience when you are enjoying the food at street and the beggar approached you for money. If you are accompany with women, you will definitely give little money to beggar but I don’t. Rupees does not the matter, but future is wholly depend on the current habit of that Child beggar. If you pay them, they will continue to begging and their parents will force them continuously.       

It is very difficult to imagine the lifestyle of the homeless street children’s. Their common job is rag-picking, in which boys and girls as young as 6 years old sift through garbage in order to collect recyclable material in other way round. Many street children also face harassment by municipal authorities and police. There is no need to say that India is one of the countries where many street children’s can be seen in addition to China, Russia, Africa and so on.   

I don’t know when the day will come when no one will be residing on street. But don’t know why it is not possible??. Why the number of street children’s is increasing??  It always makes me sad to see and specially when they ask me for one rupee or two rupee. The question is not of rupee but there is question of self dependence.We all have to join our hands to change our society and systems. Try to participate social activity as many possible as you can.

Atleast one thing I knows, poverty is not the only reason for such lifestyle. Since I am not economist or president, i can’t find the actual and factual reason for same and to what extent it is increasing, why it is increasing, and how it can be solved.

Many organizations are working on rehabilitation of homeless children’s as saw in movies and televisions but never found in practical life yet. To what extent they are taking effective steps.

Once I had read one of the articles on Beggars. One of the beggar was having 3 flat in Nalasopara (Mumbai) and he daily travel to Dadar (Mumbai) for bagging for money. I was shock. It is just like business. I feel so bad that they broken the trust of many general public including me. That news was published in many newspapers and television news channels.   

I know that I am not the only person who has posted picture on street child. But still wanted to express the feelings.


  1. Beautiful picture_poor children...their futures are pitiful as much as their present!

  2. not a great scene , grim sigh ,,,we hav to come forward to change it ,, nnice post i liked yr views :)

  3. This is our true picture .... this is India..this is us..Indians .. poor ..ilterate jobless and hopeless... Will someone take the onus ? Will someone eradicate this situation ? What is the point being a bloody nuclear country when we do not have basic for our citizens?while we consider ourselves lucky after we look at these fateful kids , God knows how many literate Indians are taking an initiative on their own to eradicate poverty and child labour and abuse from the country !!
    I am happy I am doing my bit thats the only contentment ! its the child who does not deserve this fate !!
    Nice thoughts and you are very practical and right ! Begging is a profession for many ..who cares .. but no kids should be brought into this .. they should get educated and play .. this is no age to beg or be a rag picker !!

  4. Thanks for understanding in nice and correct manner....we may be educated for our family...but on which way our nation going...god knows...

  5. Hi Amit,
    I totally agree with you. You have narrated my perception towards beggars and street children. We must not encourage them this way. We pay a lot of tax to the govt and still we see homeless people and beggars everywhere. And yes, begging has a big racket involved and it's a business to almost everyone who gets on road to beg. I don't even give a rupee to the handicapped person who begs, because there's someone behind who makes that person beg. I pity for their fate though.

    We see in the malls, when we are having burgers, these children make innocent faces and ask for food. I was observing a child in front of Mc.Donalds the other day. Anyone who saw the facial expression of that child would melt and buy a burger for that child. A lady did the same, she bought a meal for that child. If the child had starved for days, he should have taken that meal, sit somewhere and eat the meal. But, as expected, he kept the meal at a place, where he had lot in stock, and came back and stood outside Mc.D with the same expression. I was watching all this and the child gave me the same expression. I just stared at the child and the child din't even bother. He tried his trick some others.

    If they are bred this way, they'll never have the passion to study and do something in life. If they have the passion and determination, they would study and be independent even if they come from the street without a home.

  6. Hi Sims,

    Thanks for understanding. Even i have observed many situation just like u have shared your experience of McDonald.

    I feel very bad every time whenever i experience such situations.

  7. Such a beautiful picture. Thanks for sharing. Street children definitely don't deserve to beg. What they deserve even less is if they are orphans and cash machines for ruthless gangs. Perhaps if we give them food (not resaleable) and not money atleast we might prevent gangs from thinking of them as cash cows.

  8. are absolutely right KayEm...
