Real Face of Begging in India

In its February issue Top Indian magazine “India Today” Magazine has published a survey about Indian beggars. Mostly, we people have very less authentic data available about the condition of beggars in India; therefore, this survey provides a lot of good information about the conditions of beggars in India and some of its findings very alarming like number of graduates and postgraduates beggars are increasing in India. Main points which comes out of survey are-

1) Average income of beggars in Metros is Rs 80.

5) There are more numbers of able body beggars in India than disabled beggars.
6) There are good numbers of beggars with graduate and post graduate degrees and there number is increasing constantly.

Begging has always remained a big problem for Indian society. In past, numbers of people and NGOs have tried their best to solve this problem of begging in India, however, most of these initiatives have failed very badly. From this survey one thing comes out clearly in front of us that begging has today become more serious problem and requires some serious action. However, most of the time, we see more talks on begging problem than anything productive done to solve this problem. To some extent, it looks that we people have accepted to live with this problem. There are many examples available where beggars have earned huge fortunes with begging. Some of the facts like entry of graduate and post graduate beggars are really alarming signs and show the increasing reach of begging in India.

Importance of clean environment

It is very important to take care of our environment because our health and our survival on the earth directly depends on the health of our environment. It is very easy to find dirt and pollution at many places across the world and a large population of the world is living in these bad and unhygienic conditions.

People are drinking unclean drinking water and they are breathing polluted air; so, this pollution of the environment is causing many people to suffer from various health problems.

It is very important for every individual in this world to understand that clea…

What is Age difference of Abhishek and Aishwarya? Is Age difference really matter in Marriages?

Abhishek Bachan and Aishwarya Rai Bachan hardly need any introduction and they are the most successful and best couples of Bollywood. They married on 20-4-2007 and that time, there were speculations about their marriage that will there marriage be a success or not? Till now their married life is going very smoothly and they become proud parents of a beautiful daughter Aaradhya on 16th Nov, 2012.

The marriage of Abhishek and Aishwarya was unique in one more way. Aishwarya Rai is older than Abhishek Bachan by 2 yrs and 2 months which is the opposite of the general trend in India where mostly groom age is more than a bride. Date of Birth of Aishwarya Rai is 1st November 1973 and Date of Birth of Abhishek Bachan is February 5th, 1976. Even after six years of their marriage, this matter is the main point of many talks and at many places where the age of the girl is more than a boy, then this example is given.


Abhishek Bachan has followed the example of his father Amitabh Bachan who has marri…
