Begging a Business or a Matter of Social Neglect? Open Debate (Begging in India)

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

Begging is very common around the world and there are millions of people around the world who are indulged in begging. In general no one likes begging and beggars; however, sad truth of life is that begging has become integral part of present social system and it is flourishing. 

In this article, I want to start a new debate that does begging is a business or it is a matter of social neglect? 


Begging, Business, India, beggars, begging for money
Begging in India

 I will discuss both aspects of begging with you and I will like you comments and opinions regarding it. 

1) Begging as A Business – I started writing about beggars ten years back and found many strange and unbelievable information about them. First information was about their earning. As per few independent studies on beggars, it was found that beggars are earning between Rs 500 to Rs 1500 per dayin India with average earning of Rs 800 per day. These studies were conducted by leading news channels, newspapers, social welfare communities and independent researchers. 

Begging, Profession, Begging, business, I also tried myself to calculate average earning of a beggar then I found that each beggar is able to earn Rs 500 if he visits at least 500 houses a day or sits at a busy place. Any amount of more than Rs 500 is a good amount to live a comfortable life in India whereas a hard-working labourer earns only Rs 300 for eight hours of hard work. On festivals or on special occasions, earnings of such beggars touch even higher levels. 

Last years, there was news in local news paper that a female beggar died in local hospital and left behind 3 lakh rupees in cash and 6 lakh rupees in bank. From time to time, we hear numbers of such news where beggars surprise us with their earning. If we go by such information and news then sometimes, it looks that all beggars are not just victims of social neglect and there are many who are doing it professionally. 

begging, social neglect, 2) Begging a matter of social Neglect – The one thing about which most of people will agree is that begging is a great matter of social neglect. There are fairly large numbers of beggars in our world who are neglected by family members, relatives and society. Therefore, only option remains available with such people is begging. Once I talked to a old beggar then he told me his story. He told me that once he was a rich man with good transport business; however, misery stuck one day and he lost few of his trucks to fire and finally his business finished. His wife and son also abandoned by sighting his poor health. He told me that his poor health does not allow him to work and there is no one who can take care of him; therefore, only option available with him is to beg. 

 However, bad part is that not all beggars are physically weak or abandoned people, many people are just present in begging to earn quick and easy money. Mostly, people have sympathetic view towards beggars; therefore, these people try to exploit human weakness. It is duty of everyone in society to clean our system and create a beggars free world. By providing better shelters for genuine beggars, we can stop them from begging and to stop fraud beggars, we need strong laws.

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. Whereas if we live in a clean environment then we can live a healthy life and we can achieve this by understanding the importance of clean environment.

Sadly, we see very less being done to address this matter and we are slowly creating more polluted spaces on earth. Today, it is very hard to find clean places at several parts of the world. Slowly, the governments across the world are opening eyes to address this issue.


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

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…
