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.
