zindagi ka nam hai

Mama How Long Will You Go On Begging For Me

on the roadside
for a few coins
in the name
of charity
they come
search their
drops a few
coins humanity
our pain they
do not want to see
degradation deprivation
gives a bad name
to the community
if they could make
us disappear with
a magic wand it
would be so easy..
but we are eye sores

smile the other
one calm..

Can We End Beggary - No Never ... Answer.. Sweet Religion Keeps It Alive

I Always Wondered From Where They Got Their Eyes ..

Some of the beggars in this community , have the most beautiful eyes , and they are migrants , tribals who have chosen beggary as a profession , their main revenue comes from begging at traffic signals , but the most profitable days are the festive ones , eid , mahashivratri and mount mary to name a few including xmas and new year.

These girls become mothers at a very early age impregnated by their own relatives siblings strangers .. and the new born child begins working the streets in a few days perched on a sling on the shoulders of another child.

Their elders dont like photographers , mostly they sit where the kids beg , gamble drink and fornicate .. and make babies ...babies keeps hope alive drugged with Benadryl cough mixture .. most of the kids are semi nude .. to satisfy the child orglers ..

Of late you dont see them at the traffic signals because of the hefty RS 1200 fine .. for begging and loitering.

The kids are street smart.. love movies smoking some end up doing drugs petty crime and soft porn I am told .. marketed by the wicked in their community..

The good the bad the ugly once lived on a mound close to where I stay..
