Everyone know poverty means worse of life but I feel this is not only in India but everywhere in all over the world. Prices hiking problem, job receiving problem and poverty problem is everywhere. But in some country it is more and in other countries it is less. What you think it is true poverty problem is everywhere and poor people are residing in every country.

Yes dear, poverty is all over the world and in every country. In the Philippines, I am afraid that poverty will rule the country, there are family without house who lives in the street and begging for money. For me the biggest poverty in the world is in Africa, famine are so high. I myself belong to the poor family but trying so hard to overcome it.

Countries in Africa more especially Somalia, and others have people living in very precarious conditions. compared to them India and Philipines are far better. On account of natural calamities, famine etc. people are deprived of wealth.

That's why I'm still thankful to God that at least we are luckier than people in Africa. But as what I can see now, it's not impossible that poor people in the Philippines might become likely as poor as Africans.

Hi fanta, It is true dear. It is everywhere. We keep seeing these problems being reported. There might be some people in our respective countries who lives their life as normal - but if we notice there will be a lot more people who are suffering because of poverty. The lack of job opportunity, low salary, prices continuously increasing are the same problems we are facing.

fantabulus -- to be born in a poor family is a sin. Further after giving birth in a well to do family on account of fate when one loses wealth and becomes poor that is much more a sin. Poverty is there throughout the world. In India around 25% of people live below poverty line -- not being assured of food for two times a day. Even developed nations like USA, Britain have poor people living in it -- possibly due to their fate or their making. I have seen in USA a few people standing on the road with Board "Lost job. lost house on account of foreclosure. $1 please". Human nature also increases poverty in people. Rich amasses more wealth at the cost of poor.

Poverty is everywhere my friend so we have to save and work hard in order for us to survive.That's why some people turn to easy earning sites to earn more and easily because there is also scarcity in landing a good jobs these days :(. Poverty doesn't mean being worst in life it is a situation but you can have ways in overcoming it :).And it is not only in India but it is spreading around the world.Even the richest country is facing it now.

If you choose to be happy, you can be a happy person even if you are poor. So poverty is not one’s fault or a country’s but all over the world there are people with meager income, who doesn’t have a shelter, food to eat etc, who live below poverty line.

Poverty doesn't mean the worst out of life. We can be happy even if we are poor. Poverty is not only in India but it is all over the world. We shouldn't consider poverty as a hindrance to ones success. We must consider it as a challenge for us.
