Do They Really Worth It??

I was on my way for tutions when i saw 4 yo 5 beggar boys aged between 6 to 7 years motivating one of their companion. Curiously i saw that boy and i was shocked when i saw that boy was throwing stones at pigeon who was in nest feeding her baby pigeons. I lost my temper and scolded that boy making him realise what he was doing was not at all right, i slapped him hard ( as i m short tempered and react quickly). From that moment onwards i stop giving alms to beggars. Sometimes looking at their condition we feel pity and help them. But do they really worth it? Wer those boys so heartless/feelingsless that they coudnt even understand if anyting wrong would have happened with mummy pigeon those baby pigeon would have suffered who were depending on mummy pigeon. Elders teach us alwaya help poor people, but looking at this situation i personally changed my mind. I made a firm decision of not helping any beggars, These beggars dont deserve to be helped by any peoples. Never ever feel pity for any beggar, those are all fake emotions. Happy Posting!!!

We cant blame them as they are not bought up in the surrounding as we are. U should not have slapped that kid and thats not a solution. U are saying all beggars are fake but there are many rich spoiled children who do such kind of things to animals or weaker children. Beggar kids life is miserable

@Nandita. I totally agree. There are wayy worse rich children than poor ones. Rich children are often so spoiled that they think they can get away with anything. I think that the original poster took it a bit far in this situation.

THat was wrong of you to slap that child like that. I would have been fine with you scolding him but not slapping him. you have no right to put your hands on other peoples children.

Hey dont worry my slap was not that harsh. I just did with an intention to make him realise that he was hurting ininocent pigeon. He will remember this incident throught his life.

There is no way to escape from the realities of this world. There have been the two realities in the incident. One is that the boy was poor begging small kid and the second became cruel to the pigeons. But should not we try and find out the real possible cause of his stone throwing? It might be the result of the negligence of his parents towards him and he did not want anyone on the earth to be attentive towards the kids. Talking of the fake emotions, we cannot realize at one go which one is real or which one is fake. As it goes, emotions are the real representation of a human soul and a soul may be a Mephistopheles (good spirit) or a Beelzebub (bad spirit). But the assessment of it is very difficult. As an optimistic we should not try and and find out anything wrong or if we find, we must try and correct it. Are cruel people worthy of pity or kindness? This is the question of this century. Modern psychology has proved if there is any escape for cruel people from cruelty is loving them to the extent so that they understand the importance of being to others. Love them to an extent that they start giving you so much value and respect to approve on your thoughts. Let's hope for the change.

Hi Rohit Welcome to myLot! Cruelty may be a result of the surroundings, circumstances and up bringing. Neglect, abuse, poverty can turn many children into volatile and cruel youngsters. It is very difficult to rectify this damage at a later date. Rapists, serial killers and psychopaths may never reform and when the evil impulse takes over, they have to indulge themselves. In such cases humanly, it may prove to be impossible.

Hi... you may be right in the case when someone is not trying to change, actually he has given up the hope of changing himself. Yes, we have to have some steps for these neglected kids. We cannot wait, instead we must stand and sweat for reform.

We have to live in this world and we have to enjoy and suffer our creations. All that you see in front of you is the creation of mankind. Giving alms to beggars may not be the answer. By the way be careful when you go on the same path again, who knows what kind of a revenge these juvenile delinquents have in store for you. Every day I see pups barely a few hours old, with their eyes not even open, venturing out into the streets for food. Children, women,old and destitute people are fighting with these dogs for left over food. Now, how desperate is that? Obviously alms may help them to survive but are we here to just survive?

Those boys are so little who are doing these things, not all beggars are same. Beggars are also human beings, they also have feeling. So it depends on the person, some tell truth some are lier.

if a person is handicapped, aged, or diseased then you can help him because they are the ones who find difficult to stand on their own legs but never in your life help anyone who is able bodied because they are the ones who are not interested in working the simply beg to lead their lives. it is these persons who are indulged in such activities you mentioned.so i would say if you want to help, only help those persons who are in need of help.

I dont know why but everytime I see a beggar in the street I feel bad. If I could help more I would. It is better to give them food though than money.

People use begging as a prfession, in third world countries. The kids were doing the wrong thing and you did the right thing to some extent. They got what they desrved. Instead of giving alams to beggers, we should help the poor and needy one or feed them when ever we think of charity Happy mylotting.

Well... First off one group of poor children does not define all poor people, so not helping those in need seems like a strange reaction to this. Secondly, slapping a child who you do not know seems a bit much. The scolding was probably a good thing to do, because when they are beggars they probably have no one to teach them what is right or wrong. You scolding him was a good thing to do, because he needed to know that what he was doing was wrong, but you slapping him was probably unnecessary. You have to realise that these kids you saw probably are hardly able to survive and that is why they don't know what is right or wrong. Try to think these things out rather than saying you will never help those in need again because of one incident. Have a good day :)

Rucha you really slapped him? Lol. That was totally unexpected. Did you ask them why they were throwing stones? Were they jealous of those babies getting fed by their mom pigeon or they were just having fun? If there were no one to take care of them, just think where would that boy go cry? He has no shoulders and no one to teach what's right or wrong..it would definitely hurt. Just sharing my view. I hope they stopped doing what they were doing the next day onwards..

Beggars because they think that they are beggars it is ok for them to do something stupid or bad. For a little beggars they usually makes an excuse that they do it for fun because they don't have toys or no family to take them to the amusement park. Little beggars can't be guilty because they may never get education from adult around them to appreciate the living things. They live in hard world in hard situation, I think if someone take time to teach them how to appreciate life they will not do something like you have experince with them.

The boys are not guilty for what they are.The lows of the street make them agressive. We don`t come to this world as beggars and villains.What about their parents and the institutions to take care of them and to show them what`s good and what`s wrong.
