Beggars are all around. They has their own style of begging. Some asks for money, some food, some for medicine, but I usually see beggars asking for food. Generally I treat them well, like a normal person, but I usually give children begging for food not money. What do you think?

I experience that a lot my friend. yesterday a beggar claimed into the jeep i was riding. and he asked if we could give him some money. and i gave some. the scary thing was the old lady next to me didn't gave him money and he sed something to the old lady I can't quite understand. but i think it's their own language. i think she cursed everyone who didn't gave him money.

I think that is the best thing to do, instead of money we just give them food.

That's a good thing to do, but the problem that there are some fake beggars, they have money but begging is their profession

I give beggars alms or food. We should treat them well. It is not that they like to beg from people money,but they are forced to do for survival. Those who are handicapped should be helped more. Others can do job and live but they find begging as an easy means. Begging should not be encouraged much as it makes them lazy to earn. We should only give to the handicapped people because they are helpless....
