Everyone can be labeled as poor in one way or another. The list includes not only: Weak, hunger, sick, homeless,landless, crippled, beggar, mad, slave, street vendor but also the solder in war, saint, loser of the world including a millionaire after crash of the stock exchange, popular artist who finds no buyer for his/her works, an expert who finds no place for engagement, a politician who finds no position in the mainstream politics and an intellectual who finds no job for engagement-all are poor in relative terms. Poverty has been perceived from various prospective. All perceptions and interpretations are equally significant. Moreover, the poverty is the matter of abstract for some school of thoughts and it is matter of discourse and debate for others.

Well, that is so true and I do agree with you on that. That is really what poverty is.
