Every country have a problem of beggar. today we have less food and millions of more mouths to feed. outlook has changed though not much. Today there are millions of willing workers whom we cannot give work and wages, when in place of food surplus there is actual food shortage, government and every public tells that beggars should be discouraged always. If we are unable to provide them job then how they will save their life without food. How can be beggars problem solved?

That is a good question you have stumbled across. I believe one can help them better by finding something for them to do to make them feel good about any kind of meal they are going to recieve. In our town, homeless is not so bad. If you want to help someone or you need help on a weekend in project, you can go down to the local Faith Mission and get 2 or 3 guys to help you for about 4 hours a day and you can pay them $20 each. I think people take pride in their work no matter what it is. So if they work to make a dollar, they will appreciate it more than if you just give them a dollar or food.

This is a serious social problem.But I don't think we should give them money and I do not pity them at all.Everyone have a pair of hands,and we all can make a living by working hard.Perhaps beggers can not get a formal job,but even selling empty bottles can make money.Why do they have the nerve to extend their hands. I am sorry that we have differnt opinion……

hi sahoo, yeh we should stop giving alms to them and definatelty we shouldnt give money to them as they use it for drinking or some other unwanted purposes. i beleive there should be some NGO formed for taking care of these beggars.we should avoiding building of these huts at places and should be given some good palce to stay. we should give them work.we should offer them food rather then money.
