Why Do They Beg?
Begging is a compulsion, a vocation, and a sign of the larger injustices of our times. This video story takes a look at a day in the life of street children in Delhi. What is their future?
These kids are only a few of the millions on the streets of the city. While most of the middle class is immune to such images, sometimes irritated, and occasionally curious about who they are, would they give them a chance in this competitive rat race, allow them to change things for themselves?
There are several rumors and truths about street children, some say that they are part of gangs, that they are being made to fake their problems, they don't actually have broken arms... But the real question is, even if all this is true, why does the situation reach this point? Can we ever create a world in which people don't have to beg?
