We are living in a world where we have access to a lot of comforts and earthly pleasures. These comforts saturate our mind making us forget about the suffering of the poor people. Their state of poverty will not change, unless we help them. In India our mental block is so strong that we forget to remember that even a beggar is a human being. We would either throw a coin at him with contempt or avoid him. India consists of over 20.5 million beggars who are sick physically or mentally. Quite a number of them are affected by leprosy and other contagious disease. Most of them earn their living by begging but, this does not heal their wounds. They long to love and to be loved.
India has about 80 million tribal scattered in about 461 tribal clan. Most of the tribes live in remote areas. The infant death rate is high among the tribal, malnutrition being the major cause. Most of them are illiterates. Slums are the paradoxes of the cities "Bigger the city, wider is the slum". Within the same area, one group of people live in luxury, while another group lives in utter poverty and helplessness. We can see slum areas beside the highways & railway tracks. In India there are over 100 million people who live in slums. The slums are the earth's hell. People live here in poverty, ignorance and superstition. Many live in slums because they have no place to go or no home to live in.
This is the condition of the darker side of the world. Most of us love our kith and kin but do not bother about the outside world. The only way to eradicate poverty is to love our fellow citizens irrespective of their colour, caste or creed. Hence, when an individual considers the whole world as his/her family, the world would be a better place to live in.
Help them or help us to help them.
