Ever Wondered How Much A Beggar Earns In A Month?

The Logical Indian

August 1st, 2015 / 10:26 AM

Well, so many amongst us fall for the innocent looks of a beggar when we see them tapping at the windows of our cars. Every time a lonely looking beggar comes by our rickshaw, we feel pity on him and hand him a penny or two.
When it comes to beggars, some of us detest the very sight of them, while the others either get horrified by them or just try and help them out with some food or money.
But, have we ever thought that this small act of kindness may just be the beginning of a huge salary, that too , not a small one, but a huge salary ranging in thousands per month?
However vague this may sound, it’s the truth of Indian roads. A beggar , who may look lonely and poor may earn in thousands per year.
It is difficult to say who’s truthful and who’s not, who’s innocent and who’s cunning but this is food for thought! So next time you help a beggar, think twice, probably you sponsor his food but yes , when it comes to money, a thought is required to see if you’re actually being conned?
