Helloww Everyone! Well I’m back with another one! this blog is dedicated to our own precious and respectable beggars in India. You won’t understand what to do when these types of beggars will come to you and look direct into your eyes with most innocent face and you have to give them because of the pity you feel on them. These are the most innocent and clever types of people who will make you feel good and frighten at the same time. Fear for what? I’ll tell you.
So here we are to discuss about some types of beggars in India. Tighten your seat belts please!
1. The Puppy Face.
Oi Oi! aammm.. Sorry about that :p This type of beggars will come to you, look at you in the face with ‘that’ puppy face and asks you if you could give some money. You’ll give a 10 Rs. note to them and they will be like ,”I asked for 50 Rs.”They’ll say in the tone of ‘give it or take it, I don’t want your chillars (Coins)’. You will stand still there thinking about what the heck just happened here and he will leave you their with your money you tried to donate. Did he just insulted you? I mean he refused to take 10 rs.? I mean you can buy two chocolates of 5 stars in 10 rs., you can have tea with a packet of biscuits in 10 rs., you can buy a packet of Lays in 10 rs., you can even have a swiss roll in 10 rs.! My God….
2. The Extreme Stubborn Kids
I have a story to tell now. In 2015, it was our school picnic and me and my friends were roaming in the garden of India gate in a beautiful weather. Suddenly couple of kids came and asked us for some money or food. I took out a packet of biscuits from my bag and gave them. I felt good and they left. I followed my eyes in whichever direction they were going. They went to some other kids and hid that packet in a plastic bag and what I saw that it was full of packets of biscuits, chips etc. They were collecting the stuff God knows why. I ignored it and we all sat under a tree and took out our lunch boxes and the beautiful smell of food were increasing the urge to eat the whole meal. After 2 minutes a couple of other kids of the same gang came and asked for the packets of biscuits. My friend asked if they could take a plate of biryani. They refused and again demanded the same thing. We said we are out of them you can take a plate of biryani or just go. They started misbehaving and saying unnecessary things. One of the girl shouted at them and they left.
I mean if you have any self respect and you love your life then just give them what they want. You can find them on traffic signals, monument places, parks and markets. Almost everywhere in India. God save the people who face this type of people daily. I wish them good luck.
3. The Well-Wishers (Umm Probably).
These are mostly the woman beggars. These beggars are like the age of your Grand mothers and they won’t ask you to give money, they will praise you with an innocent face and if you give them money you’ll be more praised. If you don’t have anything to give their wishes will become negatives. If you want your future to be good then you have to give them what they want. So if you find this types of Amma anywhere just go and give some money otherwise get ready for the bad wishes for yourself.
4. Rickshaw Puller with a Patient.
“Can you see this person lying on this cart who is really compelled and helpless. He has a very huge disease which needs more and more money to live his life. Just look at this person and if you have a heart then donate some money to him……” the loud speaker placed behind the patient has a recording of these type of dialogues to make you feel more pity on them. They seems so annoying and loud that you should literally stop talking because your partner can’t listen what you are trying to say. And the most important part, the patient will lay there and just sleep without any worry what is going on in the world and that rickshaw puller will just drag the cart here and there even in the worst summer of Delhi. God knows why their heads don’t burst by listening to that loud recorded voice of a person.
5. The Miraculous Baba with super powers!
You can find them on Temples, Dargah, under a Banyan tree and I don’t know where ever they want to sit. In front of temples they will dress an orange gown and orange turban with a necklace of beads which are called as Rudraksh. They will tell you the future, your jobs opportunities, your marriage future, your AIPMT result scorings etc. etc. He knows better than God and that is why you have to pay them in thousands and hundreds. In front of Dargah or Mosques, they will dress in a green gown with black turban and a bunch of peocock feathers to brush away all the sins you have done just by doing some strokes of it on your head. They are one of the loudest beggars because they will shout and scream the praising words and call you near and give them whatever you have. You have to pay them same as the aboves. You cannot refuse to give them money otherwise they will curse you!
Oh My god! yeh mera India. I don’t think there are any other country where we find these types of beggars but I think Pakistan could be the same as India. I seriously don’t give money to every beggar on my way but if I have some extra thing I will give no matter how many thousands he have stored in his bag or any other place. I am not saying do not give and donate. Please donate as much as you can because there are hundreds of people waiting just for your help! You don’t know how much difficult is to live without food all day long. If you would ask me to do it, I would donate to the NGOs and organisations who help slum people and help their children for education.
I wish I made it make you understand things I wanted to say.
Thanks A lot for Reading!
