Why Do Beggars Prefer Doing What They Do Rather Than Having A Job?

Why Do Beggars Prefer Doing What They Do Rather Than Having A Job?

“Why Beggars Don’t Like Working” – 

Firstly, why do the beggars beg? Secondly, have you ever asked a beggar that if you offer him a particular job, then will he quit begging? Why Beggars Don’t Like Working ?

If you haven’t, then the next time when you give money to any beggars on street, don’t forget to just ask him this question.

In India, there are few people who are actually unable to work due to physical disorder and thus they are being forced to beg all the time.

But most importantly, even when everything is fine with some beggars, why do they beg? Well nowadays, people who are begging on the streets clearly don’t want to work in a good place. Trust me; if you ever tell them that you’ll give a job, then either they will back-answer you or they will run away.

These beggars beg because they easily get a lot of money by begging and that’s why they feel that there’s absolutely no need to take any physical pain, in order to earn money. You have mercy on these people and then you give them money, but these beggars spend it all on unwanted addicted things. In reality, these beggars don’t want to waste their life by working regularly. They don’t feel good to work hard each month. This is the main reason why the beggars prefer begging all the time.

I’m making this point clear once again, in India, there are very few beggars who helplessly choose to beg only because they’ve physical disorder.

According to the official data, the country’s capital has over 60,000 beggars. Further the reports states that at-least 90 percent of beggars came here from Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Jharkhand, Rajasthan and Bihar states. Now when you look at these figures then you’ll notice that there are no beggars from Delhi but they came here only to beg. In reality, the fact is that some of these beggars were brought to Delhi for begging. The people, who are running the gang outside the states, are bringing beggars from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore.

In the country, India has total 3.72 million beggars. Out of these, approximately 79 thousand i.e. 21 percent are literates. When we discover further, it is more surprising to know that out of these 79 thousand, nearly 3,000 have technical or some professional diploma courses . Now, don’t you think that these educated ones can seek any governmental work?

But still, no matter what, these beggars prefer holding a bowl in hand rather than working respectfully.

The bitter truth is that these people are begging because we continuously give them money in the name of sympathy. And now, begging which started with total helplessness has become their business. By begging, when these people earn somewhat 20 to 30 or 15 to 20 thousand rupees, then the whole month they don’t feel like working at all.

That is why in this initiative of Youngisthan’s “Beggar-Free-India”, we are repeatedly saying that our country cannot be built until and unless, this illness of begging is completely removed. There is also a need to wake up beggar’s self-respect. We need to explain these people that the Constitution of India gives them the fundamental right to work and not to beg.

Well, if these people decide to stop begging, then it’ll be state and central government’s moral duty to provide them with employment.

This is the main reason behind why beggars don’t like working. Do you have any thoughts? Leave a comment below.
