Passion And Profession: Beggary - Poem by Shashikant Nishant Sharma

When a man tried to give a 25 paisa coin to a beggar
The beggar refused to accept and said further
O sir, my mother and father
There is price hike everywhere
We accept one rupee coin or more
The man said louder
I can't give you more
The beggar said being impatient
Why are you standing?
And not understanding
Come and beg with me
I will pay you 50 paisa per client
Begging is immoral an illegal
The man tried to give counsel
The beggar replied with caution
Begging is my passion
Now it has become my profession
Thinking to expand my business
Cover more areas and make it larger
He uttered an offer
You join me, my brother
I will make you my branch manager
Of the new venture
The talk stops
Prevails a silence
He thought better to leave
Without letting anyone notice
Reality is far from our perception
Stop giving alms
Make a difference
Help if you can
Don't promote beggary
In the name of charity
This is the reality
{This was written after overhearing the conversation of the beggars and subsequent news of beggary as profession promoted by some gangs in Cities. Also a small documentary on Delhi Durdarshan channel showed how some greedy persons in beggary mutilated the limbs of small child to make them beggar. Since then I have not given any alms to any beggar.}
