3 little beggars ... Jamila, Anila nad Sarah!

mom asked me to drop him to his place which was close to my home... so i went ... as i was dropping him i spotted three girls, (mangney walis kinds) ages : 6- 3 and a baby not a month or two old...:(

the eldest came to ask for money and since i left with no shopping desire i didnt had any... i gave her one ruppe.. with a sad face, wishing i had more... which she took... and my mind took it all in... three small kids in this part of the neighbopurhood... wandering, with a one month old... and i am sure they are hungry and thirsty... and that kid in their hand... i dont think she is old enuf to stay hungry or thirsty for long...

on the way i regretted not having any money.. but i thot since they are here only and simply sitting a... may be i can catch them

once home i thot may be its ok i shudnt think so seriously and they wud be gone by now... and they arent going to die... if u r not going to take care of them.... God will somehow send them something...

but my better self took hold of me and said, so we dont do a thing even when we easily can... and so i went into the kitchen... took some fruits, without telling mom...

to explain to her and get her agreement... fearing she will make me understand something i dont want to... i didnt say a word... went in packed stuff for them to eat, and went back to the place i saw them hopin they were still hanging there... but when i entered the street, my heart went down when they were not where i last saw them... but i thanked god when i saw one of them sitting on the barrier... road barrier...

i called them gave them food and an empty water bottle... in my hurry i didint fill any water... they took it so i asked them abt their family and why they were here... etc... she told we were here to get some money to buy food and milk... since i had given the food... now wat was left for them was to get milk... i had plenty at my place... so i went back got milk for the baby in the pepsi ltr bottle... enuf for the kid to last for the day...

when i came back the girls had laid the baby down on their chunri and feeding themselves with the food i had given... i was glad...

i thought, i told them to eat and then come with me i will drop them home , which they understood as , "stop eating sit with me and ill drop u"... i tried to horn to tell them othetwise byut they didnt understand ... so i got out of the car... to where they were to explain them ... i told them to feed the milk to which they said they dont have her feeder i said... how can u bring the kid out wat if she dies of hunger, she said one of her sis already died like that... i took the bottle cover poured some milk and tried to feed the infant... she drank some ... she kept crying the whole time in the car and then i dropped them to the basti... i had thoght i wud go chat with their mom and ask them why they were letting these girls to do it but the answers i already got from the girls..

We have two mothers, our father is in gao... e said he was sick and left us..:P sick yeh right... one of the mother works does the same thing i beleive and one sits at home? Why? dont know...:D

Why dont u work?

I did in a big house i cleaned and cleraned it was way big...

then my mother said dont...

How much do u make in a day?...sometimes 50 sometimes 100 bucks...

and wat u get from that money? Aata,

Do u have enuf to eat...? Sometimes sometimes not

do u take of for the dday after a breakfast? sometimes sometimes not...

Bhook nahi legti? Lagti hai

How much that women was paying for work...? only 500

Now i get the answer. when they go begging they make minimum 50

50 X 30 + 1500

swhile the woman gives only 500 for a month.

When money is all u need urr mind guides u the best possible route, in their case it is begging



Child laybor or begging... is there anything they are left with when thier parrents dont have means to support them?...not really unless we take them in... and do wat their parrents cant...

but are we willing to do that... I for one u for one?

I am still wondering!

I dont know if i will ever see them again... or am willing to change their lives... completely...for if i am not... nois there a reason for me to go ahead?
