India begging - Your Shot - National Geographic Magazine -- Kristian Bertel

Photograph by Kristian Bertel, Your Shot

Begging has grown at a significant rate in India. It is estimated that half a million people in India are beggars. The government, varied organizations, activists claim that many measures have been taken to abolish begging and it has been successful to a certain extent. But the trend of begging still continues. Indians are very orthodox, God-fearing and have a religious frame of mind that compels them to do charity. And one easy way is to visit a nearby temple and give alms to the beggars there.
