an 8 year old post recalled ....6

 born to beg

it happens every where. i saw it again last month.

a small  boy crawls in front of me . he lifts his half leg and extends 
his hand.i toss a coin and then regret my action.

why did i encourage child abduction , maiming and forced begging ,
 albeit indirectly.

it was in the  papers a few months back . in one of the villages not
 farther than 20 kilometers from the city a gang is accosted and 
beaten up.  on the fear that they abduct children.  the gang is handed
 over to the police . but chances are that they are back in the street
 in two days.

think of the stories that we hear   of f and on.  kids are picked up 
and  taken to dens.  they are  blinded  amputated or  disfigured in
 a suitable  manner. they are then taken to streetsand made to beg .
 and the owner  keeps an eye on his pet animal. lest it escapes .

he should not have been thus bothered.  fear has been instilled so
 early  in life and in such a cruel manner that the boy will never 
ever think of  escape or normal life.

think of the parents who lost the child and probably know that the
 child may still be alive. probably with one eye, half a leg and no
 fingers ;  possibly chained and caged , beaten and dragged.

1.  are we supposed to trust the law and sit tight  or do we have
 the right to react , if needed , violently  ?
2. can't someone start a national movement to rehabilitate
all those child beggars in one lot ? will it be too difficult for
the government to fund and support such a move ?
3. shall we take an oath here and now not to give alms to any 
child ?  (this will make the forced begging scheme non viable )
