India’s begging schools

India’s poor children ‘begging for a future’
Some poor families in India, unable to send their children to school, have taught them to work as street beggars.
Their parents argue that such an unconventional education makes sense as the children will not get the opportunity to do anything else.
Sixty years after independence, we have this.!
While our politicians and leaders go about in executive jets,
live in lap of luxury, swindle thousands of crores,
go on international jaunts and state visits as if they come form
a first world rich nation and talk about democracy, endlessly
brag about super power status.....blah blah blah...
Truly, we are a nation of hypocrites.
