A beggar in Varanasi (India),
In India the problem of beggary has assumed a stupendous proportion. Beggars of today have adopted beggary as a profession, it has changed its form in the modern period and the problem has become a colossal one.
Moreover due to less productivity and all-round backwardness, beggary is growing at alarming rate.
At present there are more than half a million beggars in India and if we include among these those persons who occasionally beg, the number will swell into some millions.
