Will YOU Help Them ???


I heard something. It sounded like someone crying.I had my head down, traveling in a train to mumbai, when I heard this voice. When I looked up I saw a poor blind man asking for help. He was not alone. His son who was just 3-4 years old was guiding his father .The boy had a bright smile on his face cause he was too small to realize anything. The hands which should be playing with toys were asking for help but nobody bothered .Many people were relaxing in the train. Some reading newspaper, some having tea or coffee and some having their breakfast, but hardly anyone bothered to even look at this man.

After some time I see the same boy very happy. Its rare to see a poor person so happy. The reason for the happiness was only cause he was offered half a cup of tea by a passenger. Never thought half a cup of tea which was hardly anything can make a person so happy. A few minutes later I see that he shared that half a cup of tea with his father. Half a cup of tea is being shared among the poor only cause they dont get much help.

A German friend of mine Talayeh (God bless her) has an infinite love for india which has always been surprising. She keeps on asking me about my country. I always feel proud whenever i get time to reply to her. She has a dream to come to india and has started saving money so that her dream comes true. She asks me about the festivals, about the people, about the food n bollywood. Her questions never end. It has always been fun replying to her but there have been many doubts on what will i reply to her if asked about the poverty in india. Will she have the same passion?? will she have the same love?? will she make the same efforts to save the money for her dream?? will she continue asking me about my country and make me feel proud? The doubts which i had from many months were cleared when i came to know that she is already aware of the all the problems faced by the poor in india. Infact she has started asking me about the name and address of any organisation through which she can help the poor in india. She wants to spend a part of her saved money to help the people in need. The respect for her has increased. A person is ready to delay her dream only to help the people of the country which she loves. I wish I get many such friends like her!!!

Being an Indian there are many things which make me proud but there are few things which disappoint me and make me wonder . Poverty is one of them. Its very sad to see many poor people asking for help but people ignore them and dont treat them like humans. Everyday i witness these things. Today people cant help their fellow citizens. When will people understand???
















I am a person who always expects a lot. Though I have been dissapointed many times offlate even then i have huge expectations from you. I dont know from which city, which state, which country you are??? I request you to please help the poor people in any small way you can. Please dont ignore them. Please treat them like human beings. They are just like you but a bit unfortunate.



You might be relaxing while reading this and might close the window after completing and forget everything and continue your life. Even tommorow you might treat a poor person in a rude way, u might again ignore the person in need. Will you be happy?? Why cant we make sure that we are there for them??


i am not asking for much. I am only requesting you to help the people in need in any small way you can.Tommorow again u will be reminded about the poverty of the country in some way, Tommorow again you will come across few people who need help, Tomorrow again few may ask you for help with lots of hope in eyes. Will YOU help them????

You are a very compassionate person. This I can see from your posts. Regarding your AdSense, ads, it will be good for you to put a link unit just below the header. It will not be obtrusive and will not take up much space. To see how it can be done, look at post Where to paste the Adsense scripts

Nice post!!!

One thing I would like to say is that poverty, human suffering is a universal human phenomenon. plaguing all countries across teh globes- the developed, the developing and the under-developed alike.

But it is good to see you stand up and take notice because that is the first step.

Best of luck to you in your endeavor to help those who need it!

hey dude i agree wid u tht poverty is bad let alone India there r developed countries too which have the same problem but the scale is not tht big as in India and they dont show like they do in India....i donnoif u agree wid me or no the ppl who r poor love the way they r they love the pitty they get out of it i m not talkin of all poor ppl but there r quite a few of them i guess... tell me otherwise y wud u rent the room given to u by government u wud ve gud earnings but will wear rags i m here talkin especially of Dharwai if u know in mumbai....its believed its the richest area in mumbai if u wud do a IT raid there....but it is the Largest slum of Asia....i do agree something needs to be done but dude i guesss life is a two way street and u need to respect the help given to u by others u can not make help part of ur life...ya i feel bad for the boy...but i ve grown so cynical over time i wud really wonder if the man was really blind or was just actiong so tht his boy cud beg....i m sorry but thts also the face of Indian poverty u wud ve to agree.. Begging has become a profession almost i guess in India and it is less by situation tht is done..i think u wud ve read abt a begger being found dead and his bank booj containing details abt the lakhs he had in his bank account and he died on foothpath wid no one arnd.....so dude i donno if ur article is rt wrong but the ppl around us atleast has made me cynical i donno of anyone else....i do and try help those i think r worthy of it nad would appreciate it and not live their life by it but wud make use of it to make their life...on more positive note i wudd like to say tht i ve seen such ppl also rising frm rags to the riches so there is hope and till there is hope i guess there Life....

Its great to see your compassion. Now a days we all have become so mechanical that we only see the things around us & do not observe them. You truly said that even they are human beings created by the same god who has created us but not gave them as much luck as we are having.God has given just one life to us so let us all live,help others to live & make this earth a great place to live.
