Tell me would you be happy ....

Tell me would you be happy ....

Madurai

The real poor ....

He is old, has no social security, no family to look after him so he has to manage all on his own.

The man was living here next to the railway under a bridge on the way to Thiraparangkundram Temple, carved in to the rocks, dedicated to the God Murugan.

This man is not allowed to beg over there since all the beggars of Thiraparankundram Temple have a license and they must be dressed in orange, controlled by the temple office and by dispute controlled by the police. Going to another temple he will be chased by the other beggars defending their territory.

To indicate wich neighbourhood he lives in ... two days later a murder took place under this bridge. Maybe he and the other poor living here are now chased away ....

With the coming elections, government should give a little bit more attention to them too cause no one would like that their father would end up his life like this, I suppose.

Too many sad stories like this wherever you look on around this pretty world. I'm sorry for him as for many...
