Eradication of Beggars India, with a billion plus population has a booming economy, more than half of its population feature in the world's richest list. But still poverty remains the biggest menace today and each of us can help eradicate poverty from our society. Beggars are found in public places like bus stands, near railway station, around religious places, on busy streets, thoroughfares etc. Every district collector/magistrate should be empowered to identify such people with their names (names could be misleading because they may not be having a birth certificate or any other source of valid identification) Once the identification process is over, the next step is to hand them over to institutions like Missionaries of Charity. Meanwhile, both the Government of India and top five hundred corporations of India (Fortune 500 companies of India can come forward under Corporate Social Responsibility) must tie up and forge an alliance with institutions like Missionaries of Charity, under Public Private Partnership (PPP) scheme. The scheme should be aimed at uplifting each and every beggar in India. The suggested scheme under PPP is to fine-tune this expertise so that each and every beggar gets a permanent shelter to live in, get proper food to eat and decent clothes to wear. Once these basic essentials are assured, he/she can be given training on jobs like weaving clothes on loom, art, crafts, and handicrafts and so on with the help of mechanized / semi-mechanized machines. Additionally, the finance organization of such missionaries ought to be of high order, which should be the driving force for corporate to donate money for such social causes. The government can become the facilitator by assuring reservation of quotas for all the goods produced by the beggars. Such reservations can be done in all big malls and duty free shops. Additionally, the government can also mandate export of such products to foreign countries where people love to associate with such products because it is for a social cause. Further, I can add that the above suggested PPP mode is for a very important social cause aimed at eradicating poverty completely by bringing three partners together: one is government, the second is corporate and the third missionaries/institutions like Missionaries of Charity. I am getting more and more convinced that once all these three partners come together to resolve the issue of begging within a time-frame, results would be promising. While formulating the above scheme, government and corporate houses both should aim for complete eradication of beggars from the society within a time frame through this PPP approach. There could be a need for taking the help (hiring) of doctors and psychologists. The PPP scheme should also address these issues while being framed. I hope I have been able to convey some doable thoughts to eradicate beggars completely from the society! I would like to end up this write up with a quote of Mother Teresa: “I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I don’t know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will not ask, ’How many good things have you done in your life’? Rather he will ask, ’How much love did you put into what you did’?
