Poverty, begger's kids and their education

Today I went to Swayambhunath temple for some photography. It is one of the popular destination for tourist and a holy place for Hindu and Buddhist followers. One of the common thing that we see in temples of Nepal is beggars and now a days we see lots of beggars from India begging.

As I was returning, I saw some beggars on the stairs, two of the lady were breast feeding the small baby. There were few others kids too who were playing and 2 of these kids caught my eye. They had a piece of newspaper and they were mumbling. At first I thought they were reading some words from the newspaper, but when I had a close look that the paper it was upside down.

I tried to talk to them in Hindi, they said they were reading from news paper, they know how to read and they go to school also. Looking at their activities, it is clear that they don’t know how to read or write. But it shows that they want to study and want to go to school.

I felt bad when I saw this incident, I don’t care about they are from India or Nepal, but the rights of any children to go to school and study should be protected. Wish some organization working on children should take some action on such matter.

The video is here.
