Poverty - The murky Dress of our Country!
First some statistics for you!
  • Its more than 50 years since independence and we are still struggling to eradicate poverty from India.
  • There are 400 million people below the poverty line, out of which 75% are in the rural areas!
  • More than 40% of this population is illiterate
  • The main cause of poverty, is not illiteracy alone, but the exceedingly huge population growth.

I've seen so many pictures of poor and malnourished children and women, but none has affected more than the one you are about to see! Kind hearted guys please help this girl here!. I'm extremely sad seeing this and I'm totally upset today!

LOL. Good one. You got me.

I felt so bad for the girl, I wanted to give her shelter in my house. I hope my wife won't mind my magnanimity :D
