India, an official land of beggars, looking at whom, all we feel is sympathetic and pitiful, is certainly full of surprises. Anything, I repeat, anything can happen in this country. From people earning by being an awful Youtuber like Dhinchak Pooja to being a beggar by profession, you never know what can happen next.
Talking about beggars, we’re back with another surprising article about these beggars around India who are probably richer than you and I are, and it surely will make you feel like a useless piece of shit. Have a look.
1. Bharat Jain
Bharat Jain, 49, a man who belongs from an entrepreneurial background owns two flats in Parel region of Mumbai, valued around 70 Lakhs. He also has rented out a shop to a juice center and charges a rent of about Rs. 10,000 per month. He has mastered the art of begging and easily earns Rs. 75,000 per month, and is really passionate about his work. His family runs a business that deals into study material and school notebooks and has asked Bharat, time and again not to beg, but Bharat wouldn’t care to listen to them.
2. Krishna Kumar Gite
Gite is another amazing professional beggar. He is always spotted near at CP Tank near Charni Road in Mumbai. He earns around 1,500 per day and owns a flat in the area of Nallasopara, where he lives with his brother. However, his brother looks into all his monetary matters.
3. Sambhaji Kale
Sambhaji has a family of four, begs on the streets of Khar region in Mumbai and earns a good thousand bucks daily. He has a flat in Virar, two houses and a piece of land in Solapur. Cojointly, he has made some investments worth thousands and has around half a lakh saved up in his bank.
4. Sarvatia Devi
This woman from Patna is just doing it right. Sarvatia Devi belongs from Patna and is believed to be one of the most famous women beggars in India. She has her own sweet home behind Ashok Cinemas in Patna and her daughter is married and happily settled. She has made some smart-ass investments and pays an approximate of Rs. 36,000 per annum as insurance premium.
“It’s a fun travelling on trains free of cost. I board any train and beg till I reach my destination“, says Devi ji with a joyous laughter.
5. Masu a.k.a Malana
Masu / Malana, however you’d like to call him, in his mid-sixties, is a beggar who is one hell of a swagger. He drives an auto-rikshaw to his begging spot, changes into his begging attire and dedicatedly works for non-stop 8 hours and then rides the same auto back home. He is seen begging right in front of high-end restaurants and his clientele are mostly drunk-celebrities. He owns a property valued 30 Lakhs and other savings which he won’t prefer to disclose. No kidding!
Although our country has several people living below the poverty line, the act of begging is actually systemised and practised with perfection. There are numerous gangs in almost every city who has a gang leader to manage the collective finance. This is how it works.
Feeling like a miserable loser already? So are we. As I write this post, there is another voice inside me suggesting to take up begging as an alternate career option. I’d freaking earn more than what I currently am, have a hold over a particular area and no taxes to be paid! Are you having a similar thought? Henceforth, be careful whenever you give money to beggars. Your one rupee is building up a castle for them. You’d rather give it to somebody who sells something on the signals.
