Funny Beggar’s of Jammu & Kashmir

During my tour to Vaishno Devi I spotted some awesome beggars in Katra, Jammu & Kashmir, they weren’t different than other traditional beggars of India who ages between 5 to 80 and managed by some community leaders.They look like –

  • Normal poor people
  • Old clothes
  • Disabled by force
  • Bold and demanding
Specialty of Beggar’s of Jammu & Kashmir
 
 
Actually they were not asking for the money by saying their copyrighted dialogues like ‘please give some money in the name of God’ while they were asking for the chocolate, cold drink or toy to play and giving no other options.
Even they were too bold to make your fun if you deny.
So be aware and don’t give whatever they want from you, to be honest and kind you should give only to those who really need help.
