Lame Man Walking

No one can help me, so I don’t have any other way except begging. I leave on the street and everyday earn taka 30/40. I am also taking drugs for frustrating my life hood.

                                                           -Zahid, a street bagger & drug user

A lame man is walking on the street at night. His name is Zahid who lost his left leg by suffering typhoid since his childhoods he said, after years he came to Dhaka from his village Bagura north part of Bangladesh and start begging for surviving. He said no one can help me, so I don’t have any other way except begging. I leave on the street and everyday earn taka 30/40. I am also taking drugs for frustrating my life hood. Some time the police pick me up from the street and release outskirts of Dhaka. We suffer a lot but no one can help us for a good job or rehabilitations.

Many impede people living on the street. River erosion, tidal wave and other calamities are turning many village people on the breadline, forcing them to migrant to the capital with the hope of getting some work for a living. The disable people have way out begging.
