Cost Of Education


The Ragamuffin boy
Picks up my study book
And attempts
To understand the alphabets
And decipher the figures

Education for him
Is a distant destination
Some fairy land description
Can you feel him?
Such helplessness and
Hopelessness of a destitute

Stripped by destiny
Robbed by fate
Is being poor here
The biggest crime?
His is just another life
Wasted.
above pic taken by me in Sec 18 Noida, the street kid was watching television from the window of a popular eatery.

Being poor is not a crime unless they fall prey. Luxury can make someone rich, but even with less needs life can go on only with satisfaction.

i dnt really agree with dat tho... when sole purpose of your life is next meal then its difficult to think of "satisfaction"...

We find them everywhere. A recent reunion has made me pay attention to the power of a mentor, though one may not ever see it's fruits.

@6degrees i guess more than mentor money is needed ... what is education if u aint have no money..

Whenever i read such posts...i get a bt emotional.I don't think there should have been any thing like poor or pitable in the world.Specially when it comes to children, there should be no dicrimination on the basis of rich & poor atleast.
