Romit Raj shows concern for child beggars

Romit Raj updated his social networking site"s status showing concern about a small kid crying and begging. It seemed that the incident had really touched the guy. Yes! Romit was moved and says, “Today I was in a very good mood when I left my home for the shoot. I stopped at the signal and a very small kid came to me and begged for money. He had tears in his eyes but was still smiling. His face was charming as well.

The kid was very cute. The incident made me to think that the government bans child labour and yet does nothing for such poor kids who have to beg on the roads. Why do their parents give birth to the kids if they themselves survive on a hand to mouth basis?" asks Romit.

“But a child is an extra helping hand for a poor family; the more children they have, the more alms they get. A child is an asset to beggars. The government has to take some measures like keeping such children in institutions which will provide them with the basic necessities. Their parents need to get operated on, instead of having more children who will have to beg in the streets," adds Romit.

But do you think that the problem will be solved by thinking? “Here is where the problem lies; we have thinkers but not executors." So would you like to be an executor? “I was thinking of starting a NGO for these poor kids. But who will provide the funding? Who will sustain it? It is only the government who can stop this kind of insanity," clarified Romit.

Romit even if you cannot be an executor, you have added your name to the list of thinkers!
