Civic issues, Features and Personalities of Navi Mumbai
Navi Mumbai, the satellite city is a dwelling place for different kinds of people. Our city gives shelter for all cultures, languages and profession. There dwell many orphans, handicapped and even without daily bread. In this multi cultured city of dreams nurturing a new potential profession which could disturb the social balance heavily. Earlier begging was the most uncivilized thing to do in social minds. But today it could offer money and satisfaction than any other profession available. No investment is needed to start this business, but just to create some emotional feelings in others.
Panvel Post is investigating the life of such a woman in the satellite city.
Name: Nazia (name changed
Places for job: between Sanpada and Panvel
Nazia is wearing a clean white colored sari. She looks like 35-40 years old, as a normal citizen in Navi Mumbai. Her day started with a cup of tea in Kharghar and she caught a train for Panvel Direction. She got down at Mansarover station and waited for some time. Then a train for CST has come. She went into a compartment and started distributing a card in a hurry with a gloomy face. As she distributed the cards, she was looking at commuters eyes with an emotional attitude.
The card reads this: “I have a daughter. I wish to get her married. Please help us by providing clothes & 5, 10 or 20 rupees.” It has written in three important languages English, Marathi and Hindi. After distributing cards to everyone, she came back to collect cards and money. She never asked twice for money. But almost everyone gave her notes of ten and twenty and at least 5 rupees.
She went out in Kharghar railway station and took rest for some time. Then she went to the bushy end of the railway station. There she sat down and took the notes outside and separate it into different groups of 10, 20, and 50. After keeping notes in a bag that kept on her waist, she again went to catch a train to CST side. She repeated the same style of begging without any mistake and alighted at the Seawoods railway station.
She went out through the east side and went to some riskshawallas and gave her change and took some hundred notes. It was about 7 notes of hundred rupees. She came out of the station complex and walked through the streets. Then went to a shop and asked for one bottle, the board on shop reads: Wine Shop.
The story of Nazia is not isolated, there are many who trained by experience and become a full term beggar. Readers should be able to understand who need help and who doesn’t.
