Life is miserable… Friday, Apr 10 2009

Black is nice- when it is dark

White is clear – when it is light

Life is wonderful – when it is full of happiness

Life is miserable – when it is full of sorrows

 

Invisible links – of a miserable life

Have connected – a life and a soul

Misery of a strong courage

Is pushing a human life to the society

 

It is true that world is unfair

It is true that we have nothing

It is true that we are humans

It is true that we have the ability

 

Being a human – even a child

Everything has gone – when there’s poverty

This is the reality of life- hard to solve

Will it be a dream? Friday, Mar 20 2009

The reality of street children’s lives has decided their future.

This is a newscast from Afghanistan.

From a torn blanket near a crowded Kabul market, a young child sells jewels for a meager amount one of many children on the streets of the Afghan capital trying to eke out a living.
 
In another district of Kabul, 6-year-old Sami spends his days collecting slivers of wood from rubbish heaps to burn for heat. Like many of Afghanistan’s street children, Sami is not an orphan. But his father is unable to work. So instead of going to school to learn how to read and write, Sami helps support his family.
 
“I’m collecting these small chips of wood so that we can burn them,” Sami tells RFE/RL. “[My parents] send me out to do this. My father says that when I’m finished collecting these things — when I grow bigger — then I should go to school.”

What do you think? Will he go to school someday? Will it be a dream for them forever?

Here comes the sun… Thursday, Mar 19 2009

Here I have a story about a boy named Karim in Afghanistan.

“Karim, a 13-year-old street worker, practices painting, his favorite pastime, at a non-profit school in Kabul, Afghanistan. Later in the day he will collect wood and metal and sell it to buy food for his family. The Afghan Street working Children in New Approach (ASCHIANA) gives street children two meals a day and helps them learn work skills”

Though, society has tagged him as a street child, they have a strength in their mind, to win their lives. Here the happy news is that the organization ASCHIANA, who is persuading the innocent children to their success. I think if there is someone who works for their benefit, it will helpful to reduce their sorrows and to have a better world than now we are seeing.

Until today we were asking that when the sun will rise? Today we have a sign that whenever it will be risen. Still awaiting until the sun comes to the top of the sky.

What we thought? Sunday, Mar 15 2009

In our view, we think that, their mind is asking comfortable lives. We think that they like to study, to go to school and enjoy their lives. Have you ever think or ask about this?

If you ask them, what do you think their answer will be? Will they be like to study? Will they be like to go to school?

I asked them, when I was doing my project on Educational System in Bangladesh from Chittagong children. They said that, they don’t like to go to schools. This life is comfortable for them. We were surprised. We thought that seeing the children who are going schools is hurting them, but the reality is totally different. The concept “poverty” has owned their mind totally. It says that they don’t want to study. They said that being a street child and spending life as a beggar is a comfortable life to them.   Getting education and living as a happy child is nothing for them.

This is because of the concept, “POVERTY”.
