Passing Sorrows on the Street… Saturday, Mar 14 2009 

street-children

As normal children they have born to the world. Who thought that he will be a street child? Who decided it? Everything has decided by society. They should be street children, society has decided.

As a still developing country, poverty is a big issue in Bangladesh. Therefore, today many people are on the street as beggars. Then, who are street children? The children who live on the street with thousands of sorrows are not a new thing for them. Their days are passing with tears 24 hours on the street as usual with their sorrows.

Prayers for God… Tuesday, Mar 10 2009

This is a children in Sri lanka who is live on the road. She is passing her all the days on the road, she is looking at blue sky, wheather it will give an answer to their lives. Stones which are under her legs are not hurting to her heart, but the words which are coming from society are huting them more than anything. Being on the street has labled them as “Street Chidren”.  This concept doesn’t allow them to come over this lable to a happy world. She doen’t have anything to do, instead of praying to god, to give a bliss to her soul.

In Sri Lanka even this is not a common scene, even it is less, they suffer their lives a lot. Thus, as a still develping country if Sri Lanka can reject this small issue, it will make a big development in our small nation. The government should work through these small issues to fing a big strength which can use for the development of the nation. It will provide a big amount of knowledge and  labour.

Therefore, can’t this little child to serve to the development of nation? Really, It will take a big step of countrie’s development.

Buried Liability… Saturday, Mar 7 2009 

   nepal

The streets children are in Nepal are increasing today. Today it is about 5000 children are working and living on the street in Nepal.  Some children are working as child labors to earn money.  Because of population growth, street children are increasing in towns. They are suffering their lives because of poverty, like lack of parents support. Parents are also begging on the street to earn money to cover at least one meal.   Because of the political situation and the conflict condition in country the number of street children is increasing rapidly.

Even they face many problems in their lives; the main problem is, misunderstanding by society.  Society thinks about them as a trouble to society.  Why society can’t realize that it is not a condition which they also like? If society can understand the reality, then the situation of their lives will be better than now in Nepal.

Sting Uncouth Words … Friday, Mar 6 2009 

BANGLADESH MUDSLIDES  

All over the world a big amount of money is spending for the benefit of children. Though everyone is thinking about them, still poverty is there which causes to increase the amount of street children. Even it is a developed country, street children is a common scene.

Age is not a matter, if the child can stand from his legs he can be a street child who beg in front of dollars. Sometimes people don’t care even he is a child. Poverty has pushed him to a deep hollow.  He is suffering in this hollow with lots of tears.  As a child he should get a good education to live as a citizen in society. But, what is happening right now is the children who are on the street are don’t have and no one care about them to give their rights. They spent their every second to beg for their livelihood or the family to earn.

As a still developing country in Bangladesh one million people are living on the street in the capital city, Dhaka while nine million people are living there.  The children who live on the street are enjoying their lives in different ways on tar roads without any top. As we see from the top of the problem, the situation is not matching with it. We think that their main problem is they don’t have food, water. But, they are saying that their problem is torching by others in society.  Even they don’t have money they are saying that they can live with a small amount of food. But, treating them as animals is hard to tolerate in the society.

Their words are hitting me to my heart to think about them more and do something for them. Can I do something for their benefit?

Awaiting for Tomorrow…. Monday, Mar 2 2009 

Bangladesh

 

These are children who are ready to take the responsibility to be in charge of the nation. But, will they do it well? Without education, without knowledge to serve, will they do their duty well?

This picture is in Bangladesh, which is in South Asia. Instead of going to school and get education, this girl is looking after her little brother while begging along road. May be their parents also begging, so they can’t take little child with them. So, this elder child in family is taking care of that little child. This is their days. They are passing their hours like this. Even hundreds of stars light in dark sky for them, at least one star doesn’t look at them. How many societies are their which works for their betterment? But, still tears are in their eyes. When their tears will run away from their little eyes?

Still there is a hope with a great wish. Here I am looking for tomorrow, to see smile in their face.

Blind footsteps… Saturday, Feb 28 2009

To do like this why mother you delivered this child to this world? Even looking at this picture is hurting not only to my heart, but also to my whole life. I feel angry about my self too. Why am I spending this much comfortable life, while someone suffering his life likes this? Sometimes I feel sad, as well as angry about the society. Can’t they do something for them, for the betterment of their lives? Who is responsible for their lives?

The Black Cloud…. Tuesday, Feb 24 2009 

street-children

Freezing winter hours of darkness,

Only you are in sight

Without a top

Passing every second with enormous miseries

Will earth understand them?

Empty stomach, will allow sleeping for them?  

Their tears, their screams….

Will allow them to sleep calmly?

Blind truth…. Tuesday, Feb 24 2009

Children get some food at a platform at the New Delhi Railway Station. Shekhar Sahni said he liked the movie “Slumdog Millionaire,” but wasn’t impressed by the way it depicted street life, except for the on-the-street-training the kids are shown to pick up. “The streets make you smart,” Sahni said. “You grow up fast.”

Eating on the street… Friday, Feb 20 2009 

 

eatingoffthefloor_xiaobin2My mother gave me a lot of food to eat. Whenever I was hungry, she asked me “what you want?” she never allowed me to say “I am hungry.” Before say that she fed us food.  She never allowed us to feel hungry.

But, the world..It’s not bright as we think. This boy is from Nepal. He is a street child. He got some food from someone, even though he doesn’t have a place to eat it. Therefore he sat beside the road to eat it. Dirty air has surrounded him; it mixes with his food also. But, what can he do? Because he doesn’t have a place to go, sit and eat. This is the only place which he can use.

Being a child on the street has taken away from him, even the place to keep his food and eat also. Can you see the question which is coming out from his mouth? “When can I eat my food in a house?”
