Bravo India !

After facing allegations of rounding up beggars during the Commonwealth Games, the Delhi government is now drafting a new legislation to facilitate various welfare measures including rehabilitation, shelter and even vocational training to them.

The government is also in the process of creating a detailed database of beggars to finalise allocation of funds for various welfare schemes for them.

"We are drafting a new legislation to deal with the problem of beggary in a humane manner," a top official of the Delhi government said.

He said the government was also considering setting up schools across the city for child beggars.

According to an estimate by the social welfare department, there are around 60,000 beggars in Delhi. Of them, 30 per cent are minors, 69.94 per cent are males and 30.06 per cent are females.

Human rights activists and NGOs have been blaming the Delhi government for forcing hundreds of beggars to leave the city or remain invisible during the course of the Commonwealth Games. However, government had denied these charges.

A homeless beggar in his 60s and a middle-aged shoeshine woman have come to epitomize people's selflessness in supporting the victims of the Sichuan earthquake.

The beggar, named Xu Chao, with long gray hair and shabby clothes, has won wide acclaim in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, for donating money several times.

He started with 5 yuan at a donation center run by the city's civil affairs department on Saturday morning.

In the afternoon, he slipped 100 yuan into the box, muttering: "For the victims in the disaster areas."

His generosity was soon noticed and he became a well-known figure in the city thanks to coverage in the local media.

Many people went up to him on the street to express their admiration and gratitude.

"The victims are in a more difficult situation than me; and I would like to help them however I can," is his standard reply.
