waiting for alms

A little boy sitting on the street asking passerbys for alms. There is a mosque just feet away from where he sits. One of the 5 things muslims must do is give alms to the poor, so you often see lines of beggars waiting outside after friday prayers. Unfortunately in Mumbai kids begging on the streets is a very common sight. Posted by Picasa

That's very sad.
