It was the eve of Eid Festival, when I was passing by a famous sweet shop, a beautiful little girl aged about 8 caught my attention. She was well dressed and seems to be from a well off family. Until I heard her say, “Uncle…”! This beautiful little girl started begging me for money.
The people of this country are facing poverty. In contrast our statesmen are living a luxurious life. Maintaining the President house costs 1 million per day to the nation. Some of our statesmen rank in richest people in the world, and they are becoming richer by grinding the rights of the people. If it keeps going in the same way, more beautiful innocent faces will be seen begging on the roads.
