I was passing through a temple. As usual, there was a line of beggars at the front gate. One young lady was begging " Give me 10 rs madam or atleast 5 rs to satisfy my hunger". An old man was sitting few steps away from this lady. He was begging " Give me 50 paise madam, I am hungry". What a difference in the amounts. Alms are now supposed to be given as per the demand from each beggar is it?? But wait, the old man still seems to be atleast a generation backwards. Obviously, he has not taken the rate of inflation into account while asking for 50 paise.. What say??
