The group of men, women and children at the Vashi Station traffic signal are regulars here. They make a daily living by begging. Most of them beg for money. The parents encourage the children to beg, as many people are empathetic towards children begging on the streets.
I carry a few packs of glucose biscuits when I'm out shopping, and give them to the children. After seeing the movie Traffic Signal, I got to know about beggar mafia so I hesitate to help these beggars with money.
What do you think of them?
Traffic Signal by Madhur Bhandarkar is a must watch for those who want to know about the unseen and unspoken reality of life in Mumbai.
