Some of you may have read the following story ...but do read on to check out the analysis of the issue and other links.

"Why is sleeping child in the hands of beggars? Have you ever wondered ... " 

""Near the metro station sits a woman of uncertain age. Women’s hair is confused and dirty, her head bowed in grief. The woman sits on the dirty floor and next to her lies a bag. In that bag people throw money. On the hands of a woman, asleep, is a two year old baby. He's in a dirty hat and dirty clothes.

“Madonna with baby” - numerous passers-by will donate money.

The people of our kind- we always feel sorry for less fortunate. We are ready to give unfortunate people the last shirt, the last penny out of your pocket and never think another issue.

Helping, seems like. “Good job done”...

So is it a hoax or a fact:

According to this site:

The message claims that beggars on the busy streets and subways operate in gangs, and to cash people's sentiments - they even hire babies and drug them to sleep. It is a fact, it has happened and is happening in few places around the world.

Begging Scandal with Infants

Begging with infant children in their arms has been an old technique of beggars to cash the sentiments of people. The adult beggars, mostly the mothers, actually make the babies look pathetic so that they will appeal to the sympathy of public. It is sad to know that even infants under the age of 3 are used as begging tools. And unfortunately, some latest credible reports say that this begging business with children has turned into a scandal, where the infants are even drugged for days.

The infants are drugged for two reasons - it makes adult beggar’s work easier, and also succeeds to earn from the sympathy of unsuspecting public. In such cases, the adult beggar is not even the actual parent of the child, the child is in fact hired - rented on a day to day basis. It was shocking to learn that the infants were given doses of depressants like cough syrups, sleeping tablets and even injected with narcotic substances. The adult beggars take these drugged babies in alms and carry out their begging business throughout the day, under hot sun and extreme weather. Under the influence of these drugs, the children sleep for days and end up dying sometimes.
